|Utrecht Journal of International and European Law is issuing a call for papers in relation to its forthcoming 80th edition on ‘Privacy under International and European Law’. With information gathering and sharing techniques becoming evermore advanced, States are being forced to take a stand on their permissible cost for individual privacy. As the international legal system struggles to keep up with the irreversible process of globalisation, its role in regulating these competing interests is coming under increasing discussion.
The Board of Editors invites you to submit papers addressing any legal issues relating to privacy and international law from an international or European law perspective.
While this edition is primarily concerned with privacy and international law, relevant issues may have broader implications, including: the responsibility of private actors under international law; privacy as a human right; the conflict between State interests and individual rights; the internet and territorial limits; data protection; diverging national approaches to the protection of privacy and the rise of cybercrime. All types of manuscripts, from socio-legal to legal-technical to comparative will be considered.
The Board of Editors will select articles based on quality of research and writing, diversity and relevance of topic. The novelty of the academic contribution is also an essential requirement. Prospective articles should be submitted online via our website (www.utrechtjournal.org/about/submissions) and should conform to the journal style guide. Utrecht Journal has a word limit of 15,000 words including footnotes. For further information please consult our website or email us at [email protected]
Deadline for Submissions: 30 September 2014
