Special Section:
Sovereignty, Territory and Jurisdiction

DEADLINE 16th of October 2015

In public international law the concepts of sovereignty, territory and jurisdiction are often seen as inextricably linked. The forthcoming special section of the Finnish Yearbook of International Law of 2015 seeks to offer a forum for discussing the relationship between these complex concepts. The aim is to analyze how these concepts affect and have affected our understandings of international law. In order to investigate the underlying assumptions, the Special Section hopes to bring together a wide range of views from not only international law but also from political theory, geography, philosophy and history of international legal thought.

Those interested in publishing an article in the “Sovereignty, Territory and Jurisdiction” special section of the Finnish Yearbook of International Law should submit a manuscript conforming to the FYBIL house style by 16 October 2015. The manuscripts should not exceed 15,000 words in length including footnotes unless justified by the subject matter.

The guidelines for authors interested in contributing to the next issue are to be found at the link below. Please read through the document carefully.
