ICLQ Announces 2020 Annual Lecture and Young Scholar Prize Winner

ICLQ Announces 2020 Annual Lecture and Young Scholar Prize Winner

Each year the Editorial Board of the International and Comparative Law Quarterly selects one of the best papers of the previous 12 months for presentation at BIICL in London as a lecture.

We are delighted to announce that the Annual ICLQ Lecture this year will be given by Professor Philippa Webb and Dr Rosana Garciandia, both of Kings College London, based on their article published in Vol 68(3)

  "State Responsibility for Modern Slavery: Uncovering and Bridging the Gap".

The article examines the phenomenon of slavery - prohibited by international law for more than a century, yet contemporary forms currently affect more than 40 million people - from the perspective of the responsibility of the State which has been largely overlooked as a perpetrator in modern analysis.

The event, chaired by ICLQ Editor in Chief Professor Sir Malcolm Evans OBE KCMG, will also provide the opportunity to present the 2020 Young Scholar Award to Dr Benoit Mayer of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, for his article "Climate Assessment as an Emerging Obligation Under Customary International Law" in Vol 68(2). Dr Mayer will present his article and his wider research in conversation with Professor Evans, and will be given a certificate along with £250 worth of Cambridge University Press titles of his choice.

booking is now open for  the ICLQ Annual lecture  will take place on 2nd March 2020 in the Weinrebe Room in the newly-renovated BIICL premises in Russell Square, and will be followed by a reception generously sponsored by Cambridge University Press,  who publish the ICLQ.
