International and Comparative Law Quarterly Announces Publication of New Forum

The International and Comparative Law Quarterly (ICLQ) proudly announces the launch of the ICLQ Forum, a special issue of the journal dedicated to showcasing the breadth of topics that fall within the thematic scope of the Journal.

Each Forum will focus on a single theme, allowing for in-depth analysis of its multi-faceted dimensions, diverse expert perspectives and novel approaches, stimulating new avenues for research while benefitting from the rigorous academic scrutiny and support of the ICLQ editorial process.

Drawing on the expertise of scholars from around the globe, papers will be sought in a variety of different ways, such as an open call for contributions. In line with our commitment to inclusivity and promoting diversity in scholarly publishing, the ICLQ will actively seek out research from early career academics and under-represented communities to help ensure a balanced representation of voices in academic discourse.

Under the stewardship of a team of Co-Editors drawn from the Editorial Board of the ICLQ and its home institution the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL), along with invited experts, the Forum will benefit from a double-blind peer review process and be subject to our usual high quality editorial control.

The ICLQ Forum will be available both online and in print. Authors will have the option to publish their work Open Access to further promote dissemination to a wide audience.

The inaugural Forum will focus on 'Law of the Sea: Present Challenges and Future Directions' and will be co-edited by former ICLQ General Editor Professor Sir Malcolm Evans, ICLQ Editorial Board Member Professor Richard Barnes, invited expert Dr Rozemarijn Roland Holst, and Dr Constantinos Yiallourides and Dr Jack Kenny of BIICL.

The Call for Papers is out now and can be found here.
