Call for papers for Volume 12 (2021)

The Czech Yearbook of Public & Private International Law invites contributions to its volume 12 (2021).

In 2021, the Yearbook will commemorate in particular three anniversaries that may also serve as examples of more or less successful codification of international law: Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations (1961), Articles on Responsibility of States for Internationally Wrongful Acts (2001) and Articles on Responsibility of International Organizations (2011). In addition to the topic focused on the achievements and obstacles in the codification of law in those important areas, the volume may also reflect some aspects of the Convention on the Status of Refugees (1951) and the commencement of activities of the Permanent Court of International Justice (1921).
