The Secretariat of the Asian-African Legal Consultative Organisation (AALCO) is pleased to announce a Call for Papers to be published in a forthcoming issue of the AALCO Journal of International Law. The AALCO Journal of International Law provides a forum to present and analyse emerging issues in Public International Law having a bearing on the legal interests of developing countries.

This issue does not focus on any particular area of international law. Hence, submissions can be sent on any topic/area of contemporary relevance within the different branches of international law. Submissions can be in the form of long articles/essays, short articles or commentaries on current developments.

We welcome submissions from academics, practitioners, government officials, Judges, research scholars and post-graduate students. Kindly note that the final decision on the publication of submissions will be made by the Board of Editors, AALCO Journal of International Law. Submissions can include full length papers between 6,000 – 8,000 words in Microsoft word format, short notes between 3,000 – 5,000 words, and commentaries on case law as well as current developments. The prescribed word limits are inclusive of footnotes and contributors are generally expected to strictly conform to them. The submissions, which are to be sent only through e-mail, shall be accompanied by an abstract of not more than 250 words. All submissions must be attached with a covering letter mentioning the name of the author, occupation, title of the submission, mobile phone number and contact address for future reference.
