JLMI Call for papers - Issue no. 1/2023


The Laws of Economic Sanctions and Innovation

This thematic call concerns the first Issue of Volume 2, which is a joint initiative with the Master in International Trade Law of the International Training Center of the ILO. It is to be published at the end of March 2023 on The Laws of Economic Sanctions and Innovation. The Call aims at gathering contributions that analyze to what extent innovation and technology play a role in the regulation and implementation of economic sanctions which States adopt against other States, such as the restrictive measures recently addressed to Russia.

Two perspectives may especially come into relevance:

  • First, innovation and technology as a tool, i.e. their role in the design and implementation of sanction regimes;

  • Second, innovation and technology as an object, i.e. the way sanctions target, concern or involve innovation and technology.

Prospective articles should be submitted in the form of abstract (around 800 words) or draft articles (see below) to submissions.jlmi@iuse.it by August 31, 2022. The Editorial Board plans to notify Authors on the outcome of the selection process by September 10, 2022. Final articles shall be delivered by December 10, 2022 and should conform to the journal style guide that is based on OSCOLA (link here; short version here). It is the Authors’ responsibility to carefully align their paper to OSCOLA’s criteria. Also, each accepted Author must guarantee English proof reading of their paper. Typically, the JLMI accepts contributions within the range of 10,000 to 15,000 words, including footnotes, but both shorter and longer articles will be considered. Pre-selected articles will be subject to single-blind peer review. For further information, or for consultation on a potential submission, you can contact us by email at editors.jlmi@iuse.it.
