Volume 28 of the Max Planck Yearbook of United Nations Law: Special Forum on “Challenges and opportunities for the law of the sea in times of crisis:The Max Planck Yearbook of United Nations Law (UNYB) invites interested authors to submit proposals for abstracts in fulfilment of our open call for papers for our next volume, which will include a special thematic forum on the Law of the Sea. International law is under increasing pressure to adapt in order to be able to respond adequately to various crises around the world. Maritime issues seem to be at the heart of many contemporary challenges to which international law must react. In particular, the general question arises as to whether the law of the sea is able to adequately respond to developments that were not yet foreseeable when the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), the “constitution for the oceans” (UNCLOS), was adopted.TTB Koh), was adopted more than 40 years ago. Is it more resilient to current crises compared to other bodies of international law? Or does this body of law require greater adaptability and contingent action?

In an effort to address this issue and in light of these dynamic developments, UNYB is publishing a special call for papers that offers participants a thematic forum to critically assess the law of the sea in the context of contemporary crises in international law. The deadline for receipt of abstract proposals is August 1, 2024The full call for papers and submission guidelines can be found here.
