The Minerva Center for Human Rights at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv University, the Delegation of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Israel and the Occupied Territories and the Emile Zola Chair for Human Rights at the College of Management Academic Studies are organizing an international conference that seeks to evaluate - 50 years after 1967 - the past, present and future of the law of belligerent occupation, using the Israel-Palestine context, as well as other relevant situations of occupation and domination, as case studies.

The Athens Public International Law Center (AthensPIL) of the National and Kapodistrian
University of Athens Faculty of Law is hosting, in the context of the Investment Law Initiative, a
Colloquium on ‘International Investment Law & the Law of Armed Conflict’, which will

Following successful symposia at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands (2015) and the University of Coimbra, Portugal (2016) the chairs of the Housing Law Research Network invite abstracts for a Housing Law Symposium to be held at Malmö University, Sweden. Full papers are not mandatory although publication in Studies in Housing Law (Volume 3) will be available for selected papers (subject to full peer-review). There will be a symposium dinner in a well-regarded local restaurant and the opportunity to visit the nearby ancient university town of Lund.
We are pleased to present a new research project on challenges in pre-investigations or ‘preliminary examinations’. Such examinations are required to determine whether there is reasonable basis to proceed with criminal investigation. They afford the prosecution wide discretion – be it in national or international jurisdictions – and often involve a large degree of uncertainty for those directly concerned.
The general topic of the conference is post-conflict justice and the relevant strategies for securing justice in the context of the Ukrainian conflict. The conference will bring together leading international scholars, judges, and lawyers. It will address different aspects and models of post-conflict justice, and help determine key elements of post-conflict justice which would be the most adequate to the circumstances in Ukraine.
All interested scholars and practitioners are invited to submit a paper to the conference on one of the following topics:

International conference: Challenging human rights disenchantment 50 years on from the ICCPR and ICESCR
Jus post bellum as a concept has gained significant attention in past decades. Scholars have identified certain normative principles underlying transitions from conflict to peace, such as retribution, reconciliation, restitution, reconstruction and proportionality. However, few attempts have been made to clarify how such principles relate to concrete dilemmas in transitions from conflict to peace, and what guidance the law provides.
The Center for Enterprise Liability (CEVIA), Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, INTRAlaw, Department of Law, Aarhus University, the SMART project, University of Oslo, welcome proposals for papers/presentations at the International Conference on CSR and Enterprise Liability, which will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark on the 6th and 7th October, 2016.
