Dear All: Might you pass this note on to interested individuals? Many thanks JA Hart Publishing and the Editors are proud to announce the launch of the Irish Yearbook of International Law. The Irish Yearbook of International Law is currently seeking submissions on any general topic of international law for the inaugural 2006 edition of the Yearbook. Deadline for submissions is 31 March 2007. For information consult the Yearbook's website at http://www.hartjournals.co.uk/iyil. Please feel free to circulate this note as widely as possible. Thank you Jean Allain, Queen's University Belfast, and Siobhan Mullally, University College Cork The Irish Yearbook of International Law (IYIL) is a new publication presenting critical analysis and up to date information on key developments in international law. On an annual basis, the Irish Yearbook will present peer-reviewed academic articles and book reviews covering general issues of international law. Filling a gap in current scholarship, the IYIL will also include in-depth surveys and analyses of Irish practice in international law. A team of designated correspondents will provide reports on international law developments in Ireland, Irish practice in international and European forums, and recent developments in North-South relations in Ireland. The first edition of the Irish Yearbook, covering developments in 2006, will be published in Autumn, 2007. As the first publication of its kind in this field, the IYIL will become an essential resource for academics and practitioners, ensuring widespread dissemination of Irish practice in international law. In providing a forum for the documentation and analysis of North-South relations in Ireland, the Yearbook will also make an important contribution to post-conflict and transitional justice studies worldwide. Building on a well-established tradition in international law, the Irish Yearbook hosts an Annual International Essay Writing Competition and recently hosted its first Annual Distinguished Lecture which was presented by Dr. Mary Robinson at Iveagh House, Dept of Foreign Affairs, Dublin. Further details of both items are available on the Yearbook's web-site at: http://www.hartjournals.co.uk/iyil. (Please note that the website is currently under construction. Full details regarding the essay writing competition will be circulated next week). The IYIL is published by Hart Publishing, Oxford, and is edited by Jean Allain, Queen's University of Belfast and Siobhán Mullally, University College, Cork. Full details of the IYIL's editorial board is available on the Yearbook's website.
