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: (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.
