Yearbook of International Disaster Law
Call for Abstracts
Vol. No. 2 (2019) – Deadline for abstracts: 31st October 2019
ABOUT THE YIDL
The Yearbook of International Disaster Law (YIDL) aims to foster the interest of academics and practitioners on legal and institutional issues relevant to all forms of natural, technological and human-made hazards, including rapid and slow onset disasters, but excluding events such as armed conflicts or political/financial crises per se.
The goal is to provide a forum for innovative research contributing to the international legal and policy debate related to prevention, mitigation, response and recovery phases in disaster scenarios.
The YIDL is a double-blind peer review journal published by Brill/Nijhoff and is available in printed and on-line form.
STRUCTURE OF THE YIDL
1. Thematic Section: this section includes articles focused on a specific topic. For Issue no. 2 the selected topic is “Disasters and…” in order to explore the intersection of disasters with other areas of international law and theoretical approaches.
2. General Section: This section contains articles addressing any topic relevant in the area of international disaster law.
3. International disaster law in practice: This section provides overviews and analysis on legal and institutional developments relevant for disaster scenarios, arranged according to international organisations, geographical areas and branches of international law.
4. Bibliographical index and books reviews: this section contains a bibliographical index and reviews of books related to international disaster law published in the year in review.
