Call for Submissions: Rutgers University Law Review 2024 Symposium Issue - Global Democratic Decay and the Rule of Law

Posted by Sandra Halbing, community karma 29
The Rutgers University Law Review is seeking written submissions and panelists for its upcoming symposium regarding global democratic decay and the rule of law. 

On April 12, 2024we will host wide-ranging regional discussions examining topics including authoritarian pushback against democracy in Hong Kong and the impact of Russia's ongoing war against Ukraine. Symposium contributors will consider broad trends, anticipated developments, region-specific hurdles or highlights, and their own personal experiences in advocating for democracy. We plan to contextualize all discussions under the international rule of law. We hope the symposium will be a fruitful avenue to consider the role of the international legal community in preserving democracy and protecting human rights. 

We are seeking articles between 10,000 and 14,000 words and essays between 4,000 and 6,000 words. Written contributions may have a regional focus or a broader focus on the international rule of law.
 Please submit papers via Scholastica or email to 

Thank you.
