General Information

Journal of International Law and Comity (JILC) is published by Weeramantry Centre for Peace, Justice and International Law (Weera Centre). It is a double peer-reviewed, open-access, biannual journal premised on the principle that scholarship should be generated on high ideals of positive change in the field of public international law.

With Advisory Board members steering us from across the globe, we are pleased to invite submissions for our forthcoming Issue. Contributions that engage with pressing questions of human rights, environment, disarmament, peace, justice, and equity in international law are particularly welcome. Authors can explore any area or aspect of international law, provided it has a significant human or non-human impact. Those who do not come from a law background but intend to write on something ancillary to international law, are also invited to contribute after getting in touch with the editor through email and sharing broad outlines of the proposal.
