About the European Hub of the Global Network of Centers for Internet and Society (NoC)

The European members of the Global Network of Centers for Internet and Society (NoC) launched the European Hub in October 2017 with the aim to  support cooperation between internet researchers in Europe and to strengthen European internet research on an international level. The Hub serves as a regional chapter of the NoC, as foreseen in the NoC Roadmap 2017/18.

Independent and interdisciplinary research on the opportunities and challenges of digital technology and innovation stands at the core of the Hub’s work. Potential endeavors embrace the creation of a common European research agenda, regional workshops and conferences, as well as the development of guidelines and ethical standards for internet research.

As a digital publication format which has aimed to contribute to overcoming obstacles of traditional publishing and to foster transboundary discourses in international law since 2014, Völkerrechtsblog is pleased to organize a conference on open access and global justice. The conference will explore and further theorize the effects of the digitalization of scholarly communication on international legal scholarship by bringing together different perspectives and experiences. While contributions discussing experiences during the pandemic are welcome, the framework is broader. We are particularly interested in voices from the “Global South”. Where do scholars, blog and journal editors, librarians, teachers, and platform providers see the chances and where limits of digitalization for scholarly communication in international law?  We want to question, discuss, and critically analyze the conditions and infrastructure of scholarly communication in international legal scholarship.

Deadline: 1 March 2022
