Finding Protection for Refugee Culture in International Law — The Michigan Journal of International Law

"Humanitarian crises that provoke refugee crises also may impact the survivability of the cultures of asylum-seeking groups – particularly where they become a minority group in their new country. More state involvement is necessary to protect and maintain the cultures of these refugee groups."

Volume 41.3, MJIL's Emerging Scholarship Issue, is hot off the press!

We're extremely proud of this issue, which features:

1. Ndjodi Ndeunyema on water's mixed status as a human right in treaty, custom, and principle.

2. Donna Minha on whether and how the ICC can prosecute corporate climate crimes.

3. Nadia Alhadi on the three kinds of peacetime human trafficking cases that the ICC should begin prosecuting ASAP.

4. Michael Goodyear in defense of the world's existing conventions for the protection of cultural property--if they could only get more signatories.

5. Jeff Xu on how Chinese resource-for-infrastructure agreements, like the Sicomines Agreement, vary from traditional international project financing arrangements--and how those differences may create additional value and liquidity for developing countries, but may also confound future dispute settlements.

6. Darío Maestro, through the lens of ECJ rulings and the Law of the Sea, on how the multiplicity of fora for international disputes creates both positive and negative effects for international law--and how the negative effects can be curbed.

This is the final issue of Volume 41. Thank you to our outgoing editorial board and to our fantastic authors!

Volume 41.2 is now live! Thank you so much to our authors and editors for all their hard work. Highly recommend reading:

1. Chrystie Swiney on the intersection of urban policy and international law (a fascinating look at the influence of cities on international law).

2. Tiyanjana Malawu (former chief counsel of the OAU!) with the first comprehensive assessment of the contributions of African treaty law onto international law.

3. Haochen Sun (associate prof of law and director of the law and technology center at the University of Hong Kong) on the long-neglected UDHR “human right to technology.”

4. Matt Catallo on the role of defense counsel at the ICC, and how structural flaws make it difficult for the accused to have effective counsel.
