The Austrian Review of International and European Law (ARIEL) is an annual peer-reviewed publication that provides a scholarly forum to discuss issues of public international law and European law, with particular emphasis on topics being of special interest to Austria. It focuses on theoretical as well as practical questions and current developments in all areas of public international and European law. Apart from a digest of Austrian Practice in international law, encompassing pertinent judicial decisions, executive as well as parliamentary documents, each volume contains both longer analytical articles, as well as shorter notes dealing with current developments.

The editors invite all interested persons to submit contributions for volume 28 (2023) of the ARIEL. This issue would like to focus on implications arising from the increase in inter-state complaints / proceedings on obligations which are owed to both states and individuals. Potential topics might include questions on the interplay between the fields of human rights and state responsibility (and/or potentially diplomatic protection), the relationship and tensions between the objectives and types of reparation awarded in parallel inter-state and individual proceedings, the effect on procedural conditions such as the exhaustion of local remedies, the problem of parallel proceedings and ensuing issues (eg litispendence, res judicata), potential risks and challenges arising from the increased resort to erga omnes partes proceedings, or, generally, new trends in case law. Authors are encouraged to take a multidisciplinary approach, drawing from legal, political, and social perspectives. We welcome papers that address these questions and challenges, offering fresh insights, critical analysis and innovative solutions.

Further details are available in the call for papers. The deadline for submissions is 29 February 2024.
