In Resolution 1888 (2009), the United Nations Security Council urged Member States to investigate and prosecute conflict-related sexual violence and established the UN Team of Experts on Rule of Law and Sexual Violence in Conflict (Team of Experts) to assist national authorities in this regard. To commemorate the tenth-year anniversary of its establishment, the Team of Experts in collaboration with the Journal of International Criminal Justice, invites submissions for an upcoming special publication on “Justice and Accountability for Sexual Violence in Conflict: Progress and Challenges in National Efforts to Address Impunity”. The Team of Experts and the Journal invite submission of Abstracts (400-500 words) and a brief biography/publication history of contributors on the themes and questions described above, or related areas of interest, by 8 May 2019. After a review of the Abstracts, in mid-June, the editors will invite a number of contributors to submit full papers of no more than 8000 words (including an Abstract and footnotes) by 23 September 2019. All papers submitted to the Journal are subject to its double-blind peer review policy: the editors will hope to have a decision for contributors by 30 November 2019. A pre-publication meeting, where some of the contributions will be discussed in greater depth, may be organized in New York in late 2019. It is expected the Special Issue of the Journal will be published as its first issue in March 2020. Post-publication events will also be organized in 2020. The full call is available on the Journal’s website. For further information, and any questions, including on the Journal’s style sheet, please contact the Journal’s executive editor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
