CYIL 2014: The Role of Governmental and Non-Governmental Organizations in the 21st Century
Governmental same as Non Governmental Organizations are gaining global importance in all areas of human activities. Be it a commercial purpose of International corporations or protection of human rights and environment of INGOs and NGOs, or even maintenance of economic cooperation or establishment of free trade zones or international peace and security of Intergovernmental organizations to name just a few, these activities have imminent impact on our day-to-day life. The topic raises many important question: What are the roles of these organizations in the new millennium? As many have emerged after the WWII during the onset of the bipolar division of the world, are they functioning effectively in globalized world of today? Are actions of such organizations legitimate? These are just few of prima facie issues which could be dealt with in the upcoming volume of CYIL. The topic of the contribution depends really on the type of chosen organizations and the editors really don’t want to limit the authors with the enumerative list of issues to be dealt with. As the topic suggest primarily views through the optic of public international law, any contribution covering the topic from the national or constitutional perspective including comparative analyses shall be welcomed.
CYArb 2014: Independency and Impartiality of Arbitrators
Independency and impartiality are indispensable prerequisites for the duly execution of the function of the arbitrator. There are initiatives on international level to create non-binding guiding principles covering these topics (IBA Guidelines for example) but the local praxis and sometimes also the international could differ due to non binding nature of such unification. The topic was intentionally chosen to cover this problematic in its widest sense and provide the authors with space to share their thoughts from their domestic experience and bring in a comparative insight from local same as international praxis.
CYIL 2015: International Transportation
International transportation lies at the heart of the international business, because no business or even country is self-sufficient. Therefore this topic is omnipotent and covers issues of local or domestic same as global importance. From this point of view, to name just a few, the problematic of transportation of freight or passengers, import/export customs or free trade unions and international organizations fall under the scope of the topic. But we don’t want to limit the authors in the extent of possible topics. Articles covering the topic from a comparative domestic/international perspectives are also very welcome.
CYArb 2015: Interaction of Arbitration (Arbitrators) and Courts
The arbitration proceedings are not self-sustaining. Even if the arbitration lie outside of the system of the national court system at the place of arbitration, the local courts play important role during, same as after the end of the arbitral proceedings. Therefore, this topic invites for full spectral analysis of the interaction of the arbitral tribunals and local courts during the arbitral proceedings when the local courts execute its supportive and controlling functions same after the end of the arbitral proceedings in relation to enforcement or annulment proceedings. Again, the comparative analyses are warmly welcome, be it of national arbitration law with international rules or between international rules. Because this is a general topic, any kind of arbitral proceedings (commercial, consumer, investment, sport…) could be covered.
