Jose Aleman, Editor-in-Chief of the Stanford Journal of International Law, writes in with this seemingly quite Lawfare-relevant announcement:
As the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 Commission Report approaches, the recurring dispute over the boundaries of the post-9/11 national security state is once again in full swing.  Governing Intelligence will move beyond the surveillance debate to start an interdisciplinary dialogue about the power and limits of intelligence agencies from a comparative and international perspective.  The Stanford Journal of International Law (SJIL) seeks contributions by academics, practitioners, and policymakers in the form of approx. 10-15,000-word scholarly essays or 5,000-word white papers on either of the following topics: (a) National Intelligence & Transnational Threats; or, (b) Individual Rights & Intelligence Gathering.
Please send a 1-2 page abstract of your essay or white paper in Word format, a C.V. of the author(s), and point of contact information to by 5:00PM PST on February 1, 2014. Decisions will be released on a rolling basis. Shortlisted authors will be invited to make a panel presentation based on their working paper at the journal’s Symposium on May 2, 2014.  Although acceptance of the invitation is not required to receive an offer of publication, priority will be given to shortlisted authors who accept the invitation to present at the Symposium.  In the case of presenters, a draft presentation paper will be due by April 25, 2014. The full announcement, along with sub-topics and submissions guidelines, can be found here:
