We pleased to announce the first annual Journal of International Humanitarian Legal Studies Prize, which recognises the best article by an author under the age of 35 or within 8 years of completion of their PhD published in the Journal during the previous year.
For 2019, a committee composed of members of the editorial board exceptionally chose to make a joint award, giving the prize to two excellent articles:
- ‘Inked or Not: Maras and Their Participation in El Salvador’s Recent Armed Conflict’ by Ximena Galvez Lima (Geneva Call) and
- ‘Shifting from Autonomous Weapons to Military Networks’ by Léonard Van Rompey (University of Copenhagen).
Congratulations to both authors! Our publisher, Brill, has kindly made made the articles open access for a month.
