About the Organiser

Weeramantry Centre for Peace, Justice and International Law, India is dedicated to the memory of Late Professor Judge Christopher Weeramantry (1926-2017) who served as Judge of the International Court of Justice (1991-2000).

About the Essay Competition

The Call for Submissions is issued with the following assumptions:

  • COVID-19 pandemic has exposed deep-seated biases in our democracy against vulnerable sections of our population.
  • Law remains one of the best tools to understand, respond and mitigate some of these biases.
  • Any submission is, therefore, expected to either address or critique both assumptions. It can range from identification of the issue to forging a valid response to it.

Authors are expected to critically engage with the legal and policy responses by the jurisdiction of their choice. They can also:

  • Explore the impact of COVID-19 on civil rights and liberties.
  • Assess the role and importance of Internationalism, International Law and International Organisations.
  • Connect the jurisdictional response with the international legal setup.

This is however not a list of superimpositions of ideas. Authors are free to frame and/or identify additional perspectives without losing upon the undertone of justice in their arguments.
