Call for Papers (English)

Greetings from the Editorial Board of Pangea, an online publication run by students at the University of Puerto Rico School of Law. By means of this Call for Papers we wish to extend an invitation to those interested in forming part of our endeavor to promote debate on and awareness of International Law.

Recognizing the rampant globalization of the 21st century, and that the University of Puerto Rico is an educational institution that aims to both remain in the vanguard of these international forces, as well as incorporate novel means to promote learning, we believe that it is of utmost importance for us to count with a forum dedicated to themes related to International Law. By creating this virtual space, the founding members of Pangea aimed to disseminate and stimulate debate around the most recent developments in both Public and Private International Law and Comparative Law. They also aimed to promote discussion of topics related to International Relations, which constitutes an integral part of the configuration and constant transformation of International Law. With this in mind, the Editorial Board of Pangea is focused on publishing articles authored by individuals hailing from various academic and professional backgrounds. This publication is open to experts and professionals on the relevant subject matters, as well as students. Our published material is divided in the following categories: notes, opinion pieces, articles and special investigative series.
