New Blog: AJIL Unbound

The American Journal of International Law has inaugurated its new blog - AJIL Unbound. Here's the first post:

The American Journal of International Law is pleased to introduce this experimental edition of AJIL Unbound. In this edition, we include the contributions emerging from the AJIL’s open Agora requesting short reactions to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum Co. It includes submissions that appear in the October 2013 issue of AJIL, Agora: Reflections on Kiobel, as well as a number of contributions that appear for the first time on the web. We hope to formally launch AJIL Unbound as an exciting new online publication and blog that will feature web-exclusive essays, symposia, and timely commentary on the latest developments in international law.

We seek readers’ input on what they would most like to see in AJIL Unbound. We hope that AJIL Unbound will enrich international law scholarship in at least three important ways:

1) Fostering debate and discussion;

2) Providing key source material such as images, court documents, and maps; and

3) Bringing you even more scholarly content that is both immediate and relevant.

The publication of the inaugural edition AJIL Unbound presents an opportunity to hear from you, our readers. Over the course of the next week, this blog will host its first virtual symposium: a series of thought-provoking blog posts from contributors to this most recent Agora. We also welcome readers’ suggestions of what they want to see in future editions of AJIL Unbound. Kindly send these suggestions to the editors in chief of AJIL at

Be sure to bookmark AJIL Unbound, and stay tuned tomorrow for a blog entry by Anupam Chander!
