CCIL Scholarly Book Award 2022 - Call for Submissions

To recognize the work of Canadian scholars of international law, the CCIL conducts a competition for scholarly books (every two years) that make a substantial contribution to the international law literature.


Any member of CCIL may submit a book published during the two calendar years prior to the year of the award. Thus, books eligible for the 2022 award will be published in 2020 or 2021.


  • The same book may not be submitted more than once. Co-authored books may be submitted if the primary author is eligible to submit a book. The committee will only accept one book per author. Edited or coedited books will not be accepted. Dissertations published as a book are accepted.

  • If the selection committee determines that none of the submitted books in a competition makes a substantial contribution to the international law literature, it may decline to select any book for the Award. The selection committee may use its own discretion in making these determinations and the decisions of the selection committee are final.

  • ​Any award will be made at the CCIL Annual Conference in Fall 2022.

All submissions must be made by 1 May 2022.

Mail five (5) copies of the book to:
