Call for proposals!

Routledge Law presents new series, Routledge Cultural Heritage in International Law Book, with series editor Professor Valentina Vadi. 

International cultural law is a rapidly developing and extremely diverse field of study. Many lawyers are developing an interest in the field and many non-lawyers are starting to show interest in the law that affects their own areas of specialization. The interest in the subject area has been rising over the past two decades globally, as these issues affect every jurisdiction. 

This book series welcomes proposals for monographs and edited collections that focus on cultural heritage and international law. For preliminary expression of interest, or for submitting book proposals, please feel free to contact Professor Valentina Vadi (v.vadi@lancaster.ac.uk) or Emma Tyce (Emma.Tyce@tandf.co.uk).
