News from the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law:

Mark Somos won a Heisenberg position. The MPIL will host a five-year Heisenberg project starting on 1st October. The project seeks to uncover an unknown aspect of the history of international law by examining all surviving copies of the first ten editions of Hugo Grotius’ seminal De iure belli ac pacis. The project will map their dissemination around the world, and will analyse all hand-written annotations left by four centuries of readers, including major figures in the history of international law.
