Call for editor for Springer Global Encyclopedia of Territorial Rights (Guest post by Kevin W. Gray)




Dear Colleagues,

I am writing in my capacity as General Editor of the Springer Global Encyclopedia of Territorial Rights. We are looking to add an editor for the theory section to the project.

The aim of the Encyclopedia is to provide a comprehensive treatment of every major issue in territorial rights in the world today and every significant topic in the theory of territorial rights. The previous Section Editor was unable to continue with the project and we are looking for nominations (including self-nominations) of individuals interested in the project. We welcome nominations from scholars at every stage of their careers.

The Theory Section Editor or Editors will have a unique opportunity to shape the project by soliciting articles from scholars in the field. There are approximately 160 entries in the subsection for which authors will have to be solicited. Ideally, this is an excellent opportunity for a scholar or scholars to contribute to a large undertaking that hopes to be a central reference work in the field for many years to come.

Complete information about the project is available here:

Any interested academics are asked to send a short letter (which could be included in the body of an email) and a CV to In that letter, please describe your interest in the project and how you would proceed to recruit authors. We also welcome nominations from small groups of individuals who wish to serve as co-editors, particularly where such group nominations increase the geographical diversity of the project or adds other diverse perspectives to the Encyclopedia.

I hope to name the person or persons chosen shortly so that articles can be solicited during spring 2023. Most of the other sections of the Encyclopedia are nearing completion so getting the section finished will be a priority.

Best regards,

Kevin W. Gray, JD, PhD
