Call for Rapporteurs: Oxford International Organizations

Oxford International Organizations (OXIO), a database of annotated documents pertaining to the law of international organizations, is welcoming applications for Rapporteurs to join the project. Rapporteurs will have the task of identifying relevant materials and providing a short legal commentary on these documents. Rapporteurs will be paid £35 (or £70 worth of OUP books) for each accepted document, as well as a £100 book bonus for every fifth document. 

The commentary will follow a template and should not, in principle, exceed 1000 words. Exceptions may be made with the consent of the editorial board in relation to particularly significant documents. Publication in the database will be at the discretion of the Editorial Board and its directors, and each annotated document will be published under the name of its author.

Annotated documents are published on the Oxford Public International Law (OPIL) website, which provides integrated access to OUP’s ground-breaking international law online resources that are essential for anyone working in international law.

Applicants should possess:

  • A Masters degree in international law (a PhD is an advantage), or relevant experience in the law or practice of international organizations;
  • Good analytical skills and the ability to identify documents relevant for the advancement of knowledge of the law of international organizations;
  • Current or past affiliation with a specific international organization would be an advantage.


Applications should include:

  • a CV;
  • a short statement highlighting the applicant’s experience and/or knowledge of the law of international organizations;
  • a brief list of materials which, according to the applicant, would warrant inclusion in the database. This could be specific to the organization with which the applicant has been or is affiliated, or be thematic, identifying materials which address a particular issue or set of issues.


Applications should be addressed to Professor Jean d’Aspremont and Dr Kiki Brölmann and sent to oxio.editors@gmail.com
