March 2020: As we are all painfully aware, the impact of the spread of COVID-19 is leading to numerous cancellations, suspensions and performance challenges in international transactions, in addition to the crucial health concerns. Legal doctrines such as force majeure, changes in circumstances, hardship, impracticality, impossibility, frustration and the like are implicated.
Those doctrines vary in their necessary elements and in the factual circumstances that potentially trigger their application. Moreover, differing jurisdictions have adopted differing doctrines, both between common law and civil law systems and within those systems as well. Those differences can create outcome-determinative controversies, particularly in international disputes.
We therefore invite proposals for articles on the subject matter for publication on TDM. For this subject, we expect to receive proposals from authors who can demonstrate experience with the topic, whether scholarly or practical.
