A new issue of The Baltic Yearbook of International Law – Volume 17 (2017/2018) 1, has been recently published. The number contains the articles:
Hent Kalmo, „Principles and Pragmatism in State Succession: Bargaining in the Economic Affairs Commission of the Tartu Peace Conference“, pp. 1–23
Jaanika Erne, „On the Borders of Law, History and Politics: Estonian Statesman Jüri Jaakson’s Views and Life in Context“, pp. 24–38 [For years I was determined to devote an article to my Dad and I expected this article to be published by his 85th birthday that was expected to take place on November 30, 2019. History went differently.
This article, too, while focusing on the life and work of the Estonian politician and Statesman Jüri Jaakson (1870–1942), gives an overview of the changing and contingent contexts that influence the formation of law. Methodologically this article is an attempt to connect legal research with a conceptual history analysis.]
