- Oñati International Institute for the Sociology of Law
Progessor Paliwala send this message:
Greetings from Warwick. My friend Professor Picciotto has just been appointed Scientific Firector of the Onati International Institute for the Sociology of Law for 2 years from 1st September 2009 and he has asked my advice on the following. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated:
“The Institute is now looking for a new Publications manager. In view of the importance of the shift to electronic publications, and since it already publishes two electronic journals, it is very important that the new person should have knowledge and experience of electronic publishing. I´d therefore appreciate any help you could give in locating any such person who might like to live in the beautiful Basque country. It could be a UK-based person who might be interested in a move, or perhaps you have contacts through the ELJ project to people un Spain or elsewhere, e.g.a newsletter un which we could advertise the post. The IISL publishes mainly in English, but obviously some knowledge of Spanish, or even Basque, or at least a willingness to learn, would be important too.”
