Welcome to SIEL
The Society of International Economic Law (SIEL) is a membership organization aimed at academics and academically-minded practitioners and officials in the field of IEL, in all parts of the world. The broad goals and objectives of the organization include:
Building links and networks between and among IEL academics and academically-minded practitioners and officials;
Fostering the development of local IEL expertise and IEL organizations where needed;
Representing the discipline of international economic law as appropriate in global, regional and national fora; and
Encouraging research, practice, service and teaching in the field of IEL.
SIEL will act as an umbrella organization, fostering co-ordination, collaboration and debate between IEL scholars and practitioners and national or regional IEL organizations around the world. It will be academically focussed, genuinely global in its reach, and highly inclusive - not only in its membership but also in terms of the expertise and interests of participants. It will focus, at least in the short term, on making links between IEL academics from all parts of the globe, disseminating IEL research, and building an online library of publicly accessible material to facilitate the teaching and learning of IEL worldwide.SIEL aims to involve as many people as we can, particularly younger scholars and those from the developing world. Membership rates have been tailored to be accessible to all, regardless of their location and position, so please join us today, by joining online.
