The Asian Society of International Law
has issued a call for papers for its 4th Biennial Conference
, to be hosted by the Indian Society of International Law
in New Delhi
, November 14-16, 2013. The theme is "Asia and International Law in the Twenty-First Century: New Horizons."
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Asian Society of International Law was established in 2007. Following three successful biennial conferences, the next biennial conference of the Society is to be hosted by the Indian Society of International Law in New Delhi, from 15 to 16 November 2013.
Theme of the Conference
Governments, scholars, and civil society in Asia are actively engaged in all facets of the development and implementation of contemporary international law. Asia’s leading powers are no longer `emerging’ but have emerged. There is, nevertheless, great diversity around the region. While countries in the Asian region may regard certain issues as of particular concern to them, those issues are generally also of great moment in other regions and/or at a global level. This conference will seek to share perspectives on emergent dimensions of international law from around the Asian region, broadly defined, and from beyond.
Topics of Papers
To this end, proposals for papers are now being invited on any of the following topics:
- Anti-dumping and safeguards
- ASEAN-related special issues of International Law
- Climate change
- Competition law
- Conflict of laws relating to marriage, adoption, surrogacy and custody of children
- Emergent issues in international human rights law
- Evolving positions in relation to R2P
- Intellectual property rights
- International commercial law/enforcement of foreign judgments
- International investment law (including resolution of international investment disputes)
- Key elements of sustainable development for Asia
- Law of the Sea; Piracy; Maritime Security and Safety in the Asian region
- National implementation of the WTO’s and RTAs’ commitments in the Asian countries
- Peaceful Resolution of International Disputes in Asia (including resolution of International Trade and Business Disputes in Asian countries)
- Regulating the internet
- The Asian-African Legal Consultative Organization
- The contribution of civil society to international law and the growth of `bottom-up’ processes of international law creation and implementation
- The teaching, research and practice of international law in Asian languages
- The turn to history in international law
- Third World approaches to international law
The Organizers seek to encourage the participation in the Conference of all persons interested in international law all over the world, whether established or junior scholars, academics or practitioners, government officials and NGO officers, by inviting applications for positions as panelists. Papers may provide an Asian perspective on these topics, and/or international/comparative approaches to the listed topics.
