Call for Blog-Posts on: Teaching and Researching International Law – Global Perspectives

 

Afronomicslaw.org and the Teaching and Researching International Law in Asia (TRILA) programme of the Centre for International Law at the National University of Singapore are delighted to announce a joint Symposium on the subject of Teaching and Researching International Law. The Symposium will combine essays that are invited and that are selected from the submissions responding to this Call. We welcome essays responding and reflecting on the issues and perspectives raised by the report on `Teaching and Researching International Law in Asia’ recently released by the Centre for International Law.

The TRILA Report presents a comprehensive assessment of the state of international law teaching and research in Asia. It provides detailed empirical data on issues such as teaching techniques, the uses of technology and textbooks and materials used, and combines this with reflections by scholars on the challenges they face and how they might be addressed. The focus of the Report was on Asia, but it is hoped that it will be a useful vehicle for teachers everywhere to reflect on their own practices and consider them where relevant in a broader comparative light.  The Report is also intended to contribute to the global discussion now taking place on the teaching and researching of International Law.

 

The deadline for submission of blog posts is July 15.  The selected blogs will be published as a Symposium on Afronomicslaw.org in August.
