I have the pleasure of announcing a conference I'm organizing, entitled The Creation of International Law: An Explanation of Normative Innovation, Contextual Application, and Interpretation in a Time of Flux. It will be held in Oslo, Norway, on August 6 and 7, 2010, and is hosted by the Research group on Internationalisation of Law and the Department of Public and International Law at the University of Oslo Faculty of Law, in cooperation with the Rights, Individuals, Culture and Society research group and the Natural Resources Law research group.
Our intention is to create a network for women scholars and practitioners to support their engagement in international public law.
We've invited women scholars from across the globe to present papers addressing challenges in relation to the creation of international law from theoretical or contextual perspectives. Papers to be presented will discuss sources, actors, law-making, interpretation, dispute resolution, and practice in selected fields of international law. Analyses will elaborate on how international law, at the national, regional, and international levels, is affected by economic crisis, trade and investment instability, war, forced migration, international criminal networks and climate change.
