Seems like a great symposium although I was quite shocked to see that only Muslim/Christian perspectives are shared under the semi-universalist title 'Religion and International law'. Religion is much more than Islam/Christianity. One should be either blind or intentionally misleading to choose such a title for a clearly specific centered conference.
