Four organizations -- the European Society of International Law, the American Society of International Law, the European Journal of International Law, and the Hague Institute for the Internationalisation of Law project on Private Transnational Regulatory Regimes -- will sponsor a conference entitled "Global Public Goods Symposium: Global Public Goods and the Plurality of Legal Orders" on October 24 and 25, 2011, at one of the world's loveliest academic sites -- the European University Institute, located in the hills above Florence, Italy.
Among the speakers listed on the Draft Programme are ESIL President Anne Peters, Columbia's Katharina Pistor, Geneva's Laurence Boisson de Chazournes, and Notre Dame's Mary Ellen O'Connell, an IntLawGrrls guest/alumna.
Issues to be discussed:
► [W]hether and how the co-existence, interaction, and antagonisms of different legal orders (international law, domestic law, EU law, regimes established by private actors) and their driving agents (regulators, contract-makers, and courts and tribunals) contribute to creating and maintaining global public goods.
► [T]ransatlantic perspectives on how different legal orders may contribute to the production and management of public goods.
