Work On! ASIL seeks 2013 meeting proposals

It's that time of year again: the American Society of International Law is seeking ideas for the program of its 107th Annual Meeting, to be held April 3-6, 2013, in Washington, D.C. The theme will be International Law in a Multipolar World, about which organizers write in part:
'While the United States is arguably still the only superpower and the European Union remains the largest economy, the world is undergoing major change. China, India, Russia, Brazil, and other States in Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa are increasingly active voices in international institutions, such as the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the World Trade Organization, and have started questioning the dominance of the West in these organizations. ... [A] new set of actors is moving onto center stage. In the process, these actors are seeking to reshape international rules governing trade and finance, military force, the environment, and beyond.'
How the international legal order will adapt to this multipolarity will be the question examined throughout the meeting, from "a range of voices and perspectives."
To contribute to that range -- that is, to propose a panel or program on which the Program Committee can build the meeting -- click here (where you can also find the full call for proposals).
The deadline for submissions is Friday, June 22, 2012.
