Conference: International Law and Time

On June 12-13, 2015, the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies will host a conference on "International Law and Time." The program is here. Here's the idea:
Time is an inherent component of many of the most important international law concepts. However, it also fundamentally determines international law as a field. International law has been in constant dynamic change since its inception. Capturing and understanding this change in time is one of the discipline’s fundamental challenges, as is the difficulty of working with the constantly changing materiae of international law in practice.
