Conference: ESIL Biennial Research Forum

The European Society of International Law's second Biennial Research Forum will take place September 28-29, 2007, in Budapest at the Eötvös Loránd University. The program is here. Why attend?

The Research Forum’s main aim is to promote the exchange of fresh ideas between both junior and more established scholars. As this is the first event organised by ESIL in Central and Eastern Europe, its concentration is on issues currently affecting the region. Two fundamental questions are addressed:

1. What is the role of classical international law in the region, when the expectations and aspirations of both politicians and the society at large are dominated by the European Union?

2. Have countries of the region realised that by joining the developed world’s organisations they should also share in the developed world’s global responsibilities?
