Conference: Litigating International Law Disputes: Weighing the Options

Macquarie Law School's Centre for Legal Governance will host a conference on "Litigating International Law Disputes: Weighing the Options," on September 23, 2011, in Sydney. Here's the idea:
"Litigating International Law Disputes" will provide a fresh understanding on why states resort, or should resort, to international adjudication or arbitration to resolve international law disputes. Through an examination of different substantive areas of international law—such as human rights, trade, environment, investment law—the speakers will consider the reasons for the use of international litigation, as well as other modes of dispute settlement. An examination of Australia's particular experience in litigation will provide a further opportunity to explain resort to international litigation.
