Call for Papers: Eighth International Conference of the Indian Society of International Law

The Indian Society of International Law has issued a call for papers for its Eighth International Conference, to be held in New Delhi on February 23-25, 2012. The theme is "Emerging Concerns in Public International Law." Here's the call:
The objective of the Conference is to highlight and discuss the emerging legal concerns in public international law and put on record the Indian scholars' thinking/views on it. In recent years, some core principles and norms of public international law have been challenged and attempts have been made to reformulate norms and institutions to perpetuate hegemonies and other attendant evils associated therewith. The Eighth International Conference plans to reinvigorate themes that have generated lively discourses among policy and opinion makers and academicians such as (I) Intervention and International Law, (II) ICC and the Crime of Aggression, (III) Prohibition on Torture and Enforced Disappearance, and (IV) Nagoya Protocol and ABS of Genetic Resources.
