On February 25-26, 2014, the College of Law, Qatar University will host a conference on "The Syrian Crisis and International Law," in Doha. I noted the call for papers here. The program is here. Here's the idea:

The College of Law, Qatar University is organizing an international conference focusing on ‘The Syrian Crisis and International Law’. The conference is scheduled to take place on the 25th and 26th of February 2014, in Doha (Qatar). Invited speakers will include academics, diplomats, activists and legal practitioners who will discuss different aspects of International Law applicable to the Syrian crisis. The conference aims to not only revisit the tragic events that have occurred but also, most importantly, to think ahead in the quest for peace and justice. The overall objective is to exchange ideas and suggestions on the future of the rule of law in Syria.
