Conference Theme

Inside the Venn: International Law at its Intersections

Practitioners and academics working in International Law are more than ever existing at the intersections of laws, resolving problems with new rules, new institutions, and recalibrating them as global and regional circumstances change. Where international law converges, competes, or co-exists with domestic and regional legal orders, practitioners of (international) law increasingly require subject matter experts to deepen otherwise traditional spheres. 

In 2023, the CCIL Annual Conference will examine cross-jurisdictional, and interdisciplinary dimensions of International Law. The creation of international law occurs at intersections in a Venn diagram: domestic and international, or cross border regulation; international law and the social sciences; resource management, environment, climate change, indigenous protections, and economic development; international financial regulation, criminal law, and law of the sea; international trade and investment; dispute resolution; humanitarian law and international human rights. International governance of financial institutions and resource management have growing intersections with multiple sub-fields of international law, traditionally seen as independent.
