CCIL 50th Annual Conference - Call for Proposals

Theme: Getting International Law Back on Track?

The 50th Annual Conference of the Canadian Council on International Law will be a virtual conference October 20-22, 2021.

The theme of this year's conference is: Getting International Law Back on Track?

At its 50th Annual Meeting in 2021, the Canadian Council on International Law (CCIL) invites policymakers, practitioners, academics, and students of international law to reflect on whether and how to get international law back on track. Some questions that the participants could address include:

  • Have shifts – political, social, economic, or otherwise – derailed the development of international law in lasting ways?

  • Does international law’s structure help or hinder its ability to adapt? How might the structure of international law adjust to achieve its goals?

  • Should international law’s institutional infrastructure be re-designed to account for new voices and to address today’s social challenges?

  • What subjects participate in making and changing international law? Should international law’s accommodate new subjects?

  • Can innovations at the regional or bilateral level, or action by cities, subnational governments and industry, advance international law?

Additional information on the theme and the submission process is available by clicking the link below.

Submissions should be submitted no later than by end of day on Thursday, April 15, 2021.
