The theme of ASIL’s Annual Meeting, held April 6-9, is Personalizing International Law. As we emerge from one of the most isolating years in our memories, we invite reflection on how international law is experienced by individuals, communities, business organizations, and other non-state actors, the ways in which these actors shape international law, and how states might react to these efforts. From those combatting disease, seeking asylum, facing unemployment, resisting eviction, or struggling to access basic nutrition, to others who may just be wondering “what is the relevance of international law for me?” – this year’s Annual Meeting focuses on how people, independently or collectively, interact with international law.
