International Law Weekend 2020
American Branch of The International Law Association
Call for Panel Proposals
Deadline Extended: June 30, 2020
The American Branch of the International Law Association (ABILA) is glad to announce our call for panel proposals for the International Law Weekend 2020 (ILW 2020) — the premier international law event of the fall season. ILW 2020 is scheduled to be held virtually on October 22-24, 2020.
The ILW Organizing Committee invites panel proposals to be submitted online by June 30, 2020 at https://forms.gle/8UQrAsqAX72t38FY7. Please note that proposals will only be accepted through the online ILW Panel Proposal Submission Form.
The theme of ILW 2020 is International Law in Challenging Times, as follows.
From shifting political alliances to changing trade and economic relations, the world around us is undergoing profound transformations. The backlash against globalization has resulted in increased suspicion of multilateralism – and escalating populism. Yet, the world is more interconnected than ever. Our economic system relies on interconnectivity. To stop the spread of the coronavirus and address climate change, international coordination is paramount. What is the role of international law in this changing and often contradictory world? What could and should international lawyers do? How can international institutions become more successful both at addressing the challenges facing them and in winning state and popular support?
ILW 2020 will explore these issues through a diverse collection of engaging and provocative panels. We expect the audience to include practitioners, academics, U.N. diplomats, business leaders, federal and state government officials, NGO leaders, journalists, students, and interested citizens. We plan to have a broad array of both public international law and private international law topics in each program time slot.
When submitting your proposal, please consider the following points:
