A Symposium on the Future of International Law and Global Governance
Dates: Thursday 6th and Friday 7th June 2013
The School of Law, Swansea University
This symposium brings together a group of experts to discuss themes from Professor Joel Trachtman’s new book, The Future of International Law: Global Government, published by Cambridge University Press this year.
It also provides an opportunity to welcome Professor Trachtman to the School of Law, as Distinguished Research Professor of International Economic Law.
Many of the most significant challenges we face now and will face in the future do not respect national borders and defy solution through state law alone. International law will need to step up and expand to address these challenges.
Whilst this might mean that international law will expand in scope, it will still have to link to a number of other institutions that address these challenges, including transnational law, the law merchant, private international law and harmonisation of state law.
This symposium addresses these and other concerns as they are addressed in Professor Trachtman’s book. Coverage is partial and selective, with the aim of promoting discussion.
