Symposium 2014

Private Actors, Global Impact: The Private Production of Regulation in Transnational Trade

 

The University of Pennsylvania Journal of International Law’s 2014 Symposium, Private Actors, Global Impact: The Private Production of Norms in Transnational Regulation, will focus on the production of norms by private actors in the field of international trade and how industries adapt to follow these non-governmental regulations.

The goal of the conference is to discuss the relationship between private and public production of legal norms in the transnational context. The Symposium shall address the relationship between transnational private orderings and international public law in three fields: the airline industry, natural resource extraction, and the production of intellectual property law for traditional knowledge.
