The Office of International Affairs is seeking to support up to five Penn Carey Law students as delegates to the 2024 ASIL Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. The full conference runs from Wednesday, April 3 to Saturday, April 6.
This year’s ASIL Annual Meeting will interrogate the role of international law in an interdependent world. Has international law actually contributed to human connectedness and flourishing, and if so, how? Can we still envision this pursuit while limiting social and political stratification within and among nations? How can international law respond to new challenges posed by greater integration, including the very weaponization of interdependence? Themes to be explored include:
- International Human Rights, Humanitarian Law, and Criminal Justice
- Transnational Litigation, Arbitration, and Dispute Resolution
- International Trade, Investment, Finance, and Tax
- International Organizations, Global Governance, Global Health, and Technology
- Security, Foreign Relations, and Use of Force
- Environment, Sea, Space, and Sustainable Development
Selected delegates will be provided with free meeting registration and accommodations in Washington, D.C., for Wednesday and Thursday night of the conference.
What Is ASIL?
