The Conference theme this year, “Asia and International Law in the 21st Century: New Horizons” drew a host of excellent papers and discussions over the course of three days. The call for papers described the conference theme:
A number of great papers were presented. The Conference Schedule can be accessed here.Governments, scholars, and civil society in Asia are actively engaged in all facets of the development and implementation of contemporary international law. Asia's leading powers are no longer "emerging" but have emerged. There is, nevertheless, great diversity around the region. While countries in the Asian region may regard certain issues as of particular concern to them, those issues are generally also of great moment in other regions and/or at a global level. This conference will seek to share perspectives on emergent dimensions of international law from around the Asian region, broadly defined, and from beyond.
A summary of the paper follows.
