The Bocconi University, with the support of the European Society of International Law, is organising a webinar on ‘Covid-19 and International Law – Novel Strain or Old Wine in New Test Tubes?’ The webinar will be held on 15 December 2020 from 1:30-6:00 pm.

As the blogosphere breathlessly attests, the COVID-19 pandemic and the reactions of states to it have thrown up a host of issues of international law. There is talk in the international legal academy of a turning point … as there was last time something big and out of the ordinary occurred. To what extent is this talk justified and to what extent is it just hype? The webinar will examine these and more specific questions of international law raised by the current global health crisis.
