Call for Papers – The Potential of Public Interest Litigation in International Law workshop
The University of Exeter and the Université de Geneve are organising a workshop on ‘The Potential of Public Interest Litigation in International Law workshop’. The workshop will be held on 11-12 November 2021 either in person or online, depending on how the pandemic evolves.
International courts and tribunals play a pivotal role in the international legal order. They provide for a peaceful alternative for the settlement of disputes, and they interpret and uphold the law. However, the political and legal landscape has evolved drastically since their creation – especially in the last thirty years. One aspect of this evolution is the growing interest in using international courts in the public interest. But this comes with a set of challenges.
Deadline for submissions: 30 April 2021
