The ESIL Interest Groups on International Economic Law and on History of Internationation Law, together with Ghent University, KU Leuven, and UC Louvain, are organising an online roundtable on “Missing Histories of International Economic Law Adjudication: Extraterritorial Quarters of the Past and the Present”.

Courts operating in ‘extraterritorial quarters’ or districts as dispute resolution mechanisms have been overlooked in international economic law. Whether in the form of courts acting in special zones (e.g., International Zone of Tangier, 1923-1956; Qatar Financial Centre, 2005-present) or the retired common law judges acting in small ‘market-dominant’ jurisdictions, the ‘extraterritorial quarters’ offer unique cases of international economic law adjudication where multiple legal systems collide within one single city.  

The event will take place online on Tuesday 31 January 2023, 15:30-17:00 CET.
