The 28th Helsinki Summer Seminar on International Law – ‘Sovereignty, Territory and Jurisdiction’  will take place from 17th to 28th of August in Helsinki (Finland), and it is open to students, researchers and practitioners with a keen interest in the topic.

The aim of the Seminar is to analyze how these concepts of Sovereignty, Territory and Jurisdiction affect and have affected our understandings of international law. In order to investigate the underlying assumptions, the Seminar will bring together a wide range of views from e.g. international law, political theory, geography, philosophy and history of international legal thought. During the two weeks participants will have an opportunity to engage in lectures and workshops led by scholars and practitioners specializing in the topic.
