American Branch’s centennial year: International Law Weekend

Vår amerikanska systerförening American Branch of the International Law Association (ABILA) firar också 100 år i år.

Each October, the American Branch presents International Law Weekend (ILW) in New York City. This two-and-a-half-day conference features over 30 panels, and many of the world’s leading international lawyers and diplomats participate.

International Law Weekend 2022 is scheduled for October 20-22, 2022.

The unifying theme for ILW 2022, held during ABILA’s centennial year, is The Next 100 Years of International Law, as follows:

On the occasion of ABILA’s centennial anniversary, International Law Weekend 2022 invites reflection on the past and future of international law. Which foundations from the last century of international law should remain in the next century, and which should be reimagined? Today, the international legal order faces extraordinary challenges—threats to the peace, persistent economic and social inequalities, environmental and global health risks, and populist isolationism. Yet there are also many ways that international law has succeeded over the past century in resolving differences, keeping the peace, protecting human rights, and facilitating human flourishing. Present circumstances offer the opportunity to reevaluate the core features of international law. ABILA’s centennial ILW will explore the areas of international law that offer robust solutions, and those that require reinvention.

Registration for ILW 2022 will open in mid-August. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required to attend the conference.
