Towards international peace through international law

27 June 2014

University House, 3rd-5th of July 2014.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the first world war. In response, this year's Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Society of International Law (ANZSIL) has chosen to focus on the theme 'Towards international peace through international law'.

Themes for discussion will reflect on the ways international law and international lawyers have influenced efforts to achieve international peace over the past century. Particular include disarmament, how international law has responded to changes in the nature of warfare and the interplay of complex ideas such as peace, security, justice, equality and self-determination.

The conference is hosted by the Centre for International and Public Law, ANU College of Law. There are reduced conference and day pass rates for students; registration closes the 1st of July. More information is available on the conference website.
