ASIL IEL Interest Group Activities
At the request of the chairs of the ASIL International Economic Law Interest Group (Amy Porges and Tomer Broude), I’m posting the following about the Group’s upcoming activities:
Readers of the blog who will be in Washington on April 10 are invited to the annual business meeting of the International Economic Law Interest Group of the American Society of International Law, from 7:45 am to 8:45 am Thursday, April 10, in the Longworth Room at the Fairmont Hotel (2401 M St. NW, Washington DC). Come have coffee and bagels, and talk about the Group’s programs for the coming year – including a conference scheduled for October 2008 in Washington DC on The Politics of International Economic Law; a West Coast colloquium to share research on international economic law, to take place in early 2009 at UCLA; and more. Anyone is welcome who is interested in the work of the Interest Group — including those who are not registered for the ASIL Annual Meeting, and those who do not currently belong to ASIL.
The ASIL Annual Meeting this year will include a Finance, Trade and Investment track of panels within its theme of The Politics of International Law — further information is here. The IEL Interest Group is co-sponsoring two panels; one on International Law and the Fight Against Corruption (Thursday, April 10: 2:45pm-4:15pm, Executive Forum) and one on The New Politics of Regulatory Cooperation: The Case of Food Safety (Friday, April 11: 9:00am-10:30am, Roosevelt Room).
