Asian Society of International Law 2009 Conference: Call for Papers

by Peggy McGuinness

The Asian Society of International Law announces the “Second Biennial General Conference of the Asian Society of International Law,” at the University of Tokyo, August 1-2, 2009, which takes up the important issue of Asia’s relationship with the international legal order under the main theme of “International Law in a Multi-polar and Multi-civilizational World – Asian Perspectives, Challenges and Contributions.”

The Organizing Committee cordially invites paper proposals and/or submissions for the event and has posted guidelines for proposals for papers, panels, discussant papers and agora papers. All presentations will be in English and all papers not in English must be accompanied by an English language translation. Speakers must be members of the Asian Society (membership in the Asian Society is free until April 2009.)  The conference organizers are interested in participation by both academics and practitioners.

The deadline for panel proposals is December 31, 2008; the deadline for papers for “regular” panels is January 31, 2009; and the deadline for discussant papers in the plenary session and agorae papers is February 28, 2009.
