- The Sheffield Centre for International and European Law at the University of Sheffield, with the support of the Society of Legal Scholars, is delighted to invite you to a one-day conference on ‘The Changing Character of International Dispute Settlement‘ with leading academics and practitioners on 6 December 2019. The conference takes stock of the expansion of the system of international dispute settlement (IDS) and the risks of fragmentation stemming from the multiplication of IDS institutions with overlapping competences. It explores opportunities for the development of IDS in new fields such as cyber law and space law. In the face of the resurgence of isolationism and protectionism, it also questions whether existing IDS mechanisms have the legitimacy to deal with issues involving public interests, such as health, environment, and human rights. For more information, including a full programme of the conference, go here.
