Conference on Tangible and Intangible Cultural Heritage through Past, Present and Future: The third edition of the International Symposium on Heritage in War and Peace will be held under the following theme: “Tangible and Intangible Cultural Heritage through Past, Present and Future”, 18 January 2024 – 19 January 2024, which will take place in Bologna, Italy. This theme invites participants to look in greater depth at the very notion of cultural heritage. It proposes to focus on diverse aspects of heritage protection in conflict and peace, conceptualize more critically the notion of tangibility and intangibility, address heritage issues beyond planet Earth and put forward innovative ways to deal with heritage preservation and management.
The event is organized by the University of Bologna, McGill University and University of Mississippi, in collaboration with Sapienza University of Rome, Pisa University, Palacký University Olomouc and Universities Network for Children and Armed Conflicts. Information on the event and the call for papers are available here. Abstracts are due by 30 September 2023.
Gaetano Arangio-Ruiz and the Future of International Law: University of Westminster, 29 September 2023 15:00-17:00 BST. This panel will reflect on the scholarly legacy of Professor Gaetano Arangio-Ruiz, who passed away on 29 September 2022 at the age of 103. A former member of the UN International Law Commission, of the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal, and of the Institut de Droit International, Gaetano Arangio-Ruiz has shaped the research and practice of international law until the very end of his life, when in 2017 he published his last monograph. His publications have focused in particular on the legal personality of states, international organisations, international courts and tribunals, the rights of states, and state responsibility. He was a prolific author who has influenced the research in these fields by publishing in English, French, and Italian.
One year after his death, this panel aims at reflecting on the impact of Gaetano Arangio-Ruiz’s scholarship on the development and the future of international law. While remembered by Italian academia in a series of events and publications, internationally, his death and legacy received less coverage. This panel will bring together generalist international lawyers from outside Italy, with different background and expertise, to discuss topics pertaining to the law of international organisations, the law of international courts and tribunals, and state responsibility. The event will be in hybrid form (online and in person). The event is free but registration is needed. For more information, click here.

Keynote speeches will be delivered by Caoilfhionn Gallagher (human rights lawyer, and Ireland’s Special Rapporteur on Child Protection) and Kristian Lasslett (Professor of Criminology at Ulster University and Executive Board Member of the International State Crime Initiative).
