The Centre for International Governance and Justice (CIGJ), Regulatory Institutions Network (RegNet) is pleased to announce a ‘Festival of International Law’ in October.

This two day workshop is one of three Festival of International Law events looking at new research directions in international criminal law.

Events related to the role of international law in the relationship between Israel and Palestine are also part of this Festival.

Please contact Michelle Burgis-Kasthala to express your interest in attending.

The workshop on ICL will comprise three keynote lectures from Professors Kamari Clarke (Carleton), Darryl Robinson (Queens) and Gerry Simpson (Melbourne/LSE). The workshop also comprises a number of panels exploring the relationship between ICL scholarship and interdisciplinary actors and interests as well as normativity. Time is also devoted to considering publishing and teaching in ICL as well as the role of practice.
