European Society of International Law (ESIL) - 3rd Biennial Conference

ESIL’S 3rd Biennial Conference, ‘INTERNATIONAL LAW IN A HETEROGENEOUS WORLD’ organised in association with the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law, will take place in Heidelberg on 4-6 September 2008.

This is the third biennial conference organized by ESIL, the first having been held in Florence in 2004 and the second in Paris in 2006. The main aim of the conference is to generate a scientific exchange concerning European perspectives on international law. In order to enhance this ambitious project the conference will be open to up to 350 participants from all over Europe and beyond.

The conference is entitled: “International Law in a Heterogeneous World” and this topic reflects an idea which is central to the ESIL philosophy. Heterogeneity is considered to be one of the pillars upon which Europe’s contribution to international law is built and the subject will be considered in a total of 16 panels, two keynote speeches and one concluding round table. All of the events have been scheduled in order to leave sufficient time for discussion.

The Call for Papers concerns two different types of events. Firstly, 8 panels that directly address different aspects of the main topic of the conference. These panels, called Fora, will each consist of a Chair and four papers, selected on the basis of the Call for Papers. Secondly, 8 panels that do not directly address the topic of the conference but should stimulate the exchange of views on specific thematic areas of international law. These panels, called Agorae, will consist of a Chair and four panelists, also selected through the Call for Papers.
