World Meeting of Societies for International Law at the Peace Palace in The Hague
On 2 and 3 September 2019, Prof. Peter Van den Bossche participated, in his capacity as President of the Society of International Economic Law (SIEL), in the Rencontre Mondiale des Sociétes pour le Droit International / World Meeting of Societies for International Law at the Peace Palace in The Hague.
Prof. Van den Bossche contributed to the panel discussion on "Which Societies for International Law(s)?".
The panel was based on the general idea that while some Societies are oriented almost exclusively towards public international law, others largely welcome specialists from related disciplines. This panel also focused on the role of Societies specialising in particular branches of international law (criminal, economic, maritime, investment, arbitration, etc.).
