The London Conference on International Law: Engaging with International Law
3-4 October 2019
London, UK
What is the use of international law and how do we engage with it? Over the last few years, the focus appears to have been on disengagement. Yet, at the same time, international courts and tribunals are busier than ever before, while domestic courts have an increasing engagement with international legal issues. Likewise, international law features to a greater extent than ever before in the conduct of public life and debate.The London Conference on International Law will bring together international law academics, judges, practitioners, representatives of civil society, business-leaders, and other stakeholders to see how States and all other actors engage with international law.

2019 European Society of International Law Conference
12-14 September 2019
Athens, Greece
Hosted by the European Society of International Law, the conferences' underlying theme will be that of sovereignty, and it's changing nature. State sovereignty, both one of the fundamental principles as well as an underpinning of public international law, is facing numerous contemporary challenges that call into question its basic foundations. It is ever relevant to revisit sovereignty, a concept so broad and yet instrumental to the current structure of the international legal order. Thus, the conference aims to encourage a vigorous and fruitful exchange of ideas on the normative, theoretical, and practical aspects of sovereignty, which will appeal to academics, researchers, students, and practitioners.

“BORDERS HERE, THERE, EVERYWHERE” – Association for Borderlands Studies Annual Conference​

24-27 April, 2019

San Diego, California, USA

The organizing theme for the 2019 annual conference is “BORDERS HERE, THERE, EVERYWHERE” – these are non-contiguous borders such as airports, seaports, but also logistics platforms and transportation networks that straddle past national physical boundaries, state and provincial boundary lines whether they are territorial or even legal/regulatory limits, even sometimes virtual; they are connecting the local with the global nexus; Some of them are a-territorial in nature (an exception in the past – the new norm today), and often, they are superimposing themselves onto traditional territorial borders, which remain prominent but are at the same time profoundly transformed. These affect the flows of goods, and also human mobility occasionally in murderous ways. They are here, there, and possibly, everywhere, and can be found in the middle of cities miles away from international boundary lines.

 2019 People & the Sea Conference

24-28 June 2019

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

This jubilee conference, which is preceded by a policy day (June 24, 2019) and flanked by other events, takes time as its theme. In full awareness of the major ongoing changes in the knowledge industry and how people interact with coasts and seas, we first delve into the past: what have we learned, and to what extent are we making the most of these learning opportunities? From whom should we be learning, and how do we engage in the learning process? To what extent are the insights of earlier generations of social scientists studying maritime affairs and coastal life still relevant to us? We then look forward and ask ourselves what social scientists can contribute to understanding and dealing with coastal and maritime challenges of the future. Topics range from the increasing intensity of storms and their implications for navigators and coastal inhabitants, to plastic pollution and conservation measures, the travails of travelers and the expansion of coastal cities, the fate of long-time inhabitants such as fishers and indigenous people, trends of coastal and ocean grabbing, the regulatory pursuits of planners, officials and scientists, and the ethics of technology.  What perspectives and skills do we have to offer to science and the world; what are our strengths and where do our limitations lie?
