Australian and New Zealand Society of International Law 20th Annual Conference Wellington, 5-7 July 2012 -- Call for Papers 

This Conference is the Society’s twentieth annual conference, and provides an opportunity to reflect on the last twenty years in the development of international law, but equally important to look ahead to the emerging issues and to speculate on what the next twenty years will bring for international law and its practice and teaching. The relentless progression of climate change, the political revolutions and uprisings in the Middle East, the relationship between the growing economic and political power of countries outside Europe and North America and their approach to international law and diplomacy, the sharpening of debates over food security, the inability of the United Nations to reform its institutional arrangements relating to international peace and security, the fragility of the international financial system and popular movements challenging its morality and legitimacy, the resurgence of fundamentalisms, and the continuing disgrace of widespread poverty, are just some of the issues with which papers might engage.

The Committee would welcome papers exploring significant conceptual or practical shifts in the development, substantive content, implementation, teaching or practice of international law.
