Asian Society of International Law
International Law and a Dynamic Asia
Ha Noi, 14-15 June 2016
Call for Papers
The 2016 Regional Conference of the Asian Society of International Law will take
place in Ha Noi, Viet Nam, hosted by the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam.
The Conference will consist of plenary sessions and a number of agorae. In
addition, the Conference will feature two special agorae on the Trans-Pacific
Partnership Agreement and the establishment of the ASEAN Community - two
remarkable developments in 2015.
The Conference provides an excellent forum for speakers to share innovative an
doriginal ideas in wide-ranging areas of international law with a view to
stimulating debate and promoting further research; this is also an opportunity
to foster contacts between participants. Papers presented in agorae should focus
on the field of international law connected with the overarching conference theme
and the description of the agora as described below.
Papers should be unpublished at the moment of presentation and be at an
advanced stage of completion. The working language of the conference is English.
Theme of the Conference
The 21st century is frequently called the “Asian century” with most countries in
the region recording remarkable economic growth. Economic links within the
region and beyond are constantly increasing, examples being, among others, the
conclusion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement and the ongoing
negotiations of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership. Further
development in terms of regional integration has also been achieved especially
with the establishment of the ASEAN Community.
Yet Asia, dynamic and diverse as it is, comprises high-income industrialised
countries and emerging economies but is also home to two thirds of the world's
poor. The region remains fraught with numerous political crises, intractable
territorial and maritime disputes and unresolved ethnic and social conflicts.
Against this background, it is high time that legal scholars and practitioners
discussed the role of international law in creating an environment conducive to
the safe and efficient movement of goods, services and people across borders,
maintaining peace and stability in the region and addressing non-traditional
security challenges. The 2016 Regional Conference of the Asian Society of
International Law will offer a great opportunity to share Asian perspective on
and approach to the legal issues that arise from the recent developments in or rel
ated to the region.
Topics of Papers
Proposals for papers are now being invited on the following topics:
1. International economic law: trade and investment;
2. Intellectual property rights;
3. International commercial arbitration, including investor-state arbitration;
4. Private International Law, especially choice of law and jurisdiction for

10. Peaceful settlement of international disputes: diplomatic and judicial
11. TPP and other (Mega-)Regional Trade Agreements;
12. The establishment of the ASEAN Community in 2015.
All persons interested in international law, be they academic or practitioners,
