The International Rule of Law - Rise or Decline?
invites to its inaugural public Thomas Franck International Law Debate
14 April 2016, 6.15 p.m. - Senatssaal, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
The International Rule of Law:
Rise or Decline in a Changing Global Order?
Georges Abi-Saab, Geneva (frm. Judge ICTY, ICTR and frm. member AB WTO)
discusses crisis symptoms of the current global order and their implications for international law. Multiple military interventions in the Middle East, conflicts over the sea in East Asia and over territory in Eastern Europe, movements of people on a massive scale, a stagnation of treaty making, and disintegrative tendencies in certain international and European institutions are among the many challenges which our international legal and political system currently faces. Despite such signs of crisis we are also seeing successes, such as the Paris Accord on Climate Change and the Iran Nuclear Accord.
Andrew Hurrell, Oxford (Professor of International Relations, Balliol College)
Georg Nolte, Berlin (Professor of International Law, Humboldt-Universität)
Chair: Heike Krieger, Berlin (Professor of International Law, Freie Universität)
We want to take a step back and assess, among the panelists and with the audience, whether we can, under the current significantly changing conditions, still observe an increasing juridification of international relations based on a universal understanding of values. Or are we, to the contrary, rather facing tendencies towards an informalization of international law, or towards its reformalization, or even an erosion of international legal norms?
Venue: Senatssaal, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Main Building, Unter den Linden 6, 10117 Berlin.
Convenors: Heike Krieger (Freie Universität), Georg Nolte (Humboldt-Universität) and Andreas Zimmermann (University of Potsdam) for the Berlin Potsdam Research Group - The International Rule of Law - Rise or Decline? (DFG Kolleg-Forschergruppe)
