IIEL is pleased to co-sponsor the 2016 Biennial Meeting of ASIL’s International Economic Law Interest Group. We look forward to welcoming participants to Georgetown Law from September 30-October 1 for a conference on “Making International Economic Law Work: Integrating Disciplines and Broadening Policy Choices.” This theme fully reflects IIEL’s cross-disciplinary ethos. We hope that you will mark your calendars now and plan to join us for a robust discussion of the many cross-cutting areas of international economic law (IEL), of interest to academicians and practitioners alike.
As we work toward the Biennial, we invited paper and panel proposals on all aspects of IEL, including those that focus on cross-cutting issues. Over 100 proposals were received by the June 24th deadline, and are currently undergoing peer review. Decisions/invitations to participate will issue on or about August 1. Please see below for a non-exhaustive list of possible paper or panel themes, with further details in the 2016 Biennial Call For Papers.
Illustrative themes could include:
- Cross-fertilization opportunities between trade, tax, monetary and finance law: How does monetary law impact trade and finance, and vice-versa?
- Soft law in international economic law: Are there lessons to be drawn from financial regulation for trade and investment?
- How does regionalism shape and challenge international economic law?
- Dispute resolution in the face of trade and investment treaty convergence: What are the opportunities and challenges raised by recent innovations? Is a unified system possible or desirable?
- International economic law and systemic risk
- Public-private partnerships in international economic law
