JUNIOR SCHOLAR WORKSHOP

July 29, 2022 (Online Only)

This Regional Conference of the Asian Society of International Law will focus on issues relating to the development of international law from Asian perspectives. Asia is an extremely diverse continent, and the Conference will explore the varying roles played by small and big powers, developed economies, emerging economies, and less developed states in the formation of international law. While Asia is playing an increasingly important role in the development of international law as has been recognized by international community and scholars around the world, Asian countries are often implicated in gross violations of human rights, corruption, unilateralism, and other instances of disrespect for basic norms of international law. In such an anomalous context, where power rather than law appears to prevail, a question arises as to whether the claim of Asias important role in the development of international law is sustainable. This regional conference will consider the complex issues that arise from the anomalies of Asian practices of international law, among other related themes. The conference will cover the following topics within the said theme:

  • Law of the Sea: land-locked countries' rights to access to the sea
