ESIL Prague-Nottingham Symposium: Non-UN Sanctions and International Law

In 2017, an ESIL symposium will take place, co-organized by the Institute of International Relations in Prague, Czech Republic, and the Nottingham International Law and Security Centre, University of Nottingham, United Kingdom.

The symposium will consist of two one-day events, one organized on 5 May 2017 in Prague, the other on 10 November 2017 in Nottingham. The overall topic of the symposium is Non-UN Sanctions and International Law. The idea is to consider various aspects of sanctions adopted outside the UN context, by individual States, groups of States, regional organizations or other actors.

On 8-11 September 2016, the 12th Annual Conference of the European Society of International Law (ESIL) took place in Riga, the capital of Latvia. ESIL is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organisation of international law scholars aimed at promoting the study of international law. During the conference, the coordinator of the IIR Centre for International Law Veronika Bílková was elected to the ESIL Board. It is the first time that the Czech Republic will have its representative in the ESIL Board.

Further details of the programme and the registration process will be available shortly.
