“POWER AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF INTERNATIONAL LAW: ASIAN PERSPECTIVES”
(co-organised by Nepalese Society of International Law – AsianSIL Nepal Chapter)
POSTPONED TO DECEMBER 2020
This Regional Conference of the Asian Society of International Law (AsianSIL) will focus on isues 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 (and this has been recognized by the 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 how we should assess the claims about Asia’s important role in the development of international laws. This regional conference will consider the complex issues that arise from the anomalies of Asian practices of international law, among other related themes.
