INTERNATIONAL LAW IN DOMESTIC COURTS

WORKSHOP

Yonsei University Graduate School of International Studies

Room 111, New Millennium Hall

Seoul, South Korea

 

BACKGROUND

On the occasion of the Sixth Biennial Conference of the Asian Society of International Law (which takes place on 25-26 August), the Society’s Interest Group on International Law in Domestic Courts (IG - ILDC) is organizing a half-day workshop on the ways Asian courts invoke, interpret and apply international law. For decades, judiciaries across Asia have turned to international treaties, and customary international law, to resolve disputes between private actors on the one hand, and between individuals and the states on the other. Despite this widespread practice, insufficient attention has been paid to the Asian countries’ reception of international law. We hope to use this opportunity to spur scholarly reflection on state practice from any Asian jurisdiction.
