Symposium on The Changing Role of Scholarship in International Law

The Leiden Journal of International Law has started to reflect on the changing role and function of scholarship in International Law. This development opens up a wide array of questions and debates that are likely to remain at the forefront of academic thinking and research agendas in the coming decades.

The symposium presented an opportunity to deepen discussion and reflect on the future of legal scholarship from different perspectives, both within and beyond the Leiden Journal.

The event included a keynote address by Prof. Martti Koskenniemi, an international lawyer and a former Finnish diplomat, who currently serves as professor of International Law at the University of Helsinki and the Director of the Erik Castrén Institute of International Law and Human Rights.

The full program is available here.
