Conference on International Law 2019
Indian National Bar Association, Student Section is going to organise a Conference on International Law
Date: 25th April, 2019
Venue: SHANGRI-LA'S, New Delhi, Delhi
Many people see international law to be abstract in nature. Topics such as war and peace or relationships between countries are considered by many as not questions of law, but of power and influence. It is often viewed in a narrow sense by focusing solely on the aspects of security, diplomacy, and peace but with the ever-expanding technology particularly data-flow, complex interactions between states and people, and most importantly, climate change and hence it is high time to look at international law in a broader sense.
The effects of international law on the municipal laws of various countries of the world are diverse. In countries which follow 'monist' school, international treaties are so-called self-executing in nature. On the other hand, countries like India follow the 'dualist' school of law thereby not implementing international treaties into national law automatically and without legislation made by the Parliament of India.
The approach of Indian courts towards international law has been constantly evolving. Indian Judiciary, though not empowered to make legislation, is free to interpret India's obligations under international law into the domestic legal sphere of the country in pronouncing its decision in a case concerning issues of international law.
Keeping in view the above, there exists need to deliberate over the evolving spheres of international law and their interactions with each other. This conference is intended to provide a platform for academicians, lawyers, corporate personalities and scholars all over the country and abroad to share their insights. As the need to foster the study of international law and to promote international relations on the basis of law and justice is more significant today than ever, the objective of this conference is:
