The T.M.C. Asser Institute, the Centre for the Law of EU External Relations (CLEER) and The Hague University of Applied Sciences invite submissions of abstracts for a workshop that will take place on October 17, 2018 at the Asser Institute in The Hague, Netherlands.
The workshop aims to explore the legality of economic activities in occupied territories under international law. The organisers welcome abstracts treating, among other themes, the duty of non-recognition and its application to occupied territories; the international responsibility of States and IOs for concluding trade agreements covering occupied territories; the soft-law framework (e.g. UN Guiding Principles, corporate codes of conduct, certification schemes) affecting private actors’ economic activity in occupied territories; the extent to which international law obliges home States to regulate the conduct of private actors doing business in occupied territories, etc.
Limited travel grants of up to 200 euros as well as one night of accommodation will be offered to successful applicants who do not have institutional support. Please set out in clear terms in your submission e-mail whether such financial support is needed.
