The objective of SAIELN is to encourage and support the development of international economic law (IEL) in the South Asia region in cooperation with global partners. The network is a freestanding body associated with the Society of International Economic Law (SIEL) and other IEL groups.

The Second Biennial Conference will address the Law of the Blue Economy from an International and South Asian perspective. We are therefore seeking proposals for papers, panels and posters for the two-day SAIELN conference.

The concept of Blue Economy is premised on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. According to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), this concept is based on protection and the restoration of the ocean base, which provides livelihood and food to many in the world and sustainability of economic activities.

For the purposes of this conference, South Asia includes Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

The deadline for abstract submission is 27 May 2019.
