July 12-14th 2012,

The SIEL 2012 Global Conference

The Third SIEL Biennial Global Conference was hosted by the National University of Singapore’s Centre for International Law (CIL) and Faculty of Law, Singapore, from 12 to 14 July 2012.

This conference provided an opportunity for exploring many different facets of international economic law.  Over the course of the last two decades, the communities of scholars, practitioners and others active in the area of international economic law have grown and diversified in ways that few could have predicted. The field of international economic law now includes a diverse array of participants and covers many new substantive issues. Inevitably, the term international economic law defies easy definition: it is at once both a fully integrated part of public international law and an identifiable field in its own right.

The conference program is available here.

As with the SIEL’s previous conferences, there were presentations of over 100 papers by IEL scholars, new and established, from around the world, covering the many different facets of the field.
