The Conference will include, among its speakers and chairs, the President of the ICJ, Judge Ronny Abraham, ICJ Judge Giogio Gaja, the Legal Counsel of the United Nations, Mr. De Serpa Soares, the Legal Counsel of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, Mr. François Alabrune, and several prominent figures in the field of international law. More information and details for registration can be found here. Contact: Prof. Pierre Bodeau-Livinec (bodeaulivinec {at} gmail(.)com)
