3.  Conference on International Law and Time (12-13 June 2015) – Registration Open. The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva (IHEID), International Law Department holds a conference entitled “International Law and Time” in Geneva, Switzerland, from 12-13 June 2015. Registration for the conference is now open. For more information please visit the conference website or email lawconference {at} graduateinstitute(.)ch. The conference is intended to create an opportunity to reflect and debate the fundamentals of international law in depth as time is an inherent component of many of the most important international law concepts. Time, however, also fundamentally determines international law as a field. The notion of time cuts across themes to provide context and sensitivity to the shifting values of international society. International law has been in constant dynamic change since its inception. Capturing and understanding this change in time is one of the discipline’s fundamental challenges, as is the difficulty of working with the constantly changing materiae of international law in practice. Panels will address the significance, measurement and narratives of time, as well as their impact on international law.
