3. Athens PIL Discussion Group Online Meeting (via Zoom). This discussion group will take place on 22 June 2022 at 19.00-20.30 (Athens time zone, EET), and will be a discussion with Professor Catherine Redgwell on “What role for general principles in the international legal order?” In this talk Professor Catherine Redgwell will explore ‘the general principles of law recognized by civilized nations’. Once seemingly relegated, general principles have recently become the subject of renewed interest and hot debate amongst international legal scholars, State officials, practitioners, and adjudicators. Renewed enthusiasm — and concern — have both been expressed over their potential place in international legal affairs. Professor Redgwell will explore the persistent challenges facing the identification and application of general principles and will consider whether they ought to play a role in the international legal order — and, if so, what that role should be. How we answer these questions has potentially far-reaching consequences for the maturation of international law and its capacities to respond to the world’s most pressing challenges.  Register and book your ticket here. Or, you can livestream the event on the Athens PIL Youtube page or via Facebook.
