5. Glasginburgh 2021 Conference: International Law and Distribution: Sustainable Development, Security, and the Governance of Resources. This online conference will take place on 13 and 14 May 2021. Our aim in this conference is to explore the relationship between international law and questions of “distribution” – broadly conceived. This two-day event will promote a dialogue about the myriad ways in which current ‘distributions’ inform or even determine the development of international law, and how, in turn, the practices of international legal institutions may impact upon distributions of income, resources, and power in the world. More details and the programme can be found here and you can register online here.
