1. Inaugural lecture and workshop in Maastricht. The workshop ‘A State-Centric International Legal System?’ will run from 27 May 2016 at the School of Business and Economics, Maastricht University. It brings together leading scholars in international law, human rights and EU law. They will debate the challenges of a state-centric design of international law. The debate will be divided into two panels. One will address state-centrism in international law from the perspective of the rules governing the use of force, while the other one will be conceptual in nature. The debate will be critically discussed and moderated by members of the Maastricht Law Faculty. Confirmed speakers include Prof Erika de Wet (Pretoria), Prof Katja Ziegler (Leicester), Prof Jean d’Aspremont (Manchester), Prof Cedric Ryngaert (Utrecht), Dr Christina Eckes (Amsterdam) and Prof Cees Flinterman (Maastricht). The workshop will be followed by Prof Vidmar’s inaugural lecture: Wrongfulness, Responsibility and Defences in International Law. Participation is free of charge, but please register
