1. New additions to the UN Audiovisual Library of International Law. The Codification Division of the UN Office of Legal Affairs has added new lectures to the UN Audiovisual Library of International Law website, which provides high quality international law training and research materials to users around the world free of charge. The latest lectures were given by Professor Franck Latty on “Le droit international du sport” and “La responsabilité internationale de l’Etat dans le contentieux arbitral d’investissement”.

2. Call for Papers: “Contingency in the Course of International Law: How International Law Could Have Been”, Amsterdam, 14-16 June 2018. The conference will ask a question that is deceptive in its simplicity: How might international law have been otherwise? We want to question the present state of international law by challenging its pretence to necessity and by better understanding the forces that have shaped it. Put simply with Robert Musil: “If there is a sense of reality, there must also be a sense of possibility.” Fleur Johns (UNSW) will give a public keynote and Samuel Moyn (Yale) will give a closing address. Please see here for more information. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 1 December 2017.
3. Luxembourg Conference on Dispute Resolution in the Law of International Watercourses and the Law of the Sea. The Conference “A Bridge Over Troubled Waters: Dispute Resolution in the Law of International Watercourses and the Law of the Sea” of the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel will take place on 25-26 September 2017 in Luxembourg. The deadline for registration is 4 September 2017. The program and registration details can be accessed here.
