The 20th Annual Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Society of International Law (ANZSIL) was held 5-7 July in Wellington and hosted by the NZ Centre for Public Law, at Victoria University.
The conference titled “International Law in the Next Two Decades: Form or Substance?” looked at the development of international law over the past 20 years and at emerging issues. It speculated on the future of international law and the likely impact on its practice and teaching.
