From fragmentation to convergence

PILAGG invites you to the workshop

From Fragmentation to Convergence – 31 Jan / 1 Feb 2013

After two decades of fragmentation discourse, international courts and other bodies cross reference each other, and emphasise international law as a single, unified system of law one cannot break up into separate specialist fields. This applies to treaty interpretation, as the ICJ underlined recently in Diallo (Compensation). The same basic approach to the formation and identification of customary international law applies regardless of the field of law under consideration.

This bilingual seminar asks, What are the consequences for the principles of treaty interpretation and the formation of customary international law?
