LECTURE SERIES AND DOCTORAL SEMINARS: International Order and Justice (Ghent Law Faculty, 0ct 2015-May 2016)

In the course of the academic year 2015-16, the Ghent law faculty will organize a specialist course for doctoral students, whereby eight established international law experts will each give a public lecture on a specific topic, while also participating in a closed session for a smaller group of doctoral researchers.

Confirmed speakers participating in the ‘International Order and Justice Lecture Series’ are: Professor Olivier Corten (October), Judge Antônio Cançado Trinade (November), Prof. Klaus Kress (December), Prof. Martti Koskenniemi (February), Dr. Marko Milanovic (March), Prof. Kevin Jon Heller (March), Sir Michael Wood (April) and Prof. Robert Kolb (May). 
Doctoral students (whether from Ghent or from another university) interested in presenting a paper in one of the closed sessions, can signal their interest by submitting a short abstract with the organizers (; 

Doctoral students can either register for separate lectures, or for the entire series – in which case they can obtain an ECTS certificate from the Ghent University Doctoral Schools Administration.

The specialist course is organized in partnership with the VUB and KUL, and with the financial support of the Belgian Society for International Law and the ILA Belgium
