ASIL Symposium on “Distributive Justice and International Economic Law”

ASIL’s International Legal Theory Interest Group will be hosting a symposium on “Distributive Justice and International Economic Law” in Washington D.C. on November 7, 2008.

 

“This symposium focuses on the role of distributive justice (e.g. questions about the fair allocation of primary goods under international economic law) and how international economic law may intrude upon the basic structure of domestic societies. The symposium seeks to explore this subject by examining its foundations, applications, and critiques.”

 

“Speakers include, Joel Trachtman (Fletcher), Daniel Butt (Oxford), Jeff Dunoff (Temple/Harvard), Carol Gould (Temple), Robert Hockett (Cornell), Aaron James (UC Irvine), Jan Klabbers (Helsinki), Chin Leng Lim (Hong Kong), Sanjay Reddy (Columbia), Kamal Saggi (Southern Methodist), Barbara Stark (West Virginia) Fernando Tesón (Florida State), Chantal Thomas (Cornell/Am. U. Cairo), Frank Garcia (Boston), John Linarelli (La Verne/Northeastern), Chi Carmody (Western Ontario), etc.”

 

It promises to be an exciting inter-disciplinary event featuring international law, moral philosophy and economics.
