This week, Pluricourts, University of Oslo, hosted a two day conference entitled ‘Strengthening the Validity of International Criminal Tribunals.’ The purpose of the conference was to explore ways in which the field of international criminal law (ICL) can improve, and lessons that can be learnt, as ICL enters a more mature phase in its development.
The 25th and 26th of August marked an important event in PluriCourts’ history, the conference on ‘Adjudicating International Trade and Investment Disputes: Between Isolation and Interaction’. As the title suggests, the main topic of the conference was the interplay between the international trade and investment regimes, mainly the question of convergence and divergence and whether this cross‑fertilization is beneficial or should be treated with caution.
