INTERFACES between International and National Legal Orders: An International Rule of Law Perspective

Conference

The Seminar explores the evolving interfaces between international and national legal orders from the perspective of the international rule of law.

Interfaces between international and national legal orders

The interfaces between international and national legal orders are the points where the actors, norms and procedures which form and maintain the two legal orders interact with one another. International scholarship has produced extensive studies to capture the inter-order interfaces primarily from the perspective of national rule of law. Much less recognised is the international perspective, namely, the impact of national law on the rule of law within the international legal order.

Aims of the seminar

The seminar will explore how the national rule of law and the national reception of international law influence and develop the international rule of law, particularly from the following three angles:

  • The concept of the international rule of law
  • The development of the international rule of law through national practices
  • Universality, certainty and diversity in the international rule of law

The seminar is closed, but if you are interested in participating, please send an email to acil-fdr@uva.nl.
