|In case you are looking for something to read while many parts of the world are under some form of lockdown, you may be pleased to learn that the conference volume of the 2nd German-Speaking Conference for Young Scholars in PIL, which took place at University of Würzburg in 2019, has recently been published. It includes nine contributions by young researchers, including two English papers, on the conference theme of PIL between Tradition and Innovation as well as a keynote address by Professor Jürgen Basedow. Further information can be found on the publisher’s website.
What is more, the date and theme for the next iteration of the conference have just been announced. The conference will take place on 18 and 19 March 2021 (when Corona lockdowns will hopefully be no more than a distant memory) at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative and International Private Law in Hamburg and explore the theme of PIL for a better world: Vision – Reality – Aberration?. Further information can be found in the German and English Save-the-Date announcements as well as on the conference website.
