The 7th CILS International Law Conference 2016

The first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth CILS Conferences have been carried out with a great success in 2010 at Faculty of Law Universitas Indonesia in Depok, in 2011 at Faculty of Law Universitas Gadjahmada in Yogyakarta, in 2012 at Faculty of Law Hasanuddin University in Makassar, in 2013 at Faculty of Law Universitas Syiah Kuala in Aceh, in 2014 at Faculty of Law Universitas Indonesia in Depok, and in 2015 at Faculty of Law Universitas Airlangga in Surabaya, Indonesia. Numerous experts from various countries had attended all Conferences and given their invaluable support to its success. It is the intention to launch this very Conference every year in different places in Indonesia where the local Faculty of Law has an interest in developing International Law.

In the year 2016, the CILS Conference will be placed in Padang, Indonesia, particularly at the Faculty of Law Universitas Andalas the renowned public university in western part of Indonesia where the development of international law is also well treated by their respected international law experts. The Conference is therefore continued to serve as a forum of international law stakeholders in Indonesia and beyond to bring together ideas in promoting and developing international law to respond to the growing needs of having strong guiding principles in a borderless world.

This CILS annual conference is expected to take place every year to mark any international law development. The theme of this year is therefore “Maritime Affairs”. Within this broad conference theme, there are five parallel sessions in which will focus on the following sub-themes: (1) Maritime Security; (2) Maritime Connectivity; (3) Marine Environment; (4) Marine Resources, and (5) General Topic.
