Please join us for the latest instalment of the Essex Public International Law Lecture Series.


The Essex Public International Law Lecture Series welcomes you to to the latest instalment presented by Professor Martti Koskenniemi, University of Helsinki and chaired by Dr Emily Jones from the School of Law at the University of Essex.

About the Lecture 

The talk will examine the attacks on global rule by various anti-globalist, neo-nationalist and sometimes far right movements in the developed west. International lawyers are obviously concerned. How should they understand these attacks and respond to them? Many have suggested that the attacks emerge from frustration by those “left behind”. Why is it then that suggestions for reform of international  or European institutions do not interest or engage the critics? Is the reaction above all to economic deprivation or liberal cultural hegemony?  The talk will suggest that at issue is both a problem with the type of knowledge represented by global institutions as well as the monopolisation of the space left for politics in part by regimes of technical expertise and in part by a morality of rights that expects engaging with institutions that are felt as part of the problem. How is global law – or the idea of a “global law” – involved in these debates? Is it possible to imagine a global law that would not appear as a technocratic instrument for a policy of no alternatives? 

About the Speaker

Martti Koskenniemi is Professor of International Law at the University of Helsinki and Director of the Erik Castrén Institute of International Law and Human Rights. He was a member of the Finnish diplomatic service in 1978-1994 and of the International Law Commission (UN) in 2002-2006. He has been a Visiting Global Professor of Law at New York University since 1997 and has held other visiting professorships at many leading universities. He is member of the Institut de droit international and  Fellow of the British Academy.

His history of international legal thought, To the Uttermost Parts of the Earth: Legal Imagination and International Power 1300-1870, will be published in 2021. 

About the Essex Public International Law Lecture Series

The Essex Public International Law lecture series is founded, hosted and co-chaired by Dr Meagan Wong and Dr Emily Jones based in the School of Law. This is a weekly lecture series featuring judges of international courts and tribunals, leading academics, and practitioners of international law from governmental service, international organizations, and private practice from across the globe. The series prides itself on building on two important intellectual traditions of international law: formalism and international legal practice, and international legal theory including postcolonial and feminist perspectives. 

We welcome all students, academics, practitioners and legal advisors to join us.

“Good Practices in Sovereign Debt Borrowing” Monday 22 February 2021, 4PM GMT, Online Event

“Good Practices in Sovereign Debt Borrowing” Monday 22 February 2021, 4PM GMT, Online Event

Good Practices in Sovereign Debt Borrowing 

About this Event

Date: Monday 22 February 2021
Time: 4PM GMT
Location: Online Event 

The pandemic and the resulting collapse in economic activity have significantly increased the risk of debt distress in many countries, especially the poorest ones. A number of initiatives, notably the G20 debt relief for the world’s poorest countries, have been unveiled to avert instances where servicing existing debt would compound and constrain those countries’ response to the crisis.   As the debt position of many countries and its long-term sustainability have been extensively scrutinised – and debt premia have increased as a result – the importance of assessing the real need to incur new debts and to improve transparency in sovereign borrowing has been also recognised. Several recent debt scandals confirm that debts sometimes are wrongly incurred, or the purpose of their use is not the appropriate one. The G20 have stressed the importance of transparency (G20 Operational Guidelines for Sustainable Financing) while the Institute of International Finance has recently published a set of voluntary principles to improve transparency in sovereign debt markets (IIF Principles for Debt Transparency).   It is clearly important to deal with debt ex-post and ensure that countries are able to manage their debt and mitigate the risk of facing distress situations. This issue that has been evident through several crisis and restructuring situations, the most recent ones being Argentina and Ecuador. It is, however, equally important to deal with debt ex-ante; this means assessing whether and at which conditions countries should incur in debt obligations. Focusing on debt resolution will only deal when the problems as they occur but it will not attempt to tackle the source of the problem: it cures rather than prevents.   This webinar is co-hosted by the Institute for Global Law Economics and Finance (IGLEF) and the Global Policy Institute (GPI), both of Queen Mary University of London. Join us on 22nd February at 4PM (GMT) for a panel discussion.

INVITATION: Lady Françoise Tulkens | “Women’s Voices in the International Judiciary: A Question of Justice” | 01 March 2021 18:30 – 20:00 (Webinar)

Inaugural Lecture of the Public Lecture Series “Women’s Voices in the International Judiciary”: “Women’s Voices in the International Judiciary: A Question of Justice” Monday 01 March 2021 l 18:30 – 20:00 Online event via Cisco WebEx
The SNF-funded project “Diversity on the International Bench: Building Legitimacy for International Courts and Tribunals”, led by Professors María Neus Torbisco-Casals and Andrew Clapham, is launching a monthly public lecture series on “Women’s Voices in the International Judiciary”.
The series aims to reflect on the lack of diversity in the international judiciary —especially gender diversity—, which raises concerns not just in terms of descriptive representation and symbolic self-identification, but also regarding unconscious bias and systemic privileging of specific ideologies or positions in the process of adjudication. The lectures will run from March 2021 until Spring 2022, with the inaugural lecture being delivered by Lady Françoise Tulkens on 1 March at 18h30, via webinar. Lady Françoise Tulkens is a former Judge and Vice-President of the European Court of Human Rights.

Webinar: The Implementation of the TRIPS Agreement by Least Developed Countries, 25 February

Webinar: The Implementation of the TRIPS Agreement by Least Developed Countries, 25 February


The Implementation of the TRIPS Agreement by LDCs:
Preserving Policy Space for Innovation and Access to Medicines 25 February 2021  |  16:00 – 17:00 CET

The World Trade Organization’s agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) has established common minimum standards of patent protection across the globe. Countries had different transition periods to adapt to international rules according to their level of development. Least Developed Countries (LDCs) had an extended period to start applying TRIPS. With the general transition period coming to an end and some countries ceasing to be in the LDC category, how can national TRIPS implementation be done in a manner protective of innovation and access to medicines? Using the case study of Bangladesh, Dr. Monirul Azam will present a plan of action developed to guide countries in their national implementation of the TRIPS Agreement. He will offer specific policy recommendations to comply with international stipulations while still maintaining policies for the development of local industry and integrating long-term innovation and access objectives. Sangeeta Shashikant will then discuss the pharmaceutical transition period and its implications for innovation and access to medicines both within LDCs and globally.

Speakers

Monirul Azam Associate Professor in Law, Södertörn University Sangeeta Shashikant Coordinator, Development and IP Programme, Third World Network
