The International Law Association was founded in Brussels in 1873. Today, it has branches around the world and a growing membership of academics and practising professionals with an interest in international law. The Swiss Branch was founded in 1929. It works in close cooperation with the Swiss Society for International Law (SVIR/SSDI) and ensures the participation of its members in the ILA Executive Council as well as at the biennial conferences. We also participate in the World Meeting of the Societies for International Law.
The Swiss Society for International Law (SSDI) and the Swiss Branch of the International Law Association (ILA) honour the memory of Christian Dominicé (Professor Emeritus of the University of Geneva), a long-standing member of both organizations who served as well on the SSDI’s Executive Board, who passed away on 3 April.
