Webinar: Vaccine Equity and International Economic Law ( by Zoom on Monday, May 10, at 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EDT)

Webinar: Vaccine Equity and International Economic Law ( by Zoom on Monday, May 10, at 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EDT)

The equitable distribution of vaccines and other medical supplies is among the most pressing challenges facing the international community today. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted severe inequality of access to medical services, both among and within countries, and unequal access to lifesaving vaccines is only the latest example. Indeed, experts estimate that, absent significant policy changes, lower-income countries may not be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 until 2024. Governments and experts today are urgently debating what policy changes are required, including the role of international trade and intellectual property law in facilitating or hindering a more equitable distribution of Covid-19 vaccines.  These debates include proposals to waive patent protection for vaccines, to pressure drug companies to voluntarily share knowledge and technology with developing countries, and to issue compulsory licenses to enable the manufacture of generics. 

This panel, hosted by the ASIL International Economic Law Interest Group and the World Bank, will address the latest developments in these fast-moving debates, and chart potential paths forward.  Our speakers are:

– Kholofelo Kugler, Counsel, Advisory Centre on WTO Law
– Dalindyebo Shabalala, Assistant Professor of Law, University of Dayton School of Law
– Madhavi Sunder, Professor of Law and Associate Dean for International and Graduate Programs, Georgetown Law
– J. Benton Heath (Moderator), Assistant Professor of Law, Temple University Beasley School of Law

The event will be held by Zoom on Monday, May 10, at 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EDT. Each speaker will attend and speak in their personal capacity, and the views expressed are not meant to reflect those of ASIL, the Bank, or any other organization.

To register, please complete the registration form at https://miami.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_mBSkWfKsSFW7Ez8ldo36xQ. The Zoom link will be sent to all registered participants.

Call for Papers: JIEL-ASIL Junior Faculty Forum for International Economic Law

A call for papers has been issued for the inaugural JIEL-ASIL Junior Faculty Forum for International Economic Law. Here’s the call:

JIEL-ASIL Junior Faculty Forum for International Economic Law (IEL-Forum)

The Journal of International Economic Law and the International Economic Law Interest Group of the American Society of International Law are delighted to announce the first annual IEL-Forum for Junior Scholars. The IEL-Forum aims at bringing together early career scholars (including junior faculty, VAPs, PhD candidates, etc.) working in the field of international economic law. The purpose is to allow scholars to present their work before an audience of peers and experts and receive feedback from senior scholars. In addition, at least one piece will receive an offer of publication to appear in the 25th volume of the Journal of International Economic Law—the leading publication in the field.

Rules and Format

We welcome applications from early career scholars teaching in law faculties or other schools such as in economics, political science, history or international relations. The Forum welcomes submissions covering a wide range of international economic law topics – trade, investment, finance, tax, labor, intellectual property, data, and other topics reflective of the broad nature of the field.

At the IEL-Forum, up to six successful applicants will present their work; for each paper, a senior scholar will provide a response followed by general discussion by the entire Forum. The intention is to create a process of sustained exchange and feedback that can help to improve the piece. Interested applicants should submit a brief description of the unpublished/unsubmitted project (up to 800 words) and a CV by June 11, 2021 to IEcLIG@asil.org. Applicants should be prepared to comply with the following schedule:

  • Selection and Notification of the List of Participants by July 16, 2021.
  • Draft Papers (up to 12,500 words) circulated by September 10, 2021.

  • JIEL Offer(s) of Publication by November 5, 2021.
