The Kent Law School’s Graduate Conference Committee presents its 5th Annual LLM Student Conference entitled “The Role of Law in Meeting Contemporary Global Challenges” in Canterbury, UK on June 5-6, 2017. Abstracts should be submitted lawgradconference[@]kent.ac.uk by Apr. 15, 2017.
In an era of increasing globalisation, there is a need to scrutinise the role of law in addressing the challenges associated with this development. There is an intensifying need to tackle the growing world population; migration and refugee crises arising from war and natural disasters; climate change and environmental degradation; manipulation of communication technologies against states and citizens, and national and transnational crimes.
The conference will focus on exploring law’s role in meeting global challenges in areas including but not limited to: Economic and Environmental issues, Global Policymaking, Technology, Targeted Killings, International and Transnational Crime, the Internet and Communication Technologies, Mass Migration and Shared Security/Global policing. The conference seeks to critically engage the legal and theoretical framework underpinning these issues and suggest possible alternatives.
