Over the last three decades, interest in the history of international law has dramatically risen among scholars from various constituencies such as international law, commercial law, economics, international relations, legal history and diplomatic history. I-HILT organizes a series of lectures on the history of international (economic) law at the Tilburg Law School.
In the academic year 2022-2023, I-HILT will continue its series of e-lectures. The first version of this season's program can be found below. We hope and expect to add more dates to it over the upcoming months. Each lecture will be 40 minutes accompanied by a question and answer period of 20 minutes. Come to one of the lectures, or simply stream it here. Please feel welcome to attend!
