ASLI 2019

16th Asian Law Institute Conference

Tue, 11 Jun 2019 12:00:00 AM – Wed, 12 Jun 2019 11:59:59 PM

It gives me great pleasure to announce the Call for Papers for the 16th ASLI Conference. The Conference will be held from 11 to 12 June 2019 at the National University of Singapore Faculty of Law. The venue will be our historic Bukit Timah Campus. Once home to the entire University, it is now devoted to Law and the School of Public Policy. Listed as a national monument, the campus is nestled at the edge of the Botanic Gardens, Singapore’s only World Heritage-listed site.

The theme for the conference is “The Rule of Law and the Role of Law in Asia”.

Every country in Asia embraces the rule of law in theory, but differences sometimes emerge as to what it means in practice. Across the region, law has been a vital part of economic development, yet there is no supranational body comparable to the EU, the AU, or the OAS. Sub-regional bodies like ASEAN, SAARC, and the SCO have a more ambiguous connection to the rule of law in terms of their personality and their powers. At the national level, many jurisdictions manifest pluralism through the mix of indigenous, colonial, and national legal projects in the course of their history. We hope that the conference theme is specific enough to be thought-provoking, while also being general enough to encompass a wide range of offerings comparable to what we have seen in past ASLI forums.
