Event Details

At the 32nd meeting of the United Nations General Assembly held in November 2021, 18 new members were elected to the International Law Commission (ILC), a body of 34 experts responsible for helping develop and codify international law.

The new members elect include: Professor Dapo Akande (University of Oxford and Essex Court Chambers), Professor Phoebe Okowa (Queen Mary University of London), and Dr Martins Paparinskis (University College London).

This event will be an opportunity to hear their views on the future work of the Commission. This discussion will be chaired by Sir Michael Wood KCMG (Twenty Essex), who has been a member of the ILC since 2008.
