British Institute of International and Comparative Law, in collaboration with the International Law Association (British Branch) and the Scottish Society of International law, is arranging a conference on international legal issues arising from the Antarctic Treaty regime. The conference is to coincide with the forthcoming Antarctic Treaty Consultative Party Meeting to be hosted by the United Kingdom from12-23 June, 2006 in Edinburgh. The proposal is that a one day conference will be held on Saturday 10th June to which both Antarctic legal scholars and delegates to the Consultative Party Meeting will be invited to give papers and participate in discussions.
The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for analysis of Antarctic legal issues which have a contemporary value both generally and for the purposes of the subsequent Consultative Party Meeting itself. It is hoped to encourage geographical representation among participants. While participants will be asked to fund their own travel and accommodation, it is hoped that some funds will be available to assist those from the least developed member States.
