Description

In this session, we will look to the future and consider the topics that the ILC ought to consider working on in the next seventy years. In general, we will examine whether the days of codification are really over, and, if so, what this should mean for the work of the ILC. Are there particular topics in newer and specialized areas of international law requiring the attention of a body like the ILC? What role can States and international organizations play in identifying topics for the Commission? How could the ILC improve its relationship with States, especially the Sixth Committee of the General Assembly? Should the ILC strategically develop closer relationships with regional and other bodies? If so, what form should such relationships take?
