About the e-Conference

The scope of International law has developed over the last few decades and has grown exponentially since the dawn of globalized era. From the regulation of space expeditions to
the question of the division of the ocean floor, and from the protection of human rights to the management of the international financial system, its involvement has spread out from the primary concern with the preservation of peace, to embrace all interests of contemporary international life. International law has developed both horizontally and vertically.

In the dynamic stream of laws, we constantly witness that International law has crossed path with national laws and have thus created a symbiotic relationship to survive in this globalized epoch. Globalization has become synonymous to the spreading of capitalistic regimes all over the world.

While the focus of International Law is primarily on regulating the sovereign states and generally delegates the regulation of MNCs to individual states, the Corporates like Google, Facebook have supplanted sovereign states and they have attained a powerful status in the regime of sovereignty.

The Globalization-corporate nexus has major implications on not just trade and intellectual property rights but on diverse legal regimes like human rights, labour rights, environment and
air and space laws. For the facilitation of trade, commerce, International law has been incorporated into the municipal laws.

Thereby it raises the questions like whether the sovereign states can effectively control corporates through national legislations or whether the International law need to further
develop to empower/guide the states to come up with uniform and harmonized national laws to effectively regulate the activities of MNCs.

The international e-conference offers a platform to analyse the extent of convergence of International law and National legislations in regulating the activities of Multi-National Corporates which might have trans-national impact and repercussions on the subjects of International Law.
