Welcome to ASIL Cables 2017, and to the 111th Annual Meeting of the American Society of International Law!
Once again, ASIL Cables will provide online daily reporting for the annual meeting, in order to make the many outstanding programs more accessible to attendees making difficult choices from the full program of sessions, as well as practitioners, scholars, and students of international law around the world who are not able to attend.
We will be working with the ASIL team to provide summaries of panels, updates on ASIL interest groups, and video recordings of the most popular programs. We will also highlight additional items of interest to attendees, including commentary on the recipients of this year's book awards.
The 2017 Annual Meeting, What International Law Values, is being presented again at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill (400 New Jersey Ave., NW). Conference programming is grouped by tracks, intended to help attendees navigate the sessions:
Please note that one new program has been added in light of recent developments. Late-Breaking Session: Missile Strikes Against Syria, will be presented on Thursday, April 13, at 1-2:30 p.m. in Columbia B. This panel will explore whether the attack, undertaken without Security Council or Congressional authorization, was a violation of the U.N. Charter; whether the strikes can be justified as humanitarian intervention or as an exercise of the responsibility to protect; and whether the strikes satisfy domestic law requirements for uses of force under the Constitution and the War Powers Resolution. It will also consider the implications of the resolution of these questions for future decision-making, both by the United States and by other governments, on the use of force. The panel will be moderated by Catherine Powell (Fordham University School of Law), and feature Jennifer Daskal (American University Washington College of Law), Harold Koh (Yale Law School), Steven Pomper, and Saikrishna Prakash (University of Virginia School of Law).
Should you have any questions or recommendations, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at email@example.com. We hope you have a productive, thought-provoking, and enjoyable 111th Annual Meeting!
