Does economic analysis have a role to play in scholarship on international law? For quite a long time, the answer seemed to be “no,” but over the last decade, economic analysis of international law has gained traction in law schools. This conference, which celebrates the publication of Economic Foundations of International law by Eric Posner and Alan Sykes, provides an opportunity to debate the relationship between economic analysis and international law. A distinguished group of scholars will present papers on treaties, the law of war, human rights, international organizations, and related topics.

This conference is organized by the Chicago Journal of International Law and Omri Ben-Shahar and sponsored by the journal and by the Coase-Sandor Institute for Law and Economics.

This event is free and open to the public, but seating may be limited.
