TRILA Viet Nam Workshop 2021 (via Zoom)


Invitation to Participate and Call for Abstracts

Note: this workshop is limited to scholars and practitioners from Viet Nam


About the workshop

The NUS Centre for International Law, International Law Faculty (Ho Chi Minh City University of Law), Faculty of Economic Law (University of Economics and Law, Viet Nam National University) are delighted to host an online workshop via Zoom from 7 to 8 April 2021 on ‘Teaching and Researching International Law in Asia (TRILA)’. This workshop is the sixth — following CambodiaSri LankaMyanmarIndonesia, and Malaysia — in the series of country-specific programmes that are part of the ‘TRILA on the Road’. These programmes are intended to advance the agenda set in the 2018 TRILA Singapore Conference, the outcome of which is now contained in the 2020 TRILA Project Report. As a project, TRILA aims to change the historical condition in which Asian societies only played a relatively minor role, i.e., as rule-taker rather than rule-maker, in the making of modern international law. To change this condition, it is imperative for Asian scholars, practitioners, officials and diplomats to be highly skilled and knowledgeable in understanding and shaping a continuously changing international law environment.

TRILA Viet Nam Workshop aims to:

  • Discuss the challenges and issues in international law teaching and researching in Viet Nam and other ASEAN countries
  • Explore and discuss teaching materials, methods, assessments, and formulation of syllabus
  • Discuss writing for publication, research methods, and varieties of scholarship
  • Serve as a platform for selected young Vietnamese scholars to present their current research projects.
