United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL)

The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) presents Modernizing International Trade Law to Support Innovation and Sustainable Development July 4-6, 2017, in Vienna. The first call for papers deadline (abstracts) is Sept. 9, 2016.

Join us to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Commission and to engage with leaders in the field of international trade law, including practitioners, judges, academics, international officials and other experts to explore the opportunities that UNCITRAL should seize in the coming years.

Participants will examine ways in which UNCITRAL can contribute to managing new development issues and fostering innovation through the modernization of international trade law. The Congress will be open to anyone with an interest in international trade and business, the work of UNCITRAL and the potential of trade law reform and innovation to translate the United Nations sustainable development goals into action to advance business and trade at country level.

Attendance at the Congress is free of charge. More information will be available on this site when it becomes available.
