It is hard to name an area of life that the Coronavirus pandemic has not affected – from travelling to doing groceries and from grieving to global politics. Some of the effects are more transient, others are here to stay: the pandemic will have had transformative effects in a number of domains – but which? And in particular, what about law? The research cooperation Transformative effects of Globalisation in Law has invited fellow scholars for an online zoom conference on the 16th and 17th of September to discuss these issues.

At this conference the possible transformative effects of the pandemic will be investigated through three main lenses: boundaries and international cooperation, transformative effects on markets and transformation of institutions. During the stream on Institutions in the section 'Compliance, liability and sanctioning' (live September 17th 9:00-10:30) Rethinking SLIC* will be represented by Principal Investigator Göran Sluiter and PhD researcher Marc Tiernan. In this panel they will discuss criminal accountability for spreading misinformation on the Covid-19 pandemic as well as the hypothetical situation in which the spread of Covid-19 could be classified as a crime against humanity.

On behalf of Transformative effects of Globalisation in Law, we would like to invite you to attend this highly topical conference.
