Young Approaches to International Law

Announcing a “Youthquake”, Time Magazine rang the bell of change, declaring that a new generation is on its way to power. International legal scholarship, however, has not yet recognised this dynamic as an emerging field of research.

In this light (or darkness), students of Freie Universität Berlin hosted a conference on the question of youth in international law this January. The event was shaped by questions such as “Is international law biased when it comes to youth?” or “Are young people participating in international law? Should they?”.  As quickly became clear, research on youth in international law barely exists, or more precisely: it is still nascent.

The Symposium’s contributions explore questions on the impact of youth on international law.
