CONFERENCE: "The Vienna Congress and the Transformation of International Law" (Bonn, September 3-4 2015)

WHAT The Vienna Congress and the Transformation of International Law, Conference
WHEN September 3-4 2015
WHERE Poppelsdorfer Schloss, Meckenheimer Allee 171, 53115 Bonn

The Congress of Vienna was a landmark in the history of diplomacy and
international law. It symbolizes the specific and ambivalent features of
extrajudicial conflict resolution. The international and interdisciplinary
conference “The Vienna Congress and the Transformation of International
Law” aims at understanding the preconditions and consequences of the
change of international law from pre-modernity to the 19th century. An
investigation on the scientific literature on the Vienna Congress and its peace
order might help to understand what the contemporaries regarded as vital
and striking, how they understood their international order and how they
wanted to develop it. Early historiography may be a device to determine the
particularities of the international order in the beginning of the 19th century
and when and how this order was replaced by another regime. The
conference will examine the techniques how the treaties were set up and
which new institutions were founded in order to monitor the development of
international law issues. Investigations on economic issues will also be taken
into account. The conference aims at interdisciplinary and international
analysis of conflicts, conflict activities and conflict resolutions in one of the
most famous political institutions ever
