Ius Gentium offers its members a chance to be informed and discuss current problems of international law. This discussion, of course, takes place through the publication activities of Ius Gentium that are an important part our activities. Moreover, it remains important that our small, but highly appreciated community of people, who work in the field and share their concern for the development of international law, continue to discuss openly and share their thoughts. Ius Gentium wishes to give its own contribution by providing an open discussion forum.
