Institute Promoted Research

The IISTL promotes research into key issues of importance in international shipping and trade law, through the activities of its individual members, as well as on a collective basis. Chief among these initiatives is the busy programme of colloquia and symposia on contemporary developments organised by the Institute. Smaller research seminars are also convened, where guest speakers are invited to address the Institute staff and guests. PhD students and visiting fellows are also given an encouraging and supportive platform to present work in progress and to play a full role in the academic discourse within the IISTL. The Institute also embraces interdisciplinary research and welcomes the participation of specialists from other disciplines. The IISTL Research Library also provides an outstanding body of research materials for its members and visiting scholars to consult.
