The Aim of the Conference
In our time the world is more than ever faced with so many challenges, some of which represent serious threat to the very existence of mankind. International and internal armed conflicts, development and massive storage of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction, international terrorism, transnational organized crime, environmental degradation, massive violation of human rights and freedoms all around the globe, explosion of refugees etc.
On the other hand, there are new developments in international economic, technical and other cooperation, new social and other relations within states, issues connected to the problem of state sovereignty in globalized world, etc.
All this deserves answers from a legal viewpoint. For instance, invention and rapid use of drones have opened many issues. On the other side, one can expect unsustainable development of space law, since we shall very soon see unprecedented efforts in exploration and use of the space and celestial bodies. For years already there has been open issue of the reform of the United Nations and some other international organization. Some new crimes have appeared in national and international legislation. And so on.
The Conference is an opportunity for scientist from various countries and various fields of law to listen each other, exchange their views and proposals, indicate most important problems of our time law, unite in proposing appropriate solutions, etc.
The publishing of papers will not only make possible their stands and arguments become available to the widest circle of scientific, expert, political and other public, but also represent a step into development of cooperation in various fields of law and legal science.
