Members include scholars in all fields of law and beyond to the humanities and social sciences, and at all levels of seniority, from students to emeritus faculty. Each year, the ICON-S conference attracts hundreds of delegates from around the globe, in all fields of public law and related subjects.

 

The theme of the 9th ICON-S Annual Meeting was “Islands and Ocean: Public Law in a Plural World”. The plenary panels were focussed on issues of special relevance to the Pacific region:

 

  • Pluralism and Change in Unwritten Constitutions
  • Pluralism in Indigenous Rights and Self-Governance
  • Plural Responses to the Climate Crisis

 

The Meeting was opened with a welcome by the New Zealand Minister for Justice, and attended by more than 600 domestic, regional and international participants. KAS Australia took the opportunity to support this important event in the field of public law, and to facilitate the debate of current geopolitical, economic and rule of law challenges.
