Peace Palace, The Hague, Netherlands
This year HiiL will bring together some of the world’s preeminent scholars, practitioners, representatives of leading businesses and NGOs, and government officials for the Third Law of the Future Conference. Participants will engage in debate on the changing role of private actors in a globalising world, the principles of public-private cooperation in shaping law and (global) governance, and potential methods to improve public-private cooperation through a collective evaluation of performance and effectiveness. The goal is to identify common trends (or the lack thereof) and to formulate recommendations as to what legal environment is necessary for and conducive to such mutually beneficial collaborations.
The conference will focus on four highly relevant fields pertaining to corporate, academic, and public interests alike:
- Private actors and self-regulation;
- Regulation of financial markets and institutions;
- Enforcement of corporate social responsibility standards;
- The realisation of the Millennium Development Goals through public-private partnerships.
The Conference keynote speeches will be delivered by Professor Gunther Teubner (University of Frankfurt) and Mr. Peter Wakkie (Executive Vice President and Chief Corporate Governance Counsel, Royal Ahold N. V.)
