Title:Internal and External Dangers in International Law

Lecturer: Marcos Jaramillo, Prof. ,Ponteficia Universidad Catolica de Chile

Summary: Economically and geopolitically speaking, the situation in the world nowadays is unstable. Europe is going down and China is going up. In the legal field, the situation is also unstable, with China and the West trying to have the international trade rules made by themselves. However, little attention has been paid to the “battle of norms” that is going on regarding Public International Law. There are internal and external dangers. External dangers are China and Islam. The current rules were made by the West, but China and Islam are trying to change the norms. In my presentation, I will talk about how is this being made by the Islamic countries and how is being made by China. Is the West going to keep the International norms or not? Where is Japan heading? Together with the West or not? Also, there are internal forces in the West that are trying to change the rules. Does Japan know about this?
