Raising Awareness of Internet Jurisdiction in Asia

On November 26–27, 2015, hundreds of leading lawyers and practitioners from Asian countries gathered for the 5th conference of the Asian Society on International Law. The theme of the biennial conference was “International Law and the Changing Economic & Political Landscape in Asia.”

Bertrand de La Chapelle, the Director of the Internet & Jurisdiction Project, was invited to address the audience in a Keynote Speech to stimulate discussions on “Internet jurisdiction” in Asia. The Keynote Speech was part of the thematic cluster on Internet Governance and followed by a panel discussion on  “Internet Governance – Multistakeholder Bottom up Approach”.

The Asian Society of International Law Conference was an excellent opportunity to reach out to and engage more stakeholders in Asia in the Internet & Jurisdiction process.
