South Asia International Economic Law Network (SAIELN) is a collaborative network of academics, practitioners and officials interested in the field of International Economic Law. SAIELN is committed to providing a platform for its members to articulate their views, brainstorm their ideas, and importantly, to nurture and develop the field of international economic law especially in the South Asia region. SAIELN’s focus is to create an environment conducive to the exchange of ideas and the promotion of scholarship in this field. At the same time, SAILEN is global in its outlook and reach, and inclusive in its membership and activities. Scholars from any part of the world are welcome to join us and contribute to our activities. SAILEN also seeks to build on and expand the activities of Society of International Law (SIEL) in promoting and enriching International Economic Law.
SAIELN is an international, non-partisan and non-profit organisation which seeks to facilitate research, collaboration and networking between IEL scholars, academics and professionals working in South Asia.
I am pleased to welcome the launch of the South Asia International Economic Law network. South Asia plays a very important role in the international economic legal order, including through the World Trade Organization. I am sure that this new network will help in the development of the field, providing an outlet for scholarship and networking that may not otherwise have been available for academics, practitioners and officials in the region. I look forward to the research that this network will generate, reflecting the rich and varied perspectives of the region. Have a nice conference, and thank you for all your work!DG Azevedo’s Message
