About the Initiative:
The Jindal Society of International Law is launching its new writing platform, International Agora, which aims to further the vision of the society by promoting meaningful discourse on the various subject matters within the field of international law. The Society wishes to create a platform where everyone who is interested in International law can participate, discuss and further promote this field of study. There is immense scope and potential in this field and we at JSIL believe, that the existing discourse on it has just scratched the surface. We hence, wish to provide an outlet to further engage and foster conversations that are novel, interesting, and stimulating.
International Agora is an extension of the initiatives of the Jindal Society of International Law (JSIL), a student-led initiative at O.P. Jindal Global University, under the aegis of the Centre for the Study of United Nations, and guidance of Faculty Coordinator Professor (Dr.) Vesselin Popovski. Founded in 2020, this Society is an initiative to provide a platform to young international law enthusiasts. The Society is supported and guided by doyens in the field of International Law, such as Dr. Anne Peters, Mr. John Burgess, and more. Since November 2020, the society has aimed to foster meaningful conversations in the realm of international law and play the role of a facilitator for passionate and driven students.
