STATUS AND CURRENT CHALLENGES

International Commercial Law
from a Nordic and Baltic Perspective

The Secretariat of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) and Aarhus University invite all those with an interest in international commercial law to the conference: International Commercial Law from a Nordic and Baltic Perspective: Status and Current Challenges.

The background of the conference is that both the Nordic and the Baltic countries have recently experienced significant changes in their international commercial law frameworks, such as the withdrawal of reservations to the UN Convention on Contract for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). These changes in legislation inevitably create new legal questions and cause familiar legal challenges to resurface.

Purpose
The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for reconsideration of the current status and challenges of international commercial law. At the conference, leading legal experts will present what they believe to be the most challenging and important issues in the interpretation, application, unification, and research of international commercial law.
