The second academic salon of 2018 Summer Program was held at No.4 Conference Room, Science and Art Center, Xiamen University on July 27th. We have a total of 5 new presenters this time, different from the last salon.


The first presenter, Yaohui Ying from Wuhan University, gave a speech on <the International Law in Cyberspace>. The speech has three parts, including Three Incidents, Rule of Law in Cyberspace, and Future Challenges. Huiling Zhang from Wuhan University, based on the definition and function of the Continental Shelf, shared her opinions on <the Limits of the Continental Shelf>. The third presenter, Dr. Sathish Gowda, gave a speech on Judicial Dictum to Implement and Ensure International Human Rights in India. He pointed out that there will be no effect to Part-III, IV and the judicial verdict unless State nationalizes atleast three important subject matters viz, food, health and education to make HUMAN RIGHT to life more significant one.


<Two Possibilities ofIndo-China Collaborative Research in History of International Law> given by Nithin Ramakrishnan from India was focusing on two research themes: the inter disciplinary methodology of history of International Law, and the Indo-China Collaboration. The last presenter named Imtiaz  Ahmed Sajal whoes study was <Contributions of Third World Judges in the Jurisprudence of International Law: A Glance at the International Court of Justice>. To our comfort, though third world judges did not make up the majority decisions, the fact that these judges’ views were presented in additional and/or dissenting opinions has made for a rich docket of varied perspectives on international law. In this way, they have also contributed in the jurisprudence of international law.


Like all previous salons, our presenters prepared a lot for their speeches and delivered their unique views. The academic salon, through the exhibition of thinking and in-depth communication, embodied the spirit of academic freedom and international friendship. Students from different cultures surely enriched the diversity of academic perspectives on international law.
