“YOUNG PERSPECTIVE TO THE CONCEPT OF
COMMON HERITAGE OF MANKIND IN INTERNATIONAL LAW”
Call for Papers
We take great pleasure in inviting you to participate in the 2nd International Law Congress of Youth which will take place on April 10-11th in Istanbul, Turkey. The topic has been selected as “Young Perspective to the Concept of Common Heritage of Mankind in International Law”.
The concept of ‘Common Heritage of Mankind` is one of the important issues of international law in today’s world. As a part of Natural Law, there is no need to conclude treaties on the concept of “Common Heritage of Mankind”. The scope of “Common Heritage of Mankind” as a legal subject needs clarification. Starting from the late 1960’s, the need to an applicable model to the meaning of the common heritage has been increased. As a result, “Common Heritage of Mankind” was indicated as an issue of international law which led through the concept to be accepted necessity for all humanity. With the rapid growth of world population and decreasing resources, the importance of the “Common Heritage of Mankind” has been increased even more in the 21st century. No doubt, the appearance of this issue will be more affective in the upcoming years. Therefore; it is necessary to discuss the scope and the contentious points of the new concept of “Common Heritage of Mankind”.
