World Congress of the IACL - 18 to 22 June 2018

The Xth World Congress of the International Association of Constitutional Law (IACL) will be held from 18 to 22 June 2018 in Seoul, Korea.

The theme of the World Congress is "Violent Conflicts, Peace-Building and Constitutional Law"

The World Congress is hosted and co-organised by the Korean Association of the IACL in collaboration with the Executive Committee of the IACL.

It will be the first time in twenty years the World Congress of the IACL is held in Asia. It is expected that over 600 participants will attend the Congress, from all regions of the world.

The working languages of the Congress are French and English and simultaneous translation will be provided in plenary sessions.

An IACL World Congress is held every 3 to 4 years. The IXth World Congress was held in Oslo, Norway, in June 2014, under the theme ‘Constitutional Challenges: Global and Local’.

The IACL uses two principal formats for the scholarly programme of a World Congress: plenary sessions and workshops. Plenary sessions are open to all participants while workshops are smaller and discussion-based. Plenaries and workshops are chaired by world-renowned constitutionalists.

The website of the Congress is still under construction by the Korean Association of the IACL and will be linked here as soon as it is ready. Contact details for the organisers will also be provided at that time.

A call for papers will be released later this year, including a brief description of the topic of each workshop and a list of chairpersons. Details of each of the plenary sessions and a list of speakers will also be released at that time.

We look forward to welcoming you to Seoul in June 2018.
