Conference Information

The King’s Transnational Law Summit 2018 takes place at a crucial moment of deepening domestic, regional and global political change. Inspired by the political philosopher Hannah Arendt’s book 'The Human Condition', which turns 60 next year, the conference will evolve around the theme of The New Human Condition: Creating Justice for Our Future.

This inaugural Summit will place justice at the centre of a wider inter-disciplinary conversation about democratic politics, inequality, health and the environment in a volatile world. It is our hope to develop KTLS18 into a sustainable platform for an ongoing collaboration on some of the most important challenges we face today.
