The IACL holds a World Congress every 3-4 years. The IXth Congress, entitled ‘Constitutional Challenges: Global and Local’, will take place in Oslo from 16 to 20 June 2014 and is organised by the Department of Public Law at the University of Oslo in collaboration with the Executive Committee of the IACL. The venue for the Congress is the historic Main Building of the University of Oslo, which is in the centre of the city. It is expected that between 300 and 500 participants will attend the Congress, from all regions of the world. Next to the plenary programme, the Congress consists of 17 workshops covering a variety of areas of constitutional law.
The Congress will take place just one month after the 200th anniversary of the Norwegian Constitution which today stands as the second-oldest written Constitution in the world. The working languages of the Congress are French and English and simultaneous translation will be provided in plenary sessions. 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.
