Prof. WANG Guiguo, Director of Centre for Judicial Education and Research, CityU; Chair Professor of Chinese and Comparative Law, School of Law, CityU, preluded the Conference with an opening speech. He mentioned China’s “One Road and One Belt” initiative when introducing the Conference background. Prof. Wang thought the initiative emerged as the time required.

The Conference intended to address a wide range of issues relating to the rule of law in a globalized environment, such as i) the impact of the international legal framework relating to trade and investment on domestic laws and law enforcement; ii) the role of judges and courts in the context of globalization; iii) the rule of law as a shared value of the international community; iv) international law and conventions in the domestic courts; and v) prospects of the rule of law in the time of globalization.

Seventeen legal scholars and practioners from home and abroad were invited for paper presentation on the Conference. They have discussions over several international hot topics, including FTA, ISIS, international investment arbitration, global rule of law and so on.

The Conference turned out to be a great success. It has provided an opportunity for international legal scholars and practioners to exchange ideas and generate new insights into the rule of law in the time of globalization.
