Anton Didenko (DPhil candidate) has successfully represented the University of Oxford at the postgraduate and early career law conference “International and Comparative Law in the 21st Century: Lessons Learned?”, winning the Best Paper Award.  The conference was held at Griffith College (Dublin) on 10 June 2016 and attracted submissions from academics and researchers in Europe, particularly from the UK and Ireland, on a wide range of topics, from human rights to commercial law.

Anton’s paper, which was entitled “The future of commercial treaty-making: certain lessons from the Cape Town Convention and its protocols”, assessed how the 2001 Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment could affect the development of commercial law treaties generally.  In particular, it explored how the convention resolved various organisational challenges and issues of implementation.
