The AALCO Secretariat hereby presents the eighth volume of the AALCO Journal of International Law (2019). This volume includes scholarly articles, editorial notes and editorial comments for some speeches delivered by practitioners of international law delivered at diverse events, including those related to AALCO. The speeches provide key insights into contemporary international law issues and the work of international institutions. It is hoped that this volume will serve as a platform for discussion between scholars and practitioners of international law from the Asian-African regions on topics of common concern. It is, therefore, aimed at making an important contribution to the dissemination and teaching of international law in the Asian-African region, useful to students, lawyers, and teachers apart from government officials and practitioners or any person interested in matters of international law.
