An international symposium and Call for Papers and a conference both held at Koç University, Istanbul have been announced.   

Papers are welcomed from Ph.D candidates and scholars who have received their Ph.Ds in the last 10 years for discussion at an international symposium entitled  "Contextualising Insurance Contracts: Interactions with Various Fields of Law". It is to be held on Thursday 28 May 2020 at Koç University in Istanbul.
