In the fall of each year three papers (preadviezen) on a current topic of international law are published in the Mededelingen van de Koninklijke Nederlandse Vereniging voor Internationaal Recht.
Until 2007 the “Mededelingen” were published twice a year: firstly, the papers themselves and then, separately, the proceedings of the Annual Meeting of the Society, including the discussion of the papers and internal matters concerning the Society, such as the annual reports of the Secretary and the Treasurer.
As from 2008 only the papers appear in printed form. They are published by T.M.C. Asser Press in The Hague (www.asserpress.nl). The proceedings of the Annual Meeting are published on this website.
Occasionally, the Society will arrange for special publications, such as:
- Netherlands International Law Review One Hundred Years, November 2010;
- Arthur Eyffinger, T.M.C Asser (1838-1913) Founder of The Hague Tradition, 2011, to commemorate the Nobel Prize being awarded to Asser in 1911.
Every two years, the ILA publishes its Reports containing the reports of the biennial ILA conferences. In addition to the reports and the resolutions of the Committees and the Study Groups each Report contains a survey of the ILA’s activities, the text of the Constitution, and the names of the officers of the ILA, the members of the Committees and Study Groups and the members of the boards of the national Branches. A list of the names and addresses of all members of the national Branches may be found on the ILA website. ILA members also receive the “ILA Newsletter” via e-mail several times a year.
There are special ILA publications as well, for example the “Liber Amicorum for Lord Wilberforce” (former Chairman of the ILA).
Each member of the Society receives a copy of the “Mededelingen” via regular mail. Those who are also members of the ILA additionally receive the biennial ILA Reports, albeit that the Reports are sent only to those who were a member of the ILA in the year in which the conference took place and in the following year as well. ILA junior members do not receive the ILA Reports.
Finally, the proceedings of the discussion at the Society’s annual Spring Meeting (Voorjaarsbijeenkomst) are published on this website and members are informed on a regular basis of the activities of the Society and the ILA, both through this website and the ILA website, as well as directly via e-mail.
