The webinar discussed the conceptual difference between national and international law, on the one hand, and transnational law, on the other, debated international law and the sovereignty of states in the international order, and argued that the concept of individual subjectivity in international law always depends on the time period in which the research is conducted, a number of questions are open regarding the criteria for funding NGOs, it was pointed out that there is a growing influence of non-state actors in the field of biodiversity conservation, as well as controversial issues of rights and obligations of armed non-state actors, and that their designation only as perpetrators of violations in international law does not contribute to respect for dialogue in international humanitarian law. The discussion was centred on the role of non-governmental organisations in different countries as well as their comprehensive influence in different areas of public policy making.
