Jointly organized by the CUHK LAW CCTL and the Centre for Commercial Law Studies in Queen Mary University of London, the EU-Asia Aviation Law Forum aims to engage in debates on aviation law issues in the EU and Asia. The 2nd EU-Asia Aviation Law Forum will examine aviation law and the aero-political implications of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. The conflict in Ukraine has generated diverse impacts in the aviation market. Among others, European and Asian airlines that served destinations requiring Russian and Ukrainian overflight now have to take large detours. Sanctions against Russia in the area of aviation and Russia’s lost seat in the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Council will likely have a long-term effect. In this forum, three renowned aviation law experts, namely Mr. Jeffrey Shane, Dr. Antigoni Lykotrafiti and Prof. Jae Woon Lee will discuss the impact of the conflict in Ukraine from an aviation law perspective.
About the Speakers:
Mr. Jeffrey Shane, Former General Counsel, International Air Transport Association (IATA)
Dr. Antigoni Lykotrafiti, Senior Lecturer in Transport, Energy and the Law, Queen Mary University of London
