Introduction

As the world goes urban, a growing interest has arisen over the global role of cities and local communities in international relations. The international meeting addresses the impact of cities on the development of international law, on the occasion of the publication of the Research Handbook edited by Helmut Aust and Janne Nijman (Elgar, 2021) as well as of a special issue of the Italian Yearbook of International Law. The purpose of the event is to shed some light on how international law is shaped, interpreted and implemented by cities in various fields, ranging from climate change over human rights and migration to security governance.
