The Centre for International Law (CIL) is a university-level research institute at the National University of Singapore (NUS). It was established in 2009 in response to the growing need for thought leadership and capacity building in international law in the Asia-Pacific region. The present areas of focus are ASEAN law and policy, ocean law and policy, trade and investment law and policy, air law and policy, and international dispute settlement in these areas. CIL engages in research, training, counsel and consultancy on key international law and policy developments. It also organises conferences, workshops and seminars on international legal issues that have an impact on Southeast Asia and the Asia-Pacific region. CIL also collaborates closely with a network of partner and stakeholder organisations in Singapore and overseas to further the development of international law research and training in the region. The Centre also makes available to the public, at no cost, the CIL Documents Database and the CIL Treaty Status Database by way of the CIL website. These are excellent resources for researchers and officials seeking ASEAN, International Law and other instruments.
