On 8 January 2021, Legal Officer Philine Wehling delivered a lecture via videoconference to the postgraduate students from the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITC-ILO) in Turin.
The lecture addressed the legal implications of the COVID-19 pandemic and governmental containment measures on the performance of international commercial contracts in light of the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts.
The lecture was part of the 2020-2021 edition of the Master of Laws in International Trade Law programme, which is co-organised by the ITC-ILO, the University of Turin and the University Institute of European Studies in collaboration with the Turin School of Development.
