From that perspective, the establishment of the VSIL has met the demands and aspirations of numerous international law researchers and practitioners in Viet Nam to share and exchange knowledge and experience in order to stimulate the development of international law and contribute to the national protection, development and international integration.

He urged the VSIL to further engage in formulation of the country’s development guidelines and policies in accordance with its international commitments and global development trend of international law.
The VSIL was asked to assist agencies, organizations, businesses and people in protecting their legitimate rights and interests, particularly at international adjudicative bodies.
Founded in 2016, the VSIL is a social-professional society of Vietnamese citizens and organizations who have been or are practicing international law.
It operates nationwide based on principles of voluntariness, democracy, autonomy, self-finance, and not for profit./.
