On the 7th  of December 1944, fifty-two Government representatives met in Chicago to agree upon the Convention on International Civil Aviation to ensure all nations would benefit from the safe, affordable and peaceful development of international air services. The job of overseeing this extraordinarily complex  task was given  to the United Nations’ International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). On the 75th  anniversary of the signing of the  Chicago Convention, Luiss will host a celebratory conference envisioned and coordinated in collaboration with the International Institute of Air and Space Law of Leiden University, the Italian civil aviation authority (ENAC - Ente Nazionale per l’Aviazione Civile), the Italian air navigation service provider (ENAV - Società nazionale per il controllo del traffico aereo) and Studio Pierallini. A table of distinguished international guests will commemorate the Convention and its relevance to global peace and prosperity since its adoption 75 years ago.
