In 1981 Urios was founded, and 35 years later we are celebrating the 7th lustrum of theassociation! The last three decades students interested in international law have workedto raise Urios to greater heights; the society has become bigger and more diverse over
the years. We now have over 250 members and nine committees!The Lustrum week starts today and we are all very excited for this week full of
celebration, fun and excitement. We will provide you with an overview of all theactivities that are taking place in the lustrum week. From a beer pong evening to amoot court, from the dies celebration to a career event: the lustrum week has it all!In this issue we are looking back on what happened the past five years within Urios;
there has been a great variety of activities, trips and of course social events, so wethought it was about time to pick up some memories of the highlights!
In 35 years a lot can change; we never got to the shiny science fiction future somepeople expected, but three decades ago you wouldnt be able to read this issue ofCurious on the Internet and you would have killed your time by reading a bookinstead of watching Netflix on your laptop. Not only in the field of science and
technology there have been tremendous changes, also international law has developedat an immense rate. For example: think of the amplification of human rights, the
foundation of various tribunals and the growing emphasis on the collaboration of theinternational community. If you browse further through this issue you will find an
overview of the legal developments of the past 35 years.You will find out that the world was a completely different place in the eighties; we
collected ten news headlines from Urios founding year 1981 that you might findinteresting! And last but not least; if you have always been curious about who foundedthe association and what the original intentions were behind the foundation, you now
have the chance to read an interview with the man we owe Urios to!
Hope you will enjoy our third edition of Curious!
