Second Harvard International Law Journal/Opinio Juris Symposium
A few months back, Opinio Juris was pleased to host an inaugural joint symposium with the Harvard International Law Journal. Next week, we’re very pleased to be able to regularize this partnership with a second symposium (I’m particularly pleased with this development for reasons that should become apparent below). The symposium will run from Tuesday, July 12, to Friday, July 15, and features the following line-up:
On Thursday, Katharina Pistor will respond to Olivier De Schutter‘s article, The Green Rush: The Global Race for Farmland and the Rights of Land Users.
On Friday, Frédéric Mégret will respond to Philip Alston‘s article, Hobbling the Monitors: Should U.N. Human Rights Monitors be Accountable?
Most of the authors (myself included) will offer introductory comments on their work or direct responses to the questions and comments of the contributors. I, for one, am looking forward to the conversations that result.
