“International Law in Crisis”: Case Western Reserve Law Conference Webcast
I’ve been attending (and will be speaking) at a conference at Case Western Reserve University Law School in Cleveland entitled “International Law in Crisis.” You can catch the webcast here. A brief description below.
2011 is shaping up to be one of the most turbulent years in history. This timely symposium is designed to examine both the application of international law in times of crisis and whether these events are pushing international law itself to the brink of crisis, with panels examining developments in Northern Africa and the Middle East, climate change, international economic law, universal jurisdiction, piracy, and the war on terrorism. The symposium features an opening lecture by Ruth Wedgwood, President of the American Branch of the International Law Association, and a midday lecture by the Hon. Richard Goldstone, former Justice of the South African Constitutional Court and Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda.
