Description:
Opening Panel: The Challenges Facing International Law
The panel will feature a moderated discussion among the panelists on the many challenges facing international law (and international lawyers) today. Keeping the peace in a rapidly changing political landscape is of course one imperative, but we must also help to meet a range of other challenges including the imperative of economic development and the need to deal with unprecedented health crises, massive refugee outflows, accelerating climate change, persistent gender inequality and other difficult, dynamic issues which require innovative solutions from both public and private international law. Members of the audience will have an opportunity to pose their own questions to the panelists.

Wine and cheese reception to follow.
