The Future of International Organization
Friday, March 10, 2017 | 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Due to popular demand, this program is at capacity and registration is closed.

Virtually every important question of public policy today involves an international organization. From trade to intellectual property to health policy and beyond, governments interact with international organizations in almost everything they do. Yet after decades of progressive institutionalization, the tide seems to be turning. In Africa, states are withdrawing from the International Criminal Court. In Europe, an “ever closer Union” seems a distant ideal. And the new leadership in the United States has signaled deep skepticism about the value of all international organizations. Is this the beginning of the end of international organization? What role will international institutions play in the changing geopolitical landscape of the 21st Century? Please join us for a discussion with the co-editors and contributors to the Oxford Handbook of International Organizations to explore these and other pressing questions on the future of international organization.
