The Global Future of International Trade, Human Rights, and Development
Download the brochure
Barrier-free trade, protection of human rights, and economic development were the hallmarks
and guiding principles of the international order created following the Second World War.
The U.S. has been a leader in shaping the order into a global one. This current order is now
undergoing change, with worldwide debate on what the future global order should look like.
How will the future order operate? Who will gain and who will lose? How will the new order
interact with the old? How are existing institutions including governments to respond?
What is the right balance between national, local, and global interests?
Join experts from the Texas A&M School of Law, scholars, practitioners, and
government officials to consider the global and local future of international
trade, human rights, and development.
$75 registration fee. Approved for 10.25 CLE hours.

The Future of International Organization
There is no fee for this event, please sign in to register.
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.
