March 2-3, 2017 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.

March 10, 2017 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.
