Hauser Globalization Colloquium: Global Governance and Legal Theory
Professor Ryan Goodman
Thursdays, 4:00 p.m.-5:50 p.m.
Vanderbilt Hall, Room 202
The Hauser Colloquium for 2012-13 focuses on the intersection of international law and politics. International law and international politics are in tension with one another, since law purports to be general and principled, while politics is often highly particular and shaped by interests and power. To explore this tension and its ramifications, this seminar will feature speakers both from political science and from law, who will, from different disciplinary and paradigmatic perspectives, examine how institutions and law reflect, and alter, the availability of information, interests of relevant actors, and policy outcomes.
The speaker sessions are open to the entire NYU community - all welcome. Papers are available approximately one week before each session, and should be downloaded from the website and read in advance.
