International Organizations Event Upcoming in NYC
A terrific event is coming up in NYC Friday, March 10, 2017, 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at the New York City Bar. Ian Johnstone, Jacob Katz Cogan, Thomas G. Weiss, and Anjali Dayal will discuss the Future of International Organizations. The Moderator will be Mona Khalil of Independent Diplomat.
The speakers are editors and contributors to the Oxford Handbook of International Organizations.
This is the topic of the evening: “Virtually every important question of public policy today involves an international organization. From security to 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 scepticism 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?”
