When The Global Rules Break Down – Insights and Ideas for the Future of International Law and Justice

As a modest actor on the world's stage, Canada has long benefited from the rules-based international order but almost daily we now hear of ways in which this system is breaking down, whether in trade, peace and security, human rights and the environment. Renowned experts in international law and justice will consider key examples of the political and technological challenges facing the international legal order and provide their insights into why this systemic breakdown is occurring, in what ways is it dangerous and destructive, and in what ways it could be beneficial to rebuild a more responsive, inclusive and just international order. Drawing from dramatic examples of contestation on the world stage these experts will provide their insights into how the international order needs to evolve to bring us closer to a global system of justice for all.

A public panel will be held from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM.

Moderator
