Global Governance and Political Economy: A lecture by David Kennedy

David Kennedy is a Professor of Law and Director of the Institute for Global Law and Policy at Harvard.

The institutions, actors and legal systems that comprise and shape the current global order today have been an important concern for international lawyers. This lecture will focus on identifying and understanding these regimesand their role in the global and the local, the public and the private, the formal and the informal. What is the relationship between legal systems at different levels of the current global order? Where can we locate power and responsibility in this structure? How can we imagine change in global governance? Professor Kennedy will speak to these urgent questions and their implications for international lawyers through the lens of political economy.

There will be additional comments from José Enrique Alvarez, Herbert and Rose Rubin Professor of International Law at NYU School of Law, and Rosalind Fredericks, Assistant Professor at NYU Gallatin School of Individualized Study. Reception to follow.

 Co-sponsored by: The Institute for International Law and Justice at NYU School of Law (IILJ) and NYU Gallatin School of Individualized Study. Part of the Gallatin Human Rights Initiative and the Gallatin Distinguished Faculty Lecture Series.
