Episode 35 - Hope and international law

hope pres picThis episode of the GLAR podcast features a presentation by (podcast host) Professor James A. Green.

James was invited to give the opening keynote address at the 3rd Postgraduate Conference in International Law and Human Rights, hosted by the International Law and Human Rights Unit at the University of Liverpool (17-18 June 2019). His address (although not the following Q&A) was recorded and appears here as a podcast with the kind permission of the conference's organising committee.

The theme of the conference was 'Hope in International Law and Human Rights', and so James' presentation explored this theme, providing some overarching thoughts on the concept of 'hope' in the context of international law. As one would expect, he spoke quite a lot about giraffes. The PowerPoint slides for the presentation can be found here.

The University of Liverpool's Postgraduate Conference in International Law and Human Rights is establishing itself as an important forum for postgraduates in the field to present and discuss their work. The programme for the 3rd Conference can be found here, and the conference can be found/followed on Twitter (@ILHRUconf2019 / #ILHRUconf2019). James would like to thank the conference organising committee (Jasmin Johurun Nessa, Sinead Coakley and Dr Ben Murphy) and everyone at Liverpool.
