Public Event: Panel Discussion “International Law in Crisis – On the Challenges Caused by Terrorism and Populism”


As part of the Long Night of the Sciences (Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften) on 24 June 2017, the
Berlin Potsdam Research Group / KFG -
The International Rule of Law - Rise or Decline?

would like to invite you to a panel discussion about

“International Law in Crisis – On the Challenges Caused by Terrorism and Populism”

International law is currently put into question by populist movements and by terrorist violence. Are these short-term phenomena regarding a long-term development towards an ever intense juridification of international relations? Or are these signs of a fundamental change in global structures? Can international law confront the terrorist threat in a meaningful way and help to confine it? Is the rise of populism counterproductive in the global war against terror? Is international law facing a radical transformation?

Panelists: Prof. Jeffrey Dunoff (Temple University, Philadelphia), Prof. Tiyanjana Maluwa (Pennsylvania State University), Prof. Andreas Zimmermann (Universität Potsdam)

Chair: Prof. Heike Krieger (Freie Universität Berlin)

The discussion will take place on Saturday, 24 June 2017, from 6 pm to 8 pm at the lecture hall 2093, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Unter den Linden 6 (west wing, second floor).

Please note that a ticket for the Long Night of the Sciences is necessary to attend. Tickets (adults: 14 Euros, family ticket: 27 Euros) can be purchased at all S-Bahn and BVG ticket machines and points-of-sale. More information can be found here: www.langenachtderwissenschaften.de
