Global Universities In An Age Of Anxiety

Event Details

We live in times of unprecedented complexity. The challenges we face are global, yet responses have been muted and insular. In this lecture, Professor Toope will argue that critical thinking and collaboration, across borders, disciplines and institutions, have never been more crucial than they are now.

Professor Toope publishes in leading international journals on international dispute resolution, international environmental law, human rights, the use of force, and international legal theory, and has lectured at leading universities around the globe. His current book project with Professor Jutta Brunnée explores mechanisms and processes fostering stability and change in international law.

Professor Toope also served as Chair of the United Nations Working Group on Enforced and Involuntary Disappearances, and as Fact-Finder for the Commission of Inquiry into the Actions of Canadian Government Officials in relation to Maher Arar.
