Weiler speaks on international law in crisis, Sept. 22
Posted September 19, 2003; 10:12 a.m.
A lecture on "Governance Without Governments: The Legitimacy Crisis of International Law" will be presented at 8 p.m. Monday, Sept. 22, in 104 Computer Science Building.
Joseph Weiler, the Joseph Straus Professor and the European Union Jean Monnet Chair at New York University School of Law, will speak about his forthcoming book by the same title.
Weiler is expected to examine the foundations of international law, an area in which there tends not to be a centralized source of legitimate authority through which laws can be made. He will discuss the recent emergence of international institutions that strive to create governing norms.
Weiler also serves as director of the Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law and Justice at NYU. His recent publications include "Integration in an Expanding European Union," with I. Begg and J. Peterson (Blackwell, 2003), "The European Court of Justice," with G. de Burca (Oxford, 2000), and "The EU, the WTO and NAFTA" (Oxford, 2000).
Weiler's lecture is part of this year's Alpheus Mason Lectures in Constitutional Law and Political Thought, sponsored by the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions . For more information, contact Seana Sugrue at (609) 258-6333.
