Conference set on unilateralism, U.S. power, Dec. 5

A conference titled "Unilateralism and U.S. Power?" is set for Friday, Dec. 5, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.

The all-day conference is intended to examine several issues, including: U.S. policy in trade, environment, human rights and security affairs; the historical extent of the U.S.'s commitment to multilateralism; factors that explain the U.S.'s inclination toward unilateralism versus multilateralism; and the means for countries to influence such U.S. policy.

Anne-Marie Slaughter, dean of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs , will open the conference at 8:30 a.m. Paula Dobrianski, undersecretary of state for global affairs with the U.S. Department of State, will provide opening remarks.

Other speakers will include scholars from Princeton, Columbia, Georgetown, UCLA, Stanford, New York University and University College London.

The event is sponsored by the Program in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy, the Program in Law and Public Affairs, the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies and the Woodrow Wilson School.
