Event description

Description

The Trump Administration, Nationalist Populism, and the Restatement (Fourth) of the Foreign Relations Law of the United States

In this talk, Prof Paul Stephan will sketch out approaches to international law and foreign relations produced by tension between populist and nationalist political forces, as expressed in the election of Donald Trump as President, and what might be called the international law establishment, which is described alternately as elitist, technocratic, expert, liberal or cosmopolitan. He will situate the recently completed Fourth Restatement (first stage) within this conflict. He will argue for the inevitability of both political accountability and technical expertise, in this field as much as any other.

Paul Stephan is an expert on international business, international dispute resolution and comparative law, with an emphasis on Soviet and post-Soviet legal systems. Stephan has advised governments and international organizations, taken part in cases in the Supreme Court of the United States, the federal courts, and various foreign judicial and arbitral proceedings, and lectured to professionals and scholarly groups around the world on issues raised by the globalization of the world economy. He currently is a coordinating reporter for the American Law Institute’s Restatement (Fourth) of the Foreign Relations Law of the United States.
