Der Lehrstuhl Internationale Beziehungen lädt herzlich ein zu einem Vortrag von:

Rene Fernando Urueña Hernandez

 Zum Thema:

 Will the center hold?  The Colombian Peace Process and International law

The Colombian Government and FARC guerrillas recently signed a historic peace agreement, ending a fifty-year conflict that killed more than two hundred thousand people.  The agreement proved to be exceptional, particularly in the crucial played by international law in its crafting and implementation.  This lecture explores this pivotal rule, and the implications that the Colombian experience may have for the wider international legal order.

René Urueña is an Associate Professor and Director of Research at the Universidad de Los Andes School of Law (Colombia).  Twice an expert witness before the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, Professor Urueña served as an advisor of the Selection Committee of the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (Colombia), and has published extensively on international law and global governance. He holds a doctoral degree (exima cum laude) from the University of Helsinki, was President of the Colombian Academy of International Law, and has been a visiting professor at the University of Utah, a docent at the Institute for Global Law and Policy at Harvard Law School, a research fellow at New York University, and researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public and International Law, in Germany.

Gastvortrag Dr. Katarina Barley fällt aus

 

Leider fällt der heutige Vortrag von Frau Dr. Barley wegen einer dringenden Sitzung in Berlin aus.

Über einen möglichen Nachholtermin werden wir Sie so früh wie möglich informieren.

Als neue Veröffentlichung ist von Prof. Dr. Manuel Fröhlich erschienen:

 

Fröhlich, Manuel/Abiodun Williams (Hrsg.), The UN Secretary-General and The Security Council. A Dynamic Relationship, Oxford 2018.

The United Nations Secretary-General and the United Nations Security Council spend significant amounts of time on their relationship with each other. They rely on each other for such important activities as peacekeeping, international mediation, and the formulation and application of normative standards in defense of international peace and security - in other words the executive aspects of the UN's work. The UN Secretary-General and the Security Council fills an important lacuna in the scholarship on the UN system. Although there exists today an impressive body of literature on the development and significance of the Secretariat and the Security Council as separate organs, an important gap remains in our understanding of the interactions between them. Bringing together some of the most prominent authorities on the subject, this volume is the first book-length treatment of this topic. It studies the UN from an innovative angle, creating new insights on the (autonomous) policy-making of international organizations, and adds to our understanding of the dynamics of intra-organizational relationships. Within the book, the contributors examine how each Secretary-General interacted with the Security Council, touching upon such issues as the role of personality, the formal and informal infrastructure of the relationship, the selection and appointment processes, as well as the Secretary-General's threefold role as a crisis manager, administrative manager, and manager of ideas.
