The World Crisis and International Law
Episode #13 of Borderlines features distinguished international economic law scholar Paul B. Stephan discussing his new book, The World Crisis and International Law: The Knowledge Economy and the Battle for the Future. Professor Stephan (Virginia) joins host Professor Katerina Linos (Berkeley) for a fascinating look at how the limits of international law are tested and found wanting in the era of globalization. The development of the tech economy in the 1990s changed historic international institutions, creating fissures between nations that demand new forms of international cooperation in the face of global crises. Don’t miss these renowned experts as they examine Putin’s misjudgment of response to Ukraine one year after the invasion, and reveal that both the Trump and Biden administrations are more protectionist and populist then their predecessors. From free trade to open borders, listeners will come away with a new perspective on the Information Age and what the future may hold for economic liberalism and the rule of law.
