On February 18, Erika George, Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, will present at a Cornell Law School symposium titled Forces Without Borders: Non-State Actors in a Changing Middle East.
George will participate in a panel titled “Women: Visibility, Rights, and a Status in Flux.”
Sponsored by Cornell Law School’s International Law Journal, the symposium examines the role of non-state actors in the “Arab Spring.” Scholars, practitioners, and other commentators will make presentations and participate in panel discussions on the legal status and significance of non-state actors in the context of the ongoing change in the Middle East and North Africa. The Journal will eventually publish an issue based on the symposium.
The event is open to the entire graduate, professional, and university community, as well as the general public. For more information, click here.
