In the face of covert military operations, debt downgrades, secessionist conflict, and the rise of supranational entities, does sovereignty mean what it used to in most countries of the world? A wine and cheese reception will follow.

This is the kick-off event to International Law Weekend, October 20-22. This jointly-sponsored event brings together hundreds of practitioners, academics, judges, NGO experts, U.N. diplomats, and students. The theme of ILW 2011 is "International Law and National Politics.” More than 30 panels will examine how—and to what extent—international standards influence the application and interpretation of national law, touching upon such diverse areas as human rights and humanitarian intervention, national security, immigration, trade, labor, and the environment.
Event Location: 42 West 44th St. (bet. 5th & 6th Ave.)
