The 2012 Election is fast approaching. Where do the candidates stand on critical issues of diplomacy and international law? What impact will an Obama or Romney Presidency have on the United States's position on international legal issues such as climate change, trade liberalization, international criminal law, or the use of force in anticipatory self-defense? How will still unfolding events such as the Arab Spring (and the continuing Arab-Israeli conflict), the newly assertive China, and the European debt crisis have on the United States's role in the world and its willingness to engage in multilateral institutions? Come hear a panel of experts discuss how these hot button issues might play out over "the next four years."
