In an increasingly globalized world, nationalism is on the rise. International law, and international institutions, are in decline. How can scholars of history, politics, and law, help us understand the relevance of international thinking in the 21st century? In this public forum, world leading researchers in the history of international thinking speak about the work they do, and what it can tell us about the world we live in.

The Speakers:

  • Professor Anne Orford,  Redmond Barry Distinguished Professor, Michael D Kirby Chair of International Law, and an Australian Laureate Fellow at Melbourne Law School at the University of Melbourne, where she directs the Laureate Program in International Law.
  • Professor Chris Reus-Smit, Professor of International Relations at the University of Queensland and a Fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia.
  • Professor David Armitage, the Lloyd C. Blankfein Professor of History and former Chair of the Department of History at Harvard University, where he teaches intellectual history and international history.
  • Professor Patricia Owens, Professor and Head of the Department of International Relations at the University of Sussex, after holding positions in London and Oxford
  • Chair: Glenda Sluga, Professor of International History, and ARC Kathleen Fitzpatrick Laureate Fellow at the University of Sydney.
