On September 9, 2011, CICL hosted the New York Research Roundtable at the St. John’s Manhattan campus. CICL co-directors Peggy McGuinness and Chris Borgen organized the roundtable, which brought together international law scholars from around the New York area to discuss six works-in-progress, including:
- Kristen Boon (Seton Hall Law), The High Seas Fisheries: A Case Study in Scarcity and Redistribution in International Law
- Adil Haque (Rutgers Law), Killing in the Fog of War
- Claire Kelly (Brooklyn Law), Breaking the Frame Between Public International Trade and Private International Business
- Barbara Stark (Hofstra Law), International Law from the Bottom-Up: Fragmentation and Transformation
- Jennifer Trahan (NYU), The Blank Prose Crime of Aggression
- Peggy McGuinness (St. John’s Law), Congressional Human Rights Policy: An Empirical Examination of Legal and Normative Effects.
The commentators included Professors John Dehn (U.S. Military Academy), Alexander Greenawalt (Pace Law), and Mark Shulman (Pace Law), as well as St. John’s Law professors Mark Movsesian and Assistant Dean Jeff Walker. The Roundtable will be hosted twice yearly by the Center.
