The Evolution of International Courts and the Reassembling of International Society, with Mikael Rask Madsen

AUP | 6, rue du Colonel Combes | 75007 Paris
Thursday, March 30, 2017 - 18:00

Mikael Rask Madsen’s research is focused on globalization and the role of legal institutions and professionals in these processes. His current research concerns the special interaction between law and global integration, the role and power of lawyers in globalization, the increased importance of supranational legal institutions and more generally, the international transformation of law and authority towards networked expertise. 

The George and Irina Schaeffer Center for the Study of Genocide, Human Rights and Conflict Prevention has asked Mikael Madsen, as the director of the innovative Danish research center iCourts (Centre of Excellence for International Courts, University of Copenhagen) and well-known specialist on international justice, to address the impact of international tribunals on the ‘reassembling’ of international society.  

Prof. Madsen is the author or co-author of numerous publications, including most recently two chapters in the Dictionnaire de la Justice pénale internationale (2017); and a chapter on ‘The European Court of Human Rights and the Politics of International Law’ in the Handbook on the Politics of International Law (2017), as well as a chapter on ‘Global Actors: Networks, Elites, Institutions’ in the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Politics (2016).  

Convener and moderator: Pr. Susan Perry (AUP)  Discussant: Dr. Philipp Ambach, Legal Advisor, International Criminal Court
