Der Lehrstuhl Internationale Beziehungen lädt herzlich ein zu einem Vortrag von:

Rene Fernando Urueña Hernandez

 Zum Thema:

 Will the center hold?  The Colombian Peace Process and International law

The Colombian Government and FARC guerrillas recently signed a historic peace agreement, ending a fifty-year conflict that killed more than two hundred thousand people.  The agreement proved to be exceptional, particularly in the crucial played by international law in its crafting and implementation.  This lecture explores this pivotal rule, and the implications that the Colombian experience may have for the wider international legal order.

He holds a doctoral degree (exima cum laude) from the University of Helsinki, was President of the Colombian Academy of International Law, and has been a visiting professor at the University of Utah, a docent at the Institute for Global Law and Policy at Harvard Law School, a research fellow at New York University, and researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public and International Law, in Germany.
