SDSU’s annual Hansen/Hostler Distinguished Lecture series, will explore critical perspectives on major developments in international law, as they relate to global justice.

Organized by SDSU political science professor Jonathan Graubart, "International Law and Global Justice: Friends, Acquaintances or Enemies?" brings together a variety of well-known speakers from across the globe.

“This is one of the few lecture series in the country that looks closely at the complicated and uneasy interaction of global law and justice,” Graubart said. “In doing so, it features a series of critical perspectives that are usually neglected in U.S. public discussion.”

All lectures will be held at Little Theater, and begin at 5pm. A complete list of lecturers is below:

  • Feb 13: Pierre-Richard Prosper, partner at the international law firm, Arent Fox
