On Friday, September 27, Emory Law’s Center for International and Comparative Law will host a conference, “NATO @ 70: The Role of International Law in Collective Security.” The conference, which will take place from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., marks NATO’s contributions to international peace and security and the rule of law. The event will examine how international law, NATO, and the interplay of international and regional organizations have contributed to transatlantic cooperation, promoting peace and safeguarding freedom, and the challenges NATO faces in the coming decades in the face of technological innovation, environmental considerations and new security challenges. 

The keynote speaker will be Steven Hill, who serves as legal advisor for NATO. Speakers also include:

  • Ambassador Jonatan Vseviov, Ambassador of Estonia to the US
  • Lieutenant General Charles Pede, The Judge Advocate General of the US Army
  • Ambassador and Lieutenant General (ret.) Douglas Lute, former US Ambassador to NATO

The conference is free; pre-registration is requested.

Emory Law’s Center for International and Comparative Law creates a dynamic space for scholars and students to explore the interactions among international and domestic legal systems of the world and to engage both theory and practice for effective study and promotion of the rule of law.
