Law Faculty Professors join World Trade Organization Lecture Series in Geneva

Given the expertise of several Professors at the Law Faculty in international trade and investment law, the Faculty has been invited to join a multi-year lecture series under the auspices of the Government of Israel's Mission to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Geneva. This institutional cooperation includes, in addition to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the law schools of Columbia University (NYC), Stanford University (San Francisco) and the World Trade Institute in Bern, The first lecture on behalf of the Law Faculty was delivered by Prof. Tomer Broude, on the topic of  "Lessons from TPP on state regulatory space: a comparison of international trade and investment agreements". The lecture presented empirical-textual research conducted by Prof. Broude together with co-authors Prof. Yoram Haftel of the Department of International Relations and Prof. Alex Thompson of Ohio State University, aiming at measuring the extent to which international trade and investment agreements with active dispute settlement systems can constrain national public policy.
