David Caron Speaks on U.S. Foreign Policy, Rebuilding Iraq and Law of the Sea

Rebuilding Iraq and Law of the Sea

 

An international law expert who worked both on claims arising from the 1979 detention of 52 U.S. nationals in Tehran and on claims arising from the 1991 Gulf War will visit the law school on October 14 and 15 as the Morse Center’s Distinguished Lecturer.

 

David Caron’s free public lecture on The United States and the Laws of Power will take place in the Knight Law Center auditorium, 1515 Agate Street in Eugene, at 7:00 P.M. on Thursday, October 14.

 

The U.S. has sought unilateral actions in pursuit of national interests, which it perceives as best protected by the preservation of our discretion, Caron says. In doing so, [the Bush Administration] has alienated longtime allies and belittled the value of cooperation.

 

Caron at UC Berkeley’s Boalt Hall and directs the International Legal Studies program. He is well known as a scholar, private attorney, and policymaker in the realm of international dispute resolution. His writings cover a spectrum of topics from global environmental change to international tribunals. He was the 25th American to receive the prestigious Diploma of International Law at The Hague Academy, and he is active in public service. Caron’s latest book is Bringing New Law to Ocean Waters, with co-editor Harry N. Scheiber.
