This panel will address the effectiveness of treaties over time, with particular emphasis on the adaptability of treaties to present-day challenges. Can existing or contemplated treaties remain effective in an era of rapid change? What tools enable international lawyers to assist in the international community in addressing this and related questions?

This event is co-sponsored by The United Nations Law Committee, the American Branch of the International Law Association, and GW Law's International and Comparative Law Program.
