International Justice in the Age of Populism: A Talk with Dr. Payam Akhavan

International Justice in the Age of Populism: A Talk with Dr. Payam Akhavan

“Obsolete divisive ideologies must give way to the inescapable fact that we are a single race inhabiting a single home.” – Dr. Payam Akhavan

Dr. Payam Akhavan is an international lawyer and professor at McGill University in Montreal. He delivered the 2017 CBC Massey LecturesIn Search of a Better World: A Human Rights Odyssey.

At this talk, hosted by the Global Reporting Centre, Dr. Akhavan discusses the challenge the rise of populism poses to the international justice system. The United Nations and International Criminal Court are increasingly viewed as elitist and a threat to national sovereignty. Are these concerns legitimate? How can they be addressed?

On November 2nd at 3:00pm, come to the main classroom (104) of the UBC School of Journalism, located at 6388 Crescent Road, to learn, discuss and enjoy some FREE PIZZA!
