Symposium: Internationalism and Sovereignty

On March 29, 2019, the Center for International and Comparative Law at Saint Louis University and the Saint Louis University Law Journal will hold a symposium on "Internationalism and Sovereignty." Here's the idea:
Brexit, hybrid war, wall campaigns, mass migration, climate change: In the present political moment, some of our perennial demands on internationalism - its management of the passions of nationalism and logics of sovereignty - have become acute tests of its potential and limitations. At this time of breakdown and opportunity, our spring 2019 Symposium addresses a vital question: can internationalism meet the challenges of the contemporary?
