Broken - A Palestinian Journey Through International Law

Further Events

Public Film Screening of the documentary including a subsequent discussion with the director, Mohammed Alatar.

This prize-winning documentary is centred around the wall dividing Israel and Palestine and the people that are affected by this barrier. Despite an advisory opinion by the International Court of Justice deeming the construction of the wall a breach of International Law, the edification will soon come to be finished. The film features responses by people involved in both the construction and contestation of the wall and emphasizes the role of the ICJ in such contentious issues of International Law.

Venue: University of Duisburg-Essen, LX1203, Lotharstraße 63a, 47057 Duisburg

Shadow Negotiators: How the UN Shapes the Rules of Global Trade to Protect Food Security

Käte Hamburger Lecture

In the 34th Käte Hamburger Lecture, Dr Matias E Margulis, Lecturer in International Political Economy at the School of Social and Political Science (University of Edinburgh), will shed light on the interlinkages between food security and international trade in global governance.

Fighting hunger is a longstanding goal of international cooperation based on the recognition that hunger is a global problem that cannot be solved by states acting alone. In this talk, Margulis will analyse efforts by international organizations to incorporate human rights and development concerns related to food security into international economic law. Thereby he seeks to demonstrate that multiple United Nations agencies – including the Food and Agriculture Organization, the World Food Programme, and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights – have intervened in global trade rule-making at the World Trade Organization in an effort to steer such rules toward outcomes that protect global food security.
