acunsThe Center for Governance and Sustainability is proud to announce that our own research associate Natalia Escobar-Pemberthy has won acceptance to the 2016 ACUNS Workshop: “Supporting States’ Implementation of International Law.” Natalia’s work on multilateral environmental agreements is a cornerstone of our research portfolio here at the Center, and her diligent, insightful analysis is gaining recognition worldwide, evidenced by both this award and her participation at UNEA-2.

The 2016 ACUNS workshop is based on how to support and incentivize states to comply with international law. Moving away from the idea that comply with international law primarily because they are threatened with sanctions, the workshop attendees will tackle complex issues that impact compliance, such as capacity to comply, relations with other states, and reputation in the international system. Participants will work on several major themes in international law: climate change, counter-terrorism, international criminal justice, disarmament, and human rights.

The workshop will take place October 1st-12th, 2016 at Jindal Global University in Sonipat, India. For more information, click here.
