Danish Ambassador to Give Keynote at JILP Symposium

On Oct. 22, Peter Tak­soe-Jensen, Dan­ish Ambas­sador to the Unit­ed States (right), will deliv­er a keynote address at a JILP sym­po­sium on the promis­es and chal­lenges of a melt­ing arc­tic.  Until recent­ly, Mr. Tak­soe-Jensen was the UN assis­tant sec­re­tary-gen­er­al for legal affairs, and he has also worked exten­sive­ly in the Dan­ish for­eign min­istry, where he dealt direct­ly with issues of arc­tic gov­er­nance.

The sym­po­sium, “On Thin Ice: Inter­na­tion­al Law and Envi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion in a Melt­ing Arc­tic,” will also fea­ture dis­tin­guished speak­ers from gov­ern­ment, acad­e­mia, NGOs, the pri­vate sec­tor, and the Unit­ed Nations as we exam­ine the promise and threat of an acces­si­ble Arc­tic.  Just after one of the hottest sum­mers on record, come par­tic­i­pate in a time­ly dis­cus­sion of gov­er­nance, dis­pute res­o­lu­tion, and new legal approach­es to envi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment.

The event begins at 9 a.m. on Oct. 22, and will take place at New York University’s Van­der­bilt Hall, 40 Wash­ing­ton Square South.  Please RSVP by vis­it­ing and click­ing on Reg­is­tra­tion.
