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 nyulaw.imodules.com/rubinsymposium and clicking on Registration.
