Speaker: Gregoire Mallard, Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology and Sociology of Development, Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies (Geneva)
In recent years, international relations and law scholars have increasingly debated the normative consequences of the ‘fragmentation’ of international law. More rarely have they studied empirically how tensions between overlapping systems of rules emerge, how conflicts are harmonized, and with what effects. In this presentation, Dr. Mallard will explain how his recent book, 'Fallout: Nuclear Diplomacy in an Age of Global Fracture' (University of Chicago Press, 2014) explores such dynamics in the case of the nuclear non-proliferation regime (NPR) complex.
