Each year, JLIA sponsors a number of lectures and symposia. Recent programs have included The U.S.-India Strategic Relationship in the 21st Century: Cross-Sector Collaboration to Promote Sustainable Development (with Dickinson College and the Strategic Studies Institute of the United States Army War College), Geographies of Powers: Justice, Revolution, and Cultural Imagination (with The Center for Global Studies (CGS) at Penn State University), and a year-long lecture series on the evolving national security narrative, which included contributions from Anne-Marie Slaughter, Harold Koh, P.J. Crowley, Ronald Deibert, Harold James, and other distinguished scholars and policymakers.
JLIA's next issue, to be published in the fall of 2013, will examine the evolution and future of the role of international criminal justice in international relations, as well as the structural challenges facing the International Criminal Court in the coming decades.
JLIA's 2014 symposium is scheduled for February 2014 and will explore the nexus between global resource scarcity, law and security. Registration and other details will be posted shortly.
