In our continued efforts to further advance intellectual exchange with academics from around the world, the Allard School of Law is pleased to announce a new visiting scholar in-residence program for those working in the Global South in the area of Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL).

This is an incredible opportunity to work with leading and highly respected scholars in the field, at a university that is consistently ranked among the top 20 public universities in the world.

“The Allard School of Law is home to a number of scholars who have made significant contributions in areas of international law,” explained Toby Susan Goldbach, Assistant Professor at the Allard School of Law. “The establishment of this new program is a tremendous opportunity both for scholars in the Global South to work alongside faculty at Allard Law and also for us to learn from our colleagues who are doing cutting edge research in International Law.”

The four faculty members who led the establishment of the program are (pictured from left to right): Karin Mickelson, Sara Ghebremusse, Asha Kaushal, Toby Susan Goldbach and Natasha Affolder (missing from the picture). Professor Mickelson is one of the original members of the second generation of TWAIL scholars. She is a leading international scholar in the area of international environmental law, especially as it relates to global inequity.
