Navigating the Backlash against Global Law and Institutions: Australian perspectives
On 17-18 June 2019, the ANU College of Law hosted the global research workshop 'Navigating the Backlash against Global Law and Institutions: Australian Perspectives'. As part of the ANU Global Research Partnerships Scheme, the workshop attracted a dynamic blend of scholars and policymakers who analysed the limits of the global legal order, the scale of threats that order currently faces, and the potential responses to those threats. Academics from ANU, Indiana University, the University of Maryland, the University of New South Wales and the University of Canberra were joined by experts from government and civil society. The workshop considered how Australia and other states should respond to the 'backlash' against global norms and institutions fuelled by recent de-stabilising global political developments.
