International Society for Public Law Conference; and American Political Science Conference

Faculty Research Grant
Grant Year

Research presentations at two conferences.

The first conference, “Public Law in an Uncertain World,” is organized by the International Society for Public Law. The conference’s purpose is to “explore and evaluate the function and limits of public law in our uncertain world in relation to war and peace, human rights, religion, state-building, constitution-making, formal and informal institutional change, and revolutionary movements." Participation in this interdisciplinary conference organized by the international law scholarly community bridges the gap between international relations and international law.

The second conference is organized by the main political science association – the American Political Science Association, and is thus the most important gathering of political scientists in the US as well as abroad. Powell will be presenting a chapter of her book entitled : “Islamic Law States and the United Nations’ Tribunal for the Law of the Sea.”
