Association News


The United Nations Academic Impact in conjunction with ISA held a Forum on February 28th, 2017 to discuss a new Treaty under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. This is part of an ongoing series of events that will be sponsored by ISA in conjunction with UNAI on various topics. The group of twenty was a mix of ISA members, UN personnel and representatives from state missions. The series is organized by a committee chaired by Joel Oestreich (Drexel University), and includes Jaqueline Braveboy-Wagner (CUNY); DÍlidji Eric Degila (Graduate Institute Geneva); Melissa Labonte (Fordham); and Kurt Mills (Glasgow). Rachel Tiller, a participant of the forum and ISA member, wrote an article summarizing the event which can be found by clicking on the Find out More link below.
