As Brexit and the 2016 U.S. election–among many other recent events–have demonstrated, globalization is having an enormous impact on our thinking about sovereignty and citizenship. This panel examines political, legal, economic, and other implications of challenges to historic ideas about sovereignty, with particular attention to the interplay between respect for sovereign borders and a responsibility to promote global concerns, such as universal human rights. Panelists include leading figures in areas such as public international law, international governance, human rights, international trade, the rights of indigenous people, and religious law.
