Professor Sterio Participates in “Brain Trust” Regarding Legal Limits of the Use of the Veto Power

Professor and Associate Dean Milena Sterio participated in a one-day “brain trust” workshop on March 1, on the “Legal Limits to the Use of the Veto Power,” organized by Professor Jennifer Trahan, NYU Global Justice Center, and held at the offices of Foley Hoag in New York City.  The “brain trust” was a workshop which assembled academics, state representatives (legal officers from several different countries’ United Nations’ missions), and NGO representatives, to discuss the legal limits to the use of the veto power (within the Security Council) in the face of atrocity crimes.  The morning session focused on the legal issues, whereas the afternoon session focused on various strategies necessary to persuade states to commit to limits to the use of the veto power.
