On October 15-16, NYU School of Law’s Center for Human Rights and Global Justice held a two day conference titled, “The Domestic Consequences of International Human Rights Treaty Ratification.” The conference, organized by Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Professor of Law Ryan Goodman and former Straus Institute for Advanced Study of Law & Justice Fellow Beth Simmons, addressed the effects that international legal norms have had on actual rights practices within countries.
In addition to Goodman, David Golove, Hiller Family Foundation Professor of Law, and José Alvarez, Herbert and Rose Rubin Professor of International Law, served as discussants at various panels during the conference. Goodman also presented a paper, "Socialization and the Effects of Treaty Ratification," which he co-authored with Derek Jinks.
