Georgia Journal of International & Comparative Law symposium
Tuesday, February 5, 2013 - 9:30am to 4:45pm
Larry Walker Room, Dean Rusk Hall
The scarcity of resources, whether food, water, fuel sources, or clean air, may be a defining reality for global policy in the years to come. By bringing together leading policy makers and legal scholars, conference organizers intend for the forum to serve as a foundation for future scholarship on the role of international law in scarcity issues.
The keynote speaker will be Ertharin Cousin, United Nations World Food Programme executive director and 1982 Georgia Law alumna. Among the issues to be addressed are: how best to conceptualize scarcity, the regulation of scarcity and its potential impacts, and how to work forward in addressing the problem from the current available solutions.
