Event Type: 
Lectures/Panels/Discussions
When: 
30 October 2012
Where: 
George Washington University, Washington, D.C.

The Law of the Sea Treaty aims to codify divers activities and the management of natural resources. Coming into force in 1994, the treaty has yet to be ratified by the US Congress. Proponents argue it protects US interests at seas, while opponents say argue it is an infringement of US sovereignty. Caitlyn Antrim of the Stimson Center will argue the treaty is in the United States' interests. Steven Groves of the Heritage Foundation will argue the treaty is not in the United States' interests. This program will be moderated by Edward Swaine, Professor of Law at The George Washington University Law School.

This event is co-sponsored with the American Academy of Diplomacy.

This event will take place from 6:30-8:30pm at the Jack Morton Auditorium at George Washington University.
