Professor Helen Xanthaki Quoted in United Nations Habitat III Issue Paper
Professor Helen Xanthaki, Director of the Sir William Dale Centre for Legislative Studies, is quoted in the Habitat III issue paper of the United Nations. The paper expresses the UN point of view regarding the state of affairs in urban law. The impact of Professor Xanthaki's research is accentuated by the fact that the UN Task Team for Habitat III, which consists of multiple UN agencies, has adopted her conceptual framework for the quality of law as an important indicator for the state of urban law.
