Professor Chris Waters, Faculty of Law University of Windsor


The role of cities in redefining international law and international relations is increasingly a subject of interest. Whether tackling climate change through city networks or acting as “sanctuary” cities, cities have found innovative ways to (re)assert their role as international actors. Yet the role of border cities in international law remains underexplored. Border cities, often considered marginal or even suspect, have unique practical interactive and interpretive experiences on international law and international relations which provide insight into governance in borderlands and beyond.     

Chair: Professor Carl Stychin, Director of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS)
