Berman, Dickinson to participate in Temple roundtable

October 02, 2008

Dean Paul Schiff Berman and professor Laura A. Dickinson, of the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, will participate in a roundtable on international law at Temple University Beasley School of Law on Saturday, Oct. 4.

The roundtable, hosted by the School of Law's Institute for International Law, will bring together a small group of distinguished scholars to discuss the book, Socializing States: Promoting Human Rights through International Law, by Ryan Goodman and Derek Jinks.

The book examines three specific mechanisms for influencing state practice: coercion, persuasion, and acculturation, and describes the distinct, and sometimes competing, logic of each mechanism. Goodman and Jinks use these mechanisms to prescribe strategies for various actors to exploit those institutions to promote human rights.
