Dickinson discusses new book at Boston College Law School

November 19, 2010

Foundation Professor of Law Laura Dickinson spoke on Nov. 19, at Boston College Law School in Newton, Mass., about her forthcoming book, Outsourcing War and Peace.

The book, which is being published by Yale University Press, examines the increasing privatization of military, security, and foreign aid functions of government, considers the impact of this trend on core public values, and outlines mechanism for protecting these values in an era of privatization.

Dickinson is the faculty director of the College of Law’s Center for Law and Global Affairs. Her work focuses on human rights, national security, foreign affairs privatization, and qualitative empirical approaches to international law. Prior to her appointment to ASU, Dickinson was on faculty at the University of Connecticut School of Law, and she is a former Visiting Research Scholar and Visiting Professor in the Law and Public Affairs Program at Princeton University.
