Gartner participates in ASIL panel

April 29, 2013

David Gartner, Associate Professor of Law, participated in a panel at the American Society of International Law (ASIL) Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., on April 5.

The panel, “21st Century International Institutions: Lessons from Global Health Governance?” explored the substantial innovations of global health institutions during the last decade.

In contrast to many international organizations, health institutions are expanding participation in governance, adopting performance-based approaches, and building stronger links between global and national level governance, according to the panel description.

Gartner, along with three other panelists, discussed what lessons, if any, can be drawn for the broader challenges facing international organizations when it comes to fostering accountability and ensuring the provision of global public goods.

Gartner’s current research focuses on the role of innovative international institutions and non-state actors in shaping international law and the response to global challenges in areas such as global health, development, education, and the environment.
