SU College of LawAssociate Professor Cora True-Frost recently spoke at the 2017 Annual Conference of the European Society of International Law (ESIL). She presented her upcoming publication, “What Happens to Human Rights When the United Nations Addresses the ‘Conditions Conducive to Terrorism’?”
“The various organs and agencies of the United Nations have embraced state efforts to counter violent extremism. The UN’s embrace has simultaneously opened opportunities for and created obstacles to its promotion of international human rights,” says True-Frost. “This panel addressed the numerous new challenges in the fight against terrorism, with contributions on migration law, countering violent extremism law, and private international law remedies. Practitioners, scholars, and diplomats present affirmed that the panel discussion would be very helpful to their work going forward.”
True-Frost attended the conference in Naples, Italy, through a grant from the Andrew Berlin Fund via the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism. The Andrew Berlin Family Fund was created in 2010 when the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs received an endowment gift to fund faculty and graduate student research relating to issues of national security. The Berlin Fund, established in honor of Professor David H. Bennett, operates through INSCT, a collaboration between SU Maxwell School and the Syracuse Law.
