Professor Strong Publishes New Article on International Lawmaking

Professor S.I. Strong recently had a new article on international lawmaking published. The article, “Clash of Cultures: Epistemic Communities, Negotiation Theory, and International Lawmaking,” 50 Akron Law Review 495 (2017), discusses the role that expert groups play in the negotiation of international treaties and considers whether and to what extent theories developed in the context of interpersonal negotiation can be applied to interstate negotiations.

This article arises out of Professor Strong’s work with the U.S. Department of State and the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) in matters relating to the development of a new instrument in the area of international commercial dispute resolution.
