Stephen Minas


“In recent years, international cooperation and competition have been dramatically changed by the intensification of environmental crises, the growing economic weight of large developing countries, technological and financial innovation, the rise of a new generation of international organizations and expanded non-state actor participation in governance. The study and further elaboration of mechanisms of transnational cooperation and dispute resolution in this context can contribute to meeting our most pressing shared challenges.”
