U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Discusses the Rule of Law

Fall 2013

United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson visited the Law School to deliver a lecture on promoting peace, development, and human rights through the rule of law. “When adhered to, the rule of law at the international level makes the conduct of member states predictable and legitimate and provides a means to peacefully resolve any disputes,” Eliasson told the crowd. “It is the anchor and foundation of international peace and security.” The lecture was hosted by Columbia Law School’s Center on Global Governance.
