Please join us for the second in a series of lectures on US-Australia Dialogues on International Trade and Resource Governance Law.

The speaker is Associate Professor Michael Fakhri, a faculty member of the Environmental and Natural Resources Law Center at the University of Oregon School of Law. He is currently working on questions of how Inuit seal hunting in the Arctic is defining the relationship between international trade law and concepts of sovereignty. He is also a Conversation Leader with Oregon Humanities where he facilitates state-wide public conversations about meanings of fair and free trade. He holds degrees in law and biology, and prior to academia worked for major business law firm.

This lecture is part of a series titled US-Australia Dialogues on International Trade and Resource Governance Law, which is sponsored by the Embassy of the United States of America in Australia.
