THE 2018 OTTO L. WALTER LECTURE

THE NAFTA FRONTIER:

MULTILATERALISM UP AGAINST THE WALL? A lecture chaired by Professor Ruti G. Teitel Is the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) dead—or just sleeping? What does America gain from renegotiating a longstanding economic treaty with its two largest trading partners? How should markets, the courts, and private citizens react? And can this trade deal really be undone by a stroke of the president’s pen? Professor Barry Appleton will elaborate on what America’s renegotiation of NAFTA means. He will also examine how America’s attempt to modify a nearly 25-year-old foundational economic treaty could affect the global system and our nation’s place in it. SPEAKERS Professor Barry Appleton is the author of two books on NAFTA and an adjunct professor at New York Law School, where he teaches international arbitration. Professor Appleton is a lawyer in Ontario, Canada, New York State, and the District of Columbia. He holds law degrees from Cambridge University and Queen’s University. He is a pioneer in the resolution of investment disputes under NAFTA and was a governmental advisor when NAFTA was negotiated in the 1990s. Ruti G. Teitel is the Ernst C. Stiefel Professor of Comparative Law at New York Law School; Director of New York Law School’s Institute for Global Law, Justice, and Policy; and author of Globalizing Transitional Justice (Oxford University Press, 2014).
