Keynote: Global justice, sovereignty and historical memory

This event is a keynote address by Professor Emeritus Michael Humphrey, drawing on his recent work on political violence and global norms of justice. Its concern is with the rule-based orders of globalisation and the reassertion of sovereignty to resist them.

Recently, global normative rights have been increasingly resisted by different states through superficial compliance, sabotage and outright withdrawal from courts and jurisdictions. Professor Humphrey argues that these pushbacks are not simply an erosion of global norms but the surfacing of more fundamental conflicts about state formation and historical memory.
