The Global Governance Institute in collaboration with the UCL Centre for Ethics and Law will host Professor David Kennedy - Manley O. Hudson Professor of Law and Faculty Director of the Institute for Global Law and Policy at Harvard Law School.

Politicians, citizens and policy specialists alike inhabit a technocratic world of irresolvable argument and uncertain knowledge. As they argue and struggle with one another, a world of astonishing political and economic inequality is born. Legal experts in particular have developed a sophisticated vocabulary for global management strangely detached from its distributive consequences. Kennedy proposes tools to model and contest expert work drawing on his experiences with international lawyers, human rights advocates, policy professionals, economic development specialists, military lawyers, and humanitarian strategists.
