The Center organizes and academic and policy conferences focusing on global politics and international and transnational law. Recent conferences focus on global governance, international intellectual property law, the law and ethics of directed energy weapons, combating human trafficking and the law and policy implications of drone use in modern warfare. These events build on faculty research interests, stimulate innovative policy discussions and forge connections between the Center and a variety of domestic and international partners. Center conferences are often organized in association with partners at the College of Law, including the Center for Law, Science & Innovation, and other ASU partners such as the Security Defense Systems Initiative as well as external partners including the American Society for International Law and the New America Foundation.
This conference links scholars, government officials, activists, law enforcement representatives and social service providers to discuss how federal, state and international law can be used to combat human trafficking with a special focus on prosecutions.
