10/22: Globalization and the Future of Health Law: Harmonization or Diversity?

Petrie-Flom Center Faculty Co-Director I. Glenn Cohen will give the introduction for this event featuring Belinda Bennett, Professor of Health and Medical Law, University of Sydney.

From its earliest stages, the themes of recognizing rights and managing risks have been constant features of health law debate. More recently, globalization has become an important theme for health law. International human rights law and global public health have, for example, both become important aspects of contemporary health law. In this context, it is no longer sufficient for health law to have a purely national focus. Analyzing these trends in the development of health law, Professor Bennett considers the future development of health law and whether the trend towards globalization will lead to greater harmonization or greater diversity.

Lunch will be provided.
