02 June 2022: Thomas Franck Lecture by Harold H. Koh

Thomas Franck Lecture

KFG Berlin Potsdam Research Group "The International Rule of Law - Rise or Decline?"

The Berlin Potsdam Research Group 'The International Rule of Law - Rise or Decline?' hosted a public lecture by Professor Harold H. Koh, Yale University, on

"Inside the Biden Administration's Approach to International Law and Institutions".

"So when Biden came in, he was pushing for a thick theory of international law, based on three smart power principles: First, that human rights should be at the center of our foreign policy, second, what we call the three D's - Diplomacy, Development and Democracy - and third, what we call the four R's - Reverse, Reengage, Reconceptualize and Rebuild. That was the plan."

Harold Hongju Koh is Professor of International Law at Yale University. He is an expert in public and private international law, national security law, and human rights. From 2009 to 2013, he served as Legal Adviser of the U.S. Department of State, service for which he received the Secretary of State's Distinguished Service Award. He has also served as U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights and Labor from 1998 to 2001. Professor Koh has received seventeen honorary degrees and more than thirty awards for his human rights work, including awards from Columbia Law School and the American Bar Association for his lifetime achievements in international law. He has authored or co-authored eight books, published more than 200 articles, testified regularly before Congress, and litigated numerous cases involving international law issues in both U.S. and international tribunals. He is a Fellow of the American Philosophical Society and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, an Honorary Fellow of Magdalen College, Oxford, and a member of the Council of the American Law Institute.
