The Legal Contours of Cold War II
Please join Professor Mamlyuk on Monday, April 14 at 3:45 in Room 326 for a substantive
discussion of the underlying foreign policy/international law issues raised by the
Ukraine crisis, and ensuing fallout.
According to senior U.S. policymakers and senior analysts in the ‘West’ and ‘Russia,’
a new Cold War has started. The origins of Cold War II are many, but simplified greatly,
the rub appears to be alleged U.S. support for ‘regime change’ in Ukraine, and Russia’s
annexation of a strategically important peninsula in the northern Black Sea, Crimea.
This presentation will explore the significance of the new Cold War, including implications
for U.S. foreign and domestic policy.
