Who Has The Power To Withdraw From Treaties?

September 24, 2020
4:45 PM - 5:45 PM

CSIL is proud to host Scott Anderson for an event this Thursday to discuss the legal aspects of U.S. treaty withdrawals.  President Trump has withdrawn from several international agreements and threatened to withdraw from countless more.  Join us as we discuss the interesting legal and constitutional questions that arise, what Congress can do, and how these withdrawals affect global affairs.

Scott Anderson is a Visiting Fellow in Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution, Senior Editor for Lawfare, and a Senior Fellow with the CLS National Security Law Program.  A widely published author, Mr. Anderson previously served as an attorney-advisor at the State Department where he worked on domestic and international legal issues with a focus on the Middle East and North Africa.  He is a graduate of Yale Law School. RSVP here.
