What are the prospects for peace in Ukraine? Can our international institutions – like the United Nations and International Criminal Court (ICC) – do anything to resolve the conflict? With clear human rights violations taking place, how can violators be held accountable? Are sanctions working? Professor of Law at the University of Waikato, New Zealand, Dr Alexander Gillespie and Associate Professor of International Relations at San Francisco State University in the United States, and Culturico’s own international relations editor, Dr Anthony Pahnke, discuss these themes and others on Culturico’s latest podcast. Dr Gillespie brings years of expertise to the subject, having authored nineteen books in law and politics, and being the first New Zealander to be named Rapporteur for the World Heritage Convention, involving international environmental diplomacy under the auspice of UNESCO. Dr Pahnke has authored numerous articles and two books, focusing on development policy, social movements, and trade.
