In 2000, world leaders convened at the United Nations Millenium Summit and established the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs). This was an ambitious blueprint for ending extreme poverty by 2015, which included the goals of endign hunger, eradicating HIV and malaria, achieving access to clean and safe water, improving infant mortality and maternal health, attaining equal access to education for boys and girls, and working toward sustainable environmental policies and practices. The MDGs have achieved mixed success and as 2015 approaches, world leaders must set the post-2015 development agenda.
This year’s annual Leonard v.B. Sutton Colloquium in International Law assesses the impact of the MDGs and previews the post-2015 international development agenda. Please join our panels of scholars as they provide a variety of perspectives on the future of international development. Panel topics will include: 1. Energy and International Development; 2. Development and International Law; and 3. Changing Perspectives on Development and the post-Millennium Development Goals.
