At a lunchtime seminar on 23rd March Professor Boisson de Chazournes of the University of Geneva’s Faculty of Law presented her research on the need for an increase in the level of interaction between regional and universal organisations. Beginning with an overview of the predecessor to the United Nations that we recognise today—the League of Nations— she outlined the tensions that often arise between the regional and universal spheres and novel means of cooperation that have hitherto been out of reach, particularly with respect to the attribution of responsibility, in regional and universal organisations.
