|Free Foreign Policy Lecture with Associate Professor Tetsuya Toyoda : "Law against justice over the Island disputes in East Asia - Why can't governments negotiate"
Mr Tetsuya Toyoda is the Deputy Director and Associate Professor of the Institute for Asian Studies and Regional Collaboration at Akita International University (AIU) in Japan. He has taught International Law and International Organisations at AIU since 2007. Mr Toyoda was a project researcher at the University of Tokyo (2006-2007) and an official of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (1994-2000). He graduated from the University of Tokyo and obtained his Diplôme d'études approfondies from the University of Paris II-Panthéon-Assas in France. Mr Toyoda has also written a book on Theory and Politics of the Law of Nations, The Hague: Martinus Nijhoff, 2011.
With the rise of nationalism in East Asia, the disputes over those islands have become serious impediments to regional cooperation. One reason comes from the fact that the rules of modern international law for territorial demarcation do not fit the sense of justice of the peoples in East Asia.
Please join us for what is to be a very insightful presentation.
