Professor Winston Nagan, Samuel T. Dell Research Scholar, was a key speaker in December at a United Nations Symposium, “The Rule of Law in the Global Village – Issues of Sovereignty and Universality.” The symposium was held in Palermo, Italy, along with a four-day high level Political Signing Conference for the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime. Nagan spoke on “The Rule of Law – Lofty Idea and Harsh Reality.” He explained that because globalization has overcome differences and borders, transnational crime must be handled with a supra-national policy. This conference marked a significant step toward greater international cooperation to prevent, control and punish crimes originating from across borders. Nagan is a native of South Africa, and has twice chaired Amnesty International, U.S.A. His research focuses on conflict of laws, international law and human rights. This term, he is teaching International Law and a seminar on Ethnic Conflict
