Political science’s Kathryn Lavelle presents virtually to Academic Council on the United Nations System

Kathryn C. Lavelle, the Ellen and Dixon Long Professor in World Affairs, presented a paper for the annual meeting of the Academic Council on the United Nations System in June. Originally planned to be held in London, the conference was changed to a virtual format due to the pandemic. 

In the paper, titled “A New Century, A New Multilateral Order: Dissent on the Globalization Project in Industrial Democracies,” Lavelle reviewed the rise of populism in advanced, industrial democracies and the gradual erosion of support for international organizations since the 1970s.
