A passion for the rule of law: In conversation with Martin Krygier

Martin Krygier, John Braithwaite, Nick Cheesman, Philip Pettit, Veronica Taylor

Martin Krygier is one of the world’s foremost thinkers and communicators on the rule of law today. His writing and speaking on it has inspired and motivated scholars working on the topic from Australia to Europe and the Americas. In 2019, 36 of those scholars penned essays in honour of Krygier, published as a special issue of the Hague Journal on the Rule of Law (11.2-3). This webinar will bring Krygier together with four of the essay contributors to discuss how and why he became a rule-of-law guy, address some of the contentions in the essays, and take questions about why he is still so passionate when it comes to the ideal of the rule of law.

Navigating conflicting mandates and interests in the governance of the commercial determinants of health: The case of tobacco in Fiji and Vanuatu

Dori Patay

The regulation of unhealthy commodities, such as tobacco, alcohol, and unhealthy foods and beverages requires the engagement of multiple government sectors to tackle noncommunicable diseases. However, the mandates of trade, industry, agricultural, and economic sectors do not always align with public health goals and such conflicts can be aggravated by the interests and influence of unhealthy commodity industries. Pacific Small Island Developing States face particular difficulties in negotiating such governance dilemma due to vulnerabilities arising from their size, geographic isolation, and low- and middle-income economies. This webinar will analyse tobacco control in Fiji and Vanuatu and shed light on the interests, ideas, and institutions which shape the ways such countries govern the commercial determinants of health.
