My name is Nahuel Maisley, I study Law and Political Science at the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina). In 2010 and 2011 I represented my Law School at the international rounds of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. In 2010 and 2011 I received research scholarships from UBA-Law School and UBA, respectively, to research on issues of international law and political theory. In Spring 2012, I studied for a semester at Columbia Law School, with a scholarship from the Student Exchange Program of the UBA-Law School. I currently work at the Research Office of UBA-Law School.

I'm interested in international law and political theory, particularly in issues related with the democratic legitimacy of international law.

The Individual & the Collective, Politics, & the UN, with Jean-Marie Guéhenno

Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Jean-Marie Guéhenno, former head of United Nations peacekeeping operations, discusses the tensions between the individual and the collective in a world filled with political tension, pervasive surveillance, and fear of risk. What is the role of the UN in this environment? How can we avoid the violent upheavals that marked other transitional phases in humanity?

A Russian Take on the Kurds and U.S. Foreign Policy

A Russian defense news site declared the United States an "unreliable ally" after the the withdrawal of American troops from Northern Syria. Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev connects this characterization to the need for leaders to connect a specific policy action to a larger, understandable narrative for the American public.
