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.

Ethics & the U.S.-China Trade War, with Nikolas Gvosdev

What role should ethics play in the U.S.-China trade war? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev looks at these economic tensions in the context of the Uyghur detention and the Hong Kong protests, different theories on integrating China into the world economy, and what it could mean to "lose" in this conflict. Is there a breaking point in terms of China's human rights policies? What's the view in Africa and Europe?
