I&C Lecture – Dr Djacoba Tehindrazanarivelo

We were elated to host Dr. Djacoba Tehindrazanarivelo, Madagascar’s Former Minister of Foreign Affairs, as our special guest speaker in our Emerging Issues Seminar Series for the Spring 2022 semester. Discussing the topic of “Developing countries and the principle of sovereign equality of states” was held at a significant time when the norms and values of international law are violated again, with Russia committing the crime of aggression against Ukraine. The discussion was centered on the principle of sovereign equality of states which entails that all states, regardless of their size and strength, regardless of the nature of their social, political, and economic structures and regardless of their level of development, have equal status in international law.
