The Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics invites you to join them for a celebration of Michael Fakhri’s new book, Sugar and the Making of International Trade Law. This book traces the changing meanings of free trade over the past century through three sugar treaties (one in Cuba) and their concomitant institutions. It highlights how the line between the state and market, domestic and international, and public and private is always a matter of contest.

Michael Fakhri is an assistant professor at the University of Oregon School of Law and a 2011-12 Wayne Morse Resident Scholar. His research and teaching interests are in international trade law, trade and development in the Middle East, and international legal history.

Remarks by Fakhri and Ibrahim Gassama will be followed by a book signing and reception.
