O'Neill Institute Summer Program – Speakers

By | Leave a Comment

FINAL-2013-Brochure_Page_1The O’Neill Institute 2013 Summer Program is just around the corner. We are thrilled to announce our exciting guest lecturers for this year’s program on non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and the law. The list of lecturers is below.

About the Summer Program

As global efforts to address non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are accelerating, complexity is increasing and the importance of law is becoming more apparent. Understanding the powers, duties and constraints created by law is now essential not only for lawyers, but also for officials and advocates working on NCDs.

The O’Neill Institute Summer Program on NCDs and the Law will take a global approach to the issues, while also drawing upon case studies from domestic law. Participants will enhance their understanding of the global burden of NCDs, contemporary developments at the international level, international instruments governing NCDs, best practice regulation, the intersection of human rights and NCDs and the intersection of trade, investment and NCDs.
