This episode of EJIL: Live! introduces EJIL’s new joint Editor-in-Chief, Dr Sarah Nouwen. Currently a University Senior Lecturer at the University of Cambridge and recently appointed as Professor of International Law at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy (starting September 2020), Dr Nouwen speaks with Professor Joseph Weiler about her own academic trajectory, her research interests and her approach to teaching. The conversation then moves on to a reflection on the state of research and the study of international law – its challenges, problems and promises. Finally, Dr Nouwen shares her thoughts and ideas for the future of EJIL and offers some advice for young scholars. The interview was recorded at the IE Law School in Madrid.
