Katherine Tai Nominated as United States Trade Representative
We congratulate Katherine Tai for being nominated as the United States Trade Representative. She previously served as the Chief Trade Counsel at the U.S. House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee. In October, she participated in CAROLA's webinar on The New Labor Regime under USMCA. See below for more details.
Interested in what Ms. Tai had to say about the USMCA and trade law? Check out the webinar where we hosted her and three other leaders in trade for the Fall Series.
CAROLA launched its first roundtable series with distinguished alumni from the Dominican Republic. Dean Treanor led a discussion on how to advance the rule of law and social justice in the Americas.
Is the Rule of Law Declining and Corruption Rising Everywhere?
Consistent recent trends demonstrate an erosion to democratic systems of governance at the global and national levels coupled with an exacerbation of social inequalities brought about by a pandemic and a decline in the rule of law. Societies with a strong rule of law have built-in mechanisms for mediating conflicts through different tools, systems and practices that are perceived as fair and reasonable. The correlation is direct: societies with a strong rule of law are more successful, inclusive, and sustainable.
The ABA's Women in the Law event brought together rule of law leaders, including CAROLA's Executive Director Lelia Mooney, together to discuss what rule of law safeguards need to be strengthened to sustain anti-corruption measures and their enforcement both at the international and national levels.
