    Recent actions by the Trump administration raise many unresolved legal issues.

Plans to withdraw the US from or renegotiate NAFTA and introduce a border adjustment tax affect international trade law. US compliance with multilateral treaties and its participation in international organization will be tested by proposals to exit or ignore legal commitments ranging from NATO, to the Paris Agreement on climate change, to the Iran nuclear deal. Professors Brewster, Helfer and Huckerby will give an overview over these and other international law issues implicated by the Trump administration's policies.

  • Feb 10 May a Government Mandate More Extensive Health Insurance than Citizens Want for Themselves? 3:30 PMWest Duke 204

    Alex Voorhoeve, from the Philosophy Department of the London School of Economics and Bioethics Department of NIH will discuss his paper, "May a Government Mandate more Extensive Health Insurance than Citizens Want for Themselves?" He critically examines a common liberal egalitarian view about the justification for, and proper content of, mandatory health insurance. This view holds that a mandate is justified because it is the best way to ensure that those in poor health are insured on equitable terms. It also holds that a government should mandate what a representative prudent individual would purchase for themselves if they were placed in fair conditions of choice. He argues that this common justification for a mandate is incomplete. A further reason for mandated insurance is that it helps secure social egalitarian public goods that would be underprovided if insurance were optional. I also argue that rather than mandating what a representative individual would choose for themselves, we should design the mandatory package by appealing to a pluralistic egalitarian view, which cares about improving people's well-being, reducing unfair inequality, and maintaining egalitarian social relations.
