In this episode, Bashar Malkawi, Global Professor of Practice in Law at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, discusses his work on national security and international trade. He begins by explaining why national security exception to international trade agreements can be a problem, especially national boycotts. He claims that the arguments in favor of broad boycotts are unconvincing and that they should be avoided. And he reflects on how international organizations can discourage boycotts and other trade restrictions. Malkawi's article "Economic Boycotts: The Interaction of National Security and International Economic Law" is forthcoming in the Academy of Legal Studies in Business National Proceedings (2021).
