Dr. Samuel will introduce the audience to the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation and will describe how it is challenging the universality of international human rights law, including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. She will also touch on some of the wider international peace and security implications of these trends. Dr. Samuel will incorporate ideas from her book entitled The OIC, the UN, and Counter-Terrorism Law-Making: Conflicting or Cooperative Legal Orders? (October 2013).
