There's room for optimism. After my previous posts here and here on Black Women who teach international, comparative, foreign relations, or immigration/refugee/asylum law, the names kept rolling in. This is great news for the legal academy and, one hopes, a promise of more to come.
The gender, race, and cultural diversity we see when doors once closed begin to open produces many benefits. Given the state of global affairs, we need the expertise and perspectives of talented women and men of all colors to work on the pedagogy, critical analysis, practical implementation, and progressive development of international and transnational law as much as we ever did. Here's Part III.
