On November 8, Professor Kish Parella will present her work in progress, Transcommercial Institutional Legitimacy, to a group of international law scholars at the annual Research Forum of the American Society of International Law. This paper was recently awarded the Lewis Prize for Excellence in Legal Scholarship by the Francis Lewis Center at Washington and Lee School of Law.

Parella’s research focuses on the legitimacy of private governance of international production. She examines dispute resolution between different actors in global value chains and suggests ways to improve stakeholder engagement regarding the design of these dispute resolution mechanisms. This research is part of her broader examination of global governance performed by the transnational business sector.

Parella will present her research as part of a panel on regulation of international economic activity. Her co-panelists are Professors Stavros Gadinis (Berkeley Law) and Odette Lienau (Cornell Law). Professor Jose Alvarez from New York University School of Law will serve as discussant for the panel.
