Nicaragua’s Mastery of International Law:

Resisting Domination, Promoting Peaceful Progress


“One of the most enduring legacies of the Sandinista People’s Revolution is Nicaragua’s commitment to the peaceful resolution of disputes and to honoring the rulings of the International Court of Justice. This commitment has acquired a truly national character.”   –Sofia M. Clark

Please join us for this stimulating 75-minute webinar.  Our featured speaker, Sofia M. Clark, explains how Nicaragua uses its legal expertise to challenge the hegemonic designs of both a world superpower (the US) and a regional power (Colombia).  She describes Nicaragua’s contributions in various fields of international law, including:

  • Peaceful defense in cases against the US, Costa Rica, and Colombia

  • Participation in the Sixth (Legal) Committee of the UN General Assembly

  • Active involvement in UN Climate Change negotiations – arguing for binding measures, working to establish the Green Fund

  • Father Miguel d’Escoto’s proposal for reinventing the United Nations

Sofia M. Clark is a Nicaraguan political researcher and analyst, currently at the Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann Center in Managua.  She was Deputy Chief of Staff for her uncle, Fr. Miguel d’Escoto, when he presided over the 63rd session of the United Nations General Assembly.  She also served in three UN field missions and three OAS conflict resolution programs. 

These events are part of a monthly webinar series on Nicaragua.  Additional organizational sponsors are welcome. Contact madeline@afgj.org to sign on.
