Dan Danielsen3.25.19 — Professor Dan Danielsen will speak at the United Nations New York headquarters tomorrow as an invited panelist for the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law’s (UNCITRAL). Danielsen will participate in the closing panel of a two-day colloquium focused contractual networks and other forms of inter-firm cooperation, including the relevance of contractual networks to UNCITRAL work on developing an enabling legal environment for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs). Danielsen, an expert in global supply chains and economic development, will discuss whether states would benefit from a uniform instrument facilitating cooperation among MSMEs. 

“For several years I’ve been working on how to improve development and human rights outcomes in global supply chains both through research and advocacy. As a scholar it is extremely gratifying to find my research generating interest in such a significant forum for international cooperation and policy making on these issues,” said Danielsen. “This colloquium promises to be the beginning of a new conversation of crucial importance to small and medium sized enterprises and workers across the developing world.”

Prior to joining the Northeastern Law faculty, Danielsen spent many years as an international business lawyer. He teaches Corporations, Law and Development, International Business Regulation, International Law and Conflict of Laws. His research explores the complex role of the business firm in global governance. He is also faculty director of the Program on the Corporation, Law and Global Society, which fosters interdisciplinary research and discussion among scholars, policymakers and advocates to examine the corporation as an institutional form with social significance akin to the state, the family or the city.
