Mamolea Discusses Work of Vespasian Pella During CSE Webinar

On April 7, 2021, the Center for the Study of Europe (CSE), an affiliated center of the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, hosted a lecture during which Andrei Mamolea, Assistant Professor of International Relations at the Pardee School, the life and work of Vespasian V. Pella. 

An early twentieth century Romanian jurist, Pella conceived and championed a system of international criminal justice that was designed to prevent war, punish atrocity, and vindicate humanity’s political and economic rights. Mamolea has extensively researched the ideas, people, and events that shaped the politics of Pella, and during this event he delves into these points in great detail.

Francine Hirsch, Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor of History, University of Wisconsin–Madison, and Vlad Perju, Professor of Law and Director of the Clough Center for the Study of Constitutional Democracy, Boston College, provided comments.

The mission of the Center for the Study of Europe is to promote understanding of Europe through its cultural heritage; its political, economic, and religious histories; its art, literature, music, and philosophy; as well as through its recent emergence as a new kind of international form through the European Union (EU). Operationally, the center provides a focal point and institutional support for the study of Europe across Boston University through coordination of teaching missions, support of research, community-building among faculty and students, and outreach beyond the University.
