Some argue that U.S. foreign affairs should be left to Congress and the President. But as more executive and legislative actions arise in this arena, is a judicial defense of fundamental rights needed? 

Restoring the Global Judiciary: Why the Supreme Court Should Rule in U.S. Foreign Affairs,” turns old arguments on their head, making the case for a stronger judiciary role in U.S. foreign policy. The book was penned by Martin Flaherty, a long-time visiting professor at Princeton’s Wilson School and a professor at Fordham Law School, who joins us in this episode.
