"WJulia Wykofforking with Professor Buys on this article made me realize how lucky SIU students are to have opportunities to engage in out-of-class activities with our professors. I believe SIU is truly unique in this regard, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to write an article on real-world issues with scholars in the international law community. Professor Buys and the entire faculty at SIU go above and beyond to see their students succeed."

"MChad Zoelzery work on this article allowed to me to apply the knowledge and skills I learned in Professor Buys’ International law course and analyze how the United Nations aims to create international resolutions that help solve global conflicts. This article opened my eyes to the many problems and struggles facing people throughout the world. In learning about the many issues facing the United Nations in 2013, I gained perspective about how fortunate all of the students here at SIU are in gaining a legal education and working with excellent faculty."
