To explore the intersections between the threats posed by new public health challenges and new theories of governance, in March 2004 Temple Law School's Institute for International Law and Public Policy hosted a meeting on SARS, Public Health and Global Governance. The meeting involved leading public health scholars; international legal experts; students of global governance; current and former government officials; and activists from the U.S. and abroad to engage in a sustained dialogue on these issues. This Symposium issue of the Temple Law Review includes articles based on the papers, and comments on the papers, presented at the meeting:
