Prof. Fernando Tesón Guest-Blogging:

I'm delighted to say that Prof. Fernando R. Tesón, the Tobias Simon Eminent Scholar at Florida State University College of Law, will be guest-blogging this week on the problem of deliberative failure in modern democracies.

Prof. Tesón is, among other things, the author of Humanitarian Intervention; An Inquiry into Law and Morality (3rd ed. 2005), coauthor with Guido Pincione of Rational Choice and Democratic Deliberation: A Theory of Discourse Failure (2006), and one of the few libertarianish international law / foreign relations scholars in the American legal academy.
