A think-tank’s new focus on international law offers the perfect combination of action and reflection for Oonagh Fitzgerald, named director of the International Law Research Program at the Waterloo, Ont.-based Centre for International Governance Innovation. 
Fitzgerald, who joins CIGI after a high-profile career in the Canadian government, says her first priority will be to set clear guidelines for the new program, which is designed to expand the scope of international law, especially as it relates to business and financial issues, as well as to build up a team of scholars, legal experts, and students.

“There’s a lot we can do,” she says.
