This month, Dr. Mandel was asked to speak for “Constituting America” about American Treaties, International Agreements, and the Constitution.

He came to their attention because of his articles in The Hill about the JCPOA (Iran nuclear agreement), where he argued that constitutionally, it should have been submitted to the Senate as a treaty. 

In this video, you will learn:

  • The difference between an international agreement, executive action, and a treaty
  • When the Constitution requires an international agreement to be submitted to the Senate as a treaty
  • Why the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) should have been submitted to the Senate 
  • What the North Atlantic Treaty has to say about today’s Russian invasion of Ukraine 

As always, please share your thoughts.
