Book launch by Professor Simon Bronitt, Head of School and Dean of Sydney Law School, University of Sydney
In the past twenty years, international criminal law has become one of the main areas of international legal scholarship and practice. The Oxford Handbook of International Criminal Law takes a theoretically informed and refreshingly critical look at the most controversial issues in international criminal law, challenging prevailing practices, orthodoxies, and received wisdoms. Some of the contributions to the Handbook come from scholars within the field, but many come from outside of international criminal law, or indeed from outside law itself. The chapters are grounded in history, geography, philosophy, and international relations. The result is a Handbook that expands the discipline and should fundamentally alter how international criminal law is understood.
The launch will be chaired by Professor Sally Wheeler OBE, MRIA, FAcSS, FAAL, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for International Strategy and Dean of ANU College of Law. Following the launch by Professor Simon Bronitt, there will be a round table with one of the book's editors, Professor Kevin Jon Heller, and two of the book's contributors, Dr Edwin Bikundo and Associate Professor Doug Guilfoyle.
Light refreshments will be served from 5.30pm.
