WELCOME to our first edition of ANZSIL Perspective for 2022. It is a bumper edition with two fascinating articles on universal jurisdiction by Kiran Menon and Dr Melinda Rankin, and an instructive book review by Monique Cormier.
As Russia launches a military invasion of Ukraine and Ukraine has issued proceedings at the ICJ, now more than ever the spreading of expert knowledge of international law becomes vital and we hope we can encourage our members and readers to contribute to our next edition.
As ever, I look forward to receiving submissions from a diverse range of scholars who have previously contributed to ANZSIL Perspective, and welcoming new and emerging authors at every level of postgraduate scholarship and legal practice.
Felicity Gerry QC (Editor)
The deadline for the next ANZSIL Perspective is 18 April 2022. The current call for Perspectives and submission details and guidelines are on the ANZSIL Perspective webpage. The views expressed in contributions to ANZSIL Perspective are those of the authors. Those views are not necessarily shared by ANZSIL or the Editors of Perspective.
