Editorial: September 2021

Welcome to the SEPTEMBER 2021 issue of ANZSIL Perspective.

As we continue to battle with lockdown and the spread of the Delta Variant to COVID-19, I am delighted to present two excellent Perspectives on international frameworks for structural change in North Korea and a potential solution to global deforestation.

The recent 20th anniversary of the 11 September 2001 attacks in the United States once again brings a spotlight on the importance of international law – not only in relation to responding to the attacks themselves but also to the myriad of events to which those attacks gave rise over the ensuing two decades. In that regard, the events of the last few weeks are not a cause for optimism in relation to the application of human rights to the people of Afghanistan, particularly those of women.

As always, we at ANZSIL Perspective are keen to encourage articles and book reviews on international law issues from a diverse range of authors at every level of post graduate experience.

As our readers know, we have a small editorial team but we pride ourselves on the conscientious and encouraging approach we try to take on the submissons we receive. To read about our editorial team click here.

The deadline for the next ANZSIL Perspective is 8 October 2021. 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.
