The New Books Panel features eight authors whose books are described in the attached.  The format will include short descriptions of each book, followed by a curated conversation constructed around questions sent to the authors in advance. These questions will include:

  • What was the original motivation for this project? How did the focus of the project change over time?
  • What proved to be the major challenges in bringing the project to completion as a book?
  • Taking a retrospective view, what is most important intervention the book makes? Was this the intervention you understood yourself to be making when undertaking the research?
  • Which audience / audiences would you most like to engage with this research? Has it been received by an audience or in a way that you didn’t anticipate?
  • What subsequent questions did this research lead you toward? How does your current research pick up or depart from the conclusions reached in the book?

The selected books comprise: Treasa Dunworth, Humanitarian Disarmament: An Historical Enquiry (CUP, 2019); Alison Duxbury and Hsien-Li Tan, Can ASEAN Take Human Rights Seriously? (CUP, 2019); Lucas Lixinski, International Heritage Law for Communities: Exclusion and Re-Imagination (OUP, 2019); Simon McKenzie, Disputed Territories and International Criminal Law (Routledge, 2019); Tamsin Phillipa Paige, Petulant and Contrary: Approaches by the Permanent Five Members of the UN Security Council to the Concept of ‘Threat To The Peace’ under Article 39 of the UN Charter (Brill/Nijhoff, 2019); Cait Storr, International Status in the Shadow of Empire: Nauru and the Histories of International Law (CUP, 2020) and  Ntina Tzouvala, Capitalism As Civilisation: A History of International Law (CUP, 2020).
