London Review of International Law annual lecture 2017

I will be giving the London Review of International Law annual lecture in 2017. As the invitation said:

Just to put this in some kind of context, the previous Annual Lectures have been delivered by Judith Butler (‘Human Shields’), Sheila Jasanoff (‘Subjects of Reason: Goods, Markets and Imaginaries of the Global Future’) and Gerry Simpson (‘The Sentimental Life of International Law’).

No pressure then… The lecture will be given in London sometime early in 2017, probably late April. Further details when they are fixed. The intention is that the lecture later appears in the journal. Given that this is probably over a year away, I’m not entirely sure what the topic will be, but expect that it will be on the relation between law, territory and terrain – a topic that I will be exploring with colleagues at Durham and elsewhere as part of the ICE-LAW Project (Project on Indeterminate and Changing Environments: Law, the Anthropocene, and the World –, funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
