Last night I gave the London Review of International Law annual lecture at SOAS. The title was ‘Legal Terrain’, and I added a subtitle ‘The Political Materiality of Territory’. Many thanks to all who attended, especially those whose journeys were difficult as a result of the storm. There were some good questions from the floor, and these continued over a nice dinner. Thanks to the journal board for the invitation, to Matthew Craven for chairing the lecture and his generous introduction, and to OUP for hosting the event and dinner.
The lecture will be written up and the plan is for it to appear in the journal, perhaps later this year. It was also videoed, and I will share the link when available. I’ll also be speaking about this terrain work in Oslo, Maynooth, Amsterdam, and Stockholm over the coming months.
