Dr Amanda Alexander challenges history of International Law
Published: Monday 4th May 2015
Dr Amanda Alexander, Lecturer in the Thomas More Academy of Law, has recently been published in the European Journal of International Law, one of the world’s leading journals in the field.
Amanda’s article A Short History of International Law challenges conventional histories of international humanitarian law, demonstrating instead that the term international human law first appeared in the 1970s, making it a relatively new field that has been created and shaped by a variety of actors.
She is Lecturer in Charge for Criminal Law and Procedure in the Thomas More Academy of Law at North Sydney. Amanda completed a PhD on the topic of ‘The Civilian in International Law’ and a Master of Laws at University College London.
Amanda’s article is featured in the European Journal of International Law (2015) 26 (1):109-138. The abstract can be viewed here.
