Dr Gavin Sullivan to discuss ‘The Law of the List’ at LCIL Friday Lecture
Dr Gavin Sullivan, a Reader in International Human Rights Law at Edinburgh Law School, will give insight into his recently published book – ‘The Law of the List: UN Counterterrorism Sanctions and the Politics of Global Security Law’ at a webinar hosted by the University of Cambridge as part of the Lauterpacht Centre Friday lecture series. The event will take place on Friday 5 February 2021, from 13:00 GMT.
During this upcoming webinar, the findings of Sullivan’s publication will be discussed and explored – empirically following the UN Al Qaeda and ISIL terrorism list and proposing a ‘praxiographic’ approach to global security law that ethnographically studies practices in ‘structure-making sites’ (Latour 2005). Dr Sullivan will show how Science and Technology Studies (STS) and socio-legal studies can offer valuable insights into how international law, international organisations and global governance are transforming in response to transboundary threats and new opportunities for global data harvesting.
