Gavin Sullivan’s recent book The Law of the List: UN Counterterrorism Sanctions and the Politics of Global Security Law (Cambridge University Press, 2020) was awarded two prestigious book prizes at the 2021 International Studies Association (ISA) convention in Las Vegas, USA.

The book won the 2021 STAIR Book Award for innovative research bringing Science and Technology Studies (STS) together into dialogue with studies of global politics. In their comments, the Committee said: ‘The Law of the List is a substantial contribution to the fields of IR and international law. The book also demonstrates to mainstream STS scholars how IR can offer both an important site of inquiry, and an orientation towards questions of sovereignty and order’. The book also won the 2021 ILAW Book Award for research that makes an outstanding contribution to the field of international law. Watchlisting infrastructures and how they intersect with algorithmic decision-making processes continue to be a key empirical focus of the infra-Legalities project.
