Francis A. Boyle recommending "Terrorism, War and International Law"

'With the threatened military escalation into Afghanistan by the Obama administration, this book is required reading for all concerned government officials, international civil servants, foreign affairs and defense experts, professors of international law and politics, and citizens of the NATO states who want to stop and then reverse this war of aggression.'

Francis A. Boyle, University of Illinois, Champaign, USA




  Havel, cited in Rowland:

“The intellectual should constantly disturb, should bear witness to the misery of the world, should be provocative by being independent, should rebel against all hidden and open pressure and manipulations, should be the chief doubter of systems, of power and its incantations, should be a witness to their mendacity”

  • Conferences invited to but did not attend

  • I was invited to present a paper on women and human rights in Qom, Iran from 13-14 May 2009, a paper on the use of force in international law in Athens, Greece in July 2009 and a paper on water rights and international law in Jericho, Palestine in April 2009.
