Terrorism, War and International Law

"There are two fundamental themes in this important book: firstly, the relevance of the history of international law and its function in understanding contemporary international relations and secondly, the consciousness of the necessity of multilateral use of force in response to a terrorist attack as a crime against humanity."

Ten PhD candidates and early-stage researchers were selected from 83 applicants. I was the only presenter from Australasia. I gave a Powerpoint presentation based on my paper, entitled: "The Meaning of 'Terrorism': From Cicero, St Augustine and the Pirate to the United Nations Draft Convention" I presented my paper in the context of a workshop on terrorism and international law which was chaired by Professor Flavia Lattanzi; the Co-Discussant was Professor Gustavo Gozzi. My paper has been published online by the Giangiacomo Feltrinelli Foundation.

"When dealing with a legal matter - always remember that you are your own best advocate. No one will care as much about the case as you do. Use lawyers but remember - you must take primary responsibility for a successful outcome.



Post-Graduate Certificate in Tertiary Teaching (PGCertTT): I have completed one of two papers towards this qualification at the University of Waikato in 2009.  This is an optional, post-graduate qualification in tertiary teaching that aims to assist lecturers with the improvement of their teaching performance by allowing them to engage with the most recent research on teaching as well as having the benefits of teaching mentors. I have one paper to complete in order to complete this qualification.

I attended the International Conference on Teaching and Learning as Tools of Progress in Higher Education 2011 held in Riyadh on 16-17 January 2011.
