This week and next we will be hosting a discussion of Russell Buchan’s book International Law and the Construction of the Liberal Peace, recently published by Hart. The book was awarded the 2014 Lieber Prize by the American Society of International Law for an outstanding monograph in the field of the law of armed conflict.
Dr Russell Buchan is a senior lecturer in international law at the University of Sheffield. He has published in leading academic journals in the field of public international law, with a focus on collective security, international humanitarian law and cyber security. Dr Buchan sits on the editorial board of the Journal of the Use of Force in International Law and the International Community Law Review. Dr Buchan is Co-Rapporteur for the International Law Association’s Study Group on Cybersecurity, Terrorism and International Law.
Russell’s book will be discussed, next week, by Brad Roth, Jean d’Aspremont, and Greg Fox. Tomorrow, Russell will start the discussion off with an introduction, and will conclude it next week with a response to the three discussants. We are grateful to all of them for their participation.
