Peoples’ Tribunals and International Law  (Edited by Andrew Byrnes and Gabrielle Simm, published by the Cambridge University Press in January 2018) came out earlier this year and will be formally launched in Sydney at UNSW on 15 May 2018 (here are the details and registration).  The event will be available shortly afterwards on the website of the Australian Human Rights Institute, which is hosting the launch.

The invited speaker at the launch is The Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG, a distinguished Australian and international jurist who was a justice of the High Court of Australia. Among his many roles Michael has served as the UN Special Representative for Cambodia, Chair of the International Commission of Jurists and most recently as Chair of the UN Inquiry into human rights in the DPRK. Of special relevance to this launch is that he served as a judge on the session of the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal on Tibet that took place in Strasbourg in 1992.
