Dr Azaria’s latest article inspires blog symposium among key stakeholders and interviews
7 October 2021
The article inspired a blog symposium with comments and essays by key stakeholders and legal academics published on Völkerrechtsblog.
In February 2021, Dr Danae Azaria’s article, ‘‘Codification by Interpretation’: The International Law Commission as an Interpreter of International Law, published in the European Journal of International Law (during Dr Azaria’s maternity leave), inspired a blog symposium with comments and essays by key stakeholders (ILC Members and government legal advisors) and academics, including United Nations ILC Special Rapporteur Dr Marja Lehto (here), Mexico’s Legal Advisor Alejandro Celorio Alcántara (here) and Professor Richard Gardiner (here).
Access the full symposium on the Völkerrechtsblog website.
Dr Azaria’s research has also attracted and created a community of learners (beyond UCL) about the modern role of the United Nations International Law Commission. More specifically, Dr Azaria has been invited to be interviewed about this particular article in the major international law student-led Jus Cogens Blog (interview in podcast format forthcoming on the blog’s site). In the interview, she further reflects on her work on the function of the United Nations International Law Commission.
