International Law

The International Legal Studies Research Group (ILSRG) supports research that examines and theorizes international and transnational legal engagement and interactions; the architecture, jurisprudence and practice of international laws. Our members also analyse the way international laws operate in society and how they are shaped by certain social, historical, cultural, political and economic contexts.

Areas of particular interest are:

  • Comparative law (including the relationship between global and local law)
  • History of international law
  • International commercial law (including Islamic banking and financial)
  • International criminal law and justice
  • International environmental law
  • International human rights and refugee law
  • International peace and conflict resolution


Membership is open to all academics and higher degree by research students.
