Seminar: International Law's Common Humanity, or, Are Pirates Necessary?
- Full Description:
- The third speaker in the teh POLSIS Research Seminar Series is Professor Gerry Simpson from The University of Melbourne
Abstract - The idea of a humanity, against which crimes can be committed and in the name of whom these crimes can be punished, occupies an equivocal place in the history of international law. Provoked in part by Raimond Gaita’s reflections on Nuremberg and Eichmann in his essay “Genocide and the Holocaust” and in part by a reading of some early modernist literature, this paper offers a brief anatomy of humanity in its various (juridical) guises.
