Welcome to An International Law Blog! This is a new discussion forum conceived by Giulia Pecorella, a PhD candidate at Middlesex University, and set up together with a group of PhD students and young scholars. It aims to provide students, junior academics and lawyers with a platform to present their ideas and discuss issues related to international, transnational, European and comparative law and policy.

The Blog team currently comprises doctoral students and junior academics with diverse specialisations and at different stages of their careers. While some contributors are seasoned bloggers and authors, for others this is a completely new experience. Through this mixed team we hope to present fresh, thought-provoking perspectives on various aspects of law and policy. We aim to publish a post every Monday and look forward to your contributions to the discussions raised and to any feedback you may have.ECtHR
