Event description

Description

Join a group of 20-25 CIPL members at a monthly brown bag (BYO) lunch to hear short presentations by specialists on recent developments in international law, followed by general discussion.

This seminar will present initial findings from a 5-year Australian Research Council Discovery Project on why and when non-permanent Security Council members have succeeded in influencing the Council’s decision-making process, despite lacking the veto power.

Dr Jeremy Farrall is Associate Dean (Research) at the ANU College of Law and Associate Professor in the ANU Law School. He also holds appointments as Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Tasmania Faculty of Law and Convenor of the Academic Network of the United Nations Association of Australia.

Jeremy previously worked for the United Nations in a range of capacities, serving as a Political Affairs Officer both for the UN Security Council at UN Headquarters in New York (2001–04), for the UN Peacekeeping Mission in Liberia (2004–06), and as UN Facilitator for the UN Secretary-General’s Good Offices team that mediated peace talks in Cyprus (2004, 2008).

His most recent book is Strengthening the Rule of Law through the UN Security Council (Routledge, 2016, co-edited with Hilary Charlesworth). In 2016 the UN Security Council published his Policy Proposals for Strengthening the Rule of Law through the UN Security Council, co-authored with Hilary Charlesworth and Alan Ryan, as an official Council document under the symbol: S/2016/397.
