Wilkie Referral to ICCLast week, independent MP, Andrew Wilkie, asked the ICC to launch an investigation into whether Australia’s immigration detention policies constitute crimes against humanity under the Rome Statute.

Regarding Rights contributor and former CIGJ visitor, Rosemary Grey considers the implications of the referral in this post for Beyond the Hague.

In less sombre news, we’re thrilled to congratulate another RR contributor and CIGJ visitor, Anita Mackay, on the submission of her PhD thesis and the release of a new book! Anita is co-editor with Bronwyn Naylor and Julie Debeljak of Human Rights in Closed Environments (Federation Press, 2014). The book will be launched by Professor Gillian Triggs, President of the Australian Human Rights Commission, at 5.30pm on Tuesday 25 November 2014 in Melbourne.
