Erik Castrén Brown Bag Seminar of Dr. Rotem Giladi

Warm welcome to this Brown Bag seminar by Dr. Rotem Giladi presenting 'No Longer an Object of International Law: The Jewish Yearbook of International Law’, the prologue of his upcoming book on Monday 5th December, at 12:15 in P545 (Porthania, 5th floor).

Paper by request from intlaw-institute@helsinki.fi

Dr. Giladi will present the short prologue of a book he is currently working on. The prologue is titled, provisionally, 'No Longer an Object of International Law: The Jewish Yearbook of International Law’. The book itself examines the transition from pre-1948 Jewish engagement with international law to Israeli diplomacy: it explores how jurists in Israel’s early foreign service - Shabtai Rosenne and Jacob Robinson - approached international law. The essential claim in the book is that they were ideologically ambivalent to international law.
The prologue, enclosed here, tells the story of the preparation, publication, reception, and outlook of the Jewish Yearbook of International Law, whose first issue (and single) was published in 1949.
