This Research Paper Series is published on behalf of the SOAS School of Law, University of London. It is designed to reflect the School’s diverse research interests and to encourage interest in all aspects of the laws of Africa, Asia and the Middle East; special emphasis is placed on comparative law, environmental law, human rights, international commercial & corporate law, public international law and socio-legal method.
