Better Place: Talking International Law

Better Place: Talking International Law

26 November 2018


Better Place is an interview series with international law practitioners from around Australia and the world.

Hosted by Jonathan Kolieb of RMIT University, the interviews seek to demystify what international law is all about and what drives people to pursue and sustain careers in international law. International law is increasingly relevant to every facet of life, work and society in our globalised world. These are the people that create, support, engage, enforce and work with international law… the people that “do” international law.  

Thank you to RMIT University for supporting this project. Thank you to the guests whose generosity of time and spirit make this series possible. The Better Place series is also available as a series of video interviews on Youtube.
