Siobhan Davis - Blog Post 2: Merrymaking

Post type: 
Blog post

For this next blog, I have chosen to write about some of my experiences with my unaccompanied minor students, who have grown to become some of my closest friends. The event I will be discussing pertains to a dinner I had at my house a few weeks ago, and how I feel this can contribute to my Capstone Project as well as improving relations and understandings between 'foreign' people with 'different' values and traditions.

Thanks for reading and I welcome any feedback!

Ben Lawrence - Blog 1: Singapore - Constitutionalism from Above or Below

Post type: 
Blog post

In this blog, I discuss a recent paper, reviewing Kevin YL Tan's The Constitution of Singapore for the Australian Journal of Asian Law. In the process, I explain how the act of reviewing a book about a constitutional system that I am less familiar with actually helped me to reflect upon, and clarify, my own approach to working on constitutional law. Hence, I also use this blog as an opportunity to introduce readers to some of the methodological commitments that underly my own research.

Yasmine El-Hamamsy - Blog 3: Creating Opportunity

Post type: 
Blog post

My previous blog posts have been a relatively narrow, and almost simplified, discussion of the status of illegality that an individual might be subjected to. In this, I have critiqued the national and international systems in place that work against individuals who are displaced or seeking refuge, and inhibit them from accessing certain rights, freedoms, and opportunities. Sidelined in my own discussion, though, are the ways that people are actively working against this system.
