We are very happy to bring you Issue 02 of the TWAIL Review. This Issue opens with articles from E. Tendayi Achiume & Tamara Last on decolonial approaches to migration in southern Africa; Fernanda Frizzo Bragato & Alex Sandro da Silveira Filho on the colonial logics that limit transnational corporate accountability; and Dorothy Makaza-Goede with a critical analysis of compliance and immunity in international criminal law. The remainder of this Issue is made up of a special feature on ‘The League of Nations Decentred’, introduced by Kathryn Greenman & Ntina Tzouvala, and featuring articles from Paola Zichi on feminisms and transnationalism in Mandatory Palestine, Sophie Rigney on Indigenous international law at the League of Nations, Shaimaa Abdelkarim on recognition and identity deformations in Egypt, Parvathi Menon on the political economy of protection and subjection in the Iraqi Mandate, and Ryan Martínez Mitchell on regional contestations in the space of Asia within the League’s international legal order.
The coronavirus pandemic has not been the easiest context in which to produce the first two issues of a fully independent, open-access journal. We are immensely grateful to our authors for their writing, labour and patience. We are likewise hugely thankful to all of our peer-reviewers for their generosity with their time and invaluable contributions, to our advisory board for their encouragement, and to our own institutions for their support, particularly Windsor Law and Maynooth Law.
The contents of this Issue and all articles are available to read and download via the links here. We very much hope you like it, please do share it far and wide, and we look forward to receiving your submissions for Issue 03 and beyond.
