(Oxford University Press) which has made the shortlist for the Hart-SLSA 2019 book prize hosted by the Socio-Legal Studies Association (SLSA). The book prize is awarded for the most outstanding piece of socio-legal scholarship published in the 12 months up to 30 September preceding the closing date for nominations.

The winner will be announced at the SLSA Annual Conference in Leeds and will receive £250.

Professor Roberts’ book has already won the American Society of International Law’s Certificate of Merit for Preeminent Contribution to Creative Scholarship, was long listed for the Council for the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences 2018 book prize, and was Oxford University Press’ top-selling law monograph worldwide in 2017 and 2018. Coupled with ‘Comparative International Law’ (2018 OUP), it examines different national approaches to international law in times of geopolitical change. It has been a major hit throughout the international law community, resulting in invited presentations to the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, NATO, the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office and the European Commission.
