We were excited to launch our new series of Wednesday Webinars in the autumn. In the testing times of the pandemic, when we could not organise events in our usual fashion, the Webinar Series has provided an online platform for forward-thinking debates, with a strong voice from our audience, on the most pressing issues and challenges in international law and global affairs.

The webinars are held fortnightly, on Wednesday afternoons at 3pm, and are free and open to the public. Some of them are recorded and you can access videos on our website and YouTube channel. The series will continue in Semester 2 – follow us on social media and keep an eye on our website for the 2021 Winter/Spring Webinar Schedule.
