Head of the School of Law and Politics, Professor Urfan Khaliq has been appointed to the editorial board of a prestigious international law journal.
International & Comparative Law Quarterly (ICLQ) is one of the world’s most respected law journals; publishing papers written by global experts on public and private international law, comparative law, human rights, and European law.
Professor Khaliq brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the ICLQ board. He is Professor of Public International and European Laws however his research and teaching interests also encompass a vast array of areas including International Human Rights Law, Foreign Policy and aspects of Islamic Law. He is a regular contributor to both BBC Wales and the BBC World Service and has acted as an advisor to numerous NGOs, governments, and international organisations.
The ICLQ was founded in 1952 and has built a reputation for publishing innovative and original articles within various fields, exploring connections between subject areas. It offers both academics and practitioners wide topical coverage, without compromising its rigorous editorial standards.
The journal attracts scholarship of the highest standard from around the world giving it a truly international frame of reference. The 'Shorter Articles and Notes' section aids discussion of contemporary legal issues and 'Book Reviews' highlight the most important new publications in relevant fields. The ICLQ is the journal of the British Institute of International and Comparative Law and is published by Cambridge University Press.
Speaking of his appointment to the board, Professor Khaliq said, “Everyone working in the English language in the fields of International, European or Comparative Law, knows that the ICLQ is one of the places to be published. It brings together scholars and practitioners (private, government, think tanks etc) from all around the world and is read everywhere law is studied or practised. It is a journal I read with awe as a student and to now join the editorial board is both a huge honour but also responsibility - so that I can work with the other members of the editorial board to ensure the journal is as important for current and future generations of scholars as it always has been.”
