Simply thrilled to announce that the American Society of International Law’s Women in International Law Interest Group (WILIG) will honor IntLawGrrls founder and Editor Emerita, Diane Marie Amann, with this year’s Prominent Woman in International Law Award. As part of the ASIL Annual Meeting, Diane will speak on “International Law and the Future of Peace” at this year’s WILIG luncheon on Thursday, April 4 from 1 to 3 pm in the Mt. Vernon Room. Hope to see many IntLawGrrls contributors and readers there to celebrate Diane and her immense contributions to this space for female voices in international law.
As many of you know, Diane’s scholarship focuses on the interaction of national, regional, and international legal regimes in efforts to combat atrocity and cross-border crime. She’s written recently on legal responses to U.S. policies respecting executive detention at Guantánamo and elsewhere, and on the use of foreign and international law in U.S. constitutional decisionmaking. Her article “Abu Ghraib,” 153 University of Pennsylvania Law Review 2085 (2005), was named the Article of the Year in International Criminal Law by the American National Section of the International Association of Penal Law. Her publications have appeared in English, French, and Italian, in books and in journals including the Georgetown Law Journal, UCLA Law Review, American Journal of International Law, American Journal of Comparative Law, International Journal of Constitutional Law, Columbia Journal of Transnational Law, Revue de science criminelle de droit pénal comparé, and International Criminal Law Review.
