Special JICJ Issue on the Crime of Aggression — And It’s Free!

by Kevin Jon Heller

It is my pleasure to announce that the Journal of International Criminal Justice, the leading journal in the field, has just published a special issue on the crime of aggression to commemorate its 10th anniversary.  The special issue, which is edited by Claus Kreß and Philippa Webb, contains a variety of fascinating articles on aggression from a number of leading scholars.  I am delighted to be one of the contributors (though everyone hates my article) — but I’m even more delighted that the special issue includes an article on aggression and quasi-states written by one of my most brilliant LLB students, Alexander Wills.  It’s an exceptional article and richly deserves its place among the others.

Here is a list of the articles in the special issue:
