2023 Scholarly Paper Award Winner: Ryan Liss

The CCIL is pleased to announce that Ryan Liss has been awarded the 2023 Scholarly Paper Award for his article entitled “Criminal Law in a World of States” which was published in the Michigan Journal of International Law (2022). 

This award recognizes the work of Canadian scholars of international law, and specifically scholarly papers that make a substantial contribution to the international law literature. 

Ryan Liss is an Assistant Professor and the Co-Director of the Public and Private International Law Research Group at Western Law. His research focuses on public international law (including international human rights law, international criminal law, and international humanitarian law) and criminal law, examining the ways in which human rights construct and constrain state power in both areas.  

Ryan’s work has appeared in the American Journal of International Law, the Canadian Yearbook of International Law, Michigan Journal of International Law, and NYU Journal of International Law and Politics, among other journals. His first monograph, which is currently in progress, is under contract with Oxford University Press.  Read more…
