I’m pleased to report that the Research Handbook on Disasters and International Law, edited by Susan C. Breau and Katja L.H. Samuel both of the University of Reading (UK) has now been published. I had the pleasure of contributing chapter 16 on ‘The international law of wildfires’ to this publication and I’m grateful to the editors, and the publisher Elgar, for the opportunity to contribute.
Congratulations on being recognised Internationally as an expert in the field. As a reader (and Asker) of the blogg I salute your style and clarity in explaining points of law.
Well done Eburn. I am rather chuffed that from my small acorn of stimulus planted all those years ago you have now grown a forest of knowledge. iGumboot.
iGumboot refers to the ‘small acorn of stimulus planted all those years ago’. To explain to readers of this blog, when I first started in legal practice Gumboot was the barrister my firm briefed and he was my ‘master’ when I later went to the Bar – so Gumboot was my mentor when I started in the legal profession and is indeed entitled to credit for his contribution to whatever I have become. Thank you Gumboot and thank you for the comment.
