New Publication: Volume 10 Issue 2 & 10th Anniversary Issue


Congratulations to the brilliant authors and editors who worked together to publish Volume 10 Issue 2 and the Griffith Journal of Law & Human Dignity's 10th Anniversary Issue.

In our general issue, we have three thought-provoking papers on a range of different matters:

  • Restoring Human Dignity: Some Reflections on the Right to Repair & Medical Devices and Assistive Technologies by Leanne Wiseman and Kanchana Kariyawasam;
  • Reformist Tinkering, the Queensland Law of Murder and Other Disasters by Santo De Pasquale and Adrian Howe; and
  • Preserving Human Dignity in the Age of Autonomous Weapon Systems by Anjali Nadaradjane.

Our special issue features the work of esteemed inaugural authors and scholars with an enduring connection to Griffith University:

  • 10th Year Anniversary Editorial – 2012 to 2022 by Allan Ardill;
  • Regime Change Geopolitics: Obstacles to Freedom and Human Dignity by John Braithwaite;
  • The Centenary of the First Abolition of Capital Punishment in Queensland: A Study in Law and Human Dignity by the Hon Michael Kirby AC CMG;
  • A Bit of History by Julian Burnside AO KC; and
  • A Call for Reform: The Need for an Effective Response to Asbestos in Australian Workplaces and Residential Settings by Gill North and Therese Wilson.

The production of knowledge that is open and accessible to all is a major part of our mission as a journal. In light of this, we hope you enjoy reading these articles.
