Continuing Socio-Legal Scholarship: Professor Urfan Khaliq

Urfan Khaliq, Professor of International Law, discusses how he finished writing a book in lockdown, and the six-year journey undertaken with his friend and co-author, Professor Anver Emon of the University of Toronto, in the making of it. The book, ‘Jurisdictional Exceptionalisms’, explores the ‘thorny legal issue’ of parental child abduction from an international law perspective, and will be published in Cambridge University Press’ Law in Context series. This is part of an ongoing series in which the Cardiff School of Law and Politics community discuss how they are conducting research from home, and the academic books that are occupying them during these unprecedented times.
