Prof Antony Anghie recognised for outstanding contributions to international law
NUS Law Professor Antony Anghie has been conferred the prestigious Manley O. Hudson Medal by the American Society of International Law (ASIL) for his exceptional contributions to scholarship and achievement in international law.
Born in Sri Lanka and an intellectual heavyweight in the field of international law, Prof Anghie is only the second Asian outside of the US to receive this prestigious accolade. He is a pioneering and leading authority on Third World Approaches to International Law – an important field of scholarship which studies the inequalities of the international legal order. His work argues that the peoples of the Global South have been historically and systematically excluded from international law-making, resulting in ongoing inequality and justice.
