Tamsin Phillipa Paige

PhD (Law) Candidate, University of Adelaide

I completed my LLB at UTS in 2011, where I focused my studies on Public International Law and Jurisprudence. In 2013 I completed my M Phil (Law) from ANU, submitting in the minimum allowed time and passing without revision to my dissertation. The dissertation was entitled 'The role of the law in the rise and fall of piracy' and it examined the historical development of the international law criminalising piracy and the way in which it was enforced in society through a case study on colonial expansion and a case study on Somalia. I am currently undertaking my PhD at Adelaide Law School, examining the approaches of the permanent five members of the UN Security Council to the phrase 'threat to the peace' under Art 39 of the UN Charter.
