Dr. Binoy Kampmark teaches core legal courses within the Legal and Dispute Studies program for the Bachelor of Social Science at RMIT University. He has research interests in the institution of war, diplomacy, international relations, 20th Century History and law. He has written extensively on these topics in both refereed journals and more popular media.
Binoy’s research and teaching interests lie in the intersections of law, international relations and history. Much of this involves the examination of conflict, diplomacy, and the various crises confronting international society (refugees, terrorism, ‘rogue’ states, undocumented citizens). He is currently finishing a manuscript for publication on the evolution of the rogue state in American political debate. He is also engaged in a project on the origins of neoconservatism in the United States, notably in attitudes to international institutions and law.
The quality of his research has been acknowledged in awards made by the US-based International Association for the Study of Forced Migration and Limina, journal of the History Department of the University of Western Australia.
