Happy Sunday everybody!
I am coming at you from what feels like a whole week of rain, and I kind of drained by it by now, I really want my summer already! Things don’t look brighter in the world either, feels like I haven’t heard any good news in ages. Do you have anything? Please share with me, I need it!
I didn’t post last week’s collection, so this is going to be a bit longer, than usual, I hope you don’t mind. Happy reading!
International law, specifically human rights law has a lot to do with what’s going on in the world these days. The US being the human rights champion its (former) leaders liked to show themeselves has a lot of sweeping to do on its own backyard.

The Elephant in the (Court)Room: Interdependence of Human and Animal Rights in the Anthropocene

Glad we cleared this up. Although this is just one of the legal questions arising from the measures taken by states in the past few months.
