The Deakin Law School invites all students to attend the book launch for Dr M. Ehteshamul (Tanim) Bari’s new landmark book titled ‘States of Emergency and the Law: The Experience of Bangladesh’. Dr Tanim Bari is a Lecturer and the Director of the Juris Doctor Program at Deakin Law School.

The evening will take an insightful look at the book’s impact on the fields of comparative constitutional law, human rights law and Asian law followed by networking opportunities and refreshments.

About the book:

In Bangladesh, the absence of effective constitutional safeguards for governing emergency regimes has resulted in each of the five emergencies being invoked on the imprecise ground of internal disturbance. During these five periods of emergency, either all or most of the fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution were suspended and the power of preventive detention was abused.

The outcome of this book will not only establish the best means for ensuring the maintenance of the rule of law but also for preventing undue intrusion on the fundamental human rights of individuals during emergency situations in Bangladesh.

When: Thursday 3rd August 2017 5:30pm – 8pm.
Where: Deakin Downtown – Level 12, Tower 2, 727 Collins Street, Docklands.
Dress code: Business Attire.
