  • Volume 6 Sexual violence perpetrated against women in war
    • Abstract: Varrasso, Bridget
      Sexual violence perpetrated against women in combat is used as a weapon of war; utilised to destroy the perceived enemy through attack on its women and to advance the war campaign of its perpetrators. Sexual assault in conflict is not the indiscriminate act of individuals, but a determined strategy conducted systematically in combat by militia - rebel groups - employed by governments and carried out by its soldiers. Mass rape of civilians featured as a tactic in the Croatia and Bosnia- Herzegovina conflict where 60,000 cases of war-related rape have been documented, in Sierra Lione where between 50,000 and 64,000 women were sexually victimized during the protracted armed conflict, and in Rwanda where up to half a million women were raped in the 1994 genocide. In the Democratic Republic of Congo, otherwise known as the "rape capital of the world", vaginal destruction has been recognised as a common injury sustained by women. Each of these serves as an example of the notorious use of sexual violence against women in conflict.

  • Volume 6 Climate policy in Australia
    • Abstract: Lodewyckx, Stefan
      Few political, moral, social, and economic problems are as difficult and pervasive as that of climate change. Since the first session of the United Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), nations of the world have been trying to act to safeguard their future in a world shaped by anthropogenic global warming. However, the situation for any given country can be immensely complex. The nature of this complexity has kept the resolution of the climate debate out of reach for so long - each country has a vested interest to resolve this issue, but each understands that it may need to substantially change the way it operates. If nothing is done, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) believes consequences will be borne by all nations. One such nation is Australia.

  • Volume 6 Society 'remasculinised': The limitations of liberalism and the
           utility of feminism in conceptualisng the political significance of 9/11
    • Abstract: Robinson, Jordan
      The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 (9/11) have resulted in a significant reformulation of international politics away from traditional Cold War approaches to International Relations (Pettman 2004: 88). Scholars have questioned the problematic way in which the United States chose military action as the immediate and supposedly legitimate response to the attack on home soil, as if no alternatives existed (Pettman 2004: 88). Furthermore, despite the sheer volume of literature surrounding the events and its aftermath (Wight 2009: 100), questions have been raised regarding the "relatively narrow public debate that [has] emerged" (Bleiker 2003: 430). The question must be posed: where does the significance of 9/11 lie' Clearly, 9/11 was "not only a human tragedy, but also a political crisis" (Bleiker 2003: 434) of global importance that deeply disturbed the sense of security that reigned in Western states (Bellamy and Bleiker, 2008: 2). However, the 'good versus evil' rhetoric of the Bush Administration has blinded some commentators to the political significance of the event. The question of 'why did it happen'' has not been adequately explored (Bleiker 2003: 440).

  • Volume 6 An impediment to development: The need for native title reform in
           Australia
    • Abstract: Bowering, Ethan
      Native title is a right which must be used. Used as a tool to bring about positive change. For social purposes. For cultural purposes. And for economic purposes. It must be used as part of our armoury to close the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians (Macklin 2008: 11).

  • Volume 6 First they came for the bikies... a look into South Australia's
           anti bikie legislation
    • Abstract: Cash, Amy
      Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs (OMCs) have long been a part of organised crime in Australia, involved in drug manufacture and trafficking, violence, fraud and money laundering. Bikie gangs in South Australia first began to be regarded as criminals when one biker was shot in a fray in 1974. Soon after, the South Australian Police formed a Bikie Squad. In 2001, during the Annual Run members of the Gypsy Joker Motorcycle club clashed with the Bikie Squad after the Squad began kicking over motorcycles. The ensuing brawl left police humiliated, with several hospitalised, and the Commander's jaw broken and his hat commandeered by a Gypsy Joker member for the remainder of the fight. After this, media coverage of OMCs grew increasingly negative, and Premier Mike Rann began a vendetta against bikies.

  • Volume 6 A jurisprudential defence of international law's legitimacy
    • Abstract: Moss, Aaron
      International law's legitimacy is contested for a range of reasons. Critics claim, inter alia, that international law is illegitimate as it is 'unenforceable', as it simply represents value-judgements or realpolitik, and cannot represent a legal system when certain states are permanently beyond its reach. However, this essay will argue international law is legitimate and real law. This will occur through considering various cognitive schools of legal philosophy, jurisprudence, and applying them to the concept and structures of international law. It will ground this meta-analysis in empirical evidence, through applying each conclusion to specific examples and elements of international law.

  • Volume 5 'You Can Never Be Too Thin....' the Western Ideal Taking over the

    • Abstract: Edwards, Janet
      The general assumption that eating disorders such as Anorexia Nervosa (AN), Bulimia Nervosa (BN) and Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (EDNOS), which are widely prevalent globally have their origin in Western cultures is criticised. It is suggested that the disorders may be related to Western ideals of beauty and body perceptions, but more research needs to be done on the possible genetic and psychological bases of the disorders.

    • Abstract: Clarke, Damian
      The current inadequate progress on the achievement of the United Nation's Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) on tackling global poverty, HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases, and environmental instability effectively by 2015 is discussed. The reasons for the failure to do so are analysed, and it is suggested that appropriate steps should be taken to reverse the slowdown and step up efforts to achieve the MDGs.

      An opinion is presented that the superpower position of the United States is not assured based on its supreme naval might as suggested earlier. It is believed that China is getting closer to that position in the 21st century due to technological advancements such as robotics and genetic engineering and virtual reality interfaces in the digital sphere.

  • Volume 5 Who Is Sorry': Conservative Attitudes Towards Indigenous

    • Abstract: Midalia, Harry
      An opinion is presented that conservative attitudes towards Indigenous Australians and their history is biased despite the apology of the then Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd in 2008 to the Stolen Generations. It is observed that conservatives still maintain their colonialist and paternalistic attitude and justify the removal of Indigenous children from their families then as an action for their wellbeing.

  • Volume 4 Slow justice or no justice': Sexual violence during the

    • Abstract: Wheldrake, Kate
      From April - June 1994, Rwanda experienced 100 days of genocide: days that became synonymous with extreme brutality and almost one million dead. The sheer horror of the number of dead has tended to obscure another side of the genocide: the systematic sexual violence perpetrated against hundreds of thousands of Rwandan women and girls.

  • Volume 4 Climate change and you: How is the human rights discourse
           informing climate change policy'
    • Abstract: Rafalowicz, Alex
      Climate change debates have traditionally focused on scientific, environmental and economic aspects. Policy has focused on the causes of climate change; its severity and extent; the economic costs of confronting the issue by de-carbonising the global economy. As scientific understanding of climate change has evolved, driven by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the focus of debate has progressively broadened with increasing attention being given to the human dimension of climate change. The Human Rights Council resolution 7/23 on human rights and climate change exemplifies this broadening of the debate.

  • Volume 4 "Women's rights are human rights": Rhetoric vs reality
    • Abstract: Thomas, Michelle
      Rights-talk can function differently from different mouths. It depends who is speaking about rights and where they are speaking The same language that may be rhetorical fluff in one place may be words of extreme courage and radical change in another... The use of rights-talk in Washington or Paris might be used piously as new words for the same old liturgy in the cathedrals of international trade and development.... But from another place (a slum or the scene of a rigged election) and spoken from another voice (that of a poor man or a woman land rights lawyer) the same words of rights-talk could function prophetically as a demand for redress to change and challenge power.

  • Volume 4 State failure in the Pacific: Howard versus Rudd
    • Abstract: Maloney, May
      Since the end of the 1980s Australia's engagement in the Pacific has intensified. This situation appears, at least rhetorically, to be the result of a new security paradigm that places state-failure as a threat to Australia's national interest. Through an examination of Australia's bilateral relationship with Fiji, and through a comparison of John Howard and Kevin Rudd's approaches to 'advancing the national interest' we will see that state-failure is not, in reality, the primary concern of Australia's foreign policy makers in the Pacific region. Despite the seemingly humanitarian vocabulary which surrounds the articulation of 'national interest', the actual conduct of policy in the Pacific region reveals that the pursuit, and maintenance, of Australia's regional hegemony is the single most important driving force behind Australia's policy decisions.

  • Volume 4 Accessing clean safe water in Africa: Privatization and the World
           Bank
    • Abstract: Han, Will
      A common misconception is that the scarcity of water in Africa is a physical problem; there is just not enough water available in the region for its inhabitants. The reality is that the scarcity is "structural" in nature: a product of "low level[s] of infrastructural and socio-economic development". As Michel Camdessus, who previously headed the IMF, observed in a report for the World Panel on Financing Water Infrastructure: "the problem is less one of global [water] shortages... than one of mismanagement and skewed political priorities." The challenge is to remedy the apparent contradiction of water availability and inability to access safe sources of water.

  • Volume 4 Coffee, laneways and child prostitution: Eradicating Melbourne's
           hidden shame
    • Abstract: Jennings, Anna
      Melbourne enjoys a reputation as a safe, culturally rich city, with differing attractions in each of its diverse suburbs. Cafes of international standard fill out the streets of Carlton and gorgeous beaches line St Kilda, while Kew enjoys schools of outstanding academic standard. And while these suburbs differ greatly in many respects, they each have one factor in common. That is, child prostitution. Since Victoria legalised prostitution in 1984, the number of both legal and illegal brothels has risen exponentially. With it has risen the number of Australian children and adolescents Forced - by family members, boyfriends, pimps, or economic necessity - into prostitution. While numerous factors coagulate to complicate the prevention of child prostitution, by far the key impediment is the continuing existence and tolerance of adult prostitution. As such this essay will argue that the most effective, if only, way to eliminate child prostitution is to counter all prostitution by adopting the Swedish approach. The Swedish law prohibits the purchase of sexual services but does not punish the women and children found to be prostituting. The law is premised on the view that prostitution is a form of violence against women and that the existence of prostitution is driven by male demand. This is the view that should be adopted by the Australian Government.
