Our cover article was written by Birkbeck's own Simon Thorpe, who in his analytical piece on Occupy Wall Street and Occupy London, discusses its socio-legal foundation and resulting impact to our understanding of rights, democracy and constitution. James Fisher, Zoha Jamil, Rossella Pisconti and Agnieszka Szpak also offer their views on important issues from cultural defence, to the US regime in Guantanamo Bay.
We are especially grateful to members of the Editorial Board, the Advisory Board, as well as the faculty and staff at the School of Law who have been instrumental in getting the review to where it is now. Special thanks also to Sir Terence Etherton for his kind (and continued) support of the review, as well as to Wendy Lynwood, Peter Fitzpatrick, and Jose Bellido who have helpfully provided guidance on our reviewing and copy-editing processes.
Finally, we would also like to thank you, the reader, for your continued interest. We hope that this review is as helpful for you, as it was for us.
