The Law of the List 

The Law of the List is an interdisciplinary study of global security law in motion and the first detailed socio-legal analysis of the UN Security Council’s counterterrorism listing regime. It shows how governing though the technology of the list is transforming the Security Council and the international legal order in far-reaching ways, engaging with current debates in international law, critical security studies, global governance, Science and Technology Studies, governmentality scholarship and socio-legal studies. 

The Law of the List is available to read via the Cambridge University Press website.
