Pandora's Box 2004

This year’s articles investigated topics as varied as comparative terrorism laws, the boundaries of religious freedom, stolen wages, women in developing East Timor and the Australian sex industry. There are also articles from legal practitioners that provide inspiration and reinforce the importance of careful examination of the social implications of the law and the way it is practiced.
