My article Virtual Worlds as a New Game Theoretic Model for International Law: The Case of Bilateral Investment Treaties was published in the April, 2009 issue of the University of Edinburgh's Script-ed. I had originally presented the outline of this article at the GikIII Workshop in September, 2008 at the Oxford Internet Institute at the University of Oxford, where I received some valuable input and encouragement. Btw, the photograph on the cover of the journal is very intriguing. I was speculating if it has some connection to the name of the protagonist in the cult classic British 1960's television series, The Prisoner, starring the recently deceased Patrick McGoohan given that the first part of my article discusses the Prisoner's Dilemma. In any event, the photo is an interesting riff on the "I am not a number, I am a free man!" theme from the series.
The article is on the same topic as my currently in-progress PhD dissertation. I will be presenting and discussing the first chapter with other doctoral candidates from around the globe at the ATLAS Agora symposium at the London School of Economics in June and July this summer. I am very excited about participating in the LSE symposium and being able to absorb and explore some cutting edge ideas in the area of law and economics.
