Hawaiian Journal of Law and Politics
Publisher: University of Hawaii at Manoa
Coverage: Vols. 1-2 (2004-2006)
Additional Information: The Hawaiian Society of Law and Politics (HSLP) is a registered independent organization (RIO) under Co-curricular Activities, Programs, and Services (CAPS) at the University of Hawai`i at Manoa since October 30, 2003. The term Hawaiian is used in its national and geographical context and not in an ethnocentric sense.
According to its constitution, HSLP's membership is multi-disciplinary and open to all currently enrolled students, faculty and staff of the University of Hawai`i at Manoa. Given that Hawai`i has been recognized as an independent State since 1843 and for half a century entered into treaty relations with other independent states, HSLP was established as a student organization that applies Public International Law, as between States, and applicable theories to Hawaiian history. HSLP will promote the development of curriculum on the subject of Hawaiian statehood under international law for the University of Hawai`i.
