Welcoming Suzannah Linton

It's our great pleasure today to welcome Dr. Suzannah Linton (left) as an IntLawGrrls contributor.
Suzannah holds the Chair of International Law at Bangor University School of Law, located in the largest city in the Gwynedd area in northwest Wales. She took up that chair in March 2011.
Before that, she had been a member of the law faculty at the University of Hong Kong. There Suzannah ran the human rights program and worked intensively on Asian matters implicating international law; most notably in Cambodia, East Timor, Indonesia, Nepal, and Bangladesh.
At Bangor Law, Suzannah spearheads international law research, teaching, and dissemination of International Law. She's founded the Bangor Centre for International Law, set up master's degree programs, and built a team of colleagues that includes Evelyne Schmid and Yvonne McDermott, both IntLawGrrls contributors.
Suzannah's many publications (see here and here) range widely within the field of accountability for atrocities. For instance, she is a co-editor of International Criminal Procedure: Principles and Rules, set to be published by Oxford University Press next May. In her introductory post below, Suzannah begins a 2-part series in which she uncovers a forgotten process of accountability in a most surprising location: Hong Kong. Today she outlines the overall project; in tomorrow's post, she will discuss her recent article on the subject, published earlier this year in the Melbourne Journal of International Law. 
Heartfelt welcome!
