Julian Assange & Asylum

The BBC has reported that Julian Assange was granted asylum by Ecuador.  He sought refuge in Ecuador's London embassy in June.  See also this Q&A from the BBC.

Earlier thoughts on Assange's strategy are available from The Asylumist, Dipublico, and EJIL Talk.

To learn more about diplomatic asylum generally, here is a recently published thesis on the subject: Diplomatic Asylum in the Context of Public International Law (Mykolas Romeris University, 2012)
