Chapter Summary

Ove has such an unsentimental view of his own writings. Many academics keep a detailed track record of what they have written and would not miss the opportunity to add something to their list of publications. Bring's interest in international law encompasses both public and private international law. It dates back to his time as a doctoral candidate when his supervisor, the late Professor Hilding Eek at Stockholm University, requested him to lecture on private international law. This was a wise step. Bring's interest in international humanitarian law extended over to disarmament law. This interest was certainly promoted by his role as a legal adviser and his recurring trips to Geneva and New York. It is worth mentioning that Bring never criticises individual colleagues who work in the various Ministries (Foreign Affairs, Defence, Justice).
