During the past decade, it has become obvious that economic interconnectedness did not bring forth frictionless international relations as many liberal theorists had predicted. To the contrary, the fact that economic integration has been profoundly uneven has enabled the weaponisation of asymmetrical economic relations for the achievement of geopolitical and/or economic goals (Whyte 2022; Farrell […] The post CfP: Dollar Hegemony, State Sovereignty and International Order appeared first on Critical Legal Thinking ..read more

The Colonial Breach and the Colonial Bind
Critical Legal Thinking
by Siraj Izhar
1M ago
Reposted from Interregnum. Whatever the contentions on the term we use to express the scale and method of killing we are witnessing in Gaza, the description at the International Court of Justice as a ‘live-streamed genocide‘ is both apt and particular to our age. For this is no 20th-century genocide we hear of through whispered rumours. Instead, […] The post The Colonial Breach and the Colonial Bind appeared first on Critical Legal Thinking ..read more

Epistolary International Law Date: 26 September 2024 Location: LSE Convened by Nora Jaber and Gerry Simpson Increasingly, scholars publicly intervene in international events by writing letters in which they invoke international law to denounce injustices as illegal.

Critical Legal Thinking
by Editor S
1M ago
Twenty years have passed since Jacques Derrida’s death, yet his profound philosophical contributions to the Critical Legal Studies movement in both the UK and the US continue to reverberate. His concept of deconstruction, which challenges traditional philosophical dichotomies and concepts through meticulous analysis of language and reason, has been a driving force for numerous Critical […] The post Symposium: Derrida and his Legacy within Critical Legal Studies: Twenty years since his Death appeared first on Critical Legal Thinking ..read more

Robert Michels’ Lessons for the Left
Critical Legal Thinking

Tim Christiaens In the early 2010s, many people on the left proclaimed the death of state-based socialism, the political party, and any kind of organizational authority. From Occupy Wall Street to the Arab Spring, the 2011 revolts put their faith in horizontalist assemblies to advance progressive politics, but horizontalist networked solidarity proved too feeble to […] The post Robert Michels’ Lessons for the Left appeared first on Critical Legal Thinking ..read more

Nanak naam,  chardi kala,  tere bane sarbat da bhala. I say these words by way of normalising a Sikh consciousness and vocabulary. The words appear at the end the Ardas, one of the Sikh prayers that is part of ritualistic daily practice. I am not quoting them here to advocate a religious position but rather to encourage […] The post Collective Well-Being as Resistance: Garment Workers against Racial Capitalism appeared first on Critical Legal Thinking ..read more
