The Battle for International Law: South-North Perspectives on the Decolonization Era | Oxford University Press | Published : 2019


Struggles in the arena of international law and institutions in the years between 1955 and 1974 should be understood not so much as a battle to control a preexisting international law in an already- constituted world, but rather as marking a series of encounters between rival practices of world- making, which travelled with rival accounts of international law. The question of the corporation— how it should be understood, its relationship to both law and the state, and how it travels— was a key element of those rival worlds.
