Notes The volume brings together scholars from around the world with panache for re-reading international law. It deals with both theory of international law and issues of interpretation. It addresses themes such as the history of international law, policy approach, customary law, human rights, international courts and tribunals, international bureaucracy, and investment law and constitutional approach to international law. Editors and contributors come from common law and civil law backgrounds. The number of scholars engaging critically with the paradoxes hidden in international law continues to grow. This edited volume features contributions by scholars from around the world, from different generations, and with different critical perspectives, reflecting the vibrancy of contemporary critical debates. The editors have identified three main streams representating critical international law. While Postrealism discusses international laws and international politics, Postcolonialism grapples with the understanding of international law vis-à-vis decolonized countries informed by sociology, philosophy and history. Transnationalism displaces states as the primary makers of international law to include non-state actors in the global governance, if any, of international law.
