The Misery of International Law

Confrontations with Injustice in the Global Economy

John Linarelli, Margot Salomon, and Muthucumaraswamy Sornarajah

  • Examines the role of international law in constituting and sustaining injustice in the international economic order
  • Offers a synthesis of approaches to exploring the pathologies across the international legal regimes of trade, investment, and finance combining insights from radical critiques, political philosophy, history, and critical development studies
  • Explores ways in which international human rights law works against its own aims in reproducing the underlying terms of socio-economic immiseration
  • Brings together three international law scholars to present a forceful case for ridding international law of its hallmarks of fostering poverty, inequality, and dispossession
