On April 29-30, 2011 the London School of Economics will host a workshop on ‘Towards a Radical International Law’.  The Workshop will explore how International law can be a prominent site for the investiture of hope in the face of global insecurities. Yet, as inequality deepens, violence remains rampant, and the earth’s resources become exhausted, the idioms in which that hope is typically expressed – human rights, development, international crime, and so on – are revealing their complicities and limitations. Some radical rethinking of international law seems urgently needed.  The Workshop organizers are seeking papers which excavate the relation between international law and the production of disadvantage.  A limited number of grants to assist participants with the cost of travel and accommodation may be available.  For more information click here.
