Presenter:Christopher A. Whytock (UC Irvine, School of Law)Title: “From International Law and International Relations to Law and World Politics”Abstract:International relations (IR) scholars now widely agree that law matters in world politics. But so far they have focused almost exclusively on one type of law—public international law—and primarily on one aspect of world politics—international relations. I argue that by doing so IR scholars are missing types of law that are equally if not more important to international relations than public international law. Moreover, by neglecting types of law that are important to transnational relations—that is, the cross-border activity of private actors—IR scholarship on international law is behind the more general trend in IR scholarship away from state-centric approaches toward more holistic analyses of world politics. I therefore advocate a move from the study of international law and international relations (IL/IR) to a research agenda on law and world politics (L/WP). As a step in that direction, this paper focuses on two fields of law that are largely missing in IR research—foreign relations law and private international law—and explains how they matter in world politics and how a better understanding of them will help IR scholars advance knowledge of international cooperation, international conflict, and global governance.Paper: Click here to download.
