EXCLUSION AND ITS CRITICS: SOUTHERN NARRATIVES OF INTERNATIONAL LAW
The Brazilian Journal of International Law (RDI) invites submissions for a special issue on Southern Narratives of International Law to be published in 2018. The issue will be edited by Professors Arthur Giannattasio (Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie, São Paulo), Fabio Morosini (Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre), and Michelle Ratton Sanchez Badin (Fundação Getulio Vargas, São Paulo)
In the last decades, alternative narratives about international law have attempted to reframe the field beyond the modern Western European narratives. In such an attempt to present a contribution to international legal thinking outside and beyond a northern perspective, a new agenda for international law (teaching and research agenda, methods and analytical frameworks) is being pursued by academics in the global south or by academics who are concerned with the challenges that the global south is pressing on international legal theory. Indeed, global south approaches are associated with unveiling and reconceptualizing exclusion and of the role of the excluded in the international legal order. This call for papers aims at raising consciousness around the role of the global south in the theory of international law, to understand and to propose concepts and institutional experiences derived from those multilevel pure and applied criticisms to positivist theories and value-free doctrines. Thus, this call and its Special Editors encourage submissions on a variety of themes that address international law from that alternative standpoint. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
1) What does it mean to think critically in international law?
