Imperialism and International Law


I will argue that there is an intimate relationship between capitalism, imperialism and international law that accounts for the fact that the structure and process of international law have always disadvantaged third world peoples, especially its subaltern groups. Old imperialism or colonialism influenced its development in a fundamental way and was succeeded by neo-colonialism and now global imperialism. I will identify the key features of international law in the era of global imperialism.
