Race and Empire: Current Issues Within, Through, and Across National Borders
Wednesday, March 10, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
This webinar will address current issues in international law through the study of traditions of the Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL) and Critical Race Studies. Engaging with the ways in which the contemporary international legal system continues to be characterized by racial hierarchies and imperial logics, the talk will critically assess the regimes of humanitarian intervention, counter-terrorism and migration as they have been applied to Libya over the last decade. The analysis of the Libyan case helps illustrate the operation of racial logics and imperial prerogatives shot through the international governance regimes that manage bodies and territories at the periphery of the Global North.
