Spring 2025 Reading Group

International Law and Global South Statecraft

Prerequisite: Public International Law

Exam Type: No Exam

This reading group will explore the role of the state and sovereignty in contemporary multilateral affairs, with a focus on struggles concerning the purported breakdown of the “rules-based international order,” transformation of economic inequity, and resistance against foreign interference. We will read primary and secondary sources, think critically about legal and political claims, and explore potential futures for what a “pro-Global South approach” to international law and institutions of global governance might look like.

Note: This reading group will meet on the following dates: TBD.
