GLAS & CBGHP | Colonialism, Capitalism, and Race in International Law

Saturday, September 18, 2021

Virtual Event


This symposium centers on racial constructions and their effects as social, cultural, and legal phenomena.  They are transnational, if not global. This workshop will address the construction of race in international law (both historically and contemporaneously) and thus its ongoing legacy.  We combine this with a look forward at the role that international law (has and) could play as a normative resource to address and redress institutionalized racial discrimination within countries.
