Privatising International Law? Contracts, Business and Financing as International Law's New Normal
Gamze Erdem Turkelli participated in the launch of three exciting new books and an online panel discussion on privatising international law, hosted in collaboration with Acting Together: Law Advice and Support (ATLAS Network).
The three books launched are the following:
- Kinnari Bhatt, Concessionaires, Financiers and Communities, Implementing Indigenous Peoples' Rights to Land in Transnational Development Projects (Cambridge University Press, 2020)
- Gamze Erdem Turkelli, Children's Rights and Business, Governing Obligations and Responsibility (Cambridge University Press, 2020)
- Stéphanie de Moerloose, World Bank Environmental and Social Conditionality as a Vector of Sustainable Development (Schulthess, 2020)
Does the international legal order on which traditional international law scholarship and teaching is premised need to be re-examined in light of modern globalization which some perceive as the beginning of a new order? Drawing on these publications our three authors would like to engage a discussion on the changing regulatory basis and authority of international law in our global and inter-connected economy and its implications for the communities and individuals it seeks to represent. Bridging the divide in the scholarship and practice of international law, the authors will discuss the urgent need to re-shape and re-orientate research and teaching of international law in order for the discipline to meaningfully respond to today's complex and global issues.
