06 1814 – 1914 – 1989: Paradigm Shifts in Public International Law and Politics

-
Hauptschule
Seminar
english language

The Congress of Vienna, the First World War and the fall of the Berlin Wall marked the Western political and historical imaginary and gave international lawyers the possibility to time and categorise international law. They envisaged a progressive history of international law divided into epochs, structured through different paradigms and governed by an evolutionary principle that led, happily, to the international law of the twentieth century. Assuming that periodisation is not a natural fact but an intellectual construction, the seminar intends to discuss critically how far this periodisation is still valid today. What effects did it produce on public international law? Which histories of public international law can still be told?
