About the Event

On 10 February 2011, the Institute for Human Rights, University College London and the School of Law, University of Bristol held a colloquium entitled ‘Interpretivism in International Law’ hosted by Macfarlanes LPP.

In the last 30 years interpretivism has developed as a general theory about the nature of law which stands as an alternative to legal positivism and traditional natural law theories. Although there is an existing literature on interpretivism in the context of national law and particular areas of international law, there has been no extended treatment of general international law from this perspective. At this colloquium a range of international lawyers and legal and political philosophers will be brought together to consider how this general theory might be applied to the study and analysis of international law.
