My podcast is a hotchpotch. You will mostly find lectures on law: international law, international economic law, legal theory, and, my favourite, TWAIL. But I also upload discussions on undergraduate and postgraduate studies focusing, principally, on the skills needed to succeed in either endeavour. My goal is one upload a week. I may fall short of this and you are welcome to rap me over the knuckles if I do, hopefully more gently than the Jesuit nuns did in primary school. If you have any q ...

Financial globalisation is convoluted. To navigate the architecture that facilitates flows of cross-border finance, it is necessary to understand a little (perhaps a lot) about the nature of commercial activity, monetary and fiscal policy, and global political economy, topics partially covered in this podcast. Central to the growth of commercial ac…

What is neoliberalism? David Harvey provides a simple treatise on the ideology: the introduction of competitive market forces into historically non-market spheres. Since the days of democratic capitalism, healthcare, education, electricity, and water provision were the purview of public actors. This made sense. As necessities of life, these would b…

Cotton is a subtropical plant that grows just north of the Equator and across three continents: Africa, the Americas, and Asia. Despite European familiarity with cotton—thanks to Muslim and Asian traders—Europeans could not grow cotton. The cotton products they obtained were already manufactured, denying them the greatest added-value. At least this…

Students are forever struggling to improve their writing skills. The goal, however, alludes, bobbing and weaving like a prize-fighter. In the following podcast, I detail steps you can undertake to achieve greater efficiency, even elegance, in your writing. Key to this is what I term 'segmenting'. By segmenting your writing, you can move through eac…

International economic law is the regulatory regime for global capitalism. But what is capitalism and how did to rise to the status of sacred economic model? In this episode, I examine first the nature of markets as political and economic spaces. Next, I discuss historical developments in Europe that allowed for the emergence of a 'rational legal s…

In the third and fourth parts of the introductory episode, I describe the three major theories in international political economy: mercantilism, liberalism, and Marxism. Through its various iterations, international economic law has consistently been informed by the first two and critiqued by the third. Hints of the third are evident in some legal …

In the second part of the introductory episode, I describe the putative 'birth' of IEL. As observed before, it dates back to mercantilism, imperialism, and colonialism but many texts on IEL return to the period immediately following the Second Great European War for the beginning. Of particular interest in this part is the clash between Keynesianis…
 
Central to the study of international law is international economic law. Indeed, much of what emerged in IL was provoked by the economic rapprochement of European nations during the mercantile period but also the plunder of the Third World pursued by the First. Of course, international economic law was not devised solely to mediate economic relatio…
 
Linguistic intelligence is vital to the study of law. A key element of linguistic intelligence is the ability to devise and deploy persuasive arguments. Persuasiveness, however, is an altogether different standard to accuracy. Persuasiveness is primarily contingent on the argumentative skills of the advocate: poor skills will translate into a poor …
 
Students are ineffective! This is especially true for university students who apply the same study habits they learned during their secondary years, most of which are unsuitable at the tertiary level. In the first of a three-part series on succeeding at university, I detail in the following episode the 'triangular method of studying'. By dividing y…
 
Who does international law apply to? The answer is not clear-cut. Self-evidently nation-states are subjects of international law: they sign treaties, create custom, and can be held accountable for breaches thereof. But beyond the obvious, which other actors benefit from rights and are bound by responsibilities within the international legal framewo…
 
Is international law hopelessly Eurocentric, prejudicial, and violent? Considering that international law has, at different stages, legitimised the enslavement, massacre, and conquest of non-Europeans, the question seems redundant. And yet, much of the international law's barbaric history is glossed over in historical and orthodox studies of the in…
 
What are the sources of international law? The matter is not as straight forward as it could be. We do indeed have article 38 of the International Court of Justice statute to guide us. But this is more enumeration than explanation. In the episodes 5 and 6, I detail the contours of international legal sources. I begin with a couple of vital PICJ dec…

In this episode, I tackle international legal theory. While not a favourite topic for students of law students, or students in general, legal theory is essential for understanding the nature of law. Law is one way of regulating social relations. Violence is another. Markets are a third. And so on. Why we choose to mediate some relations with law - …
 
What to do with the Indians? Such was the question Columbus posed to Francisco de Vitoria, leading Spanish theologian and jurist of the 16th century. Columbus had landed in Hispaniola to find a people with families, organisational systems, and normative frameworks, hardly the savages he anticipated. What is more they were hospitable and even welcom…
 
Continuing from where we left off, in this week's podcast I examine modern international law's origins, beginning with a discussion of Francisco de Vitoria's development of jus gentium or the law of nations and ending with the Treaty of Westphalia and the emergence of the modern conception of state sovereignty.…
 
In the first two episodes, I explore the nature of international law as a system of social order on one hand but also an instrument of domination on the other. Both characters are the result of two competing points of origin for the modern international legal framework: the lectures of Francisco de Vitoria (domination) and the Treaty of Westphalia …
