By design, the international legal system regulates people of all races. This seminar will examine how it deals (or does not deal) with issues relating to race and to what extent it perpetuates or alleviates racist practices. We will tackle these questions through a mix of historical, critical, and doctrinal methods and in a range of contexts. Topics will include the slave trade, the modern prohibitions of genocide and race-based discrimination, and the movement for decolonization and subsequent grievances of states from the Global South.
