What is the place of history in the study of law? How do historians of international law conceive of emergent actors on the global stage?

Dr Megan Donaldson, recently appointed to a lectureship in Public International Law at University College London, addresses these questions and shares her experience of a complex intersection between law, legal history and the history of political thought.
