    Transnational Perspectives on Race and Empire at the Intersection of TWAIL and CRT

    Transnational Perspectives on Race and Empire at the Intersection of TWAIL and CRT

    Contemporary global and national political crises, many of which threaten the
    human rights of millions and even the international system itself, bring into
    sharp relief enduring colonial legacies of racial injustice and racial inequality all
    over the world. In this opening and framing discussion, panelists will interrogate the role of Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL) in developing a transnational legal discourse on racial injustice and inequality, that accounts for the role of empire in producing and sustaining racial injustice and inequality.

    Emergencies and Crisis - Transnational Legal Discourse on Race and Empire

    Emergencies and Crisis - Transnational Legal Discourse on Race and Empire

While some rights cannot be suppressed, states still use emergency law to justify policies that reproduce inherently racialized colonial logics, including within the anti-terrorism frame. Panelists reflect on the analytical benefit of combining TWAIL (Third World Approaches to International Law) and CRT (Critical Race Theory) in scholarship on emergencies and crisis.
