Introduction
I joined the Univ. of Manchester in 2016 as Senior Lecturer in Law, and co-direct the Law and Technology Initiative and Manchester International Law Centre. I also serve as Junior Faculty @ the Institute for Global Law and Policy (Harvard), sit on the Executive Board of the Association for Promotion of Political Economy and Law, and write as a guest blogger for The Faculty Lounge. I am interested in the interface of law-money-technology and dynamics of organisational change in global governance.

An increasing number of international law scholars have become drawn in recent years to the study of political economy.

Political Theology and International Law offers an account of the intellectual debates surrounding the term “political theology” in academic literature concerning international law.

Article
An increasing number of international law scholars over the last few years have started to turn their attention to the study of political economy. To what extent can this trend be considered an indication of an underlying ‘disciplinary turn’? How should one understand the phenomenon of disciplinary turns? The answer we propose to this question in t...

International law is not merely a set of rules or processes, but is a professional activity practised by a diversity of figures, including scholars, judges, counsel, teachers, legal advisers and activists. Individuals may, in different contexts, play more than one of these roles, and the interactions between them are illuminating of the nature of i...

Martti Koskenniemi's From Apology to Utopia is (rightly) considered a classic in international legal theory. The study tracks the oscillation of international legal argument over hundreds of years to reconcile seeming incongruencies: legal reasoning does not provide determinacy, but it brings weighted direction to political conflict; legal categori...
Book
Events such as the global financial crisis have helped reveal that the drivers and contours of governance on a national and international level remain a mystery in many respects. Set in this context, this timely Research Handbook is the first to explicitly address the constitutive relationship between law and political economy. With scholarly contr...

In its literature, the adjective 'modern' is typically inserted as a preface to the discipline of international law – 'modern international law'. The rhetoric of modernity within the discipline, in turn, generally designates a liberal posture towards governance, both in terms of describing the nature of conflicts facing transnational regulation and...

Beginning in the early 1990s, Third World Approaches to International Law scholarship (TWAIL) destabilized the mainstream narrative within international law that its doctrines were constituted by the historic search for order between formally equal state sovereigns. Instead, TWAIL scholars argued that the key constitutive dynamic of the discipline...

Russian foreign policy and the former Soviet bloc is again a central concern within international law and policy scholarship. This paper considers this renewed interest through an analysis of how Western thought has perceived Russia through three periods: the long 19th century, the 20th century Cold War, and post Cold War transitology. Analyzing th...

Religion is a reoccurring theme within international law, as both an external phenomenon that confronts the profession and an internal dynamic that influences the logic and sensibility of the profession. A key concept within theological belief and study is ‘eschatology’, which addresses the end of days and how believers might orient their lives acc...

Consumption-oriented models of governance dominate the contemporary global legal architecture. The financial crisis beginning in 2008, however, casts fundamental questions about the future viability of these approaches to economics and law.

In this article, I hypothesize that against mainstream secularization accounts concerning the 19th-century development of modern international law, especially within the Anglo-American experience, the discipline was significantly influenced by liberal Protestantism. My argument is that a liberal Protestant cultural elite, to which the first generat...

While it is often acknowledged there have been other “waves” of transition, this literature typically asserts that the sit...
