Webinar 'Positivism and International Law'
|When:||Mo 25-01-2021 15:00 - 18:00|
International law does not often get into the spotlight of legal philosophy. As a result, there is a significant conceptual and methodological gap between legal positivism known jurisprudentially which deals primarily with how domestic legal systems function, and international legal positivism, which has recently been under many attacks as too formalistic and orthodoxic. This discrepancy between two versions of positivism, their agendas, focuses, and key premises, is a consequence of the current practice of the legal discipline, when legal philosophers and international lawyers seldom have a common space to talk to each other.
This webinar, co-organised by University of Groningen, University of Paris II, and Jorge Tadeo Lozano University is an attempt to address this deficiency.
