It is evident that, from times past, international law has provided the powerful with a series of instruments by which to exploit and control the weak, and even provided legal cover for colonial rule. With this historical awareness, it is evident that there is no necessary linkage between international law and global justice; indeed, it is more convincing to claim that the historic experience, with some exceptions, most clearly expresses the reinforcing interconnections between law, power and injustice.
But international law, as with all law, is a two-edged reality and, with political and moral imagination, can be used advantageously by the weak to resist the plunder and invasions of the strong.
Domination by the powerful has always produced resistance, and international law has been crucially shaped by it. International law has also been a very useful tool in the hands of a global civil society and social movements in making concrete progress towards equity, democratisation and account- ability.
And, by so doing, it did manage selectively to reconnect international law with some important issues of global justice. We are also conscious of the historical moment that seems to include a crisis of global governance beyond the capacities of a world of sovereign states to resolve.
In such a setting the global war on terrorism can be understood as a new hegemonic project to assert dominance over the South, and its resources, while keeping the world economy tilted to favour the North. The world order alternatives to global hegemony at this stage seem to be some combination of regionalism, global civic activism giving rise to a global civil society , and normative commitments to counter-hegemonic readings of human rights, ecological sustainability and the global rule of law, especially with respect to the use of force.
It is our hope that this special issue will encourage debate and dialogue on the topics covered. Related Papers. By sujith xavier.
