The crisis in international law

  • Published
    7th Jan, 2023


  • The challenges for core universal values enshrined in international law are Securitisation, populism, and protectionism.

The Geo-economic challenge:

  • The post-world war-II scenario: It was a bipolar one with great power competition between a ‘capitalist’ America and a ‘communist’ Soviet Union led to the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the collapse of communism. 
  • The ‘relative harmony’ phase:later the phase saw the spread of democracy, greater acceptance of universal human rights, and a global consensus for maintaining international rule of law with multilateral institutions and independent international courts acting as referees.
  • Evolving a multipolar world:   Today international law faces a new ground reality i.e. the dwindling of the ‘liberal’ and ‘capitalist’ west and the rise of an ‘autocratic’ China and ‘expansionist’ Russia.
