Where Does the Critique of International Human Rights Stand? An Exploration in 18 Vignettes -- Self-critique, (Anti)politics and Criminalization: Reflections on the History and Trajectory of the Human Rights Movement -- National Responses in Latin America to International Events Propelling the Justice Cascade: The Gelman Case -- New Theoretical Approaches in International Law in a European context -- Hugo Grotius in the Contemporary Memory of International Law: Secularism, Liberalism, and the Politics of Restatement and Denial -- New Approaches to International Law: Images of a Genealogy -- International legal innovation and the European condition -- Notes for the History of New Approaches to International Legal Studies – Not a Map but Perhaps a Compass -- Formalization and Deformalization as Narratives of the Law of War.

This volume offers a unique reflection on the historic and contemporary influence of the New Approaches to International Law (NAIL) movement within the context of Europe and America. In particular, the contributions focus on the intellectual product of NAIL's founder, David Kennedy, in relation to three legal streams: human rights, legal history, and the law of war. On the one hand, the volume is valuable reading for a broad audience interested in the current challenges facing global governance, and how critical studies might contribute to innovative intellectual and practice-oriented developments in international law. On the other hand, stemming from a 2010 seminar in Madrid that brought together scholars to discuss David Kennedy's scholarship over the last three decades, the contributions here are a testament to the community and ideas of the NAIL tradition.  The volume includes scholars from a wide field of legal interests and backgrounds.   Professor José María Beneyto is Director of the Institute for European Studies at CEU San Pablo University Madrid, Spain. Professor David Kennedy is Director of the Institute for Global Law and Policy at Harvard Law School, Cambridge, USA.
