International Law in Public Debate

In her book, International Law in Public Debate (Cambridge University Press, 2021), Madelaine argues that public debates in the language of international law have produced a popular form of international law that matters for international practice. In this seminar, Madelaine will give an account of her book’s argument, drawing on examples from the Australian public debates over the 2003 Iraq War and over Australia’s military intervention in Vietnam in 1965/66. Through this account, Madelaine re-wires traditional accounts of who gets to ‘speak’ international law.
