What is Critical Research in International Law? Celebrating Structuralism


This essay is a friendly response to the colloquium on From Apology to Utopia (FATU). It restates the way critical research examines the exercise of power through analysis of (legal) language. Attention is directed especially to the empowering and enchanting effects of the law. The main point has to do with the continuing power of structuralism as a form of legal analysis.
