Abstract

Is there a distinctively Latin American way of understanding global public order? How have Latin American international lawyers reflected upon alternative global designs and their implications for the region? This Article probes the ways in which Latin American international lawyers have used international law in light of their own particular context and within a constrained set of available legal, doctrinal, and historical materials. At the same time, as part of a counterbalancing and decentering critique of international law, the aim of this Article is to reinterpret these uses and practices as constituting a distinctively regional approach or tradition of international legal thinking

Keywords: History of International law, Latin America.
