This paper traces the origins of Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL) to a conference held in 1997, and explores the Vision Statement that was circulated among participants at that gathering. It focuses on the relationship of TWAIL to earlier Third World scholarship on international law, and argues that TWAIL should be seen as a part of a Third World tradition of international law scholarship rather than the overarching framework into which all Third World scholarship can be fit.
Keywords: Third World Approaches to International LAW (TWAIL); TWAIL history; TWAIL Vision Statement
