Abstract

An American regionalist perspective of international law surged in the nineteenth century and came to its highpoint in the early twentieth century as a “Latin American International Law.” This paper proposes a short but critical review of some of the arguments, texts and events that lawyers used to construct the history and the idea of this particular field of international law.

Keywords: Latin America, international law, history
