The first part of the chapter examines the phenomenon of hybridization of the social sciences. It also highlights the intellectual and pedagogical promises of both interdisciplinarity and trans-disciplinarity in international human rights law. The second part reviews the intellectual roots and postulates of a number of schools of critical international thought and their influence on the study of international human rights law. The conclusion reflects on the contribution of critical approaches to interdisciplinary and critical-knowledge creation processes in human rights and international law.
