Abstract

Inspired in part by 'A History of the World in a 100 Objects', the volume interrogates international law's material culture and everyday life. My chosen object or 'thing' is AIDS. The essay opens by explaining the reason for this potentially controversial choice, before using AIDS to challenge how international law frames the following: crisis; human rights; and law itself.

Keywords: AIDS, HIV/AIDS, crisis, human rights, international law, law, ARVs
