Emergencies and Crisis - Transnational Legal Discourse on Race and Empire

2/25/2020; 61 minutes

Emergency law permits states to derogate from globally agreed upon norms of human rights. While some rights cannot be suppressed, states still use emergency law to justify policies that reproduce inherently racialized colonial logics, including within the anti-terrorism frame. Panelists reflect on the analytical benefit of combining TWAIL (Third World Approaches to International Law) and CRT (Critical Race Theory) in scholarship on emergencies and crisis.
