In the aftermath of the 2008 bank bailouts, sovereign debt has increased to unprecedented levels. As a result, governments saw their policy room curtailed by the demand for credibility and access to international capital markets. In Greece and Italy, democratically elected officials stepped down from power with the aim of promoting creditworthiness. The Argentine litigation in the United States again brought attention to substantial sway of bondholders over sovereign states.

Location name: 

Sicily, Italy

Organization: 

Pan-European Conference on International Relations

International law is traditionally understood as a juridical means for restraining violence, which disciplines the excesses of state sovereignty. As such, it is imagined as the “other” of power politics which — as human rights activists assert — speaks truth (or justice) to power. International law is both a symptom and cause of the evolution of international society as it has moved beyond power politics as the sole driving force of international affairs. Justifying political decisions in legal terms has become an integral part of foreign policy, and even a ‘key aspect of modern war’.

In his L'histoire comme champ de bataille Enzo Traverso points out that memory as a socially relevant phenomenon appeared widely after 1989. The fall of the Soviet empire and the ensuing defragmentation of the world led to a situation in which a multitude of recollections, hitherto retained only in private, could enter the public space. Social memory became an element of identity and simultaneously an instrument of politics, increasingly encroaching upon the domain of legal discourse.

The Judicialization of International Law - A Mixed Blessing?” Oslo, 10–12 September 2015

In whose name do courts decide? Many domestic courts provide an answer in the
opening words of their decisions. They routinely evoke the source of their legitimacy
right at the start. When it comes to international courts and tribunals, we find nothing
comparable. International courts and tribunals do not say in whose name they speak
the law. What is the source of their legitimacy?
