International Law, Regulation and Resistance presents a critique of international law through an interdisciplinary analysis and engagement with the emerging literature from critical legal geography. The book draws upon existing critiques of international law to examine how different spaces affect the processes and substance of law.

As well as drawing upon feminist and third world critiques that highlight the importance of looking for 'alternative' sites of norm production to counter the hegemonic tendencies of international legal regulation, key insights are provided by an examination of the literature on civil society actors (particularly in the context of feminist protest and activism) and regulation, which highlights the value of 'soft power' and connects norm production more broadly with social spaces and political processes. The book goes on to explores the ways in which our assumptions about law and legal institutions can shape and control the physical world and the organisation of space, in order to discover ways in which the complexities and diversities of international law could be embraced. This book will be useful to those people with an interest in international law, legal geography, international relations, globalisation and regulatory theory.
