The House of Wisdom Podcast has recently talked to Dr. Inge van Hulle about her new book “Britain and International Law in West Africa: The Practice of Empire”.
"Anthea Roberts asked the question how international is international law? When we look back at the development of international law within West Africa during the 19th century we realise there were many voices involved, not just Britain.
In this episode, we talk to Dr. Inge Van Hulle about her new book - Britain and International Law in West Africa: The Practice of Empire. We discuss the influence ex colonial powers have had on the development of the international legal system, changing narratives about our perceptions of West Africa, and whether we need to rethink how we teach and research international law.
Dr. Inge Van Hulle is Assistant Professor of Legal History at Tilburg University, The Netherlands. Prior to joining Tilburg University she worked as a PhD research assistant at the department of Roman law and legal history at KU Leuven where she obtained her PhD in 2016. Her area of expertise is International Legal Theory and International Legal History, in particular colonialism and West Africa."
