The historical turn in international has been followed by various subdisciplinary turns to, for example, the history of human rights law, international humanitarian law and international criminal law.

This roundtable will reflect on the current state of the art, its gaps and potential avenues for future research, in particular with respect to interdisciplinarity, periodization, method, the role of non-state actors and eurocentrism.
