Do international institutions free us from our colonialist history, or do they perpetuate it? This episode takes a critical look at international legal institutions through the lens of Third World Approaches to International Law, a legal movement explained by Thamil Ananthavinayagan, professor of international law at Griffith College in Dublin. Then, University of Hawaii futurist and political scientist Jairus Grove discusses the history of global violence and his new book Savage Ecology: War and Geopolitics at the End of the World. This series is produced in cooperation with the Common Good Foundation, and sponsored by the World Peace Through Law section of the Washington State Bar Association.
