Guilfoyle on Mieville, the Social Construction of Place and Law, and Transnationality in Contemporary International Law

Douglas Guilfoyle, Monash University Faculty of Law, has published Reading the City and the City as an International Lawyer: Reflections on Territoriality, Jurisdiction and Transnationality at 4 London Review of International Law 195 (2016). Here is the abstract.
This essay uses China Miéville’s crime/speculative fiction novel to reflect on the social construction of place and law, and the role of transnationality in contemporary international law. In particular, it considers the role of international law in a world of interpenetrating jurisdictional orders not closely tied to exclusive territorial control.
