m_lril_5_1cover‘Legal terrain—the political materiality of territory’ – my London Review of International Law lecture is now published. The journal requires subscription, but if you’d like a copy and can’t access through an institution, please email me.

This lecture sketches the contours of a political -legal theory of terrain. It argues that terrain is a useful concept to think the materiality of territory. Terrain is where the geopolitical and the geophysical meet, and it is therefore a helpful concept to make political -legal understandings of territory better account for the complexities of the geophysical.

The video of the lecture is also available online.
