Natalie Oman
Position
Visiting Research Fellow

While at the Centre, Natalie will be working on part of a larger project that aims to make the classical sources of international law “do new work in the present." This project reinterprets these sources – which include customary international law, general principles, and treaties – from within the dominant occidental paradigm of international law, in order to reveal and challenge the foundational assumptions of an exclusionary system of international law built upon the non-recognition of Indigenous and other nonstate peoples. The theoretical orientation of the project draws upon legal pluralism, TWAIL, and the writings of Wittgenstein, Slattery, and Borrows.
