Example text

Even Higgins, a close follower of McDougal, argues that it is a very fine line between insisting that decisions be taken in accordance with the policy objectives of a liberal, democratic world community and asserting that any action taken by a liberal democracy against a totalitarian nation is lawful. . 164 McDougal’s political apologia, however, must be disentangled from his theoretical jurisprudence (much as with Schmitt). Here, a legal scepticism exclusively in the third sense above – nihilism about law as progressive ‘social engineering’ without doubting its political role – allows us to endorse McDougal’s persuasive dynamic theory of law, without sanctioning his strategy of lending law to American power.

Carl Schmitt I have argued against the formalism implied in the positions that international law is not law, or that it is always, in the last instant, ineffective. Instead, the categories of ‘law’ and ‘politics’ must be problematised, in an attempt to examine the complex interpenetrations of the two. This, however, does not close the door to the possibility of denial, or scepticism, in the third sense discussed above.

This, yet again, concerns the tenacity of the legal form itself. Without an analysis of that legal form, McDougal cannot explain why law exists as a distinct part of the political process. We have returned to the critique levelled at so many of the mainstream writers. Without a theory of the legal form, a jurisprudential system cannot address the basic ontological question of international law.
