This introductory chapter begins with a brief discussion of the rise of neoliberalism and its impact on international law. It then sets out the two main arguments advanced by the book: first, on the impact that global political struggles around neoliberalism have had on international law (and vice versa); and, secondly, the kind of professional projects international lawyers can and should equip themselves to pursue in a world ‘after neoliberalism’. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords: neoliberalism; neoliberal ideas; international law; WTO
