This special feature in the TWAIL Review was inspired by the conference ‘The League of Nations Decentred: Law, Crises and Legacies’ convened by Anne Orford, Kathryn Greenman, Luís Bogliolo and Ntina Tzouvala and hosted at Melbourne Law School from 17 to 19 July 2019. On the centenary of the founding of League of Nations, the conference gathered nearly 30 scholars in international law, international relations and history from around the world to think critically about the League with a view from the Global South. We are thrilled that the TWAIL Review is hosting this feature, not only because of its commitment to ‘productive engagement with international law through thinking by and with the sensibilities of Global South’, but also because TWAIL scholars have played such a central role in the surge of critical studies reappraising the League and its legacy in the last two decades.
