An Interview with Celso Amorim, Former Brazilian Foreign Minister
Juliano Fiori

At any rate, so far as I am concerned, I intend to support it, not because it is palatable, but simply because I

practice accepted as law’ is a porous fiction created by some anthropomorphism that could undermine the entire international legal order by giving courts and tribunals immense power to create customary international law as needed. In doing so, it draws on the idea that the lawmaking process constitutes a consciously coordinated process within each a State by casting the light to the various actors behind the ‘statehood’.

In this book we cannot claim to speak for all women, but offer our own particular account of our discipline by casting pebbles into its waters. 121 We hope that it will provoke reflection and debate among all those interested in the future of international law
