Thanks for the live-streaming: it was the first time I’ve used this service! Near the end, I think Luban (mistakenly) thought Kevin was committing something like the genetic fallacy with regard to his discussion of the origins of international law, but I simply saw it as a reminder of the fact that international criminal law still reflects or betrays its colonialist origins (although this is not true in quite the same sense or way if we trace its normative project and conceptual beginnings to the history of natural law proper), a comment which need not deny the reality of “universal” principles enshrined in international law (criminal or otherwise).
