This chapter’s chief goal is to propose a research agenda into how the economic specificities of different historical periods influence international law, and how the latter affects the global economy differently depending upon the characteristics of the period in question. The chapter first considers some Marxist and neo-Marxist theoretical frameworks of political economy; it focuses in particular on the École de la regulation, Social Structure of Accumulation Theory, neo-Gramscian critics of international political economy, and neo-Marxist scholars who work on questions relating to the rate of profit, overproduction, and over-accumulation. The chapter then discusses how some of the relevant portions of these theoretical frameworks might be integrated into a comprehensive and critical framework for analysing international law.
