This chapter examines the postcolonial nature and content of international law in India, focusing on the writings on history and civilization. It analyses academic treatment of international law taking into account factors such as global convergence of policies to formulate uniform substantive and procedural structures of law and the shrinking policy space for the states. It also identifies key issues that changed the Indian academic thinking on international law, including trade-related aspects of intellectual property rights, international environmental law and climate change.

Keywords:   international law, India, history, civilization, global governance, Indian academic thinking, intellectual property rights, international environmental law, climate change
