Centrality of the concept of sovereignty in the development of International Law


Short Biography
Khalid (Soran) Khedri is a PhD candidate at the University of Birmingham under the supervision of Prof. Robert Cryer and Dr Mohammad Shahab. Khalid is working on the centrality of the modern concept of sovereignty to the development of international law. He argues that neither sovereignty nor colonialism were central to the development of international law, but rather, that international law is a product of the ‘pathos of distance’ as described by Nietzsche, and that debtor-creditor relations are the most appropriate way of understanding the historical relations between European and Non-European societies. Khalid holds an LLB from University of Southampton, LLM in International Criminal Law and Practice from London South Bank University, MA-Res in legal theory from Queen Mary University, London. He speaks four languages fluently: Kurdish, Arabic, Persian and English. He has keen interest in Public International Law, Legal Theory, Legal History, Political Philosophy, and International Criminal Law and International Human Rights Law. He is a commentator on Iranian foreign and domestic policies and on the Kurdish issue in the Middle East.
