This paper argues that a particular critical conceptualization based on a focus on Third World peoples, their resistance and their histories offered by TWAIL holds immense potential for formulating alternative international legal theories, in general, and human rights theories in particular. However, it further argues that this potential remains unexplored and cannot be realized unless the search for alternative epistemologies also becomes an integral part of TWAIL.
