Preface to a Critique of International Legal Ideology
This chapter begins by discussing the concept of ideology and indicates where this conception comes from and how it relates to other familiar notions of ideology. It then explains why, in light of this conception, declarations of the ‘end of ideology’ cannot be accepted and, indeed, only confirm the persistence of ideology. The chapter considers some starting points that may be used for the analysis of ideology. These correspond of modes in which ideology can often be shown to operate and discursive strategies typically deployed. The final part of the chapter discusses the aims of the ideology critique.
