And Grace, W. (1997). 28 A Foucauldian Approach to International Law adopt a transgressive approach that would incorporate not only a variety of views, but acknowledge the role and influence of the various actors. The purpose in engaging in this approach is not to discern the law as such but to account for the ongoing changes and developments as evidenced by the continuing discourses of the various actors. As will be discussed in the ensuing chapters, the problems noted thus far within international legal theory, principally objective normativity and concreteness, are (naturally) reflected in the formation and application of international law.
Similarly concerning an instrumental understanding; recognition will not be tied solely to the state decision but also involve factoring in the surrounding circumstances that are meant to influence and at times even bind a state to recognize an entity. Yet, there is more to consider when invoking Foucault within the realm of recognition. What has been asserted thus far merely reflects any form of process-oriented approach to international law or just describes the fact that some form of legitimating process is occurring between and among domestic and international actors.
21 Recognition seems linked to the circumstances and surrounding events, and the role accorded recognition (facilitative or instrumental) by the recognizing state. For example as interdependence increases and there is greater reliance or reference to the international process, the effect of recognition and its varying degrees will have heightened importance. An entity’s capacity will not only be called into question internally, but on the international plane as well, where the capacity for full or, limited, participation can have deep ranging effects.
