In this brief thinking piece, I reflect on the rising currency of ‘persons’ in international legal scholarship. Incipient interest in the people at the heart of the legal order has recently shifted from highly visible elites to a wider range of more unusual suspects, including legal clerks, social movement actors, or even material objects. This ongoing ‘re-personalisation’ of international law raises new, overlooked epistemic and ethical challenges for scholars.
