Finally, Keal notes that natural law interpretations of international law were replaced by legal positivism by the nineteenth century. 38 As Henry Wheaton remarked in Elements of International Law: Is there a uniform law of nations? There certainly is not the same one for all the nations and states of the world. 40 International law could also play an important role as the handmaiden of imperialist expansion. Keene notes that Grotius provided two legal justiﬁcations for appropriating territory.
53 However, these dualities of International Society discussed above seem curiously to drop out in the English School’s portrayal of the expansion of European International Society. 54 The ‘achievements of the West’ (including the institutions of International Society) and the English School’s implicit conﬁdence in them ‘supply a universal yardstick by which to assess the degree of development of other societies’ within English School accounts,55 and this results in depicting the expansion of the Society as a global spread of ‘progressive’ elements of International Society (particularly international law and European-style diplomacy) that promote order and coexistence.
Although the English School scholars are correct in their claims that the institutions of European International Society have found widespread recognition, this again does not mean that their adoption by nonWestern states was somehow an unproblematic process. Imperialism and the expansion of European International Society The second shortcoming of conventional accounts of non-European states’ entry into European International Society follows from the last point above. Because English School scholars have tended to see the expansion of the Society as a progressive development, they have not adequately investigated the role of imperialism in this process.
