    Abstract

    This article transposes Bourdieu’s description of a ‘juridical field’ to the cognate notion of an ‘advocacy field’, which I examine through the case of international lawyers working in Palestine. The discussion combines structural accounts of neoliberal state-building with individual narratives of advocates in Palestine to present a study on the dynamic nature of international legal discourse as grounded practice.
