What is international law? What are its possibilities and limits in a world in which rules are pervasive and deeply institutionalised and, yet, might often seems to make right?

 

The Politics of International Law provides an advanced introduction to the role of law in contemporary international affairs. Through a case study-driven analysis of topics such as human rights, self-determination, the use of force, global environmental governance, global trade governance, and international criminal justice, the book elucidates the interaction between international law and international politics, demonstrating that one cannot be understood without the other.
