Research Handbook on the Theory and Practice of International Lawmaking (Hardback)
Language: English . Brand New Book. The global landscape has changed profoundly over the past decades. As a result, the making of international law and the way we think about it has become more and more diversified. This Research Handbook offers a comprehensive guide to the theory and practice of international lawmaking today. It takes stock at both the conceptual and the empirical levels of the instruments, processes, and actors involved in the making of international law. The editors have taken an approach which carefully combines theory and practice in order to provide both an overview and a critical reflection of international lawmaking. Comprehensive and well-structured, the book contains essays by leading scholars on key aspects of international lawmaking and on lawmaking in the main issue areas. Attention is paid to classic processes as well as new developments and shades of normativity. This timely and authoritative Handbook will be a valuable resource for academics, students, legal practitioners, diplomats, government and international organization officials as well as civil society representatives.

A propos du livre :
Critique: 'If any subject requires a guide, it is international lawmaking. Puzzling even to the experienced, yet critical to a proper understanding of contemporary order, lawmaking encompasses a startling array of participants, practices, subjects, doctrines, terms, institutions, theories, and goals across and at all levels of international society. Equal to the challenge, this Research Handbook cuts through the confusion and comprehensively and inclusively organizes and makes sense of the theory and practice of international lawmaking today.' - Jacob Katz Cogan, University of Cincinnati College of Law, US; 'Based on a more or less inductive approach, the essays brought together in this Research Handbook together draw a coherent picture of the current state of affairs of international law-making. They do so by studying the various sources of international law; the role of a multitude of possible law-makers, and by exploring several deeply regulated branches of international law. The result is a very useful handbook on how and by whom international law is made.'- Jan Klabbers, University of Helsinki, Finland; 'A fascinating collection of essays that reveal the multiple facets of lawmaking in an increasingly interconnected world. In addition to the role played by States, numerous institutional and judicial actors now contribute to lawmaking. In charting these developments, this book provides a rich analytical appraisal of the manifold normative processes in the contemporary international legal order.' - Laurence Boisson de Chazournes, University of Geneva, Switzerland; 'Despite much recent scholarly attention, the "making of international law" remains a fairly mysterious process. This collection of essays puts together the pieces of the puzzle. Combining inductive inquiries and theoretical reflections, it takes stock and highlights avenues for future research.' - Christian J. Tams, University of Glasgow, UK
