Product Description

Readers who want to explore the processes of international lawmaking through an interdisciplinary approach and problem pedagogy will welcome this International Law Norms, Actors, Process: A Problem-Oriented Approach casebook from an outstanding author team. The authors lead students from fundamental to sophisticated topics, through 14 chapters organized into six parts:

Problem approach, using real-life examples to illustrate key topics such as state formation (the former Yugoslavia), corporations as international legal actors (the apparel industry in developing states), constructing an environmental regime (protecting ozone layer), the tensions between trade and environmental politics (the tuna-dolphin problem), and responding to uses of force (the Gulf War);
Emphasis on the creation of implementation, and interpretation of international norms;
Interdisciplinary materials, incorporating perspectives from economics, political science, and critical and feminist legal studies;
Coverage of cutting-edge topics, including International Criminal Law; Environmental Law and regulation, and trade and investment;
