Overview

The purpose of this book series is to clarify and improve the theoretical foundations of international law. Too often the progressive development and implementation of international law has foundered on confusion about first principles. This series will raise the level of public and scholarly discussion about the structure and purposes of the world legal order and how best to achieve global justice through law.

The idea for this series grows out of the International Legal Theory project of the American Society of International Law. Each year for the past decade, the ASIL has devoted special attention to a different aspect of international law and has invited scholars and practitioners to discuss the theoretical basis of such topics as customary international law, humanitarian law, and human rights. The ASIL Studies in International Legal Theory series will deepen this exchange by publishing scholarly monographs and edited volumes of essays considering subjects in international legal theory.
