The present collection of essays for Martti Koskenniemi provides a wide-ranging overview of the state of Nordic international legal scholarship. In addition to the more theoretical discussions, it engages with a variety of current debates (such as the war on terrorism, the criminalization of international law and the position of human rights in the European Union, for example). The collection, with a mixture of academics and practitioners, will prove useful to scholars in international law, international relations and related disciplines, as well as officials of states and international organizations.
