Politics and law appear deeply entwined in contemporary international relations. Leading scholars accordingly advance a new perspective on the politics of international law in this volume. They redefine the nature of politics and demonstrate how modern politics has conditioned the nature of international law. This new perspective is illustrated through case studies of the use of force, climate change, landmines, migrant rights, the International Criminal Court, the Kosovo bombing campaign, international financial institutions, and global governance.
