A New International Legal Order
A new international legal order (NILO) has progressively infiltrated the traditional scope of international law. The essays contained in this book have been written to commemorate the past ten years of the Xiamen Academy of International Law and the emergence of this NILO. They display a remarkable intellectual vitality and illustrate the new initiatives contributing to a NILO in the realm of international law.
In addition to new concepts of the use of force, boundary disputes and self-determination, and new judicial practices in environmental law, these essays demonstrate a convergence towards a universal value of a globalised world, centred upon human security and reflected in international economic, technological, social and humanitarian cooperation – sources of new tranches of international law. The contributors to this book have provided an in-depth analysis of such cooperation between various branches of international law.
While this book is principally for scholars and students of international law, it is also a valuable reference book for practitioners and foreign affairs officials with an interest in the area.
