The Idea of Effective International Law: Continuing the Discussion

  • Vijay Padmanabhan (a1)

Extract

The joint 108th American Society of International Law (ASIL) Annual Meeting and 76th International Law Association (ILA) Biennial Conference was organized under the theme “The Effectiveness of International Law.” In conjunction with this theme, the ASIL Legal Theory Interest Group hosted a panel discussion exploring the theoretical dimensions of the concept of “effectiveness” as understood in international law. Panelists discussed three related questions:

  1. (1)Is the effectiveness of international law an empirical question measured through evaluating compliance with international legal norms?
  2. (2)What conceptions of effectiveness might exist beyond compliance? Could such conceptions be captured in theoretical or moral terms?
  3. (3)Why is international law concerned with effectiveness at all?
