Book description

Interdisciplinary Perspectives on International Law and International Relations: The State of the Art brings together the most influential contemporary writers in the fields of international law and international relations to take stock of what we know about the making, interpretation and enforcement of international law. The contributions to this volume critically explore what recent interdisciplinary work reveals about the design and workings of international institutions, the various roles played by international and domestic courts, and the factors that enhance compliance with international law. The volume also explores how interdisciplinary work has advanced theoretical understandings of the causes and consequences of the increased legalization of international affairs.


'Interdisciplinary Perspectives on International Law and International Relations is an impressive volume that brings together the leading writers in the fields of international law and international relations to celebrate this development, while also critically assessing the conceptual and empirical contributions of IL/IR to the understanding of international law … Professors Jeffrey Dunoff and Mark Pollack’s anthology proves to be a tremendously valuable contribution to the study of international relations - one that traces the trajectory of IL/IR as a discipline over the past century, provides a comprehensive depiction and analysis of the field as it exists today through the varied analyses of the volume’s authors, and proposes a way forward for the continued development of cross-disciplinary IL/IR scholarship.'

'The present collection brings together the leading scholars writing at the crossroads between the two disciplines to consider and reflect on the current state of interdisciplinary international law and international relations scholarship. The result is a book of high calibre that is not only essential, but also very delightful and enriching reading for scholars and students of international law and international relations.'

'This book is firmly situated at the heart of very important and dynamic debates, and it will certainly help to shape those debates for a coming generation of scholars: what does the international legal system do to international politics, and what does international politics do to the international legal system? These are the key questions.'
