New Perspectives on the Divide Between National and International Law

Oxford University Press, 2007

K302.N49 2007


This book aims to contribute to the understanding of the relationship between the international legal order, and the domestic legal orders of over 190 sovereign states. The traditional understanding is the existence a strict separation between the international legal order and domestic legal orders. Processes of legal globalization and internationalization have made this relationship much more complex. Forced by the pressures of interdependence, states have allowed international bodies to oversee and sometimes even implement and enforce domestic legislation. At the same time, increasing cross-border flows of services, goods and capital, mobility, and communication have further undermined any stable notion of what is national and what is international.
