Re-Imagining the International Legal Order 

Launching in June 2023

International law is usually conservative, lawyers and judges do not like change, they emphasize consistency, stability and predictability as the major advantages of the law. Even legal scholars often do not dare to challenge the status quo, to suggest adopting new, and even amending current laws, advocating just to focus on the implementation of what already exists. This collection stands different. It shares the authors’ discomfort with the present legal order and some of its institutions and courts, and dives into either a corrective, or a profound re-imagination of these, so that they can address better the rising global challenges. Leading experts in their area present their new and cutting-edge perspectives. Divided into six parts, the volume paints a vast yet solid thematic landscape of unique and critical approaches. The book invites and allows for a deep engagement with a wide range of opinions from across the world. It enables a free, courageous, and detached from the endless feasibility scepticism, the reimagining of the international legal order. The work will be a fascinating reading for students, academics and researchers working in the areas of International Law and International Relations.
