About this item

This work for advanced students and scholars collects seven essays from lectures given as part of editor Raimond Gaita’s Wednesday Lecture series, held at the University of Melbourne. Contributors in international law and political science consider the goals and limits of international law and delve into the ethical complexity of politics. To begin, an 18-page prelude offers a wide-ranging discussion of morality, law, and politics, with examples from Australia. The 10-page introduction outlines four conceptions of international law: anti-hegemonic, aspirational, apologetic, and critical, and looks at how they are used in the seven essays. The essays themselves deal with areas including international criminal court, climate treaty law, and the international legal history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The final chapter tackles the universality of international criminal law and the idea of a common humanity. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
