Discussion Paper: “The Concept of International Law” by John Linarelli

We have posted a new discussion paper on international law and moral philosophy: “The Concept of International Law” by John Linarelli. This very thought provoking piece will be presented an ASIL International Legal Theory Interest Group panel at the Annual ASIL Meeting later this week. Linarelli offers a fresh take on what the enterprise of analytical jurisprudence can do for international law. He examines connected concepts of “normativity”, “validity” and “justice” and puts forth, for discussion, a contractualist account of global justice.
