    Editorial Board: Fausto Pocar, University of Milan, Italy and ICTY, The Hague, the Netherlands, Christian Tams, University of Glasgow, UK, Nigel D. White, University of Nottingham, UK, Jacob Katz Cogan, University of Cincinnati, US and Hilary Charlesworth, Australian National University

    This important new series will present high quality monographs which analyse current thinking and research across the field of International Law, rigorously examining key concepts as well as provoking debate and questions for further research. Some volumes will draw on insights from disciplines other than law, such as economics and politics, in an attempt to arrive at a genuinely inter-disciplinary perspective. Seeking to attract original thinking and new, challenging research, proposals are encouraged that primarily engage with new and previously under-developed themes in the field, or alternatively offer an innovative analysis of areas of uncertainty in the existing law. Bringing together work from both established authors and a new generation of scholars, the Elgar International Law series will play an important role in the development of thinking in the field.

  1. Expert Laws of War

    Expert Laws of War

    Anton O. Petrov
    Over recent decades, international humanitarian law has been shaped by the omnipresence of so-called expert manuals. Astute and engaging, this discerning book provides a comprehensive account of these black letter rules and commentaries produced by private expert groups and demonstrates why the general acceptance of these expert manuals is largely unjustified. The author innovatively links interdisciplinary insights to the needs of military lawyers in practice, showing the pitfalls of relying on private manuals as arguable restatements and interpretations of the law 'as it is'.

  3. Understanding Jus Cogens in International Law and International Legal Discourse

    Understanding Jus Cogens in International Law and International Legal Discourse

    Ulf Linderfalk
    Whilst the concept of jus cogens has grown increasingly more important in public international law, lawyers remain hugely divided both over what precisely confers a jus cogens status on a norm, and what this conferral implies in terms of legal consequences. In this ground-breaking book, Ulf Linderfalk clearly and succinctly explores the reasons for this divide in order to facilitate more rational and productive future discourse. Learn More

    The UN Security Council and the International Criminal Court

    Gabriel M. Lentner
    Drawing on both theory and practice, this insightful book offers a comprehensive analysis of the relationship between the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and the International Criminal Court (ICC), centred on the referral mechanism. Arguing that the legal nature of the referral must be conceptualized as a conferral of powers from the UNSC to the ICC, the author explores the complex legal relationship between interacting international organizations.

  6. The Paradigm of State Consent in the Law of Treaties

    The Paradigm of State Consent in the Law of Treaties

    Vassilis Pergantis
    The paradigm of state consent in the law of treaties is increasingly under attack. Which narratives on the treaty concept legitimize or delegitimize the challenges to the consensualist paradigm? Which areas of the law of treaties are more concerned by these attacks? What are the ensuing risks? From consent to be bound to treaty succession, and from treaty denunciation to reservations, this book offers a tour de force on the paradigm of state consent, its challenges, and their politics.
