This Research Handbook examines the complex relationship between international law and domestic legal systems. An interdisciplinary range of experts analyse the topic from historical, conceptual, critical and doctrinal perspectives, setting the tone for future reflections on the development of the international legal order.

Chapter authors critically discuss the evolution of core understandings of the relationship between international and domestic law, and how this has been affected by specific actors and contexts in a changing global order, particularly imperialism, decolonisation, the post-Cold War era, and more recent trends, such as geopolitical shifts and the rise of populism. They examine concepts such as monism, dualism and pluralism, as well as the legal techniques and doctrines employed to govern the relationship, including approaches to treaty making, constitutional protection and conventionality control. The Research Handbook ultimately champions fresh perspectives on interlinkages between the international and the domestic in a multipolar world.

The Research Handbook on International Law and Domestic Legal Systems is a vital resource for students, scholars and practitioners of public international law, constitutional law, comparative law, and legal theory as well as readers with a background in international relations.
Critical Acclaim
‘This superb Handbook manages the difficult feat of providing fresh insights into the complex and contested relationships between international and domestic legal systems. The chapters skillfully integrate theoretical and doctrinal perspectives and, read together, greatly enrich our understandings of rapidly changing interactions among national, regional, and multilateral legal orders.’
