This timely Research Handbook examines the dynamic and interdependent relationship between law and diplomacy in the contemporary international system. Through accounts of the actual practice of international law and diplomacy, it provides insights into how international law and relations operate and examines the complex relationship.

An impressive selection of contributors provides analyses of bilateral and multilateral diplomacy in international law making, interpretation and adjudication. These accounts include examinations of legal diplomacy, reforms within international organisations, judicial diplomacy, and the role of non-state actors – including NGOs and corporations – in the international system. Chapters consist of case studies of treaty negotiations, multilateral legal reform, and the resolution of disputes under formal and informal international legal mechanisms. This Handbook also assesses the relative roles of lawyers, diplomats and lawyer-diplomats within the international system, and the ethical framework for their professional conduct.

This Handbook will be helpful to advanced undergraduate and law students, as well as researchers, practitioners and policy makers interested in multilateralism, diplomacy, international law, international organisations, civil society, and the ethics of law and diplomacy.
Critical Acclaim
‘A distinguished roster of scholars and diplomats tells the story of how law and diplomacy lace together to create contemporary international affairs. This book is the ideal place to see behind the scenes where professionals in foreign offices, international institutions, and academia draw together legal and diplomatic resources. It is an exemplary collection for scholars of international law and politics.’
– Ian Hurd, Northwestern University, US
