International Law in World Politics

Shirley V. Scott (Author)
Synopsis Terrorist Attacks. Un sanctions. The creation of the International Criminal Court. The war on Iraq. In each of these headline events, the complex relationship of International law and world politics comes into play. International Law in World Politics introduces the concepts, the rules, and the functioning of international law in a way that is accessible to students of political science. Scott covers such core topics as the nature of legal argument, the negotiation and implementation of multilateral treaties, and the place of the United Nations, other intergovernmental organizations, and non state actors in the international legal system. Equally important, she connects the actual content of laws dealing with, for example, human rights, the use of force, the environment, and genocide to current issues the problems. Case studies within the chapters bring the real world of world politics to life. Covering the full range of this essential subfield of IR, this new text effectively explains the role that international law plays in the changing arena of world politics.
