Regional Approaches to International law




Series: Whose Global Law? Comparative, Regional and Methodological Lenses

International law is often viewed as a universal system that applies in the same way across different countries and regions of the world. However, this view is increasingly being challenged by the fact that regions of the world perceive international law differently and have developed different practices towards international law. How do we understand the effect that regional approaches are having in the international legal landscape? What are the historical, political, economic and other reasons that drive regional approaches to international law? What are the methodological challenges faced when examining such regional approaches? This panel, comprising of experts on Russian and Chinese approaches to international, will discuss these and other cross-cutting issues.
