Legalization and World Politics
Special Issue of International Organization
Exploring the intersection of international law and world politics from the viewpoints of the two disciplines.
In recent years, international law has become more relevant to world politics as rules have become more precise and obligatory and the delegation of dispute resolution to third parties more frequent. Political scientists have done significant work on international institutions, and international legal scholars have developed politically sophisticated ways of examining the law. In Legalization and World Politics, well-known political scientists and legal scholars offer a joint exploration of changes both in the world and in the two disciplines.
