The Canadian Council on International law was founded in 1972 by a group of Canada's leading and most distinguished scholars and practitioners in international law. The Council supports the development and exchange of ideas amongst a community of persons interested in international law with particular focus on the Canadian perspective on international matters. To this end, one of the major activities of the Council is to hold an annual conference.
This years conference proceedings comprise a collection of essays written by leading academics and practitioners on the theme of the effectiveness of international law. A wide range of subject areas are addressed, including international trade law, intervention, private international law, international human rights law, compliance methodology, women and international law, international criminal law, international environmental law, and terrorism.
This work will be of value to international lawyers in both the public and private sphere, legal scholars, and those interested in international relations.
