Comparative International Law

CO-AUTHORS Anthea Roberts
Oxford University Press


By definition, international law, once agreed upon and consented to, applies to all parties equally. This book explains that states at times adhere to similar, and at other times, adopt different interpretations of the same international norms and standards. This work achieves three objectives. The first is to show that international law is not a monolith. The second is to map the cross-country similarities and differences in international legal norms in different fields of international law, as well as their application and interpretation with regards to geographic differences.
