Collected courses of the Xiamen Academy of International Law ; 8.
A new international legal order (NILO) has progressively infiltrated the traditional scope of international law. Lectures delivered in the last ten years of the Xiamen Academy of International Law?s summer programmes have recorded the emergence of this NILO. The essays contained in this book display a remarkable intellectual vitality and illustrate the new initiatives contributing to an NILO in the realm of international law. 0In addition to new concepts of the use of force, boundary disputes and self-determination, and new judicial practices in environmental law, these essays demonstrate a convergence towards a universal value of a globalised world, centred upon human security and reflected in international economic, technological, social and humanitarian cooperation - sources of new tranches of international law. The contributors to this book have provided an in-depth analysis of such cooperation between various branches of international law.
