Fairness in International Law and Institutions

Thomas M. Franck


This book offers a compelling view of the future of international legal reasoning and legal theory. It offers a critical analysis of the prescriptive norms and institutions of modern international law and argues that international law has the capacity to advance, in practice, the abstract social values shared by the community of states and persons.

Keywords: international legal reasoning, legal theory, abstract social values, international law
