This short paper is an attempt to synthesize the debate on "globalization and international law". This is an issue that has been taken increasingly seriously by international lawyers, as globalization threatens to challenge the very meaning, status and nature of the international legal order. The paper argues that globalization has had a significant impact on international law but that, in turn, international law could have a significant impact on globalization.
