The Role of Ethics in International Law, Donald Earl Childress III, ed., Cambridge University Press, 2011
Pepperdine University Legal Studies Research Paper
The purpose of this volume is to explore what role ethical discourse plays in international law. In so doing, the chapters uniquely explore the role of ethics in both public and private international law. This volume seeks (1) to delineate the role of ethical investigation in creating, sustaining, challenging, and changing international law and (2) to open up a conversation between two related disciplines – public and private international law – that frequently labor in different intellectual vineyards. By examining the role of ethical discourse in international law’s public and private dimensions, it is hoped that this volume will open up new avenues for cross-disciplinary exchange in these important fields and related disciplines.
