The Need for a Theory of International Law


Anthony D'Amato


Northwestern University - School of Law

April 5, 2006


Abstract:     
A coherent theory of international law would have explanatory power. It should indicate where international rules come from, how they are changed, and how they are enforced. The theory could usefully employ theoretical advances from other disciplines, such as systems theory, n-person games, network theory, emergence, complexity, and inference to the best explanation.
