Abstract

This paper discusses the impact of globalisation in its different dimension for public international law as a distinct branch of the law. Arguing from history, its main assertions are that public international law is just entering a new phase in its history in which it will probably expand rather than retract.

Keywords: international law, globalisation

JEL Classification: K33
