This contribution does not aim to add to the extensive body of knowledge on the relationship between international and European law, to which the present Volume contributes in such an excellent way. Rather, it raises a meta question by asking to what extent – given the noncontested interrelationship between international and EU law – both disciplines could benefit from each other’s insights. It is argued that to better understand EU law, it would also make sense for students to be confronted with the interface with international law rather than with the mere ‘specialness’ of their object of study; and to better understand international law, it may be useful to keep an eye on the way it develops in and around the EU.
