Abstract

Constitutionalisation and Fragmentation of International Law can be reconciled with the purpose of promoting the fundamental values already inherent in modern day International Law. Continuing from there, we will have a look at how a potential future system of international law aimed at reconciling these tendencies through an overall public law approach can provide answers to the hard choices put before international lawyers today as well as in the future. This paper is based on a Diploma Thesis in International Law submitted to the Eric Castren Institute of International Law and Human Rights at the Faculty of Law of the University of Helsinki in Summer 2003 for which the author received a Distinction.

Keywords: International Constitutional Law, hierarchy, international law, relative normativity, constitutionalisation, fragmentation
