The economic growth of states throughout Asia, South and Central America and Africa is having a profound effect on the dynamics of international relations, with a resulting impact on the operation and development of international law. This edited collection explores uncharted territory in examining how these changes in economic and political power structures impact on the implementation and development of international law, with a particular focus on emerging legal norms and challenges to existing frameworks. Significantly, it draws on the experiences of practitioners in the field to provide a new perspective. The potential impact is significant in terms of the emerging values and norms which international law will need to accommodate and the nature and distribution of the obligations it imposes. The collection will consider the influence of shifting global powers on international law to date, as well as foreshadowing the likely implications for future developments, both in terms of specific international legal issues and the overall character of the international order. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of international relations; international law; international political economy, human rights; and development.
