The German Law Journal has long served as a forum for timely and innovative commentary on public international law.  The first issue of Volume 19 is representative of that tradition.  We are proud to publish four impressive works from scholars around the world, including Brazil, Northern Ireland, Germany, and Hong Kong.  These theoretically rich articles engage with some of international law’s enduring questions:

  • Arthur Roberto Capella Giannattasio (Brazil)
    The Interaction between International and Domestic Legal Orders: Framing the Debate according to the Post-Modern Condition of International Law
  • Mark P. Hanna (Northern Ireland)
    The Substantive/Procedural Distinction: Law’s Solution to the Problem of Jus Cogens in a World of Sovereign States
  • Ibrahim Kanalan (German)
    Extraterritorial State Obligations Beyond the Concept of Jurisdiction
  • Artem Sergeev (Hong Kong)
    Unilateral Law and Non-State Actors: Exploring a New Paradigm

These contributions add to the GLJ’s deep catalogue of public international law scholarship.  Some highlights from the archive of special issues in the field of public international law include:
