International Law in a Changing World

“For better or worse, international law is confronting a period of profound change.”
American Society of International Law

In honour of the 109th annual meeting of the American Society of International Law, we have created a collection of free journal articles and online resources, as well as a specially selected list of books. This collection focuses on ASIL’s conference theme: ‘Adapting to a Rapidly Changing World’, and is designed to be a companion to this year’s meeting. Prepare for the conference with this collection, or experience the excitement and debate from afar.
