British And Canadian Perspectives on International Law
Christopher Peter Michael Waters
Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 2006 - Law - 407 pages
"British and Canadian Perspectives on International Law" examines the impact of public international law on the United Kingdom's and Canada's domestic legal systems. It also analyses the contributions of British and Canadian practice to the development of international norms. Topics addressed include international criminal law, international humanitarian law, human rights and human security, asylum, trade, jurisdiction, 'reception law' and media portrayals of international law. Whereas international law scholarship usually takes a global, regional or national approach, this book's chapters are written by leading scholars and practitioners from both countries and provide unique comparative views. While there remains much in common between the two states' understandings of international law, recent developments have shown significant points of departure.
