About the Authors
  • This book is the first in a series examining how public law and international law intersect in five thematic areas of global significance: sanctions, global health, environment, movement of people and security. Until recently, international and public law have mainly overlapped in discussions on how international law is implemented domestically. This series explores the complex interactions that occur when legal regimes intersect, merge or collide. Sanctions, Accountability and Governance in a Globalised World discusses legal principles which cross the international law/domestic public law divide. What tensions emerge from efforts to apply and enforce law across diverse jurisdictions? Can we ultimately only fill in or fall between the cracks or is there some greater potential for law in the engagement? This book provides insights into international, constitutional and administrative law, indicating the way these intersect, creating a valuable resource for students, academics and practitioners in the field.

    • Examines how sanctions operate in the UN framework and their implementation domestically, making it invaluable to those working within this area
    • Challenges comparative work on accountability and governance, bringing a unique and important resource to administrative lawyers
    • Uses practical examples to illustrate theoretical inquiry into the nature of law
