The Canadian Council on International law was founded in 1972 by a group of
Canada's leading and most distinguished scholars and practitioners in
international law. The Council supports the development and exchange of ideas
amongst a community of persons interested in international law with particular
focus on the Canadian perspective on international matters. To this end, one
of the major activities of the Council is to hold an annual conference.
This years conference proceedings comprise a collection of essays written by
leading academics and practitioners on the theme of the effectiveness of
international law. A wide range of subject areas are addressed, including
international trade law, intervention, private international law,
international human rights law, compliance methodology, women and
international law, international criminal law, international environmental
law, and terrorism.
This work will be of value to international lawyers in both the public and
private sphere, legal scholars, and those interested in international
