Byrnes, Hayashi, & Michaelsen: International Law in the New Age of Globalization

Andrew Byrnes (Univ. of New South Wales - Law), Mika Hayashi (Kobe Univ. - Law) & Christopher Michaelsen (Univ. of New South Wales - Law) have published International Law in the New Age of Globalization (Martinus Nijhoff Publishers 2013). The table of contents is here. Here's the abstract:
This collection brings together a series of essays which address some of the challenges that globalization poses to the international legal order. The book examines the interaction of globalization and international law through four sub-themes: the adaptation of classical international legal tools to regulate and adjudicate community interests and conflicts in the era of globalization; coordinating dialogues and governance strategies within and between international legal systems and institutions; globalization and the diversification of actors; and the exposure of State sovereignty to private actors and the need to preserve the regulatory powers of States. The volume will be of interest to international law scholars, practitioners and students, as well as to those working in the fields of international relations and globalization.
