Dupuy & Traisbach: Taking International Law Seriously: On the German Approach to International Law

Pierre-Marie Dupuy (European Univ. Institute - Law) & Knut Traisbach (European Univ. Institute - Law) have posted Taking International Law Seriously. On the German Approach to International Law. Here's the abstract:
This short article outlines the systemic characteristics of what is identified here as the German approach to international law. Starting from the post-WW II situation of German legal scholarship, the paper describes a holistic approach to international law as a unified legal system which is characterized by both a true commitment to the rule of law and a constructive vision of the International Community based on constitutional form.
