Tams: The 'International Community' as a Legal Concept

Christian J. Tams (Univ. of Glasgow - Law) has posted The 'International Community' as a Legal Concept (in Fundamental Concepts of International Law, Jean d'Aspremont & Sahib Singh eds., forthcoming). Here's the abstract:
The paper analyses the omnipresent notion of an 'international community'. It offers a succinct survey of international legal approaches to that concept; highlights the relationship between the international community and international law; and traces the impact of the community concept on the development of illustrative areas of international law (collective security, State responsibility, etc).
