International Law offers a rigorous yet accessible introduction to public international law for students. Presenting a clearly structured conceptual framework, the text is designed to support understanding by providing a concise, coherent perspective of international law principles and systems at domestic, regional and international levels. In addition to the standard, core material addressed in international law curriculae, the text examines judgments from South African courts and African jurisdictions, and provides a challenging analysis of key, emerging developments which are particularly relevant to the African context. These topics include: International criminal law, protection of individuals against mass atrocities, the use of force against non-state actors, international trade and investment law, international climate change law, legal protection of the environment. Additional teaching and learning resources assist students to master the subject matter, and support the development of advanced academic skills. International Law is suited as core course material for students who are studying public international law as a module of the LLB degree, or at postgraduate level. It is also a useful resource for legal practitioners who may wish to engage with foundational and current principles of the field.
