This text is part of a series which aims to bring together the most significant published journal articles in international law as determined by the editors of each volume in the series.;The proliferation of law, specialist journals, the increase in international materials and the use of the Internet has meant that it is increasingly difficult for students and legal scholars to have access to all the relevant articles. Many valuable older articles are unable to be obtained readily. In addition, each volume contains an informative introduction which provides an overview of the subject matter and justification of why the articles were collected.;This volume includes articles on the sources of international law, relative normativity in international law, human rights as norms of customary international law and universal international law.
