TOWARDS THE INTERNATIONAL RULE OF LAW: ESSAYS IN INTEGRATED CONSTITUTIONAL THEORY

Philip Allott

Integrated constitutional theory explores the problems and the possibilities of extrapolating the rule of law from the national to the global level. And it explores the problems and possibilities of the intrusion of international law and international institutions into law and government at the national level.

Towards the International Rule of Law contains fourteen essays, some of them published here for the first time, by a leading international legal philosopher, covering many of the most fundamental aspects of the emerging integration of the national and international constitutional orders.

The essays offer new and profound insights to stimulate the thinking of all those who need to think about the impact of the globalising world on national constitutional development and to all those who are seeking to integrate national constitutional experience into the making of the new international legal order.

Philip Allott is Professor Emeritus of International Public Law at Cambridge University, where he is a Fellow of Trinity College.
