International Courts, Supranational Courts and the Rule of Law

New from Edward Elgar is The Contribution of International and Supranational Courts to the Rule of Law, edited by Geert De Baere and Jan Wouters:
International and supranational courts are increasingly central to the development of a transnational rule of law. Except for insiders, the functioning and impact of these courts remain largely unknown. Addressing this gap, this innovative book examines the manner in which and the extent to which international courts and tribunals contribute to the rule of law at the national, regional, and international levels.
