Lesaffer on Roman and International Law

Randall Lesaffer, Tilburg Law School and KU Leuven Faculty of Law, has posted Roman Law and the Intellectual History of International Law, which appeared in the Oxford Handbook of the Theory of International Law, edited by Anne Orford and Florian Hoffmann (2016), 38-58:
The pivotal role of Roman law is well established in the historiography of the civil law tradition. Compared to this, its role in the intellectual history of international law is a marginal subject. This paper maps the place and role in the intellectual development of international law from Antiquity to the present.
