The Peace Palace Library is pleased to announce that we're starting off the new year with a subscription to a new database, the Encyclopedia of Public International Law in Asia.
Here's what it's all about:
Incorporating the work of numerous leading scholars, the Encyclopedia of Public International Law in Asia provides a detailed description of the practice and implementation of international law in various Asian states. The Encyclopedia, edited by Professor Seokwoo Lee, covers the introduction of Western international law and the resulting shift from the older Asian order; the development of modern international law; and the impact that all of this has had on Asian states.
Offered online and in print as three geographically-organized volumes – Northeast Asia, Southeast Asia, and Central and South Asia – this reference work provides valuable information for all those interested in the historical development, implementation, and application of international law in Asia. Although there is general acknowledgement of the great variety of cultures among Asian countries, strong themes of familiarity, mutual understanding, coherence, and solidarity persists among them as a result of the numerous mutual cultural and religious contacts and interconnections that developed over the course of centuries. This examination of international law and its application in Asia reveals the shared history of the continent, as well as its unique development in each Asian state.
