Democracy and Sovereignty
Rethinking the Legitimacy of Public International Law . Daniel-Erasmus Khan, Evelyne Lagrange, Stefan Oeter, Christian Walter (Hrsg.), Brill, 2022
At a time where multilateralism is coming under increasing pressure, a new reflection on the foundations of international law is warranted. Democracy and Sovereignty: Rethinking the Legitimacy of Public International Law addresses urgent new and intrinsically international subject areas, such as digitalization, climate change and transborder investments. This volume looks at the changing role of state sovereignty and explores more democratic modes of legitimation in order to supplement the traditional concept of state consent, and sharpen the notion of democracy itself.
