In recent years, increasing globalization and rapid technological developments have made international politics and legal institutions more critical than ever. But changing circumstances around the world, such as the rise of ardent nationalism, have placed international law in a precarious position, as scholars routinely call its efficacy into question. Accordingly, the Chicago Journal of International Law will convene scholars from around the world to share their perspectives on international law scholarship, how it developed, and where it will go in the future.
