Working title: Russia and the Global World: A Systemic Understanding of International Law (edited by P. Sean Morris and Anatoly Kapustin)
The discourse on Russia and the nature of international law is often painted by mostly western based authors from their perception on how Russia interacts with international law. While, most of the discourse are laudable attempts, they do not present the full picture of Russia and international law. In this edited book, the editors aim to gather a number of Russian based researchers on international law to present a systemic understanding of international law, from a Russian perspective. The aim is for a balance view and understanding of Russia and international law, available to western audience and an appreciation of Russian interaction with international law. Thus, the purpose of this book is to provide a systemic and systematic advanced understanding of the contemporary nature of international law from a Russian perspective.
At this stage the editors invites Russian researchers on international law to submit abstracts for what we hope to be one of the most comprehensive work, to be submitted to a reputable publisher in due course. Although the editors initially envisaged a six-volume work that comprehensively maps Russia and the nature of international law, we are calling for chapters that will contribute to a single volume, that may take the nature of a “research handbook” or a general edited volume. We hope that the book may stand as a standard reference work for scholars on international law relating to Russia and also clarifying how the discourse on international law in Russia integrates into the wider global agenda.
