David Kennedy, Director of the Institute for Global Law and Policy, and  José María Beneyto, Director of the Institute for European Studies in Madrid, Spain, along with IGLP affiliated scholars,  Justo Corti Varela, and John Haskell have released a new volume of New Approaches to International Law: The European and the American Experiences.

This volume offers a unique reflection on the historic and contemporary influence of the New Approaches to International Law (NAIL) movement within the context of Europe and America. In particular, the contributions focus on the intellectual product of NAIL’s founder, David Kennedy, in relation to three legal streams: human rights, legal history, and the law of war. On the one hand, the volume is valuable reading for a broad audience interested in the current challenges facing global governance, and how critical studies might contribute to innovative intellectual and practice-oriented developments in international law. On the other hand, stemming from a 2010 seminar in Madrid that brought together scholars to discuss David Kennedy’s scholarship over the last three decades, the contributions here are a testament to the community and ideas of the NAIL tradition.  The volume includes scholars from a wide field of legal interests and backgrounds.

The IGLP and IEE (CEU San Pablo University), and contributors to this publication, held a joint seminar, “The European Legal Project: New Approaches” at Harvard Law School on April  13, 2012. The seminar featured panels and round table discussions by scholars from the EU and US, and  a keynote speech by Miguel Madero, Professor of Law and Director of the Global Governance Program at European University Institute in Florence.
