ESIL Reflections offer up-to-date reflections on current issues in international law. The Reflections are now in their fourth year, covering a wide range of topics relating to current developments in international law and practice as well as theoretical reflections in a way that is relatively accessible to non-experts. The aim is to foster discussion between ESIL members and international law scholars and practitioners more generally – in Europe, but also beyond. ESIL Reflections are published monthly on this website and distributed freely to ESIL members.
The editors are Samantha Besson, Jutta Brunnée, Jean d'Aspremont (editor-in-chief) and Jan Klabbers. ESIL Members who have an interest in contributing are encouraged to do so. Please contact Jean d'Aspremont if you would like to contribute.
