International law evolved to end and prevent armed conflict as much as for any other reason. Yet, the law against war appears weaker today than ever in its long history, evidenced by raging armed conflicts in which people are killed, injured, and forcibly displaced.

The environment is devastated, and the planet impoverished. These consequences can be traced to the dominant ideology of realism. In 1946, Hersch Lauterpacht challenged that ideology by contrasting it with the idea of international law, composed of natural law, positive law, and process theory.

The Art of Law in the International Community revives his vision, rebuilding the understanding of why international law binds, what its norms require, and how courts are the ideal substitutes for war. The secret to the renewal of international law lies in revitalising the moral foundation of natural law through drawing on aesthetic philosophy and the arts.

  • Diagnoses and addresses the weaknesses of international law using the prohibition of force as a focus.
  • Analyzes the reasons why the law against the use of force is disrespected using the conflicts in Syria, Ukraine, Mali, North Korea, and the South China Sea as case studies.
  • Explains why natural law should be reintroduced to international legal theory and how that can be done in a secular age by drawing on aesthetic philosophy and the arts.
