Foreword[edit | edit source]

International law spans the globe and, per definition, concerns peoples and nations around the world. Yet, truly transboundary scholarly communication all too often is hampered by legal and technical barriers and obstacles. To overcome some of these hurdles, we look for authors to create the first-ever Open Access textbook in international law in the context of the initiative “OpenRewi”. The aim of the book is to introduce readers to the field of public international law with a focus on the general questions/questions common to all specialized sub-fields. The aim is both to give an overview of the vast body of law and to discuss certain important questions in more detail and provide further references. The targeted audience are both students studying the field for the first time and those who would like to deepen their knowledge.

This book is meant to be a living document. You will find invitations and hints for collaboration on every single page. We would be happy if you get in contact with the authors and contribute with comments. How to do that is described here.

More information about the project OpenRewi - Initiative for an Open Legal Science can be found on our website.
