Birmingham lecturer Dr Alexander Orakhelashvili is the editor, and one of the featured authors, of the new Research Handbook On The Theory And History Of International Law, published by Edward Elgar Publishing this month.

The first comprehensive analysis of theory and history of international law, with contributions from renowned experts including Birmingham Law School's own Professor Rob Cryer, provides a comprehensive scholarly framework for analyzing the theory and history of international law. Given the multiplication of theoretical approaches over the last three decades, and attendant fragmentation of scholarly efforts, the collection presents a useful doctrinal platform that will help academics and students to see the theory and history of international law in its entirety, and to understand how interdependent various aspects of the theory and history of international law really are.
