(p.1) Introduction
The Authority of International Law

Başak Çalı

Oxford University Press

The Introduction lays out the central research questions, the motivation for asking the questions, and the methodological approach of the book. The book asks: How can we conceive the legal authority of international law in practice and formulate it in doctrinal terms? These questions are timely, as the authority of international law has been subject to multiple challenges, both within and outside the discipline of international law, and international lawyers have not defended the authority of international law to its ever-increasing critics. The book approaches its questions primarily in conceptual and doctrinal terms and lays out the challenges of conceptual analysis in a deeply normative subject. The Introduction concludes with the chapter layout of the book.

Keywords:   legal authority, conceptual analysis, doctrinal analysis
