Product Description


Review from previous edition This well presented work is optimistic about future prospects, which should give comfort to us all. (Gavin McFarlane, New Law Journal, Feb 01)

Commitment and Compliance is an impressive collection of studies...which is surely the most significant contribution so far to the literature on the soft-law phenomenon and the associated problem of compliance with nonbinding instruments. Expertly edited by Dinah Shelton, this substantial work draws upon no less than twenty-seven authors and co-authors...[t]he result is a work unusually rich in conceptual insight and empirical range: cross-disciplinary, multisectoral, and transgenerational... (Douglas M. Johnston, The American Journal of International Law, July 2001)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book sheds light on a very dark conner of international law ( compliance to non-binding norms) in a very thorough manner. Excellent book.
