Former Fellow publishes An Evolutionary Paradigm for International Law

Former Exeter College Visiting Fellow in Law John Martin Gillroy has published An Evolutionary Paradigm for International Law: Philosophical Method, David Hume, and the Essence of Sovereignty (Palgrave-Macmillan 2013).

The book draws upon research that Professor Gillroy undertook while at Exeter in Trinity Term 2013. It conceptualizes international law as an expression of practical reason, focusing on the genesis of modern international law in the essence of the concept of sovereignty.

Professor Gillroy has also been made editor of a new series for Palgrave-MacMillan, Philosophy, Public Policy And Transnational Law. This series, for the first time at a major publisher, looks seriously at the philosophical and public policy foundations of legal practice, not in terms of pieces of theory or policy used to illustrate empirical claims, but as a systematic and integral basis for the study of codified law.
