Mapping the Debate with Oxford Public International Law
International lawyers are fortunate to be well-served by a number of very well informed and thoughtful blogs, which are making a lasting contribution to scholarship. This increase in scholarly commentary, although a huge benefit to lawyers and scholars, can become rather difficult and time consuming to keep track of. With this in mind, the editors of Oxford Public International Law have begun a series of debate maps indexing discussions by scholars on the public international law aspects of these major debates. Information on these debate maps can be found below.
