Abstract

Public international law has, in several ways, reached the status of global law. But take care: ‘international’ is not necessarily ‘transnational’ nor is it equal to ‘universal’. In the article, the author draws attention to, inter alia, the limits to ‘the consent to be bound’ and to the role of General Principles of international law. Further to that, he discusses aspects of international lawmaking, while underlining that the emphasis should be more on processes of globalization than on global as such: in most cases there is a long way to go.
