Two central questions are at the core of international legal theory: 'What is international law?', and 'Is international law really law?' This volume examines these critical questions and the philosophical foundations of modern international law using the tools of Anglo-American legal theory and western political thought. Engaging with both contemporary and historical legal theory and with an analysis of international law in action, the book builds an understanding and theory of law from the perspective of those who actually use this legal system and understand it, rather than constructing an artificial system from the standpoint of political scientists and moral philosophers. Law at the Vanishing Point provides a fascinating new challenge to those who reduce international law either to ethics or to politics and provides a critical new appraisal of its power as an independent force in human social relations.

Frieden und Recht bilden einen komplexen Zusammenhang. International schafft das Recht wichtige Rahmenbedingungen für die Begrenzung von Gewalt, ist im Völkerrecht sogar das Gewaltverbot verankert. Dennoch bleiben gewalttätige, kriegerische Auseinandersetzungen Realität. Vor diesem Hintergrund stellen sich auch Anfragen an das Konzept „Frieden durch Recht“. Dieses wird im Band kritisch reflektiert und weitergedacht. Wie tragfähig ist dieses liberale Modell, welche Anfragen und Herausforderungen stellen sich in der Gegenwart? Die Autorinnen und Autoren stellen sich diese Fragen aus evangelischer, katholischer, philosophischer rechtswissenschaftlicher und rechtsphilosophischer Perspektive.
