Despite its Finnish pedigree, the Finnish Yearbook of International Law does not restrict itself to purely 'Finnish' topics. On the contrary, it reflects the many connections in law between the national and the international. The Finnish Yearbook of International Law annually publishes articles of high quality dealing with all aspects of international law, including international law aspects of European law, with close attention to developments that affect Finland. It offers: longer articles of a theoretical nature; new avenues and approaches; shorter polemics; commentaries on current international law developments; book reviews; and documentation of relevance to Finland's foreign relations not easily available elsewhere. The Finnish Yearbook offers a fertile ground for the expression of and reflection on the connections between Finnish law and international law as a whole and insight into the richness of this interaction.
A Collection of Essays in Honour of Bert Vierdag
This focused collection of essays on various aspects of the law of treaties does justice to its honoree, scholar and author Professor Bert E.W. Vierdag, on the occasion of his retirement as Professor of International Law and International Relations at the University of Amsterdam. Written by leading academics in the field as well as practitioners and former practitioners, the essays cover: - the alignment of treaties with more general sources doctrine, addressing such issues as conflicts between various types of treaties and the relationship between treaties and customary international law, and between treaties and domestic law; - the emergence of treaty norms through various ways and methods; and - the creation of treaty law in several branches of international law. This cohesive, focused, expert work will assist and appeal to both academics in the fields of public law and political science and professionals engaged in international negotiations and treaty-making.
The Finnish Yearbook of International Law aspires to honour and strengthen the Finnish tradition in international legal scholarship. Open to contributions from all over the world and from all persuasions, the Finnish Yearbook stands out as a forum for theoretically informed, high-quality publications on all aspects of public international law, including the international relations law of the European Union.

The Finnish Yearbook publishes in-depth articles and shorter notes, commentaries on current developments, book reviews, and relevant overviews of Finland’s state practice. While firmly grounded in traditional legal scholarship, it is open for new approaches to international law and for work of an interdisciplinary nature.
