This book comes out at a time of grave uncertainty about the content and the very existence of international legal restraints on the use of force, in the international community as well as among legal scholars. The time is therefore ripe for an in-depth analysis on the methodological issues which constitute the basic bricks on which the legal discourse about the state of the law must be built. By offering the result of an open and frank discussion about the methodology of determining the law on the use of force "at a time of perplexity", this timely book constitutes an invaluable contribution to legal analysis.
Recent developments in both the EU and the global legal order call for a reassessment of the role of international law within the European Union. International Law as Law of the European Union explores how, and to what extent, international law still forms part of, and plays a role in, the current legal order of the European Union. Recent case law of the European Court of Justice prompted both scholars and practitioners to reconsider the relationship between EU law and international law. This volume reveals the practical development and consequences of this relationship, and places it in a conceptual framework by pointing to key arguments in the current debate.

International Law as Law of the European Union thus forms an essential guide for academics, students and practitioners interested in the impact of new case law and conceptual thinking on the relationship between EU and international law.
