Russian Approaches to International Law
How do Russians understand international law?
Lauri Mälksoo and Kaj Hobér held a roundtable discussion on Russian approaches to International Law. Is the Russian understanding of International Law the same as considered mainstream in the West or is the understanding different? If so, why and what implications for the future of International law can emerge out of these diffrent understandings?
