As a result of the growing prominence of international organizations and non-binding instruments there is increasing controversy as to how to delineate the boundaries of international law. This book advocates a return to a more formal way of determining what is and isn't international law, and suggests ways in which this formalism can be modernized

Timothy Meyer, Melbourne Journal of International Law The book is a greatly welcome addition to the literature on the sources of international law. Drawing on both general and international legal theory, d'Aspremont develops a formalist theory of how linguistic indicators can and should be used to identify legal norms and distinguish them from non-legal norms.


Massimo Iovane, IYIL The author's attempt to rejuvenate formalism in order to distinguish between law and non-law is certainly laudable and long-awaited among international lawyers.
