    Cosmopolitism, Global Justice and International Law.Roland Pierik & Wouter Werner - 2005 - The Leiden Journal of International Law 18 (4):679-684.
    Along with the exploding attention to globalization, issues of global justice have become central elements in political philosophy. After decades in which debates were dominated by a state-centric paradigm, current debates in political philosophy also address issues of global inequality, global poverty, and the moral foundations of international law. As recent events have demonstrated, these issues also play an important role in the practice of international law. In fields such as peace and security, economic integration, environmental law, and human rights, (...)

    Continuity and Change in Legal Positivism.Huib M. De Jong & Wouter G. Werner - 1998 - Law and Philosophy 17 (3):233-250.
    Institutional theory of law (ITL) reflects both continuity and change of Kelsen's legal positivism. The main alteration results from the way ITL extends Hart's linguistic turn towards ordinary language philosophy (OLP). Hart holds – like Kelsen – that law cannot be reduced to brute fact nor morality, but because of its attempt to reconstruct social practices his theory is more inclusive. By introducing the notion of law as an extra-linguistic institution ITL takes a next step in legal positivism and accounts (...)

  11. International Law as a Profession.Jean D'Aspremont, Tarcisio Gazzini, André Nollkaemper & Wouter Werner (eds.) - 2017 - Cambridge University Press.
    International law is not merely a set of rules or processes, but is a professional activity practised by a diversity of figures, including scholars, judges, counsel, teachers, legal advisers and activists. Individuals may, in different contexts, play more than one of these roles, and the interactions between them are illuminating of the nature of international law itself. This collection of innovative, multidisciplinary and self-reflective essays reveals a bilateral process whereby, on the one hand, the professionalisation of international law informs discourses (...)

What are the eff ects of such bureaucratization of cosmopolitan ideals? Th is book examines the strained relationship between cosmopolitanism as a moral standard and the legal institutions in which cosmopolitan norms and principles are to be implemented.

  13. The Law of International Lawyers: Reading Martti Koskenniemi.Wouter Werner, Marieke de Hoon & Alexis Galán (eds.) - 2017 - Cambridge University Press.
