10th Annual Cambridge International Law Conference

Henrique Marcos, Antonia Waltermann, and Jaap Hage are presenting their research at the 10th Annual Cambridge International Law Conference taking place on 18 – 20 March 2021.

In their paper ‘From Sovereignty to International Cooperation: Lessons from Legal Logic and Social Ontology‘, the authors connect state sovereignty to fragmentation and the potential for inconsistencies and conflicts and investigate whether exercises of sovereignty necessarily lead to inconsistencies that would hinder international cooperation. They advocate for a framework of (meta)rules, logic for rules, and information about the relations between rules (such as more or less specific) that turns the unsupervised set of international rules into a consistent and workable set.
