Interview with Andrew Clapham


Professor Joseph Weiler, Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of International Law, and Professor Andrew Clapham of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva, discuss Prof. Clapham’s new edition of Brierly’s Law of Nations. They touch on the process of writing in Brierly’s “voice”, what has changed in the 50 years since Brierly wrote his last edition, and the great achievement of this important and concise book. The interview was recorded at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy, in December 2014.
