Editions

This is the first volume in a large-scale collaborative research project intended to focus the attention of international lawyers and social scientists on the near future of the international legal order. Sponsored by Princeton University with support from the Ford Foundation, the project seeks to stimulate research and provide an intellectual focus for the elucidation of the constructive role law can play in maintaining peace and improving welfare and dignity in the world. The contributors have been urged to engage in their respective areas of expertise in non-utopian forecasting that will enable law to contribute more creatively, by anticipating the range of feasible responses, to the solution of emerging problems in the international environment.

First published in 1969.
