The Limits of Functional Analogy 11 international actors including other states. The inherent constitutional limitations in any intergovernmental organisation suggest limits to such functional expressions of authority in international law.

Unlike at the state level, the authority of international organisations remains ultimately grounded in the inter-state constitution, therefore deliberately limiting their capacity to act authoritatively, either on behalf of the international community as a whole or as agents or organs of the international system. With a clear preponderance and proliferation of increasingly centralised and autonomous regimes, introducing innovative compliance mechanisms and dispute settlement bodies, one witnesses grow- ing anxieties over the impact of institutionalisation on the overall systemic coherence of international law.
Overview of the Argument and Structure of the Book 13 society or community in question.
To see the purpose of international law as one of regulating or governing international politics is to misconstrue the nature of the political relations which pertain at the international level, which are fundamentally different from the relations of political subordina- tion that exist within the state. As such, by engaging head-on with these presumptions from a legal-theoretical perspective, I show how if the inter- national rule of law, and the autonomy of law it presupposes, has mean- ingful explanatory download, it must at the very least presuppose a formal, institutional framework capable of securing a non-arbitrary means for mutual co-existence and cooperation under conditions of political plurality.
Rather than reflecting any kind of constitutional deficiency, therefore, the decentralised legal form of the international legal order can be seen as both reflective and protective of this fundamental purpose and as a key aspect of the legitimacy of international legal rules.
To reach this conclusion is not at all to suggest that states and other actors cannot create ambitious hierarchical institutional forms within the interna- tional legal order, or that international law itself is incapable of change— this is not a position of conservatism or overtly realist scepticism.
In fact, as the argument of the book progresses, I will explain how the international legal order has transformed itself quite dramatically, in both substantive and structural terms, as a result of the proliferation of a range of increas- ingly powerful institutions and regimes.
The system overall and the institutions created on its terms have to be understood at least in part by reference to their legal form, which in turn is justified as important and meaningful due to the kind of legitimacy pulls inherent within the international community.
My argument therefore follows from a view of the task of legal theory, and of the legal theorist specifically, which begins from the need to develop, understand and, ultimately, defend a view of law or legal order that is meaningful to international legal participants.
It should be noted, however, as will be clear in Ch 6 in par- ticular, that Capps and I part company on the ultimate function of law and international law in particular. I have divided the book into three discrete parts, each of which is further divided into three chapters.

Whilst there is clearly narrative continuity between the three parts, each has a somewhat distinct focus, method and ambition. Part I Origins is historical, sociological and, to some degree, deconstruc- tive in focus.
I explain this transformation in terms of a broad disciplinary effort to account for inter- national law as an autonomous system of positive legal rules on similar terms to state-based legal orders.
In charting the scepticism that interna- tional lawyers have faced in explaining international law on these terms 59 See, eg, recently N Walker, Intimations of Global Law Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, Overview of the Argument and Structure of the Book 15 in both Chapters 1 and 2 , I aim to illustrate the kind of presumptions, tensions and ambitions underlying this view of modern international law.
I do so in order to explain the difficulties that international lawyers have faced in giving a coherent account on these terms—that is, in explaining this kind of autonomy in a decentralised legal system—and thus in Chapter 3 I argue that this problem has left an overall impression of international law as essentially deficient at a constitutional level. In considering the methodological weaknesses of these approaches in adequately accounting for forms of law and legality beyond the state, I will ultimately advocate in Chapter 5 the need to take a distinctly evaluative, more normative approach in order to understand law in its many guises.
This normative idealism thus purposefully blurs the boundary between the concept and the rule of law, but does so conceiving of the latter as a somewhat abstract ideal that resists any specific institutional form. Pre-course Reading.

Brownlie's principles of public international law Author: James Crawford ; Ian Brownlie Publisher: Serving as a single volume introduction to the field as a whole, this book seeks to present international law as a system that is based on, and helps structure, relations among states and other entities at the international level.
It identifies the constituent elements of that system in a clear and accessible fashion. Show all links.Perez-Torres, 15 F. Write a review Rate this item: Reports , pp. It aims to identify the constituent elements of that system in a clear way.
The problem—the institutional problem—therefore arises specifi- cally not only because this kind of presumption is pervasive in the modern discipline, but, more critically, because it is arguably implicit within many of the most dominant modes of conceptual and normative enquiry about law and legal systems more generally—that is, exactly the kind of paradig- matic understandings against which international law is held up to such anxious scrutiny.
Document, Internet resource Document Type: This form of response to the institutional problem has a descriptive and a normative element: on the one hand, suggesting ways in which contemporary inter- national law functions to compensate for its formally decentralised struc- ture, whilst, on the other hand, arguing for necessary institutional reforms in order to strengthen the autonomy of international law in opposition to state sovereignty.

For as long as it has been thought of as a legal system on broadly similar terms to domestic law, international lawyers have had to defend the reality, efficacy and, indeed, importance of international law in the conduct of international politics.
