International Law and the Information Age

The subject of this article is problematic because of the paucity of other work addressing the topic and its amorphous and technical nature. The author shall argue that the information age will affect almost all aspects of how international law is made and studied, everything from theory to sources to research to teaching. Rather than limiting the article to one or two aspects of the changes brought by the information age, the author offers a tour d’horizon. This risks superficiality, but is consonant with the goal of stimulating discussion about issues that are important to the future of international law.
