The Global Community Yearbook of International Law and Jurisprudence (GCYILJ) was established in 2001. Since then, it has become an authoritative reference on the most significant transformations in the world constitutive process. While providing researchers and practitioners with access to a uniquely rich resource for the study of international jurisprudence, the GCYILJ promotes discussion on current issues that impact substantive and procedural aspects of global law. In this way, the GCYILJ makes it possible to monitor – from year to year and from several perspectives – the development of the international order towards a legal system for a global community.
GCYILJ opens an important window for the Copernican Revolution of the international legal system, from inter-state law to law of all humanity, while tracing the creation of the founding principles of the global community and the emergence of an embryonic global constitution. It offers exciting opportunities to partake in and reflect on the continuous development and chronicling of the central concept of global constitutionalism and its interface with global governance.Look for theoretical parts
“The Global Community Yearbook of International Law and Jurisprudence has, since its founding, become the most important source of reference on global legal issues, which necessarily covers an enormous range of issues and more particularly developments before international tribunals.”
M. Cherif Bassiouni, DePaul University, College of Law
