Over the last two decades, interest in the history of international law has dramatically risen among scholars from various constituencies such as international law, international relations, legal history and diplomatic history.
i-HILT is a virtual platform on the history of international law. Here, ‘International law’ is used in the broadest sense. It refers to all bodies of law, which regulated relations between polities throughout recorded history: from pre-classical Antiquity to the present and from all civilizations.
i-HILT will run the ‘Bibliography of the History of International Law’. This bibliography can be downloaded from the website. It is updated on a 3-monthly basis. Furthermore, i-HILT will provide information on events and new publications in the field of the history of international law.
