Summary
According to Yee (U. of Colorado School of Law) international law has been primarily concerned, since the dawn of the nation-state and especially during the Cold War, with the separate co-existence of states. However, in efforts to promote co-operation and solve political problems, Yee sees a nascent law of co-progressiveness being born out of more egalitarian changes in the lawmaking process and the forms of lawmaking. He presents a series of 14 papers of his, many previously published, that explore aspects of the emerging international law of co-progressiveness in the context of the ad hoc international criminal tribunals, changes in the activities of the International Court of Justice, the impact of US response to the 9-11 attacks, and international influence in the drafting of the new constitution of Bosnia and Herzegovina.--
