Denial of justice is one of the oldest bases of liability in international law and the modern understanding of denial of justice is examined by Paulsson in this book, which was originally published in 2005. The possibilities for prosecuting the offence of denial of justice have evolved in fundamental ways and it is now settled law that States cannot disavow international responsibility by arguing that their courts are independent of the government. Even more importantly, the doors of international tribunals have swung wide open to admit claimants other than states: non-governmental organisations, corporations and individuals, and Paulsson examines several recent cases of great importance in his book.

Review of the hardback: 'Paulsson has a gift for presenting historical perspectives in a way which makes the reader appreciate the effects in modern doctrine and practice ... This book is a model in terms of focus and disciplined presentation.' International Affairs
"Denial of Justice in International Law does a remarkable job of illuminating a cause of action which has not yet received in depth scholarly attention since 1938." Mark J. Harris, University of California, Berkeley, The Law and Politics Book Review
"Paulsson's presentation is clear, careful and lovely, offering a welcome contrast to some other contemporary international law writing obscured by turgid prose or impenetrable or invented vocabulary." - John R. Crook, On the Board of Editors, American Journal of International Law
