The Canadian Council on International Law was founded in 1972, with the aim of encouraging the study and analysis of international law issues in Canada. One of the Council's main activities is the organization of an annual conference dealing with contemporary subjects in international law. This book marks the 25th anniversary of the Council by bringing together 25 papers on international law, carefully selected from the proceedings of the annual conferences in the years since its foundation. The collection provides an overview of the issues considered by the Council in its first 25 years and highlights the significant contribution of Canadian experts to, and Canada's particular concerns in, the field of international law. The essays represent the work of leading international lawyers on issues concerning the theory and practise of public international law, including environmental law, human rights, the law of armed conflict and the issue of state succession.Le Conseil canadien de droit international a été créé en 1972, dans le but de favoriser l'étude et l'approfondissement de questions de droit international au Canada. Une des principales activitiés du Conseil est l'organisation d'un congrès annuel consacré à des sujets d'actualité en droit international. Cet ouvrage marque le 25e anniversaire du Conseil et regroupe 25 textes de droit international, choisis avec soin parmi les travaux des congrès annuels organisés depuis sa fondation. La collection illustre les thèmes qui ont fait l'objet d'étude par le Conseil durant ses 25 premières années d'existence et souligne l'importante contribution des spécialistes canadiens dans les domaines du droit international qui sont d'un intérêt particulier au Canada. Ces articles représentent la réflexion d'internationalistes de renom sur des sujets se rapportant à la théorie et à la pratique du droit international, y compris le droit de l'environnement, les droits de la personne, le droit relatif à la force armée et la question de la sécession d'États.
