The book is divided into two volumes. Each volume is then divided into several chapters. Each chapter will be structured like a part of the Federalist papers in that a set of papers will be devoted to questions on the philosophical foundations of constitutional law and international law.

Constitutional law papers: vol. 1

International law papers: vol. 2

Draft of ideas for structuring the page:

Comparative law: think about the similarities and differences between different systems of constitutional law. In addition to examining our own constitution, consider whether or not there are suggestions for improving constitutional systems of law generally. Do we all face similar problems in the development of law?

  1. Sovereignty of states: a stumbling block for the development of international law?
  2. Status of indigenous peoples within both constitutional and international law.
  3. Relationship between private international law and public (the degree to which commerce between states shapes the development of public international law).
  4. human rights within constitutional law and international law.
