"The New Pluralism and International Law"
The New Pluralism is the last in a trilogy of lectures on General Theory of International Law and the changing basic premise of the World public order system. The New Pluralism represents a logical consummation of the drives for acceptance of Multiculturalism as ordering principle of the World public order system with its introduction of a more programmatic, pragmatic, operational response to the demands for fundamental change and modernisation in a UN constitutional-legal system thought still to reflect the political-military status quo at War's end in 1945.
