About the Author

Andrea Bianchi is Professor of International Law and Head of the International Law Department at The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva. Previously, he was a Professor at the Catholic University, Milan, Associate Professor at the University of Parma and Professorial Lecturer in International Law at the Bologna Centre of Johns Hopkins University. He has researched and published extensively on various aspects of public international law, with a particular emphasis on theoretical and methodological issues.


The book successfully makes international law theories - or better, 'different ways of thinking about international law' - accessible and relatable ... If, as Bianchi states, the mission is to 'stir up the water that we, as international lawyers, swim in' and encourage more lawyers to interrogate their perceptions of what 'water' even is, then this book might be read as a seductive enticement to get our feet soaking wet. * Hemy Mistry, The Modern Law Review *
[A] profound exposition of the intellectual underpinnings of an entire discipline from a scholar whose familiartity with the material is unparalleled. ... International Law Theories is an essential reference point for anyone interested in serious international legal scholarship. It is also a remarkably enjoyable read. In no other single volume is such a breadth of critical material on this vast subject orchestrated with this level of clarity and perception - a truly indispensable resource. * David Collins, Melbourn Journal of International Law *
[A]n insightful introduction and inquiry into theoretical thinking in general, and international law theory in particular ... It has the potential to successfully encourage its readers not only to 'think about law' but also to 'think about thinking about law'. * Dana Burckardt, British Yearbook of International Law *
