About this product
- DescriptionThis book addresses conflicts involving different rmative orders: what happens when international law prohibits behavior, but the same behavior is netheless morally justified or warranted? Can the actor concerned igre international law under appeal to morality? Can soldiers escape legal liability by pointing to hor? Can accountants do so under reference to professional standards? How, in other words, does law relate to other rmative orders? The assumption behind this book is that law longer automatically claims supremacy, but that actors can pick and choose which code to follow. The velty resides t so much in identifying conflicts, but in exploring if, when and how different orders can be used intentionally. In doing so, the book covers conflicts between legal orders and conflicts involving law and hor, self-regulation, lex mercatoria, local social practices, bureaucracy, religion, professional standards and morality.
