German Federalist Thinking and International Law

Abstract

This paper examines the explanatory and the prescriptive value of German
(and related) federalist ideas with regard to the constitutionalization of
international law. The author contends that respective scholars have, on the
one hand, developed federalist thought with regard to the national
constitutional level which may help to explain or shape international
processes of constitution-building. On the other hand, they have themselves
promoted international federalism as a natural extension of their national
constitutional doctrine, hence partially weakening the classical dichotomy
between national and international law.
