International law was traditionally made by states and states were also the only entities which could breach it. While in contemporary international law states remain the main actor, they are no longer the only one. The panel will discuss issues such as how the traditionally state-centric international legal system accommodates the increased role of individuals and other non-state actors in international law; how it regulates the exercise of public power through private-public partnership; and how it accommodates the global law developing under the lex mercatoria regime.
