Letters to the Editors – A Note from EJIL and I•CON; In This Issue

Letters to the Editors – A Note from EJIL and I•CON EJIL covers principally public international law (though given the porous boundaries between the domestic and the international its ‘tentacles’ often reach deep into municipal jurisdiction). I•CON covers the broad realm of public law, with its ‘tentacles’ reaching from domestic public law to the transnational, in perhaps the…
