The field of public international law has forever been marked by a high degree of

disputes over the role of law in a largely unruly world. Time and again, these
quarrels have highlighted the intricate connections between international and
national legal issues ...

aspiration, but it is there, etymologically embedded in aspiration itself, and does
seem to constitute something of a precondition for any. 15 2. Ethical Ambivalence
