The Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law (MPEPIL) has been updated to include new articles as well as revised versions of several existing articles. Among the new additions are entries on Climate Protection Agreements, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, and UN Women. A full list of all updated content is available on MPEPIL’s website.
What is MPEPIL?
MPEPIL is an online encyclopedia with over 1,700 articles on every aspect of public international law. The topics covered include the history of public international, criminal law, human rights law, economic law, and environmental law. Entries are written by scholars and practitioners from all over the world and peer-reviewed by leading experts on international law.
Each article is provided with a select bibliography containing references to relevant journal articles and books. Use the UvA-linker next to a reference to check if a publication is available at the UvA library (NB: results may vary).
Look for information by using the search page or browse articles by title, subject, or author. MPEPIL also contains the Oxford Law Citator which makes it is possible to follow citations and other links to content from both Oxford University Press as well as selected third-party websites.
