The Trump Administration and International Law

Harold Hongju Koh

  • This book answers one of the most pressing questions of our time: who is winning the battle of Donald Trump versus international law? This clear and comprehensive tour d'horizon, by one of America's leading international lawyers, explains why, in his first two years, Trump is not "winning" in his effort to resign the U.S. from global leadership, and how the Resistance is blunting his initiatives.
  • The book surveys many fields of international law: immigration and refugees, human rights, climate change, denuclearization, trade diplomacy, relations with North Korea, Russia and Ukraine, and America's "Forever War" against Al Qaeda and the Islamic State and its challenges in Syria.
  • Offers a counter-strategy to preserve the rule of law against the Trump Administration's many initiatives to change the nature of America's relationship with international law and its institutions.
