“State Opinio Juris and International Humanitarian Law Pluralism” by Michael N. Schmitt and Sean Watts

While states have become increasingly reticent about stating their views on international law, non-state individuals and organizations have strongly moved into the “declaratory” space, offering no end of “authoritative”-sounding declarations, reports, briefs to all sorts of international institutions, and scholarship. In a new paper, Schmitt and Watts offer an eloquent call for states, and particularly the United States, to speak up both with regards to their emerging state practice and formal opinio juris.
