The essays in this volume, written in memory of Judge Nagendra Singh are centred around the theme of International Law in Transition'. The international legal system has been in transition ever since the end of the Second World War, and it can be argued that a new' international law has emerged, different from traditional Eurocentric law, and comprising legal principles and standards of behaviour acceptable to all States, irrespective of their ideological, economic or political systems. Innovations in international law have been brought about in response to contemporary needs, demands and aspirations within the global community, to fill gaps in the existing law, and in order to bring it into some accord with radically new societal conditions.
