Australia and New Zealand are both longstanding supporters of the international rules-based order, but is this order sufficiently resilient to survive both acute and systemic challenges? Since the start of the 2020s, the international order has been challenged by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, geopolitical tension between China and the West, the increasingly visible effects of climate change, the ongoing COVID pandemic, the economic disruptions caused by supply chains in crisis, and the challenges posed by cyberthreats and new technologies, to name just a few.
Is international law, and are international institutions, resilient in the face of these threats? Can international law contribute to supporting the resilience of ecosystems and communities in the face of inexorable environmental degradation? Is international law equipped with the tools to ‘save succeeding generations from the scourge of war’ as the UN Charter’s preamble so solemnly proclaims? Are key UN institutions such as the Security Council and the International Court of Justice still capable of contributing to peace and security and the peaceful resolution of disputes? How are the UN and other international organisations developing resilience in response to changing geopolitical norms? Is resilience supported through domestic processes of incorporation and interpretation of international law? Does resilience require the development of new international rules in areas where none existed previously? Or, does resilience resist change and prevent the creation of flexible and innovative solutions? Where does a resilient international law sit on the continuum between continuity and change? Finally, how can we remain resilient as teachers, students and practitioners of international law?
