This volume of the Netherlands Yearbook of International Law explores the many faces of populism, and the different manifestations of the relationship between populism and international law. Rather than taking the so-called populist backlash against globalisation, international law and governance at face value, this volume aims to dig deeper and wonders `What backlash are we talking about, really?'. While populism is contextual and contingent on the society in which it arises and its relationship with international law and institutions thus has differed likewise, this volume assists in our examination of what we find so dangerous about populism and problematic in its relationship with international law.

The Netherlands Yearbook of International Law was first published in 1970. It offers a forum for the publication of scholarly articles in a varying thematic area of public international law.

Specific to this volume of the Yearbook:

  • Provides a unique exploration of populism and its relationship with international law
  • Analyses the many faces of populism and goes beyond the mere ‘backlash’ rhetoric
  • Includes contributions on recent developments regarding Dutch practice in international law
