The Rule of Law in International and Regional Standard Setting

Lord Bingham insisted that the rule of law applies not only in the domestic context, but also internationally, describing this as "the domestic rule of law writ large". This sphere is now enormous, ranging across issues affecting war and counter-terrorist activities, cross border criminal activity, the protection of children, the settlement of international investment disputes, the role of international or regional courts and many other matters.
