Globalization of financial markets and the increase in frequency and severity of financial crises have led to evolving change in the realm of international financial law also. International financial law, historically primarily soft law in the form of standards transposed into domestic law, rules, and regulations, is most especially facing challenges in the wake of recent crises with calls and efforts to both reform its content and enhance its structure.

This development, however, constitutes an ongoing debate and one that is particularly challenging because of issues relating to sovereignty, enforcement of decisions, fairness, and effectiveness. The debate overlaps with, and has significant potential implications for, both public international law and municipal law. Given its frequently nontraditional nature, international financial law can be compared and contrasted with monetary law and trade law, which are comparatively more traditional in their degree of legalization.

International Law and Municipal Law The difficult question of how much legal power a state commands and who commands the allocation of jurisdictions of sovereignty, the legal dispute settlement processes, and linkages in international law are the issues explored by international law experts in this section.

Barnhoorn and Wellens highlights interaction among international law, law of treaties and of remedies, treaty interpretation, amendment and adaptations, and state responsibility. On the other hand, Cane and Kritzer is an empirical study on vast areas of law, from particularly European and American perspectives, that takes into account not only the normative interpretations of law, but also the social practices of political, economic, and ethical importance.

De Bellis lays out an interesting case of the interrelationship of domestic legal systems and international law regulatory regimes, on the one hand, while also, in discussing mechanisms of this hybrid approach, pointing to very important issues of accountability and legitimacy.

Akehurst engages in an interesting debate on the interrelationship of municipal law, international law, and international economic law and on questions of jurisdiction and the legal personality of international law itself.

The conceptual debate on the issue is taken up in Malanczuk , which throws light on the problems when it comes to norms of municipal law and issues of state sovereignty.
