The Continuing Influence of the New Haven School, 32 Yale J. Int’l L. 553 (2007)


This Conference has explored the deep and abiding influence of what has been called the "New Haven School" of International Law. It offers an occasion to reflect on the connection between the ideas at the heart of the School and the place at which they were first formulated-that is, between New Haven and the school of thought that bears its name. And it is an opportunity to consider the connection between the past and the present-the ideas first formulated by Myres S. McDougal and Harold D. Lasswell more than a half-century ago, and those, both near and far, whose work they have influenced.
