International law is rooted in communities, influencing and affected by social groups and their socio-cultural features. This fifth workshop on the sociology of international law focuses on various sociological aspects pertaining to international economic law and human rights law, as well as to interrelationships between these two major legal fields. 

Contributors will explore diverse interactions between sociological concepts (such as identity, socialization, collective memory, social control or frames) and broad range of legal rules and institutions in these spheres.
