The Empirical Turn in International Legal Scholarship
Gregory Shaffer and Tom Ginsburg
This article presents and assesses a new wave of empirical research on interna-
tional law. Recent scholarship has moved away from theoretical debates over
whether international law matters, and focuses instead on exploring the con-
ditions under which international law is created and produces effects. As this
empirical research program has matured, it has allowed for new, midlevel the-
orizing that we call conditional international law theory.
Political Science Research on International Law: The State of the Field
EmilieM  Hafner-Burton, David G. Victor, and Yonatan Lupu    47
Political scientists are actively engaged in research on many aspects of interna-
tional law and organizations. This article reviews the key theories and empirical
findings that have emerged over the last two decades of that research program.
The aim, in addition to a comprehensive review and assessment, is to outline an
agenda for collaboration between political scientists and international lawyers on
topics that will advance the state of the art in both fields.
