Summary "International Law and Infectious Diseases is the first comprehensive analysis of the intersection between international law and infectious diseases. Infectious diseases pose a global threat, and international law plays an important but under-explored role in infectious disease control. The monograph analyses the globalization of public health; and it examines the history of international law in this area, the International Health Regulations, and international law on trade, human rights, armed conflict and arms control, and the environment. The monograph develops the concepts of microbialpolitik and global health jurisprudence to provide a political perspective and a framework for future legal action."--BOOK JACKET
