An Introduction to Comparative Law : Konrad Zweigert :In a recent monograph  and in a subsequent edited volume,  Anthea Roberts makes the case for the adoption of a comparative international law CIL  approach in the study and practice of international law. This study examines how international law scholars think of, teach, and use international law in several selected countries the five countries that are permanent members of the UN Security Council. A key result of the study is that international law is not as international, let alone universal, as claimed and that, therefore, a discipline that likes to think of itself as cosmopolitan turns out to be rather parochial. According to Roberts, neither of these different perceptions should be snubbed, but instead they should be understood, and factored into the teaching and practice of international law. CIL is the methodological approach that Roberts proposes to international lawyers to make the best out of those differences. Its justification lies in the urgency of the problems to be tackled and in the significance of the aspirations it is meant to serve.
