International Law, first published in 1836, is a book on international law by
Henry Wheaton which has long been influential. This book was translated into
many languages and became a standard work. On his own merits Wheaton is clearly
entitled to rank among the classics. Like Grotius, he embodied a happy
combination of profound scholarship with a wide experience of diplomatic and
public life, and his work further resembles that of Grotius in that it cannot be
classified under the conventional labels of any doctrinal system.
This note covers the following
topics: Mass Immigration and the Growing Threat of Terrorism, Troubled
Immigration and Refugee Systems, Balancing Liberty and Security in the New
Environment, The Challenge of Strengthening the Canada-US Border.
This publication is designed to provide a

aims to give a quick insight into the general principles of international law as well as the
basic elements of international criminal law, humanitarian law, refugee law and human rights law
which may be relevant in a counter-terrorism context.
