BELARUSIAN YEARBOOK OF INTERNATIONAL LAW

VOLUME 1 | HARDCOVER

General Description

Belarusian Yearbook of International Law (BYIL) is the initiative of International Law & Arbitration Association (BILA Association), which is aimed to give Belarusian researchers an opportunity to present their work to international community. We hope, it will allow to consolidate Belarusian international lawyers inside and outside the country to promote international law expertise and to open Belarus, Belarusian lawyers, Belarusian legislation and legal practices to the world.

BYIL is considered to be the first English-language book on international law in Belarus. Volume 1 of the BYIL includes - among other important publications - professional translation of the 2015 Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union.
