Coherence is a fundamental concept which raises fierce debates among international law scholars and practitioners. Some regard coherence as a ‘pathological desire’; others view it as being inherent to (international) law. This chapter focuses on that political struggle and the views expressed in both international legal theory and practice. It first proposes a brief overview of the fundamental issues debated among legal theorists in relation to coherence and the content determination of the law. It then introduces and critically analyses the main arguments put forth by international legal theorists – mainly opponents – as to the relevance of coherence in discussion of the content determination of international law. Finally, it discusses coherence from the standpoint of international legal practice; more precisely, it focuses on international investment law, which, because of the features of its treaty and arbitration practices, provides an insightful case study to better grasp the concept.

The global landscape has changed profoundly over the past decades. As a result, the account of the making of international law based on the traditional theory of sources is increasingly challenged. This Handbook offers a comprehensive guide to the theory and practice of international law‐making today. It takes stock at both the conceptual and the empirical level of the instruments, processes, and actors involved in the making of international law. The book contains essays by leading scholars on key aspects of international law-making and on law-making in the main issue areas, with an interest in classic processes as well as new developments and shades of normativity.
