Prof. Piotr E. Kzanskiy International Readings on International Law

Piotr E. Kzanskiy International Readings on International Law are devoted to the memory of one of the most prominent international law scholar, who spent most of his academic career in Novorossiysk Imperial University.
One of the most famous P.E. Kazanskiy’s works – "The general administrative unions of States" – was published in Odessa and brought to professor glory of leading specialist in the sphere of international law. He considered the international law from the new position as the law of international administration. Based on the original idea of the unity of the international public and private international law, he believed that international law regulates a wide variety of relations: between sovereign countries, states and communities; between government and citizens of another state; between individuals who are citizens of different states.
Professor P.E. Kazanskiy predicted that the substantial increase in the number and the role of international treaties on the protection of public interest, or in other words the birth of international administrative unions in the twentieth century. Development of institutional system of administrative unions and other international associations of states after World War I, the League of Nations and the UN, the creation of specialized agencies within the UN confirmed his vision on the mechanism of international law development.
