How Donald Trump’s bull-in-a-china-shop shtick is strengthening international law

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


In his first 100 days, Donald Trump’s presidency has ramped up feelings of anxiety in the political and legal arenas of America and beyond, particularly for those with an internationalist view of the world.

The first few executive orders have not had a wide-reaching practical effect, but seemed designed to set a policy agenda for his government; the orders passed so far have had a decidedly protectionist bent. The now-infamous order to restrict entry of nationals from select countries to the United States received widespread coverage, is the only order to create any real impact on the lives of those in the US.
