   schema:description ""Canadians like to think their country is law-abiding and honours its international commitments. Is Our House in Order? explores this public perception while considering whether or not it is correct in terms of domestic law. Examining a range of topics such as treaty implementation, federal-provincial relations, the environment, international humanitarian law, and the protection of confidential information, contributors disentangle the complex processes involved in implementing international law in Canadian law. They highlight how the federal negotiation and ratification process has been opened up to the public, what is being done to give effect to custom in domestic law, and offer suggestions for improving the harmonization of international law implemented at the federal and provincial level. Informative and clarifying, Is Our House in Order? provides well-reasoned prescriptions for improving Canada's implementation of international law and makes a case for thinking about international law as an integral part of Canadian law and society."--Publisher."@en ;
