The UCLA Journal of International Law and Foreign Affairs (JILFA) brings together in its Fall/Winter 1999-2000 issue a collection of writings that is not only timely, but also diverse. On one hand, this volume examines conventional subjects such as the international law of providing military aid to insurgents, the efficacy of regional and multilateral trade vehicles, the wisdom of current U.S. export control policies and the involvement of NGOs in promoting transitional justice. On the other hand, we break new ground by recognizing the growing importance of the Internet and examine how Europe and other countries have begun to shape and fashion their laws toward cyberspace. All the pieces, however, share the common theme of exploring international law through a truly multidisciplinary lens.
