Abstract or Introduction
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this research seeks to analyse the impact of the global health crisis on the international legal order. The main argument is that while the focus of international law has been on the elimination of war towards global peace and security, the COVID-19 pandemic has shed light on the shortcomings of international law in dealing with a global health crisis. By considering the specialized mechanisms under international law for dealing with a pandemic, the research will reveal the critical role that international law can play in fostering global health. The research is based on a qualitative examination utilizing a deliberate audit of extensive literature on international law and the COVID-19 pandemic. Secondary data obtained from relevant journal articles, textbooks, reports and internet sources.
