This book presents a critical reflection on how the presence of «culture» in theory and practice of international relations is reflected in International Relations as a research field. The authors analyze culture in International Relations scholarship and evaluate culture in the practice of International Relations, as well as in International Law. The contemporary social sciences have put culture on a pedestal. The proliferation of the meanings associated with the notion of what culture is, has gone very far. The results of analyses presented in this book are meant to contribute to solving the existing confusion, to identify the research fields in IR where culture appears.

Culture in the Making of Public International Law – Custom and General Principles of Law Recognised by Civilised Nations
Key words: Regional customs, general principles of law, culture, public international law, source of law.
Abstract: The role of culture in the creation of public international law depends on many variables. The analyses carried out in this article show that while the impact of culture on the creation of public international law derived from special regional customs can be considered relevant, the influence of culture on the creation of rules based on the general principles of law recognised by civilised nations is now becoming less important.
