With the ever-increasing role of non-sate actors and the shrinking influence of national-states in the age of globalisation, traditional international law faces a tremendous challenge. The article examines the contemporary thinking on the reconfiguration of international law that is more responsive to the emerging new phenomenon in the global horizon. It argues, in particular, that in the changing circumstances in international political economy international lawyers, international relations scholars, and world policy makers should endeavour to design a global legal order by reformulating traditional international law for better global governance.
