ABSTRACT
The author discusses international law as a resource in constitutional interpretation. He states that the category of international law covers different kinds of norms like customary international law and bilateral treaties, while the category of foreign law could be understood mainly as referring to the domestic legal systems of foreign states. He mentions several U.S. Supreme Court cases in which the Court has cited to foreign domestic law and to international law binding on other countries.
