Abstract:The author draws an intellectual portrait of the great Dutch international lawyer and judge. He considers in particular Rlings contribution to international law made in his two principal works, the booklet on the International Community in an Expanded World and The Hague lectures on the Law of Warfare. He then briefly recalls the views about Rling expressed in the 1990s by two other leading international lawyers, R.-J. Dupuy and E. Jimnez de Archaga. He finally assesses the merits and the limits of Rlings major writings.
