Justice in International Law: Further Selected Writings

(Cambridge Univ. Press, July 2011)

Stephen M. Schwebel

Since 1947, Stephen M. Schwebel has written some 200 articles and book reviews on topics of international law, international arbitration and international relations. This volume brings together thirty-two of the legal articles and commentaries written since the first volume of his essays was published in 1994. The essays analyze contentious issues of international arbitration and international law such as the place of preparatory work in interpreting treaties, the role of a judge of the nationality of a party to a case sitting in judgment in the International Court of Justice, and the meaning of the term ‘investment’ in ICSID jurisprudence. Together with his unofficial writings, his judicial opinions are catalogued in the list of publications with which this volume concludes.

Law Without Nations

Stanford, Calif. : Stanford University Press, c2011   [xi], 242 p. ; 24 cm

edited by Austin Sarat, Lawrence Douglas, and Martha Merrill Umphrey

The possibility of law in the absence of a nation would seem to strip law from its source of meaning and value. At the same time, law divorced from nations would clear the ground for a cosmopolitan vision in which the prejudices or idiosyncrasies of distinctive national traditions would give way to more universalist groundings for law. These alternately dystopian and utopian viewpoints inspire this original collection of essays on law without nations. This book examines the ways in which the growing internationalization of law affects domestic national law, the relationship between cosmopolitan legal ideas and understandings of national identity, and the intersections of identity and law based on the liberal tradition of jurisprudence and transnational influences. Ultimately, Law without Nationsoffers sharp analyses of the fraught relationship between the nation and the state—and the legal forms and practices that they require, constitute, and violently contest.

The Practice of the United Nations in Combating Terrorism from 1946 to 2008: Questions of Legality and Legitimacy

Antwerp, Netherlands: Intersentia, 2011

Bibi van Ginkel

Over the last thirty years, the UN has shown an unmistakable interest in combating terrorism. This book analyses the practice of the General Assembly and the Security Council in combating terrorism. It answers the question whether these organs, taking into account their powers and the constitutional and public international law limitations thereof, best contribute to a universal anti-terrorism policy.  In order to assess whether both organs are indeed fulfilling this purpose, the analysis of the adopted counter-terrorism measures of both the General Assembly and the Security Council focuses on their legality and legitimacy. Whereas the measures adopted should clearly fall within the powers of the organs (legality), testing the legitimacy of these measures adds another layer of information with regard to the quality of these measures. The analysis of the legitimacy of the anti-terrorism measures is based on the theory of Thomas Franck, who claims that a rule’s legitimacy provides information on the pull to compliance of the measure. Apart from this critical analysis of the legality and the legitimacy ofmore than 130 resolutions adopted by both UN organs, this book offers an essential insight in the way the degree of legitimacy of certain measures can be improved, and how the overall effectiveness of thecounter-terrorism policy of the UN can be strengthened.

Governing Disorder:
UN Peace Operations, International Security,
and Democratization in the Post-Cold War Era

(Penn State University Press, 2011)

Laura Zanotti

The end of the Cold War created an opportunity for the United Nations to reconceptualize the rationale and extent of its peacebuilding efforts, and in the 1990s, democracy and good governance became legitimizing concepts for an expansion of UN activities. The United Nations sought not only to democratize disorderly states but also to take responsibility for protecting people around the world from a range of dangers, including poverty, disease, natural disasters, and gross violations of human rights. National sovereignty came to be considered less an entitlement enforced by international law than a privilege based on states’ satisfactory performance of their perceived obligations. In Governing Disorder, Laura Zanotti combines her firsthand experience of UN peacebuilding operations with the insights of Michel Foucault to examine the genealogy of post-Cold War discourses promoting international security. Zanotti also maps the changes in legitimizing principles for intervention, explores the specific techniques of governance deployed in UN operations, and identifies the forms of resistance these operations encounter from local populations and the (often unintended) political consequences they produce. Case studies of UN interventions in Haiti and Croatia allow her to highlight the dynamics at play in the interactions between local societies and international peacekeepers.

The Transformation of International Environmental Law

(Hart Publishing, 2011)

Edited by Yann Kerbrat and Sandrine Maljean-Dubois

Faced with environmental challenges which are becoming more serious, urgent, and global, international law has emerged as an essential instrument for state cooperation and an influential element in the harmonization and revitalization of domestic laws. At the same time international law has had to adapt; law-making has become more innovative and fresh mechanisms for implementation have been created. Over the last thirty years international environmental law has therefore experienced significant normative and institutional change. The authors of the present book set out to emphasize these changes, showing how environmental challenges have shaken and sometimes transformed the core categories and concepts of international law. Thus, in addition to being a book about environmental law, this is a work which also charts the way in which international protection of the environment has disrupted general international law. This book is the fruit of a longstanding collaborative project carried out at the Centre for International and European Studies and Research (CERIC). The publication in May 2010 of the French version of the proceedings of an international symposium held under the aegis of the French Society for International Law in Aix-en-Provence in June 2009 drew the first conclusions: Le droit face aux enjeux environnementaux, (Paris, Pedone, 2010). The present book takes them up partly and extends the lessons learned, this time in English.

Transition from Illegal Regimes under International Law

(Cambridge Univ. Press, July 2011)

Yaël Ronen, Sha’arei Mishpat Law College

Yaël Ronen analyses the international legal ramifications of illegal territorial regimes, namely the illegal annexation of territory or illegal declarations of independence, by reference to the stage of transition from an illegal territorial regime to a lawful one. Six case studies (Namibia, Zimbabwe, the Baltic States, the South African Bantustans, East Timor and northern Cyprus) are used to explore the tension between the invalidity of the illegal regime’s acts and their effectiveness, with respect to the international relations of such territories, their domestic legal systems, the status of settlers and land transfers. Relying heavily on primary and previously unconsidered sources, she focuses on the international legal constraints on the post-transition regime’s policy, particularly in the context of international human rights law.

Peace And Justice At The International Criminal Court: A Court of Last Resort
(Edward Elgar, 2011)
Errol P. Mendes

This authoritative book addresses the greatest challenge facing the International Criminal Court since its historic establishment in 1998: reconciling the demand for justice for the most serious crimes known to humanity with the promotion of sustainable peace in conflict areas around the world. In describing and analyzing this challenge, Errol Mendes demonstrates that the Court is a product of centuries of global efforts to integrate peace with justice. Focusing on two important prosecutions involving indictments of the president and other senior officials of Sudan and a savage rebel group in Northern Uganda, the author argues that the choice between peace and justice is not a zero sum game. Based on knowledge and experience obtained during his time as a visiting professional at the Court, the author combines insights from Court leaders with his own analysis in his call for greater international cooperation with the Court in fulfilling its mandate and overcoming other obstacles that threaten its work into the future.

Transnational Corporations And International Law: Accountability in the Global Buisness Environment
(Edward Elgar, 2011)
Alice de Jonge

Transnational Corporations and International Law provides a comprehensive overview of existing laws and principles aimed at regulating the international behaviour of transnational corporations (TNCs). Alice de Jonge highlights the inadequacies and possibilities inherent in the current regulatory network and also outlines a theoretical framework for bringing TNCs more comprehensively under the coverage of internationally-agreed standards of behaviour. The book then explores institutional avenues for bringing TNCs to account when such standards are breached. The author also provides a unique perspective on the role of TNCs in the evolution of international environmental law. She concludes by highlighting the need for what the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on the issue of human rights and transnational corporations and other business enterprises has called ‘principled pragmatism’, in developing both the theory and practice of international law as applied to global corporations.

(Edward Elgar, 2011)

Alexandra Gatto

This well-researched book examines how the European Union could do more to ensure that EU-based multinational enterprises (MNEs) respect human rights when operating in third world countries. Alexandra Gatto identifies the primary obligations of MNEs as developed by international law, and investigates how the EU has promoted the respect of human rights obligations by the MNEs to date.

Human Rights In Asia

(Edward Elgar, 2011)

Tom Davis & Brian Galligan

Human Rights in Asia focuses on the relationships between political regimes, institutions and cultures, and external actors, such as international organisations, NGOs and business. The contributing authors provide important discussions on Burma, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines. Thematic chapters then go on to frame these individually focused contributions, by examining the international pressure to ‘normalise’ rights regimes, and the relationship between Islam and rights in the region. Providing a unique combination of country-specific and thematic analysis, this book will be a fascinating and beneficial read for postgraduate and undergraduate students in human rights and international relations, as well as for scholars in politics, human rights, international relations and government and NGO analysts.

Nuclear Weapons, Justice And The Law

(Edward Elgar, 2011)

Elli Louka

It is often argued that the nuclear non-proliferation order divides the world into nuclear-weapon-haves and have-nots based on a nuclear apartheid. Employing a careful and nuanced discussion of this claim, Elli Louka explores here the emergence of new threshold nuclear weapon states (TNWS), transparency standards, and precautionary preemption. The author analyzes how a carbon-constrained future and energy security are bringing about a renaissance for the nuclear energy industry. This shift will bring more TNWS to the international arena, thereby altering the politics of use of the nuclear instrument. In addition to examining the architecture of the nuclear non-proliferation order, she discusses the fairness and effectiveness of international and regional institutions and scenarios for the future of nuclear weapons. A sophisticated study of a complex issue, this book is a must-read for policymakers and all those who wish to understand the intricacies and challenges of developing institutions to address the nuclear weapons threat.

The OECD:

A Study of Organisational Adaptation

(Edward Elgar, 2011)

Peter Carroll & Aynsley Kellow

The book reveals, for the first time, the origins, growth and complex role of the OECD as it celebrates its fiftieth anniversary, showing how it has adapted – for the most part successfully – to the changing needs of its members, both large and small. Peter Carroll and Aynsley Kellow provide a comprehensive account and analysis of the origins, development and, most intriguingly, the recent reforms that characterise the OECD. They argue that this increasingly complex organisation has fulfilled its design to be an adaptive, learning organisation and explore how the OECD has spread its wings beyond its European and North American roots to become an increasingly influential body in global governance. Topical chapters include the OECD’s work on health and the environment, relations with international, intergovernmental organisations, the OECD’s structure and also the key processes. This fascinating book will be warmly welcomed by academics, researchers and postgraduate students in a wide range of fields including international relations, international business, political science, public policy and public administration. Public servants in national departments and agencies – particularly those with significant international activities – will also find the book to be of great interest, as will professionals within international organisations such as IMF, World Bank, EU, UN and (of course) the OECD itself.

International Patent Law:

Cooperation, Harmonization and an Institutional Analysis of WIPO and the WTO

(Edward Elgar)

Alexander Stack

When is international patent law cooperation and harmonization welfare-enhancing? What is the role of international institutions – WIPO and the WTO – in furthering such harmonization? This book explores these questions from a global welfarist, rationalist perspective. It grounds its analysis in innovation theory and a examination of patent law and prosecution, incorporating the uncertainty of patent law’s impact on welfare at a detailed level, dynamic changes, the skewed nature of patent value and the difficulty of textually capturing patent concepts. Using tools from new institutional economics, it explores future design implications for international institutions, analyzing grounds for international cooperation as collective action problems and applying historical, political and transaction cost analyses. Academics, students and practitioners interested in international economic law, specifically in respect of patents, innovation and intellectual property, the TRIPs Agreement, the WTO and WIPO will find this book essential. It will also prove insightful for researchers whose primary background is in international relations or international political economy, but are seeking an introduction to the patent and intellectual property field.

Hegemony in International Society

(Oxford Univ. Press, 2011)

Can international legitimacy operate even in a deformed balance of power, and when there is only one dominant state? Conventionally, hegemony has been perceived as a threat to international society. But how then is international order to be maintained, if this still requires a managerial role on the part of the great powers? IR theory has not taken that problem sufficiently seriously. This study makes a sharp distinction between primacy, denoting merely a form of material power, and hegemony, understood as a legitimate practice, and as giving rise to a form of social power. Adopting an English School approach, the author suggests hegemony be considered as one potential institution of international society, and hence as one possible mechanism of international order. The book reviews some relevant historical cases (the Concert of Europe, Pax Britannica and Pax Americana) and argues that, instead of one model of hegemony, these represent several different variants: importantly, each displays its own distinctive legitimacy dynamics. Once these are appreciated, they can help us identify the possible institutional forms of hegemony in contemporary international society. This is done through three cases, examining in turn US policy on the UN Security Council, in East Asia, and on climate change. The overall argument challenges the limited post-Cold War debate about primacy, and the equally simplistic projections about the future distribution of power to which it gives rise. In doing so, it offers a major re-thinking of the concept of hegemony in international relations.

War by Contract:
Human Rights, Humanitarian Law, and Private Contractors

(Oxford Univ. Press, Apr. 2011)

Edited by Francesco Francioni and Natalino Ronzitti

The growth in scope and importance of the private military and security industry in the past decade has challenged the role of the state as the main provider of defence and security functions. At the same time it has put under stress the state’s authority to properly oversee the conduct of private contractors and has raised the question of whether existing rules of domestic law and international law are adequate to ensure their accountability in the event of abuse. This book addresses this question through the lens of international human rights law and international humanitarian law. It presents a systematic analysis of the way in which these two bodies of international law, applicable in times of peace and in the event of armed conflict, may be interpreted and implemented in a way so as to fill possible accountability gaps. Human rights and humanitarian law obligations are analysed from the point of view of their applicability to the states involved, to international organizations, and to the companies and their individual employees. Victims’ access to civil remedies and the criminal prosecution of private contractors, as well as new policy issues, such as the use of private contractors in the fight against piracy, are also covered in the book.

Recognition and enforcement of judgements : comparative and international perspective  = Reconnaissance et exécution des jugements : perspectives comparées et internationales
Aix-en-Provence : Presses Universitaires d’Aix-Marseille, 2010   567 p. ; 25 cm

Russell Weaver, François Lichère (eds./dir.)

Les 5 et 6 juin 2009 s’est tenu à la faculté de droit d’Aix-en-Provence (France) le 6ème forum sur les recours. Ce forum était co-sponsorisé par l’Université d’Aix-Marseille III (grâce au programme “global law”, au programme du sixième centenaire de l’Université et au Centre de Recherches Administratives), par la Région Provence Alpes Côté d’Azur, par la faculté de droit de l’Université Washington & Lee (États-Unis), la faculté de droit de l’université de Windsor (Canada), la faculté de droit de l’Université d’Emory (États-Unis), la faculté de droit de l’Université de Louisville (États-Unis) et par Lexis-Nexis.  À l’image des forums précédents, un «thème de discussion» était établi. De fait, cette année, deux thèmes étaient prévus : «la reconnaissance et l’exécution des jugements (perspectives comparées et internationales)» et «les recours et l’analyse économique». Les articles publiés dans ce volume correspondant au premier thème (reconnaissance et exécution des jugements) sont basés sur ces discussions.  Plusieurs articles traitent directement des aspects d’exécution des jugements. L’exécution forcée comme remède et comment y procéder de David Capper examine l’exécution des jugements en Irlande du Nord, et adresse «une supplique adressée aux membres de la doctrine spécialisés dans les Remédies afin qu’ils prennent au sérieux l’exécution forcée des jugements et qu’ils la reconnaissent comme faisant partie intégrante de leur discipline». La futilité comme facteur discrétionnaire dans les contentieux internes et internationaux, du Professeur Normann Witzleb, discute de la doctrine d’equity qui permet à une cour de refuser l’octroi d’un remède lorsque la mesure sollicitée est susceptible d’être futile et différentes approches des juridictions. La portabilité des mesures judiciaires en common law du Professeur Stephen A.G. Pitel se concentre sur les problèmes de «portabilité» quand les requérants cherchent à obtenir l’exécution des jugements dans des États étrangers. Il conclut que les pays de common law ont évolué «vers une portabilité accrue des jugements». Bien qu’il pense que «des différences significatives subsistent entre les pays», il croit que la tendance est à la réduction ou à l’élimination des obstacles à l’exécution, et estime que «la common law doit poursuivre la remise en question des fondements des barrières qui entravent encore la portabilité de ces mesures».

Court of Remorse
Inside the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda 

(Univ. of Wisconson Press, 2011)

Thierry Cruvellier
Translated by Chari Voss

When genocidal violence gripped Rwanda in 1994, the international community recoiled, hastily withdrawing its peacekeepers. Late that year, in an effort to redeem itself, the United Nations Security Council created the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda to seek accountability for some of the worst atrocities since World War II: the genocide suffered by the Tutsi and crimes against humanity suffered by the Hutu. But faced with competing claims, the prosecution focused exclusively on the crimes of Hutu extremists. No charges would be brought against the Tutsi-led Rwandan Patriotic Front, which ultimately won control of the country. The UN, as if racked by guilt for its past inaction, gave in to pressure by Rwanda’s new leadership. With the Hutu effectively silenced, and the RPF constantly reminding the international community of its failure to protect the Tutsi during the war, the Tribunal pursued an unusual form of one-sided justice, born out of contrition.

Peacebuilding : preventing violent conflict in a complex world

Cambridge ; Malden, Mass. : Polity, 2010   vii, 251 p. : ill. ; 21 cm

Dennis J.D. Sandole

Preventing violent conflicts and establishing comprehensive lasting peace in some of the world’s most turbulent regions has become the new global imperative. But to be effective, peacebuilding must be a multilateral, not a unilateral process. Even for the world’s sole surviving superpower, promoting and sustaining durable peace requires communication, co-ordination, co-operation, and collaboration between local, national and international actors, nongovernmental as well as governmental.

In this book, Dennis Sandole explores the theory and practice of peacebuilding, discussing the differences and similarities between core aspects of peace processes, namely violent conflict prevention; conflict management; conflict settlement; conflict resolution and conflict transformation. Assuming no prior knowledge on the part of the student reader, the volume distinguishes between proactive and reactive peacebuilding as strategies to pre-empt or otherwise respond to global problems, such as identity conflicts, failing/failed states, terrorism, pandemics, poverty, forced migrations, climate change, ecological degradation, and their combined effects. Drawing on a wide range of conflicts such as Bosnia-Herzegovina, Cambodia, East Timor, Haiti, South Africa and Macedonia, the book debates the `lessons learned’ from past experiences of reactive as well as proactive peacebuilding, plus the challenges which lie ahead for those striving to bring about sustainable peace, security and stability to war-torn or otherwise fragile regions of the globe.

The Execution of Illegal Orders and International Criminal Responsibility

(Springer 2011)

Hiromi Sato

The legal consequence of the superior orders defense has long been debated as one of the major problems in international criminal law. Several controversial issues such as the immunity of the state, the absolute character of military discipline, and immunity on the grounds of mistake of law and/or coercion have been complexly interwoven in the debates. The Execution of Illegal Orders and International Criminal Responsibility provides a comprehensive portrait of the relevant debates at the international level up to the present, analyzes the conflicting views, and shows the significance of the development of international rules for the superior orders defense as well as the implication of the fact that issues concerning some detailed or related rules have been left unresolved. This study presents to present a new standpoint not only on dealing with the problem of the superior orders defense but also on reconsidering the international stipulation of rulemaking with regard to criminal matters.

Terrorism and National Security Reform
(Cambridge Univ. Press, 2011)

Jordan Tama (Author)

Terrorism and National Security Reform demonstrates that blue-ribbon commissions can be powerful vehicles for policy change, overturning the conventional wisdom that views them only as devices for passing the buck. Jordan Tama explains how the unique political credibility of commissions can enable them to forge bipartisan consensus on tough policy challenges. He also shows that commissions are most valuable during a crisis, when policymakers face pressure to make changes but frequently cannot agree on what to do. Using an original database, case studies, and more than 200 interviews of policymakers and commission participants, Tama reveals how commissions have shaped Barack Obama’s plan for ending the Iraq War, spurred the largest government and intelligence overhauls since 1947, and driven many other elements of U.S. counterterrorism policy. In an era of unrelenting partisanship and extreme polarization, this book shows that commissions are increasingly valuable policymaking tools.

Empire of Humanity: A History of Humanitarianism

(Cornell Univ. Press 2011)

Michael Barnett

Empire of Humanity explores humanitarianism’s remarkable growth from its humble origins in the early nineteenth century to its current prominence in global life. In contrast to most contemporary accounts of humanitarianism that concentrate on the last two decades, Michael Barnett ties the past to the present, connecting the antislavery and missionary movements of the nineteenth century to today’s peacebuilding missions, the Cold War interventions in places like Biafra and Cambodia to post–Cold War humanitarian operations in regions such as the Great Lakes of Africa and the Balkans; and the creation of the International Committee of the Red Cross in 1863 to the emergence of the major international humanitarian organizations of the twentieth century. Based on extensive archival work, close encounters with many of today’s leading international agencies, and interviews with dozens of aid workers in the field and at headquarters, Empire of Humanity provides a history that is both global and intimate.

The Image before the Weapon: A Critical History of the Distinction between Combatant and Civilian

(Cornell Univ. Press 2011)

Helen M. Kinsella

Since at least the Middle Ages, the laws of war have distinguished between combatants and civilians under an injunction now formally known as the principle of distinction. The principle of distinction is invoked in contemporary conflicts as if there were an unmistakable and sure distinction to be made between combatant and civilian. As is so brutally evident in armed conflicts, it is precisely the distinction between civilian and combatant, upon which the protection of civilians is founded, cannot be taken as self-evident or stable. Helen M. Kinsella documents that the history of international humanitarian law itself admits the difficulty of such a distinction.

Uti possidetis et sécession

(Dalloz 2011)

Anouche Beaudouin

Si l’existence de l’État est un fair, ce fait doit être apprécié en lui-même et l’assise territoriale de l’État doit correspondre à son effectivité sans qu’il v ait lieu de s’attacher aux limites administratives pré-existantes dans l’État prédécesseur. C’est cette thèse qu’Anouche Beaudouin s’emploie à démontrer qu’elle n’a que l’apparence de la logique. Bien que le mot n’apparaisse pas dans l’intitulé de la thèse, c’est donc l’effectivité qui va se trouver au centre de la réflexion : que l’on y voie le reflet de la neutralité du droit international à l’égard de la sécession (l’existence de l’État est une question de pur fait) ou une norme “définitionnelle” (l’État ne peut exister que s’il répond effectivement à la définition qu’en donne le droit international), la question à laquelle l’auteure entend répondre appelle la même réponse : “la la référence aux entités administratives [de l’État prédécesseur, c’est-à-dire l’uti possidetis] est une manière d’apprécier l’étendue de l’effectivité”, “une interprétation de l’effectivité à l’oeuvre lors des sécessions dans sa dimension spatiale.”

Sovereign Defaults before International Courts and Tribunals

(Cambridge Univ. Press 2011)

Michael Waibel

International law on sovereign defaults is underdeveloped because States have largely refrained from adjudicating disputes arising out of public debt. The looming new wave of sovereign defaults is likely to shift dispute resolution away from national courts to international tribunals and transform the current regime for restructuring sovereign debt. Michael Waibel assesses how international tribunals balance creditor claims and sovereign capacity to pay across time. The history of adjudicating sovereign defaults internationally over the last 150 years offers a rich repository of experience for future cases: US state defaults, quasi-receiverships in the Dominican Republic and Ottoman Empire, the Venezuela Preferential Case, the Soviet repudiation in 1917, the League of Nations, the World War Foreign Debt Commission, Germany’s 30-year restructuring after 1918 and ICSID arbitration on Argentina’s default in 2001. The remarkable continuity in international practice and jurisprudence suggests avenues for building durable institutions capable of resolving future sovereign defaults.

The Legacy of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia

(Oxford Univ. Press 2011)

Bert Swar, Alexander Zahar & Göran Sluiter

 

The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) was established in 1993 and is due to complete its trials by 2011. Easily the most credible and prodigious of the international tribunals established in this period, the ICTY is by far the most important source of case law on international criminal law. This is reflected in the citations it receives by other courts and by learned commentators. Long after its dissolution, the ICTY will most likely serve as an important frame of reference for the International Criminal Court and other courts dealing with international crimes, including national courts. The publication of this book coincides with the year of cessation of trial activity at the ICTY. Its purpose is to mark this significant milestone in international law with a series of in-depth, critical reflections on the institution’s legacy by eminent scholars and practitioners. In the course of seventeen chapters, the contributing authors analyse the main features of the ICTY’s work in an unprecedented examination of the institution’s legitimacy, core principles, methodologies, unstated assumptions, political circumstances, and impact-and indeed, its legacy.

Reclaiming Justice: The International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and Local Courts

(Oxford Univ. Press 2011)

Sanja Kutnjak Ivkovich & John Hagan

For the first time in legal history, an indictment was filed against an acting head of state, Slobodan Milosevic, for crimes that Milosevic allegedly committed while he was in office. Seeking to change the concept of ethnic cleansing from a rationalizing euphemism to an incriminating metaphor, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) set precedents and expanded the boundaries of international criminal and humanitarian law. In Reclaiming Justice, Sanja Kutnjak Ivkovich and John Hagan add to prior literature about the ICTY by providing a comprehensive view of how people from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, and Serbia view and evaluate the ICTY. Kutnjak Ivkovich and Hagan ask crucial questions about international justice in a systematic and comprehensive manner, looking into the ICTY’s legality and judicial independence, as well as specific issues of substantive and procedural justice and collective and individual responsibility. Kutnjak Ivkovich and Hagan provide an in-depth analysis of perceptions about the ICTY, the subsequent work of its local courts, and decisions reached by the local courts. They also examine the relationship between the views of the ICTY and ethnicity, a particularly relevant notion because the war was fought largely along ethnic lines.

Emerging areas of human rights in the 21st century : the role of the universal declaration of human rights

Abingdon, Oxon ; New York, NY : Routledge, 2011   x, 179 p. ; 24 cm

edited by Marco Odello and Sofia Cavandoli

This book includes a set of studies and reflections that have emerged since the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. Encompassing a number of human rights, such as the right to environmental protection, the right to humanitarian aid, and the right to democratic governance, this collection focuses on issues and areas that were not originally mentioned or foreseen in the Declaration but that have since developed into salient topics. These developing rights are considered in the light of contemporary national and international law, as well as against the wider picture and the contexts in which human rights may have effect. Moreover, the topics covered take in a wide range of research fields, including law, politics and criminology
