Fifteen Years of NAFTA: Section 11 Arbitration

(Juris Publishing, Sept. 2011)

Frédéric Bachand, Editor

The seventh in the International Arbitration Institute (IAI) series, Fifteen Years of NAFTA: Section 11 Arbitration compiles the papers from leading authorities on NAFTA dispute resolution, presented at the international academic conference, 15 Years of NAFTA Chapter 11 Arbitration, in Montreal on 25 September 2009. Dealing wholly with investment arbitration, the work focuses specifically on the controversial Chapter 11 feature of the NAFTA agreement and its influence on international investment law. Chapter 11 arbitration is an area of growing importance for both practitioners and academics, and the work covers both substantive and procedural issues.

Investment Arbitration Decisions

(Juris Publishing, Sept. 2011)

Noah Rubins, Editor

Investment Arbitration Decisions gives the reader extracts from significant investment arbitration award decisions. These decisions are commented on by distinguished arbitrators, lawyers, justices and other legal professionals. In this volume are presented a range of materials that were first published in the Stockholm International Arbitration Review in its rubric dedicated to investment arbitration. For several years, SIAR offered to its readers decisions, awards and commentaries to be found nowhere else in print, at a time when the discipline of investment arbitration was still rather novel and in a period of intense expansion. This volume serves as a reminder of the role that Scandinavia and the SCC have played in promoting investment arbitration and facilitating investment-related disputes in recent years.

La nécessité en droit international
De l’état de nécessité aux situations de nécessité
(Brill, 2011)

Sarah Cassella

La Commission du droit international, après avoir longuement hésité, a inscrit l’état de nécessité dans sa codification de la responsabilité des États en tant que circonstance excluant l’illicéité. L’objet de cette étude est de démontrer qu’il s’agit d’un mécanisme beaucoup plus diffus et fondamental du droit international, intimement lié à ses caractéristiques propres. Il a comme fonction la limitation des obligations substantielles des États lors de la survenance d’un fait-condition – la situation de nécessité – afin d’éviter que l’application du droit ne génère un coût social excessif. Sa réalisation requiert toujours une pondération des intérêts en conflit. Seulement lorsqu’un coût social excessif ne peut être évité, l’état de nécessité intervient dans le cadre des obligations secondaires de la responsabilité internationale, en tant que circonstance atténuante.

(English translation):  After much hesitation, the International Law Commission codified the state of necessity as a circumstance precluding wrongfulness in the field of State responsibility. This study aims to demonstrate that it is a much wider mechanism, essential to international law and strictly connected to its own characteristics.

Principles of Islamic International Criminal Law

(Brill, 2011)

Farhad Malekian

While the system of international law is improving enormously and certain legal provisions are becoming an integral part of jus cogens norms, this body of law must be studied together with other systems which have basically been effective in its development. The principles of the rule of law must be evaluated collectively rather than selectively. In fact, most Islamic nations have ratified the ICC Statute. They have thereby contributed to the establishment of the pillars of morality, equality, peace and justice. At the same time, those pillars may be strengthened by means of an accurate interpretation of the principles of international criminal laws by all parties. The objective of these comparative philosophies is to examine their core principles, similarities and differences. The intention is to indicate that the variation in theories may not obstruct the legal implementation of international criminal law if their dimensions are judged objectively and with the noblest of motives towards mankind.

Sex and Gender Crimes in the New International Law

Past, Present, Future

(Brill, 2011)

Alona Hagay-Fre

In times of conflict, women have traditionally been excluded from protection of the law. This book analyzes the treatment of sex and gender crimes under international law by identifying various legal eras, from the inception of international criminal law until its most recent formulation, the Rome Statute. The author conducts her critical journey armed with insights about the development of the crime of rape in domestic law and feminist theories, and exposes gaps and silences in international law’s treatment of sex and gender crimes. The author claims that the underlying stratum of sex crimes – the gender stratum – must be acknowledged. Hence, it is not sufficient to treat rape as another offense under existing traditional crime categories. It must also be anchored as a separate crime category that clearly establishes the boundaries of the legal norm, harmonizes different nations’ laws, and eradicates the remnants of patriarchy linked to this offense.

Maritime Labour Convention, 2006

(Brill, 2011)

Moira McConnell, Dominick Devlin, Cleopatra Doumbia-Henry

 

The Maritime Labour Convention, 2006 (MLC, 2006), adopted by the International Labour Organization (ILO) in 2006, is the fourth pillar of the international maritime regulatory regime. It both fills a gap in the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and complements the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) core conventions on ship safety, & security, training and pollution prevention.

Aimed at achieving both “decent work” for seafarers and fair competition for shipowners, the MLC, 2006 covers most aspects of maritime labour. It establishes an effective enforcement and compliance system with, for the first time, certification of seafarers’ working and living conditions on ships. With its interwoven labour and social rights and economic goals, the MLC, 2006 is an international legal instrument that will have a significant impact on approaches to labour standards in other globalized sectors.

Helemaalvreemd is ditnatuurlijkniet: het Europeesrechtheeftzichinmiddelszodanigontwikkeld, datersprake is van een ‘autonomerechtsorde’ die zich op veelpuntenonderscheidt van de rechtsordes van andereinternationaleorganisaties.

Forests and People

(Earthscan Publications, July 2011)

Thomas Sikor and Johannes Stahl

A human rights-based agenda has received significant attention in writings on general development policy, but less so in forestry. Forests and People presents a comprehensive analysis of the rights-based agenda in forestry, connecting it with existing work on tenure reform, governance rights, and cultural rights,. As the editors note in their introduction, the attention to rights in forestry differs from “rights-based approaches” in international development and other natural resource fields in three critical ways. First, redistribution is a central demand of activists in forestry but not in other fields. Many forest rights activists call for not only the redirection of forest benefits but also the redistribution of forest tenure to redress historical inequalities. Second, the rights agenda in forestry emerges from numerous grassroots initiatives, setting forest-related human rights apart from approaches that derive legitimacy from transnational human rights norms and are driven by international and national organizations. Third, forest rights activists attend to individual as well as peoples’ collective rights whereas approaches in other fields tend to emphasize one or the other set of rights.

Arbitration with the Arab Countries

(WoltersKluwer Law and Business, July 2011)

Abdul Hamid El-Ahdab

This book is intended to provide lawyers and businesses with an overview of the legal systems and processes in relation to arbitration in all the Arab jurisdictions in the Middle East and North Africa: Algeria; Bahrain; Egypt; Iraq; Jordan; Kuwait; Lebanon; Libya; Morocco; Oman; Qatar;Saudi Arabia; Sudan; Syria; Tunisia; United Arab Emirates; and Yemen. In addition, there will be a chapter on Muslim arbitration law (Shari’a), the Amman Arab Convention on Commercial Arbitration (1987) and the Riyad Arab Convention on Judicial Cooperation (1983). The new edition will be completely revised, updated, and expanded, providing commentary, an overview of case law, and (translations of the) relevant statutes. Each chapter will follow the same outline to ensure that they are as consistent and comparative as possible and will cover (but not be limited to) issues such as: the legal and judicial system, the agreement to arbitrate, the arbitrators, the proceedings, arbitral awards, the enforcement of the award, and the means of recourse.

Confidentiality in International Commercial Arbitration

(Wolters Kluwer Law and Business, July 2011)
Ileana M. Smeureanu

After neutrality and international enforcement, the next most valued feature of international commercial arbitration is confidentiality. For reasons easy to imagine, businessmen do not want their trade secrets, business plans, strategies, contracts, financial results or any other types of business information to be publicly accessible, as would commonly happen in court proceedings. Yet the case law of arbitration shows that in practical terms confidentiality is not to be taken for granted – in fact, it has become one of the most undetermined matters in international arbitration. Although ‘the emperor of arbitration may have clothes,’ as one scholar has quipped, his raiments of secrecy can be ‘torn with surprising ease’.  This book deciphers the current degree of confidentiality in international commercial arbitration as reflected by the most important arbitration rules, national laws, other arbitration-related enactments, and practices of arbitral tribunals and domestic courts globally. Drawing on this data and analysis, the author then sets forth criteria to assess the breach of confidentiality in international arbitration and the proper rules for protecting or sanctioning such breaches.

European Public Procurement. Legislative History of the “Remedies’ Directives 89/665/EEC and 92/13/EEC

(Wolters Kluwer Law and Business, July 2011)
Jan M. Hebly

The third in Dr Hebly’s remarkable series of legislative histories of European law concerning the procurement procedures of contracting authorities in the classical sectors and entities operating in the water, energy, transport, and postal services sectors, this volume focuses on review procedures and remedies as specified in Directives 89/665/EEC and 92/13/EEC, as amended by Directive 2007/66/EC. Earlier publications involved the legislative history of Directive 2004/17/EC (contract rules and procedures) and Directive 2004/18/EC (coordination of procedures for awarding contracts). This new volume gathers in one place all the relevant documents that led to the adoption of the Remedies Directives, as well as to their subsequent amendments.

Intermediation of Insurance and Financial Services in European VAT

(Wolters Kluwer Law and Business, July 2011)
Claus Bohn Jespersen

The current European VAT legislation encompassing insurance and financial services, including intermediation thereof, dates back to the adoption of the Sixth VAT Directive in 1977. The definitions do not, however, encompass the current complexity of insurance and financial transactions. This has resulted in considerable confusion for fiscal authorities and for businesses when deciding upon the application of the VAT exemption. As the correct VAT treatment has a significant economic impact on businesses, a great number of cases have been referred to the Court of Justice of the European Union. This is also the reason why the European Commission presented its proposal for the future treatment of insurance and financial services, including intermediation thereof, in November 2007. The political process has not yet been finalised and if the Commission’s proposal is agreed upon, the question of understanding the definitions still exists. This book deals with the exemption for intermediation of insurance and financial services within European VAT.

Regulation of Energy in International Trade Law. WTO, NAFTA and Energy Charter

(Wolters Kluwer Law and Business, July 2011)
Yulia Selivanova

To what extent should cross-border energy trade be regulated? Given the irreducible political and strategic component of energy production, transportation, distribution and use, is a truly effective international agreement possible or even desirable? These questions loom ever larger in considerations of the global economy. Despite clear interdependence, as things stand the interests of consuming and producing countries differ significantly, and this makes the negotiation of internationally binding rules covering energy very difficult. Starting from the premise that a multilateral legal framework is the surest way to achieve predictability and transparency under conditions of increasing reliance on internationally traded energy, the essays gathered in this book treat the many complex interlocking issues raised by examining that desideratum in the light of current reality. Concentrating on the application of WTO agreements to energy trade – as well as energy-related issues addressed in the current WTO negotiations – the authors offer in-depth discussion and analysis of a range of issues.

Patents in Germany and Europe.Procurement, Enforcement and Defense. An International Handbook

(Wolters Kluwer Law and Business, June 2011)
Alexander Harguth, S Carlson

Germany’s patent system presents unique opportunities and risks for companies doing business abroad. It is one of the world’s top jurisdictions for patent enforcement because of the size of the German market, the speed and cost of the proceedings, the expertise and reputation of the judges, and its advantageous “split system” that resolves infringement separately from validity challenges. Either as a stand-alone enforcement venue, or as part of a global IP strategy, Germany should be at the forefront of companies’ intellectual property plans. This handbook provides attorneys worldwide both the fundamental framework and practical pointers for navigating Germany’s patent system. The book opens with an overview of the judicial system, along with a background on patent prosecution and opposition proceedings in the European Patent Office. The handbook then explains key aspects of patent litigation in Germany, including: Trial procedure; Claim construction; Damages; Nullity (invalidity) proceedings; Discovery; Customs enforcement actions; Employment law regarding inventions; and Budgeting of patent cases.

Export Control Law and Regulations Handbook. A Practical Guide to Military and Dual- Use Goods Trade Restrictions and Compliance 2ed

(Wolters Kluwer Law and Business, June 2011)
Yann Aubin, Arnaud Idiart

Export control laws and regulations are the legal framework for countries around the globe to ensure world peace and stability and their importance in international trade is growing. The reasons behind this growth lie in the evolution of technology, the fact that increasing amounts of goods/services are subject to controls (such goods/services representing a very large segment of world trade), and in the increasing threat linked to terrorism. Consequently, export control laws and regulations have become extremely important for those involved in the international trade of goods/services with a direct – or even indirect – military use. Export control laws and regulations are complex, difficult to understand, and constantly evolving. Infringements can lead to very serious sanctions (civil, administrative, or criminal), and, not to be minimized, the risk of serious damage to the corporate image of one or more parties to a questionable transaction.

The Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights. Comparative Perspectives from the Asia-Pacific Region

(Wolters Kluwer Law and Business, June 2011)
ChristophAntons (ed)

Concerted efforts to enforce global intellectual property rights (IPR) continue to focus intensely on the developing countries of East Asia, and China in particular. These efforts have spawned a complex system of legal mechanisms that is still very much in process of evolution, encompassing international and regional conventions, WTO dispute settlements, bilateral and plurilateral treaties, decisions of national courts and regulatory bodies, and a welter of local laws and border controls. This hugely useful book provides more detail than will be found in any other source on the current state of all these measures and their interactions and trends, especially as they affect East Asian markets for IPR-protected products. It gathers together fourteen thoroughly researched essays by internationally-known practitioners and academics with specialties in Asian intellectual property law.

Harmonization, Equivalence and Mutual Recognition of Standards in WTO Law
(Wolters Kluwer Law and Business, June 2011)

Humberto Zúñiga Schroder

Standards are a feature of virtually all areas of trade in products and services. Yet, although standards may achieve an efficient economic exchange, they have discriminatory consequences for trading partners when governments formulate or apply them in such a way as to cause obstacles to trade, thus enrolling standards among the increasingly significant ‘non-tariff barriers’ regulated by the WTO. This unique and original study analyses the functions that standards fulfil in the market, their effect on trade, and the legal regime based on harmonization, equivalence and mutual recognition developed by the WTO to deal with standards. The author investigates the way in which both the WTO Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) and the Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) Measures Agreements regulate these three tools, and discusses key topics including: The definition of the concept ‘International Standard’ in the TBT Agreement; Guidelines on equivalence issued by organizations such as the Codex Alimentarius Commission, the World Organization for Animal Health and the International Plant Protection Convention; and Parallels between the EC mutual recognition regime and the WTO system.

Sub-State Governance through Territorial Autonomy: A Comparative Study in Constitutional Law of Powers, Procedures and Institutions

(Springer, 2011)

Suksi, Markku

This study focuses on territorial autonomy, which is often used in different conflict-resolution and minority situations. Four typical elements are identified on the basis of the historical example of the Memel Territory and the so-called Memel case of the PCIJ; distribution of powers, participation through elections and referendums, executive power of territorial autonomy, and international relations. These elements are used for a comparative analysis of the constitutional law that regulates the position of six currently existing special jurisdictions, the Åland Islands in Finalnd, Scotland in the United Kingdom, Puerto Rico in the United States of America, Hong Kong in China, Aceh in Indonesia and Zanzibar in Tanzania. The current sub-state entities examined can be arranged in relation to Memel in a manner that indicates that Hong Kong and the Åland conform to the typical territorial autonomy, while Puerto Rico and Aceh should probably not be understood as territorial autonomies proper. At the same time, the territorial autonomies can be distinguished from federally organized sub-state entities.

Wilful Misconduct in International Transport Law

(Springer, 2011)

Damar, Duygu

Series: Hamburg Studies on Maritime Affairs, Vol. 22. The main rationale of the conventions on international transport law is to limit the liability of the carrier. However, an aspect common to these conventions is that in cases of “wilful misconduct” the carrier is liable without any financial limitation. “Wilful misconduct” denoting a high degree of fault is an established term in English law. The Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules relating to International Carriage by Air (Warsaw Convention) of 1929 was the first international convention on transport law where the term was
employed. A definition of “wilful misconduct”, which can be found in later conventions regarding carriage of goods and passengers as well, was implemented in the Hague Protocol of 1955, amending the Warsaw Convention. However, the question as to exactly which degree of fault constitutes “wilful misconduct” has to date remained controversial and unanswered. This work seeks to answer this question. To this end, the historical background of the term, together with its function and role in marine insurance law, case law and international transport law, are examined from a comparative perspective.

Global Administrative Law and EU Administrative Law

(Springer, 2011)

Chiti, Edoardo; Mattarella, Bernardo Giorgio (Eds.)

This book seeks to enrich and refine global administrative law and EU administrative law analytical tools by examining their manifold relations. Its aim is to begin to explore the complex reality of the interactions between EU administrative law and global administrative law, to provide a preliminary map of such legal and institutional reality, and to review it. The book is the first attempt to analyze a dense area of new legal issues. The first part of the book contains core elements of a general theory of the relationships between global and EU administrative law: comparative inquiries, exchanges of legal principles, and developing linkages. The second part is devoted to special regulatory regimes, in which global and European law coexist, though not always peacefully. Several sectors are considered: cultural heritage, medicines, climate change, antitrust, accounting and auditing, banking supervision, and public procurement.

Anti-Monopoly Law and Practice in China

(Oxford University Press, July 2011)

H. Stephen Harris, Peter J. Wang, Mark A. Cohen, Yizhe Zhang, and Sebastien J Evrard

The China Anti-Monopoly Law (AML), which became effective August 1, 2008, is the first comprehensive competition law enacted by China. The AML prohibits a broad array of agreements between competitors and commercial counterparties, as well as competitive conduct by single firms that may harm the competitive process. In addition, it establishes a mandatory administrative review procedure for mergers and acquisitions between companies meeting certain sales thresholds, globally or in China. Beyond these fundamental provisions, the AML prohibits certain types of administrative abuses believed to be prevalent in China and establishes a complex set of administrative agencies with broad powers to enforce the law. Anti-Monopoly Law and Practice in China is the first comprehensive treatment of the AML and the practice of antitrust law under this new system. Each chapter on the substantive provisions of the law includes practical advice on approaches to meeting the challenge of complying with the law’s requirements, including analysis of likely interpretations and applications of the AML based on precedents in related economic laws and actions by other administrative agencies. Where policy choices are uncertain, the text will explore probable developments in China based on comparable applications of competition laws in other jurisdictions.

(RSS Feed Update July 28, 2011)

Chinese Outward Investment

Over the past decade, China has become a major capital exporter, investing in natural resources and infrastructure projects across Africa, Asia and into Latin America. The sustainable development impacts of China’s outward investment are both critical for the global quest for sustainability, as well as for China’s own development.

Agriculture, Water and Investment

Rural areas in developing countries desperately need investment. The challenge is to design a strategy to invest in small-scale farmers, food security and sustainable use of water and other natural resources.

Investment Treaties

Since the early 1990s, countries across the globe have accelerated concluding bilateral and regional investment treaties at a dizzying pace. IISD monitors bilateral and regional investment negotiations and is actively engaged in addressing the sustainable development implications of the disputes that arise from this web of 3000 investment treaties.

Investment Law

The law that applies to transnational investments consists of a complex bundle of international and domestic law and contracts between investors and states. It is important to understand the relevance of each, as well as their interrelationship.

Investment Contracts and Domestic Law

The domestic law of the host state and the investment contracts are the primary determinant of whether an investment will, or will not, make a positive contribution to sustainable development in the host state and local community. How they work together is also critical feature in this regard.

Institutional Reform

The international dispute settlement system opposing investors and host states is fraught with institutional challenges, such as the absence of an independent body to settle disputes, and the lack of transparency and predictability in the application of the rules.

Mining and Investment

IISD’s work on mining looks at it as a critical sector in many developing countries and aims to redress the often limited (or even negative) impacts of large mining projects to the host state from a sustainable development perspective.

Cross-Cutting Issues

IISD works to understand the intersection of international investment and sustainable development, and to make the appropriate policy recommendations.

Clean Energy Investment

There is a pressing need for technological transformation to address climate change, to fundamentally change the way we produce, transport, consume and dispose of goods. Seen in this light, climate change is essentially an investment problem.

Methanex v. USA

The provisions on investment in Chapter 11 of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) can create a dichotomy between investor protection and environmental protection. In the investment dispute between Canada-based Methanex Corporation and the United States this dichotomy was so acute the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) sought and received precedent-setting permission to submit a friend of the court brief in the case. The amicus and tribunal submissions provide background to IISD’s role in the Methanex hearings.

Investment Dispute Settlement

Investment treaties allow investors to sue state parties directly through investment arbitration. This is a powerful tool allowing investors to challenge a wide range of government conduct, including environmental and health measures, as well as many other public interest measures.

Chevron v. Ecuador tribunal rejects indigenous group Fundación Pachamama and IISD’s petition to submit an amicus brief in the jurisdictional phase

On April 18, 2011 the arbitral tribunal in Chevron v. Ecuador, issued a procedural order rejecting the application made by two non-governmental organization petitioners—the International Institute for Sustainable Development and Fundación Pachamama—to serve as amici curiae in the jurisdiction phase of that dispute brought pursuant to the U.S.-Ecuador investment treaty.

Fourth Annual Forum

The Fourth Annual Forum of Developing Country Investment Negotiators, held in New Delhi, India, on October 27-29, 2010, gathered 70 participants from 34 countries to discuss the latest trends and developments in international investment law.

Investment Arbitration

Investment treaties allow investors to sue state parties directly through investment arbitration. This is a powerful tool allowing investors to challenge a wide range of government conduct, including environmental and health measures, as well as many other public interest measures.

Arbitration Rules

IISD is engaged in processes that examine the main rules of investment arbitration.

IISD Model International Agreement on Investment

IISD’s model agreement on investment for sustainable development and negotiators’ handbook challenge the model of investment agreements established 50 years ago.
