Chinese Climate Policy – Institutions and Intent

Paris,Ifri, Les études, juillet 2011

Edited by William C. RAMSAY and Jacques LESOURNE with contributions by Philip ANDREWS-SPEED, CHEN Dezhao and XIA Yishan

Until the late 1990s, the balance of Chinese energy production and consumption was treated by the rest of the world as a net figure. No one knew what was going on inside the Chinese economy – it was a black box. As far as anyone was concerned, the Chinese would not soon be a major factor in world energy markets.  Energy policymakers realized how totally blind they were in 2004 when Chinese electricity production could not keep up with internal demand and the world experienced a surge in liquids demand as Chinese entrepreneurs fired up generator sets across the economy. No country has confronted the need to collect data and formulate coherent policy for nearly a billion and a half consumers. A number of institutional arrangements have succeeded each other until now, when stronger energy policy and administrative functions of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) are gaining traction. NDRC vice-chairman Zhang Guobao has maintained a steady hand on Chinese energy-policy evolution for several years – overseeing the increasing coherence of Chinese domestic and international energy policy – but the tension with powerful state enterprises and other vested interests still effectively defies efforts to truly centralize Chinese national-level energy policy and program authority. This study identifies the nature of the forces that drive or constrain change within China’s energy sector, and explores the Chinese approach to climate change.

Transitional Jurisprudence and the ECHR: Justice, Politics and Rights

(Cambridge Univ. Press, 2011)

Antoine Buyse & Michael Hamilton

The European Convention on Human Rights has been a standard-setting text for transitions to peace and democracy in states throughout Europe. This book analyses the content, role and effects of the jurisprudence of the European Court relating to societies in transition. It features a wide range of transitional challenges, from killings by security forces in Northern Ireland to property restitution in East Central Europe, and from political upheaval in the Balkans to the position of religious minorities and Roma. Has the European Court developed a specific transitional jurisprudence? How do politics affect the ways in which the Court’s judgments are implemented? Does the Court’s case-law itself become woven into narratives of struggle in transitional societies? This book seeks to answer these questions by highlighting the unique role of Europe’s main guardian of human rights, the Court in Strasbourg. It includes a comparison with the Inter-American and African human rights systems.

Making Global Trade Governance Work for Development

(Cambridge Uni. Press, August 2011)

Edited by Carolyn Deere Birkbeck

Discussion of the governance of global trade and the multilateral trading system is too often dominated by developed-country scholars and opinion-makers, with inadequate attention given to developing country perspectives. Making Global Trade Governance Work for Development gathers a diversity of developing country views on how to improve the governance of global trade and the WTO to better advance sustainable development and respond to the needs of developing countries. With contributions by senior scholars, commentators and practitioners, the essays combine new, empirically-grounded research with practical insights about the trade policy-making process. They consider the specific governance issues of interest to developing countries and acknowledge the changing dynamics in the global economy and in trade decision-making.

Global Project Finance, Human Rights and Sustainable Development

(Cambridge Uni. Press, August 2011)

Edited by Sheldon Leader and David Ong

Many infrastructure projects around the world are funded through the project finance method, which combines private financing with public sector backing from multilateral finance institutions such as the World Bank. This examination of the theoretical and practical implications of such funding begins with a discussion of the relationship between the financial structuring of these projects and finance, policy and legal disciplines, especially in the form of investment law, human rights and environmental law. A number of case studies are then examined to provide practical insights into the application (or otherwise) of human rights and sustainable development objectives within such projects. While these theoretical perspectives do not conclude that the project finance method detracts from the application or implementation of human rights and sustainable development objectives, they do highlight the potential for the prioritisation of investment returns at the expense of human rights and environmental protection standards.

State Control over Private Military and Security Companies in Armed Conflict

(Cambridge Uni. Press, August 2011)

Hannah Tonkin

The past two decades have witnessed the rapid proliferation of private military and security companies (PMSCs) in armed conflicts around the world, with PMSCs participating in, for example, offensive combat, prisoner interrogation and the provision of advice and training. The extensive outsourcing of military and security activities has challenged conventional conceptions of the state as the primary holder of coercive power and raised concerns about the reduction in state control over the use of violence. Hannah Tonkin critically analyses the international obligations on three key states – the hiring state, the home state and the host state of a PMSC – and identifies the circumstances in which PMSC misconduct may give rise to state responsibility. This analysis will facilitate the assessment of state responsibility in cases of PMSC misconduct and set standards to guide states in developing their domestic laws and policies on private security.

Rethinking Transitions: Equality and Social Justice in Societies Emerging from Conflict

(Intersentia, 2011)

Edited by Gaby Ore Aguilar and Felipe Gomez Isa

“Transitional Justice initiatives have long been criticized for an allegedly narrow focus on gross and consistent violations of fundamental civil and political rights and not enough attention to abuse of economic, social and cultural rights. But the problem is not whether but how to apply truth, justice, reparations and institutional reform to fundamental – and often ancestral – inequalities in each transitional society. This volume contributes thoughtful and rigorous research to that fundamental question. It constitutes a challenge to the way transitional justice is executed in our time, but also a tribute to the power of the idea that there are indeed concrete and practical means to realize the idea of justice in societies emerging from conflict.” Juan E. Méndez, former President at the International Center for Transitional Justice and UN Special Rapporteur on Torture

Paul Craig and Gráinne de Búrca

Many of the chapters have been substantially or wholly rewritten, including those on key areas such as Institutions, Legal Instruments and the Hierarchy of Norms, Competences, and Legislation and Decision-Making. All of the chapters have been revised to take account of developments in case law and legislation, and to make students aware of cutting edge academic debates. There is in addition a new chapter on EU Criminal Law. The new edition therefore gives readers a clear understanding of the changes made by the Lisbon Treaty and the way in which the legal and political landscape has developed since it came into force.

Extraterritorial Use of Force Against Non-State Actors

(Oxford University Press, 18 August 2011)

Noam Lubell

This book analyses the primary relevant rules of international law applicable to extra-territorial use of force by states against non-state actors. Three frameworks of international law are examined in detail. These are the United Nations Charter and framework of international law regulating the resort to force in the territory of other states; the law of armed conflict, often referred to as international humanitarian law; and the law enforcement framework found in international human rights law. The book examines the applicability of these frameworks to extra-territorial forcible measures against non-state actors, and analyses the difficulties and challenges presented by application of the rules to these measures.

The USA Patriot Act The Decline of Legitimacy in the Age of Terrorism
(Oxford Univ. Press, August 2011)

Timothy Casey

Professor Tim Casey takes on one of the most controversial legal issues of our day in The USA Patriot Act: The Decline of Legitimacy in the Age of Terrorism: Given the threat of terrorism to the U.S. homeland, should the federal government be given wide latitude in conducting domestic surveillance?  In answering this difficult question, Casey both provides an accessible history of the surveillance legislation that preceded the Patriot Act and an analysis of how the government has used the Patriot Act to subvert Constitutional principles.  For students and concerned citizens troubled by the expansion of the government’s surveillance powers, this book will serve as a valuable examination of what went wrong, and how to fix it. Casey offers much needed guidance for how these controversies can be handled in the future.

Virtual Worlds and Criminality

(Springer, 2011)

Kai Cornelius and Dieter Hermann (eds.)

The fusion between virtuality and reality has created a new quality of experience establishing metaverses and virtual worlds. Second Life, Twinity, Entropia Universe or Fregger have experienced rapid growth in recent years and show no signs of slowing down. Not only have countless companies discovered these “virtureal worlds” as marketplaces, but so have fraudsters and other criminals. In this book, European experts from different academic disciplines show how to meet the new challenges arising from virtual worlds. They discuss the reasons for and the impacts of these new forms of criminality as well as the necessity and means of combating them. Moreover, other fundamental issues are examined, such as the addictive potential of virtual-world use, media violence, and conflict resolution problems arising in the context of virtual worlds.

‘Ökonomischer Patriotismus’ in Zeiten regionaler und internationaler Integration: Zur Problematik staatlicher Aufsicht über grenzüberschreitende Unternehmensübernahmen

(Mohr Siebeck, 2011)

Andreas Heinemann

Published in German. “Economic Patriotism” in Times of Regional and International Integration: The Problem of Government Supervision of Cross-Border Takeovers. Today, the importance of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is recognized nearly universally. But when it comes to inbound FDI in the form of cross-border mergers and acquisitions, states see their interests affected. Whereas in some countries the preference of domestic over foreign ownership is restricted to the field of national security, some governments seem to discover a general threat attributed to takeovers from abroad. This inquiry comprises a legal and an economic analysis and includes an examination of the extent to which national control instruments are compatible with international economic law including Regional Integration Agreements.

Published in German. Religious Attire in State Schools in Germany and England: State Neutrality and Individual Rights in a Comparative Law Study. How are Germany and England reacting to society’s increasing religious heterogeneity? Using the handling of the dress code in state schools as an example, Maria Pottmeyer shows that England is deliberately making room for religious diversity whereas in Germany those in charge are trying to face it by prohibiting religious references at school. The author rejects this in her interpretation of the concept of neutrality for schools which is anchored in the Basic Law.
