The WTO Dispute Settlement System. Challenges of the Environment, Legitimacy and Fragmentation

(Wolters Kluwer, 2011)

Kati Kulovesi

Tensions between economic interests and environmental protection have assumed crisis proportions in awareness at every level of society. In particular, the World Trade Organization has become entangled in controversies related to legitimacy, democracy, environmental protection, and fragmentation of international law, fuelling a contentious debate on the use (or abuse) of environmental norms at the WTO. This book focuses on the role of the WTO dispute settlement system in addressing trade-environment conflicts, highlighting the ways in which environmental issues challenge the legitimacy of WTO jurisprudence.

As a result, a picture of Europeanized German law appears.

Corruption and Human Rights in India: Comparative Perspectives on Transparency and Good Governance

(Oxford University Press, 2011)

C. Raj Kumar

Corruption in India has become a growing and pervasive concern. It undermines not only the democratic institutions, but also the social fabric, political and bureaucratic structure of the Indian society. This book examines corruption from a human rights perspective. It differentiates between two approaches to dealing with corruption, the criminal law enforcement approach to recognizing criminal culpability and the human rights approach to seeking accountability for corruption. Relying on the latter, it analyses corrupt practices that lead to violation of constitutional rights of individuals. In order to address the systemic inefficiencies in dealing with the problem, this work suggests key legislative and institutional reforms. It also critically examines the present anti-corruption framework, and legislative and institutional measures taken by various governments. Advocating accountability and transparency in governance, this book critically focuses on the right to information and the working of central and state information commissions. It compares India’s experience with some other developing countries in South Asia.

Public Services and the European Union: Healthcare, Health Insurance and Education Services

(Springer, 2011)

Laura Nistor

Patients travelling abroad to receive medical treatment, healthcare providers wishing to establish their seat or to provide services abroad, and students travelling abroad for education were faced with different barriers which have been declared illegal by the Court of Justice of the European Union. Member States started to use market mechanisms in their welfare systems and this triggered the application of the European internal market and competition rules. Fears related to whether all these would endanger the well-functioning of the welfare services have been raised by Member States. Several conflicts took shape: between national social interests and European Union economic interests; between individual interests and national general interests; between regulation and deregulation, centralization and decentralization.

The Future of Asylum in the European Union: Problems, proposals and human rights

(Springer, 2011)

Flora Goudappel and Helena Raulus (Eds)

The position and treatment of asylum seekers has been at the centre of attention in most of the Member States of the EU in recent years. These Member States have decided to cooperate more and more on asylum issues. However, this leads to questions concerning the human rights protection of asylum seekers as a result of EU decisions, both at the moment they apply for asylum at the border and during the application procedure. By bringing the opinions of scholars, policy makers and non-governmental organizations together, this book tries to evaluate the consequences and possibilities. The so-called ‘asylum package’ of EU asylum legislation and the coming into force of the Treaty of Lisbon means that EU asylum law will become increasingly important for national asylum decisions.

The Need for an Integrated Regulatory Regime for Aviation and Space

(Springer, 2011)

Ram Jakhu, Tommaso Sgobba and Paul Dempsey (Eds)

In the new space age after the end of the Cold War, orbit and frequency allocations, traffic control, safety, and a number of support services such as space weather forecast and orbital debris monitoring need to be coordinated transparently and effectively by clear rules at an international level. The establishment of an international civil space regulatory framework is the central theme of this book, in particular, the possible extension to space of the international regulatory framework model adopted for aviation more than 60 years ago with the establishment of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

The 2010 OECD Update.: Model Tax Convention and Transfer Pricing Guidelines – A Critical Review
(Wolters Kluwer, 2011)

Dennis Weber and Steef van Weeghel

Virtually all international taxation provisions ultimately stem from two fundamental sources, both originating at the OECD: The Model Tax Convention (on which more than 3,000 bilateral tax treaties are based), and the Transfer Pricing Guidelines. During 2010, major revisions were made to both. This book describes and analyses these amendments in depth. From a variety of perspectives, thirteen experts – lawyers, tax directors, representatives of the OECD and of tax administrations, and academics – discuss the updates and the issues that may arise regarding their interpretation and application.

Staatshaftung für judikatives Unrecht: Eine Untersuchung zum deutschen Recht, zum Europa- und Völkerrecht

(Mohr Siebeck, 2011)

Marten Breuer

Published in German. State Liability for Judicial Wrongs: A Study of German, European and International Law.

The need for a dogmatic explanatory model is not restricted to European law but concerns national (constitutional) law and public international law in equal measure.

Recueil des cours, Tome 344/ Collected Courses, Volume 344

(Brill, September 2011)

Academie de Droit International de la Haye/ Hague Academy of International Law

The 1969 Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties — 40 Years after, by Mark E. Villiger.

The 1969 Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, regulating treaties between States, lies at the heart of international law. This course analyses how the Convention has been applied by States and tribunals in the past 40 years. Particular issues which are examined concern reservations to treaties, interpretation, jus cogens, breach of treaty, the procedural rules under the Convention – and of course the Convention’s relationship to customary international law.

The Public International Law Regime Governing International Investment, by José E. Alvarez.

This course considers the ramifications of the legal regime that governs transborder capital flows. This regime consists principally of a network of some 3,000 investment treaties, as well as a growing body of arbitral decisions. Professor Alvarez contends that the contemporary international investment regime should no longer be described as a

species of territorial “empire” imposed by rich capital exporters on capital importers. He examines the evolution of investment treaties and investor-State jurisprudence constante and identifies the connections between these and general trends within public international law, including the increased resort to treaties (“treatification”), growing risks to the law’s consistency (“fragmentation”), and the proliferation of forms of international adjudication (“judicialization”). Professor Alvarez also considers whether the regime’s efforts to “balance” the needs of non-State investors and sovereigns ought to be characterized as “global administrative law”, as a form of “constitutionalization”, or as an increasingly human-rights-centred enterprise.

Environmental Taxation and Climate Change

Achieving Environmental Sustainability through Fiscal Policy

(Edward Elgar, September 2011)

Lawrence Kreiser, JulsuchadaSirisom, Hope Ashiabor, Janet E Milne

‘The level of public and political debate on carbon taxes is low. Politicians fear the impact of a carbon tax on businesses and low income groups, as well as on their popularity among voters. This valuable book studies carbon taxes from many angles with ample attention paid to practical examples and shows that a smartly designed carbon tax is an indispensable instrument in the transition to a less carbon dependent economy.’   – Jonathan Verschuuren, The University of Sydney, Australia and Tilburg University, The Netherlands

This well-documented book comprises a stellar cast of European and American authors delivering an overview of cutting edge issues in the areas of trade and competition law, arising in the EU and beyond.  Written from an international perspective, hotly debated topics include: challenges in international monetary law; the EU and free trade; treaty interpretation; WTO dispute settlement; the domestic law effect of the WTO in the EU and public and private enforcement of competition law, amongst many others. Set out to become a key work of reference for many legal practitioners, policy makers and academics alike across the globe, Trade and Competition Law in the EU and Beyond uniquely tackles the two very different, yet related, topics of trade and competition law.

European Emissions Trading in Practice

An Economic Analysis

(Edward Elgar, September 2011)

Stefano Clo

This unique and up-to-date book analyses the functioning of the European Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) and assesses the extent to which relevant legislation has affected its capacity to promote cost-effective reduction of European carbon emissions.  The author investigates whether inefficiency has been caused by both the ETS cap setting procedure and by the ETS relevant allocation rule, as defined by Directive 2003/87/EC. He then considers whether the new Directive 2009/29/EC, which reforms the ETS institutional design, is likely to improve the scheme’s effectiveness by reducing the risk of carbon leakage – which could potentially be a consequence of implementing a unilateral policy across the asymmetric political landscape of Europe.

Law Applicable to Copyright

A Comparison of the ALI and CLIP Proposals

(Edward Elgar, September 2011)

Rita Matulionyte

This book discusses the problems of applicable law in international copyright infringement cases and examines the solutions proposed to them in the recent projects by the American Law Institute (ALI) and the European Max Planck Group for Conflict of Laws and Intellectual Property (CLIP).  In particular, the book analyses how the territoriality principle and the lex loci protectionis rule are applied in traditional, broadcasting and online cases in selected European and US jurisdictions. It then evaluates whether the rules on ubiquitous infringement, de minimis, initial ownership and party autonomy, as proposed by ALI and CLIP, address the identified problems.

Global Governance and the Role of the EU

Assessing the Future Balance of Power

(Edward Elgar, September 2011)

Edited by Carlo Secchi and Antonio Villafranca

Two years after the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, economic growth has resurfaced across the world, but with significant variation. This timely book illustrates that although mature economies (the EU in particular) are still confronting sluggish economic performance, emerging markets seem to have fully recovered. It explores the reform of global economic governance after the crisis and, in this context, addresses the role of the EU and its economic prospects for the coming decade.  The expert contributors provide analyses, insights and policy recommendations that match short-term interventions with long-term policies to encourage sustainable, balanced growth within the framework of reformed global economic governance. Focusing on the EU in particular, they indicate and prescribe tools and mechanisms with which to enhance growth potentials in Europe and the Eurozone. The ‘Europe 2020’ objectives are evaluated, including global burden-sharing and trade-related aspects of climate change targets, and US–China relations and the prospects of transatlantic partnership are also explored.

More Common Ground for International Competition Law?

(Edward Elgar, September 2011)

Edited by Josef Drexl, Warren S Grimes, Clifford A Jones, Rudolph J R Peritz, and Edward T Swaine

In recent years, an impressive proliferation of competition laws has been seen around the world. Whilst this development may lead to greater diversity of approaches, economic arguments may promote convergence. The contributions to this book look at a number of the most topical issues by asking whether the competition world is turning more towards convergence or diversity. These issues include, among others, the changing role of economics in times of economic crises and political change, the introduction of criminal sanctions, resale-price maintenance, unilateral conduct and the application of competition law to intellectual property and state-owned enterprises.

Research Handbook on European State Aid Law

(Edward Elgar, September 2011)

Edited by Erika Szyszczak

This timely new Handbook reflects on current issues that confront State aid law and policy in the EU.  State aid was a neglected area of competition law until attempts to modernise it became central to the Lisbon process 2000 where the aim was to encourage ‘intelligent’ State aid by reducing aid to specific sectors and by making better use of aid for horizontal projects central to EU integration concerns. This policy framework has underpinned the new approach to State aid policy in the EU in recent years and informs many of the chapters in this book. Contributions from leading academics, regulators and practising lawyers, discuss topics devoted to modernisation, problems faced by recent enlargements of the EU, the role of State aid in the fiscal crisis and recession, the role of the private market investor test, regional aid, environmental aid and the review of the Altmark ruling. Perspectives on State aid law and policy from the disciplines of economics and political science are also explored in detail.

The Many Concepts of Social Justice in European Private Law

(Edward Elgar, September 2011)

Edited by Hans-W Micklitz

This insightful book, with contributions from leading international scholars, examines the European model of social justice in private law that has developed over the 20th century.  The first set of articles is devoted to the relationship between corrective, commutative, procedural and social justice, more particularly the role and function of commutative justice in contrast to social justice. The second section brings together scholars who discuss the relationship between constitutional order, the values enshrined in the constitutional order and the impact of constitutional values on private law relations. The third section focuses on the impact of socio-economic developments within the EU and within selected Member States on the proprietary order of the EU, on the role and function of the emerging welfare state and the judiciary, as well as on nation state specific patterns of social justice. The final section tests the hypothesis to what extent patterns of social justice are context related and differ in-between labour, consumer and competition law.

Copyright in the Information Society

(Edward Elgar, September 2011)

Edited by Brigitte Lindner and Ted Shapiro

Celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Directive 2001/29/EC on copyright in the information society, this book sheds new light on an important European legal instrument at a crucial stage – not only in the life of the Directive, but indeed for copyright itself. With a foreword by the ‘architect’ of the Directive, Dr JörgReinbothe, the book contains two further stage-setting parts, first on the WIPO Treaties which formed the basis for the Copyright in the Information Society Directive, and then on the Directive itself. The challenges created for regional and national legislators are also explored and identified, as are the complex compromises and varying levels of discretion left to these lawmakers as they performed their legislative tasks. The local nuances and particularities of the implementation of the Directive in each Member State are examined in detail via 27 diverse and compelling narratives.

Intellectual Property and Climate Change

Inventing Clean Technologies

(Edward Elgar, September 2011)

Matthew Rimmer

In the wake of the international summits in Copenhagen and Cancún, there is an urgent need to consider the role of intellectual property law in encouraging research, development, and diffusion of clean technologies to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change. This book charts the patent landscapes and legal conflicts emerging in a range of fields of innovation – including renewable forms of energy, such as solar power, wind power, and geothermal energy; as well as biofuels, green chemistry, green vehicles, energy efficiency, and smart grids.  As well as reviewing key international treaties, this book provides a detailed analysis of current trends in patent policy and administration in key nation states, and offers clear recommendations for law reform. It considers such options as technology transfer, compulsory licensing, public sector licensing, and patent pools; and analyses the development of Climate Innovation Centres, the Eco-Patent Commons, and environmental prizes, such as the L-Prize, the H-Prize, and the X-Prizes.

Exploring  Social Rights

Between Theory and Practice

(Hart, September 2011)

Edited by Daphne Barak-Erez and Aeyal Gross

Exploring Social Rights looks into the theoretical and practical implications of social rights. The book is organised in five parts. Part I considers theoretical aspects of social rights, and looks into their place within political and legal theory and within the human rights tradition; Part II looks at the status of social rights in international law, with reference to the challenge of globalisation and to the significance of specific regional regulation (such as the European System); Part III includes discussions of various legal systems which are of special interest in this area (Canada, South Africa, India and Israel); Part IV looks at the content of a few central social rights (such as the right to education and the right to health); and Part V discusses the relevance of social rights to distinct social groups (women and people with disabilities). The articles in the book, while using the category of social rights, also challenge the separation of rights into distinct categories and question the division of rights to ‘civil’ vs ‘social’ rights, from a perspective which considers all rights as ‘social’. This book will be of interest to anyone concerned with human rights, the legal protection of social rights and social policy.

Environmental Judicial Review

(Hart, September 2011)

Richard Moules

Judicial review of environmental decisions is an important and growing area of public law. But although the general principles of judicial review have been clearly mapped out, their application to the particular context of the environment is under-explored. This book therefore seeks to provide a detailed and critical account of environmental judicial review in both domestic and EU law. Part I explains the central principles of environmental law, such as the polluter pays principle and the precautionary principle, and shows how they influence the application of public law standards of legality. Part II considers the procedure for judicial review with particular emphasis on standing, protective costs and the availability of interim relief. Part III consists of a detailed examination of how each of the grounds for judicial review is applied in the environmental context. It highlights the increased emphasis on consultation and public participation in environmental matters, the degree of deference afforded by the courts to scientific and political judgments, and the prevalence of ‘hard-edged’ questions of law. Part IV focuses on EU law and examines direct and indirect actions before the EU courts, preliminary references and state liability. It also considers infraction proceedings brought by the EU Commission, the role of individuals and NGOs in relation to such proceedings and the interrelationships between infraction proceedings and judicial review. Finally, Part V explains the complex regime governing access to environmental information.

OLAF at the Crossroads

Action Against EU Fraud

(Hart, August 2011)

ConstantinStefanou, Simone White and Helen Xanthaki

The authors offer many insights into the regulatory, operational and institutional opportunities and challenges for OLAF, the European Commission’s Anti-Fraud Office. Since OLAF was set up in 1999, significant changes in its functional environment have taken place including in EU criminal law and especially in mutual assistance and substantive criminal law; the reconstruction of Eurojust and Europol through recent Regulations and Memoranda of Cooperation; and the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty.The authors advance the view that OLAF’s current legal framework must address these issues adequately.The approach they take is multi-disciplinary.  OLAF is examined here through the prisms of EU politics and national, European and (to some extent) comparative law, focusing not only on the identification of current problems in regulation and procedure but also on its positioning within the context of European integration. Operational issues are then extensively discussed, making this a book for practitioners as well as policy makers and academics.The book addresses the theoretical and practical aspects of anti-fraud actions within both criminal and civil aspects of public law. Although OLAF works within an incomplete EU legal framework and with varying cooperation by national authorities, its staff have devised mechanisms that address some of these issues. Nevertheless, rules covering procedural and operational issues will need to be safeguarded within future legislation.

Human Dignity in Bioethics and Law

(Hart, September 2011)

Charles Foster

Dignity is often denounced as hopelessly amorphous or incurably theological: as feel-good philosophical window-dressing, or as the name given to whatever principles give you the answer that you think is right. This is wrong, says Charles Foster: dignity is not only an essential principle in bioethics and law; it is really the only principle. In this ambitious, paradigm-shattering but highly readable book, he argues that dignity is the only sustainable Theory of Everything in bioethics. For most problems in contemporary bioethics, existing principles such as autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence, justice and professional probity can do a reasonably workmanlike job if they are all allowed to contribute appropriately. But these are second order principles, each of which traces its origins back to dignity. And when one gets to the frontiers of bioethics (such as human enhancement), dignity is the only conceivable language with which to describe and analyse the strange conceptual creatures found there. Drawing on clinical, anthropological, philosophical and legal insights, Foster provides a new lexicon and grammar of that language which is essential reading for anyone wanting to travel in the outlandish territories of bioethics, and strongly recommended for anyone wanting to travel comfortably anywhere in bioethics or medical law.

Procedural Justice?

Victim Participation in International Criminal Proceedings

(Hart, September 2011)

Brianne McGonigieLeyh

In early 2006, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights called for more detailed research into the relevant international standards and national and international practices concerning the role of victims in criminal proceedings. In response to this call and the increased attention paid to victims at international criminal institutions, this study explores the role of victims in international criminal proceedings.  As such, the aim of this study is threefold: (i) to describe, explain and clarify the procedural role afforded to victims in international criminal proceedings; (ii) to evaluate whether the current approaches to victim participation in international criminal proceedings are consistent with human rights standards; and (iii) to determine the proper scope and content of victim participation in international criminal proceedings. To structure the analysis, the framework focuses on two central concepts, namely the unique characteristics of international criminal proceedings and human rights standards.  Broken up into two main parts, the first part of the study covers criminal law theories and the current role afforded to victims in domestic jurisdictions. It further examines the development of their procedural rights both domestically and internationally. The second part of the study then deals exclusively with international criminal justice institutions and the participatory rights afforded to victims therein. Using two case studies, one on the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia and the other on the International Criminal Court, the research highlights how these courts have approached the issue of victim participation. The study concludes with general recommendations.

Chinese Intellectual Property and Technology Laws

(Edward Elgar, September 2011)

Edited by RohanKariyawasam and Helen Hui

Written by some of China’s leading academic experts and with a foreword by the former Chief Justice of the IP Tribunal of China’s Supreme People’s Court, this book combines for the very first time a review of both Chinese intellectual property and technology laws in a single volume in English.  The book initially focuses on recent amendments to the laws of copyright, trademarks, patents, before moving on to discuss unfair competition and trade secrets, and the protection of intellectual property over electronic networks. Other chapters cover the regulation of digital networks and telecommunications; IT and E-commerce; the new antimonopoly law and competition; and China’s position on the TRIPS agreement. Of special note is a chapter written by in-house Counsel and the Chairman of the Quality Brands Protection Committee (a coalition of well known multinational brands) reviewing both brand protection and practical enforcement of intellectual property in China.

Anticipatory Action in Self-Defence: Essence and Limits under International Law

(Springer, 2011)

Kinga Tibori Szabó

The legality of preemptive strikes is one of the most controversial questions of contemporary international law. This book examines whether anticipatory action in self-defence is part of customary international law and, if so, under what conditions. The pre-Charter concept of anticipatory action is demarcated and then assessed against post-Charter state practice. Several instances of self-defence – both anticipatory and remedial – are examined to elucidate the rules governing the temporal dimension of the right. The Six-Day War (1967), the Israeli bombing of an Iraqi reactor (1981), the US invasion of Iraq (2003) and other instances of state practice are given thorough attention.

The Europeanisation of International Family Law

(Springer, 2011)

N. A. Baarsma

International family law is an area that is predominantly regulated by national law. Currently the national choice of law rules of the EU Member States are more and more displaced by common European rules, which will entail considerable changes. In this book, the nature and reasons of the changes brought about by the transition from a national to a supranational choice of law approach are discussed in one particular field of international family law: the termination by dissolution of marriages and marriage-like registered partnerships. The current Dutch and the proposed European choice of law rules on divorce are examined and compared.

Plant Genetic Resources and Food Security: Stakeholder Perspectives on the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture

(Taylor and Francis, 2011)

Edited by Christine Frison, Francisco Lopez, Jose Esquinas-Alcazar

The International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA) is a pivotal piece of recent legislation, providing a route map for the use of such resources for sustainable agriculture and food security. This book explains clearly the different interests and views at stake between all players in the global food chain. It touches upon many issues such as international food governance and policy, economic aspects of food and seed trade, conservation and sustainable use of food and agricultural biodiversity, hunger alleviation, ecological concerns, consumers’ protection, fairness and equity between nations and generations, plant breeding techniques and socio-economic benefits related to food local economies. The book shows that despite the conflicting interests at stake, players managed to come to an agreement on food and agriculture for the sake of food security and hunger alleviation in the world. Published with the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations and with Bioversity International.

Confronting Biopiracy: Challenges, Cases and International Debates

(Taylor and Francis, 2011)

By Darren Robinson

‘Biopiracy’ refers either to the unauthorised extraction of biological resources, such as plants with medicinal properties, and associated traditional knowledge from indigenous peoples and local communities, or to the patenting of spurious ‘inventions’ based on such knowledge or resources without compensation. Biopiracy cases continue to emerge in the media and public eye, yet they remain the source of considerable disagreement, confusion, controversy and grief. The aim of this book is to provide the most detailed, coherent analysis of the issue of biopiracy to date.  The book synthesises the rise of the issue and increasing use of the term by activists and negotiators to form a critical understanding of the themes, implications and politics of biopiracy. Taking a case-study based approach the author sequentially documents events that have occurred in biopiracy and bioprospecting controversies. Options and solutions are suggested which are relevant for local communities, national governments, international negotiators, NGO and interest groups, researchers and industry.

Crops and Carbon: Paying Farmers to Combat Climate Change

(Taylor and Francis, 2011)

By Mike Robbins

Rich countries are paying poor countries to fight climate change on their behalf – and one way they are doing it is through carbon sinks. These are reservoirs of organic carbon tied up in plants and in the earth, rather than being in the atmosphere as greenhouse gases. This book considers the scientific, economic and ethical basis for this type of mitigation. Previous attention has been focused mainly on reducing emissions from deforestation and land degradation (REDD), but Crops and Carbon is one of the first attempts to examine the potential for carbon sinks in agriculture in crop plants and the soil. In assessing this, the author examines exactly how north-south climate mitigation trading works, or does not, and what the pitfalls are. It highlights the complex relationship between agriculture, particularly different forms of farming systems, and the mitigation of climate change. The arguments are backed up by original research with farmers in Brazil to demonstrate the challenges and prospects which these proposals offer in terms of payments for environmental services from agriculture through carbon trading.

Climate Adaptation and Flood Risk in Coastal Cities

(Taylor and Francis, 2011)

By Jeroen Aerts, Wouter Botzen, Malcolm Bowman, Philip Ward and Piet Dircke

This book presents climate adaptation and flood risk problems and solutions in coastal cities, including an independent investigation of adaptation paths and problems in Rotterdam, New York and Jakarta. The comparison draws out lessons that each city can learn from the others. While the main focus is on coastal flooding, cities are also affected by climate change in other ways, including impacts that occur away from the coast. The New York City Water Supply System, for example, stretches as far as 120 miles upstate, and the New York City Department of Environmental Protection has undertaken extensive climate assessment not only for its coastal facilities, but also for its upstate facilities, which will be affected by rising temperatures, droughts, inland flooding and water quality changes.
