Rules and Institutions of International Humanitarian Law Put to the Test of Recent Armed Conflicts

(Brill, September 2011)

Edited by Michael J Matheson and Djamchid Momtaz

This volume is the product of the Centre for Studies and Research of the Hague Academy of International Law for 2007. A total of 23 young academics and practitioners from 16 countries participated in the Centre’s summer session, and all contributed to a very valuable scholarly exploration and exchange of views on a vital topic. The volume consists of the introductory reports of the two Directors of Studies (Professor D. Momtaz of the University of Teheran and Professor M.J. Matheson of George Washington Law School), together with contributions by 13 of the Centre participants that were deemed to be particularly worthy of publication, an extensive bibliography and a general index. The topic for 2007 was “Rules and Institutions of International Humanitarian Law Put to the Test of Recent Armed Conflicts”. It reflects the fact that international humanitarian law has gone through a period of considerable expansion and development in the past two decades, including the conclusion of several new international humanitarian law conventions and codes of offences, the creation of a number of criminal tribunals to prosecute international humanitarian law violations, and the effort by the ICRC to produce a comprehensive elaboration of customary law in the field. But the topic also reflects the fact that this body of law has been seriously tested by the armed conflicts of recent years, which have often been vast in scope, long in duration and severe in their human consequences. These conflicts have challenged both the norms themselves and the new institutions that have been created to enforce them.

International Criminal law

Collection of International and Regional Instruments

(Brill, September 2011)

Edited by Christine Van den Wyngaert and Steven Dewulf

International Criminal Law has become a mainstream subject. While it was hardly taught at law faculties at the time of the first edition of this book (1996), it is now highly featured in academic curricula. Practitioners, academics and political decision makers are increasingly confronted with this discipline.

Within the framework of the United Nations and the European Union, but also in other regional bodies, there has been a dramatic increase in the conventions on various aspects of international criminal law. In fact much of the day-to-day work of lawyers around the globe is about the … read moresubject. International criminal law is gradually supple-menting human rights as the standard to assess governments and individuals. In the process, it has become part of the vocabulary of the general public. Many recent crisis situations have contributed to this phenomenon, from 11/9 and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to the Arab spring and SC Resolution 1973 (2011) giving effect to R2P in Libya.

International criminal courts, which until some time ago, were still somewhat exotic, are now part of the mainstream international judicial establishment. The UN ad hoc tribunals together with the mixed tribunals and special courts have substantially con-tributed to the development of international criminal jurisprudence. Meanwhile the International Criminal Court is in full operation, delivering its first landmark decisions and dealing with an increasing number of situations and cases. In the European Union, the Lisbon Treaty is representing an important step towards the growing integration in the field of criminal law and procedure. A comparable trend is incipient in many other regions and organisations. This collection is meant to guide students and practitioners through the labyrinth of international criminal law instruments. It comprises international (universal) and Euro-pean conventions, while also including other regional instruments (AU/OAU, ASEAN, the Commonwealth, OAS and SAARC).

Recueil des Cours Tome 349/ Collected Courses Volume 349

(Brill, September 2011)

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

Radiating Impact of WTO on Its Members’ Legal System: The Chinese Perspective, by Guiguo Wang, Professor at the City University of Hong Kong.  The World Trade Organization (“WTO”) resulted from globalization, through which national law provisions are internationalized and international norms are domesticated. The WTO does not permit reservation by its members who are obliged to ensure the compliance of their laws, policies and other measures. Once a member is found to have violated its obligations, it must rectify the non-compliance measures to avoid retaliation. The quasi-automatic approval procedure of the WTO Dispute Settlement Body has proved to be effective in ensuring the compliance by members and consistency of interpretation of the WTO Agreement. As the multilateral trade institution covers a wide range of sectors from trade in goods and services, and intellectual property to investment and the measures of the members include laws and regulations, administrative decisions and judicial rulings, the impacts of the WTO on the members’ legal systems are hugely profound and long lasting. In some cases, for the purpose of joining the WTO, the legal systems of the members concerned have been through significant changes.

Case Law in Roman, Anglosaxon and Continental Law

(Brill, September 2011)

Maria Jose Falcon y Tella

Case law is a widely studied field, posing a series of questions. The first issue relates to the nature of case law itself, as the term cannot be given a single meaning. There is no one definition of case law, but rather a plurality of meanings depending on the historical period and legal system in question.

After an analysis of Roman iurisprudentia and Anglo-Saxon case law, this work considers the Spanish legal system, as an example of a Continental jurisdiction, and distinguishes between the case laws of the Supreme and Constitutional Courts, the European courts, and the Superior Courts of Justice of the Autonomous Communities. The book analyses these issues, among many others, in a clear and in-depth manner, from an historical and comparative approach of great interest and academic value.

Kosovo: A Precedent?

The Declaration of Independence, the Advisory Opinion and Implications for Statehood, Self-Determination and Minority Rights

(Brill, September 2011)

Edited by James Summers

Kosovo’s declaration of independence on 28 February 2008 has had a profound and polarising impact on international relations. While over a third of the world’s countries have recognised Kosovo, others have been concerned that it sets a precedent for secessionist minorities. Indeed, Kosovo appears to have been used as a precedent in the Russia-Georgia conflict over South Ossetia. The book brings together contributions from leading academics on the legal aspects of Kosovo and, in particular, the International Court of Justice’s Advisory Opinion of 2010. The result is an extensive examination from a variety of experts on Kosovo and its impact on international law.

The Negotiations for a New Agreement on Agriculture

(Brill, September 2011)

Joseph A McMahon

The Negotiations for a New Agreement on Agriculture presents a history of the negotiations towards a fair and market-oriented international agricultural trading system. After an introductory chapter outlining the provisions of the Agreement on Agriculture, the book considers the analysis and information exchange process launched by the 1996 Singapore Declaration and the failed 1999 Seattle Ministerial. The mandated Article 20 negotiations are discussed before consideration is given to the 2001 Doha Declaration. The negotiations are considered in the context of the Cancun and, Hong Kong Ministerials and the July 2008 mini-ministerial before a discussion of the latest version of the Modalities for the Agreement issued in December 2008. The work ends with a look back over the negotiations and consideration of the development dimension of the Doha Round.

The Signature of Evil

(Intersentia, September 2011)

Steven Dewulf

In The Signature of Evil, the notion of torture in international law is explored, with the intention of discovering the precise meaning of this most infamous and yet still very prevalent practice. By devouring a wealth of international legal sources, and combining this with personal field research and a look at the historical, philosophical, cultural, political and social background of torture’s use and abolition, this book’s first ambition is to define the term. This leads to an extensive and impressive overview, in which torture’s constituent elements are carefully identified, thoroughly and meticulously scrutinised, and critically evaluated. On the basis of this synthesis and analysis, in which all possible uncertainties, problems and evolutions are highlighted and discussed, a redefinition is proposed, which does not shy away from setting foot on new terrain and trying what might be revolutionary roads. Some thought provoking ideas are suggested, and at times controversial choices are made, but all this is done in order to attain one all-important goal: enhancing torture’s absolute and non-derogable prohibition, and strengthening the international legal framework against unlawful abuse.

Law and Economics in the RIA World

Improving the use of economic analysis in public policy and legislation

(Intersentia, September 2011)

Andrea Renda

The use of economics in public policy, in the form of ex ante Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA), is strongly advocated by international organizations such as the OECD and the World Bank. In the US and the EU, hundreds of RIAs are produced every year to justify public intervention in the form of regulation. But reality shows that in many other countries the adoption and implementation of this tool has been patchy at best. At the same time, the economics used in RIA is heavily challenged by scholarly developments such as ehavioural economics, neuroeconomics and the study of social norms, and was also unable to predict and cure the financial crisis that hit the global economy in 2007. The book claims that RIA should incorporate recent developments in the law and economics literature and provides an analysis of the potential contribution of positive, normative and functional schools of law and economics to the practice of RIA. The book contains thematic applications to policy fields such as environmental protection, energy efficiency, financial markets, antitrust, cyberspace and telecommunications.

The Law and Economics of Organ Procurement

(Intersentia, September 2011)

Firat Bilgel

Organ procurement systems are similar to in-kind economies characterized by severe restrictions and transaction costs in the absence of money because currently they are based on altruism and gift-giving. A sale prohibition imposed by the government, amplified by an increasing demand for transplants leads to an ever-growing shortage of human organs throughout the world. The Law and Economics of Organ Procurement explores the legal and economic dimensions of various deceased and living organ procurement policies and investigates the effectiveness of current legislations related to deceased and living organ donations in the United States, Europe and other developed countries.  The book further examines the legal instruments and the international standards to combat trafficking of humans for the purposes of organ removal and discusses their applications with a comparative analysis that later serves to develop a model of law enforcement that addresses the embodiment of specific legislation and the implementation of an optimal deterrence policy. The book fuels the ongoing debate among medical doctors, economists, legal scholars, legislators and bioethicists about the regulatory, legislative and institutional aspects of liberalization in the exchange of transplantable human organs and appeals to readers of diverse backgrounds interested in the future of organ donation and procurement.

European Energy Law Report VIII

(Intersentia, September 2011)

Edited by Martha M Roggenkamp and Ulf Hammer

The European Energy Law Report VIII presents an overview of the most important legal developments in the field of EU and national energy and climate change law as discussed at the 2010 European Energy Law Seminar.  The first part discusses new developments following the energy liberalisation process and the Third Energy Package. It includes an overview of the recent EU case law on competition in the energy sector. This is followed by a discussion about the cooperation of TSOs and, in particularly, the role of ENTSO as well as an analysis of the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER) and its role in enhancing the cooperation of national energy regulators. Finally, it discusses Regulation 994/2010 as a measure to improve the EU’s security of gas supply.  The second part deals with the promotion of renewable energy sources in a liberalised market. It examines Directive 2009/28/EC as Europe‘s new tool to reach its ambitious goals of 20% renewables in 2020. Thereafter, it discusses Denmark’s new law providing new incentives for the promotion of onshore wind energy.  The third part concentrates on investments in the energy sector and climate change. It begins with an analysis of the EU rules concerning energy and investment after the Lisbon Treaty. Thereafter the focus turns to the Yukos case and international arbitration by foreign energy investors in Russia. Finally, it examines direct foreign investment and its role for combating climate change.

Documents on the Law of UN Peace Operations

(Oxford University Press, September 2011)

Bruce Oswald, Helen Durham, and Adrian Bates

Features all of the key documents applicable to UN peace operations accompanied by an explanatory commentary and suggestions for further research. Provides an introduction which places the law and its application to UN peace operations into context in a clear and accessible manner.Since 1948 the UN has been involved in over 60 peacekeeping operations. However in the current environment of complex and rapidly changing threats to peace, there has been a dramatic increase in the use of UN peacekeepers to deal with situations of instability. This situation has resulted in a range of new and pressing challenges to the legal framework applicable during such collective international action.

Formalism and the Sources of International Law: A Theory of the Ascertainment of Legal Rules

(Oxford University Press, 15 September 2011)

Jean d’Aspremont

This book revisits the theory of the sources of international law from the perspective of formalism. It critically analyzes the virtues of formalism, construed as a theory of law ascertainment, as a means of distinguishing between law and non-law. The theory of formalism is re-evaluated against the backdrop of the growing acceptance by international legal theorists of the blurring of the lines between law and non-law. At the same time, the book acknowledges that much international normative activity nowadays takes place outside the ambit of traditional international law and that only a limited part of the exercise of public authority at the international level results in the creation of international legal rules.

Torture in International Criminal Law: Recent Case Law

(International Courts Association, 2011)

Tofan

Torture cannot be defined by a list of prohibited practices. Human rights treaties define it in a number of different ways, reflecting the different contexts in which they were drafted and the purposes of each particular treaty. It is impossible to draw a clear dividing line between ‘torture’ and other ‘cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment.’ Both torture and ill treatment are prohibited in all circumstances by international law. This book examines case law on torture as a main issue on trial. Regulations and jurisprudence are discussed with regard to the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, the Special Court for Sierra Leone, and the International Criminal Court.

Human Rights Protection in the European Legal Order: The Interaction Between the European and the National Courts

(Intersentia, September 2011)

Piet Van Nuffel, Catherine van den Heyning and Patricia Popelier

Ensuring the protection of human rights in Europe has become a highly complex exercise. Where courts are faced with a human rights claim, they not only have to examine the validity of that claim, but they also need to have a clear understanding of the human rights catalogue that is to be applied (i.e. human rights as guaranteed by the national constitution, human rights as protected under EU law, based or not on the Charter, and human rights as identified in the European Convention of Human Rights). This book zooms in on various aspects of the interaction between courts in the complex European system of human rights protection. This book studies both the co-existence between the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice, and the impact of this dual mechanism of European human rights protection on the protection offered within specific EU Member States.

Constitutional Life and Europe’s Area of Freedom, Security and Justice

(Ashgate Publications, September 2011)

Alun Howard Gibbs

The challenge of thinking about the place of constitutionalism beyond the conventional categories of the nation state has become a principal concern for legal and political scholars. This book casts this issue in a different light by exploring the implications for the constitutionalism of legal integration in the European Union’s ‘area of freedom, security and justice’. In doing so it makes a novel contribution to an understanding of the European Union as a political community beyond the state, but in addition explores how this entails thinking differently about what is essential concerning constitutionalism. The book argues that instead of seeking to theorise constitutional foundations we actually begin to encounter the constitutional life implied by political and legal practices in the European Union and as exemplified here by ‘the area of freedom, security and justice’.

Islamic Law in Europe?

(Ashgate Publication, September 2011)

Andrea Büchler

Cultural and religious identity and family law are inter-related in a number of ways and raise various complex issues. European legal systems have taken various approaches to meeting these challenges. This book examines this complexity and indicates areas in which conflicts may arise by analysing examples from legislation and court decisions in Germany, Switzerland, France, England and Spain. It includes questions of private international law, comments on the various degrees of consideration accorded to cultural identity within substantive family law, and remarks on models of legal pluralism and the dangers that go along with them. It concludes with an evaluation of approaches which are process-based rather than institution-based.

Lesley Jane Smith and Ingo Baumann (eds.)

Recent significant developments in the European space sector have had an impact on business and the growth of national and European commercial space law. This book analyses and assesses the legal issues and key factors influencing the space sector in Europe. It is an up-to-date guide to the regulatory background of space projects and examines the typical legal problems which need to be solved by practitioners in the field. Taking into account public and commercial international law and practice, this book examines substantive issues of law specific to launchers, satellite manufacturers and space service providers with contributions from leading experts and practitioners in the field of European space law and policy.

Agrobiodiversity and the Law

(Earthscan Publications, September 2011)

Juliana Santili

A wide range of crop genetic resources is vital for future food security. Loss of agricultural biodiversity increases the risk of relying on a limited number of staple food crops. However, many laws, such as seed laws, plant varieties´ protection and access and benefit-sharing laws, have direct impacts on agrobiodiversity, and their effects have been severely underestimated by policy makers. This is of concern not only to lawyers, but also to agronomists, biologists and social scientists, who need clear guidance as to the relevance of the law to their work.
