The ICJ and the Evolution of International Law: The Enduring Impact of the Corfu Channel Case

(Routledge, 2011)

Edited by Karine Bannelier, Théodore Christakis, Sarah Heathcote

In 1949 the International Court of Justice (ICJ) handed down its first judgment in the Corfu Channel Case. In diffusing an early Cold War dispute, the Court articulated a set of legal principles which continue to shape our appreciation of the international legal order. Many of the issues dealt with by the Court in 1949 remain central questions of international law, including due diligence, forcible intervention and self-help, maritime operations, navigation in international straits and the concept of elementary considerations of humanity. The Court’s decision has been cited on numerous occasions in subsequent international litigation. Indeed, the relevance of this judgment goes far beyond the subject matter dealt with by the Court in 1949, extending to pressing problems such as trans-boundary pollution, terrorism and piracy. In short, it was and remains a thoroughly modern decision — a landmark for international law; and one which today still warrants examination sixty years later. Taking a critical approach, this book examines the decision’s influence on international law generally and on some fields of international law like the law of the sea and the law of international responsibility specifically. The book collects the commentary of a distinguished set of international law scholars, including five well-known international judges. The contributors consider not only the history of the Corfu Channel Judgment and its contribution to the development of international law, but also its resonance in many contemporary issues in the field of international law.

Accounting for Hunger:

The Right to Food in the Era of Globalisation

(Hart Publishing, 2011)

Edited by Olivier De Schutter and Kaitlin Y Cordes

The challenge of global hunger is now high on the agenda of governments and international policy-makers. This new work contributes to addressing that challenge, by looking at the obstacles which stand in the way of implementing a right to food in the era of globalisation. The book describes the current situation of global hunger; it considers how it relates both to the development of food systems and to the merger of the food and energy markets; and it explains how the right to food contributes to identifying solutions at the domestic and international levels. The right to food, it argues, can only be realised if governance improves at the domestic level, and if the international environment enables governments to adopt appropriate policies, for which they require a certain policy space. The essays in this book demonstrate that the current regimes of trade, investment and food aid, as well as the development of biofuels production – all of which contribute to define the international context in which states implement such reforms – should be reshaped if national efforts are to be successful. The implication is that extraterritorial human rights obligations of states (their obligations to respect the right to food beyond their national territories, for instance in their food aid, investment or trade policies), as well as the strengthening of global governance of food security (as is currently being attempted with the reform of the Committee on World Food Security in Rome), have a key role to fulfill: domestic reforms will not achieve sustainable results unless the international environment is more enabling of the efforts of governments acting individually. In this reform process, accountability both at the domestic and international level is essential if sustainable progress is to be achieved in combating global hunger.

Comparative Ocean Governance

Place-Based Protections in an Era of Climate Change

(Edward Elgar, Nov. 2011)

Robin K. Craig

Comparative Ocean Governance examines how the drive to improve governance of the oceans through place-based management – such as marine protected areas, ecosystem-based management, and ocean zoning – can be adapted to a world already experiencing the impacts of climate change. The author discusses the value of and the threats facing the world’s oceans, the international law regimes that support place-based management, and the general promotion of place-based management to improve prior ocean governance. She concludes by suggesting three approaches to incorporating climate change adaptation into place-based marine governance, using current examples from around the world.

Environmental Governance And Sustainability

(Edward Elgar, Feb 2012)

Paul Martin , Li Zhiping , Qin Tianbao , Anel Du Plessis , Yves Le Bouthillier

This timely volume provides fascinating insights into emerging developments in the field of legal governance of the environment at a time when environmental governance is increasingly concerned with far more than legal doctrine.  The expert contributors are concerned with the totality of arrangements through which power and resources are deployed to protect and restore natural resources, and how the costs and benefits of this are allocated. They explore key issues such as: how the community exercises its democratic rights; how government responds to the needs of current and future generations and balances the interests of the powerful with the powerless; the freedoms and responsibilities of commerce and the holders of property; and the ways in which laws and policies are informed by science and other perspectives. The various ways in which legal scholarship is pivotal to good governance are thus highlighted, as is the extent of innovation being generated by current ecological, economic and social challenges.

Conservation, Biodiversity And International Law

(Edward Elgar, Dec. 2011)

Alexander Gillespie

This important and timely book provides a rigorous overview of the defining issues presently facing conservation at international level. The author provides detailed coverage of topics ranging from the classification of species right through to access and benefit sharing, drawing on his personal experience at intergovernmental level. Each question is examined through the prism of dozens of treaties and hundreds of decisions and resolutions of the key multilateral regimes, and the law in each area is supplemented by the necessary considerations of science politics and philosophy – providing much-needed context for the reader.

Governing Disasters: The Challenges of Emergency Risk Regulation

(Edward Elgar, October 2011)

Alberto Alemanno

This is the first volume that addresses the complexities of the volcanic ash cloud that overshadowed Europe in April 2011, but has subsequently struck again in Australia, Chile and Europe. It does so from a multidisciplinary perspective, drawing upon research from economics, law, sociology and other fields, as well as volcanology and leading expertise in jet engineering. Whilst our knowledge base is wide-ranging, there is a common focus on the practical lessons of the ash cloud crisis both for subsequent eruptions and for emergency risk regulation more generally. Among many other insights Governing Disasters explains why it was that industry and regulators were largely unprepared for a phenomenon about which we were not scientifically ignorant. It concludes that the toolbox of risk regulation should not be expected to provide ready-made solutions but applied flexibly, creatively and with some humility.

Research Handbook On The Wto Agriculture Agreement:

New and Emerging Issues in International Agricultural Trade Law

(Edward Elgar, Jan. 2012)

Jospeh McMahon , Melaku Desta

Agriculture has been the unruly horse of the GATT/WTO system for a long time and efforts to halter it are still ongoing. This Research Handbook focuses on aspects of agricultural production and trade policy that are recognized for their importance but are often kept out of the limelight, such as the implication of national and international agricultural production and trade policies on national food security, global climate change, and biotechnology. It provides a summary of the state of the WTO agriculture negotiations as well as the relevant jurisprudence, but also, and uniquely, it focuses on the new and emerging issues of agricultural trade law and policy that are rarely addressed in the existing literature.

Responding To Climate Change:

Global Experiences and the Korean Perspective

(Edward Elgar, Feb. 2012)

Edited by Chin Hee Hahn, Sang-Hyop Lee, and Kyoung-Soo Yoon

This topical book explores the global experiences of responding to climate change, with perspectives from Australia, China, the European Union, Japan, the Republic of Korea, the United States, as well as the International Energy Agency. The authors, internationally recognized specialists in the field, discuss the obstacles faced by policymakers, as well as exploring policies and recommendations for achieving goals set in responding to climate change. The work also uses the case of Korea in the initial stage of its policymaking, as an example for developing countries not bound by the provisions of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol on climate change. This important book assesses current national policies and future options for the global response to climate change.

Taking Liberties
The War on Terror and the Erosion of American Democracy

(Oxford Univ. Press, Nov. 2011)
Susan N. Herman

Since 9/11, the U.S. government has acted in a variety of ways–some obvious, some nearly invisible–to increase its surveillance and detention power over American citizens and residents. While most of us have made our peace with the various new restrictions on our civil liberties after 9/11, we have done it without really understanding what those restrictions are or the extent of their reach. Moreover, we tend to think that if the national security state overreaches, we shouldn’t worry–the courts will come to the rescue and rein it in. In Taking Liberties, Susan Herman explains how this came to be. Beginning in late 2001, the Bush Administration undertook a series of measures, some of which were understandable and valid given the context, to expand federal surveillance authority. Yet as she shows through a series of gripping episodes involving ordinary Americans, they overreached to the point eroding basic constitutional liberties. Herman spells out in vivid detail why

A Philosophical Investigation of Evil and its Consequences

(Oxford Univ. Press, Nov. 2011)

Matthew H. Kramer

Taking a fresh look at a central controversy in criminal law theory, The Ethics of Capital Punishment presents a rationale for the death penalty grounded in a theory of the nature of evil and the nature of defilement. Original, unsettling, and deeply controversial, it will be an essential reference point for future debates on the subject.

Indigenous Property Rights and the Jurisprudence of Empire
(Oxford Univ. Press, Nov. 2011)

Mark Hickford

Through focusing on the political history of New Zealand during its imperial settlement, this book offers a fresh assessment of the history of indigenous property rights.

Criminal Law Reform and Transitional Justice

(Ashgate, 2011)

by Lutz Oette, SOAS, University of London, UK

This book examines the nature, policy aspects and interrelationship of Sudanese criminal law and law reform in the context of an uncertain transition from conflict to post-conflict society. In so doing, it situates current developments in Sudan in the broader debate of international human rights, rule of law and transitional justice. For the first time, Sudanese, national, regional and international experts and practitioners are brought together to share experiences, combining a range of legal and policy perspectives. It also considers what broader lessons can be drawn for reform initiatives in other societies undergoing transitions.

The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade by info@cceia.org (Andrew Feinstein, Joanne J. Myers) In 2010, global military expenditure was roughly $1.6 trillion–that’s $235 for every person on earth. This has profound impacts, from the perpetuation of conflict, to the corrosion of democracy in both buying and selling countries, to massive socioeconomic costs worldwide.

Toward a More Robust Public Policy Environment in the Middle East by info@cceia.org (Jon B. Alterman, David C. Speedie) Dr. Alterman describes the principal challenges for the Arab Middle East states as “developing human capital and strengthening public policy environments.” In aspiring to these, he calls for patience and long-haul commitment, even restraint, from Western donor sources.

Ian Hurd on International Law and Security “I would disagree with those who suggest international law doesn’t really matter. If we look at what states do, they work very hard to marshal legal resources behind their foreign policy choices. They clearly care very much about being seen as following international law.”

Report from Iran Dr. Larijani, Iran’s secretary general of the High Council for Human Rights, describes Iran’s system as a “democratic structure based on Islamic rationality,” and engages in a frank, and sometimes heated discussion with the audience on nuclear weapons and human rights in Iran.

Illusions of Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism by info@cceia.org (Louise Richardson, David C. Speedie)

“It’s time that we got ourselves out of this false sense of insecurity and realize that terrorism is here to stay, it will never pose an existential threat to this country, and the biggest threat it poses to us is that we will work ourselves into overreacting to the threat that it poses us.”

George F. Kennan: An American Life by info@cceia.org (John Lewis Gaddis, Joanne J. Myers) George Kennan was one of the great men of the 20th century, says John Lewis Gaddis. And he was great in multiple dimensions: as the grand strategist of the Cold War; as a historian; and as author of one of the greatest of American diaries.

Re-Imagining a Global Ethic by info@cceia.org (Michael Ignatieff, Joel H. Rosenthal) “A global ethic makes it possible for us to agree to disagree about ultimate questions, provided we have the philosophical clarity that comes from that process of adversarial justification,” says Ignatieff in this thoughtful and challenging talk.

Philanthropic Foundations, Think Tanks, and Development: Understanding and Assessing the Think Tank Initiative by info@cceia.org (Karthik Nachiappan) Can think tanks really facilitate growth? How robust are the Think Tank Initiative’s evaluative and accountability processes? Measuring how the TTI fares will not only enable us to gauge the venture’s efficacy, but also help us to better understand the role that philanthropic foundations play.

But Will the Planet Notice?: How Smart Economics Can Save the World by info@cceia.org (Gernot Wagner, Joanne J. Myers) You recycle? You turn down plastic and paper? Good. But none of that will save the tuna or stop global warming. If you want to make the planet notice, follow the economics, says Gernot Wagner.

Ian Hurd on International Law and Security by info@cceia.org (Ian Hurd, John Tessitore) “I would disagree with those who suggest international law doesn’t really matter.

Speedie) Dr. Alterman describes the principal challenges for the Arab Middle East states as “developing human capital and strengthening public policy environments.” In aspiring to these, he calls for patience and long-haul commitment, even restraint, from Western donor sources.

Trade Policy Review: Thailand The sixth review of the trade policies and practices of Thailand takes place on 28 and 30 November 2011. The basis for the review is a report by the WTO Secretariat and a report by the Government of Thailand.

WTO to organize seminar on exchange rates and trade The Working Group on Trade, Debt and Finance will organize in Geneva a seminar at the end of the first quarter of 2012 on the economics of the relationship between exchange rates and trade – especially the impact of the one on the other, said Working Group Chair Martin Glass of Hong Kong, China. He said that the issue of existing WTO rules and currencies will not be taken up at this seminar.

Chair reports “convergence” in Ministerial preparations The Chair, Amb. Yonov Frederick Agah, reported to an informal General Council meeting on 24 November 2011 that after extensive consultations, he had detected “convergence” on possible elements for Ministers’ political guidance at the Eighth WTO Ministerial Conference. He said these elements, which he described as “work in progress”, fell under two themes: the importance of the multilateral trading system and the WTO, and trade and development.

10-year-old WTO declaration has reinforced health policy choices, Lamy tells symposium A decade-old WTO declaration has allowed the WTO and its partners to collaborate on helping governments target medical treatment for their poorer populations and understand their room for manoeuvre under intellectual property agreements, WTO Director-General Pascal Lamy said on 23 November 2011.

Lamy calls for trade opening to continue as global economic outlook worsens Director-General Pascal Lamy, in his annual report to WTO members on developments in the international trading environment, published on 21 November 2011, told members that “in a context of greater economic uncertainty and rising global risks, it is all the more important that the process of global trade opening continues”. In the light of a worsening of the global economy in recent months, with the forecast for world export growth revised downwards to 5.8% in 2011, he warned that unilateral action to shield domestic industries will not solve global problems but might make things worse by triggering a spiral of tit-for-tat reactions in which every country will lose.

Stabilization policies could destabilize food prices, farm committee hears The world’s food import bill is likely to make a record-breaking leap to unprecedented heights, while policies to stabilize prices might have backfired, the WTO Agriculture Committee heard on 17 November 2011.

New farm talks’ chair reports on cotton consultations WTO agriculture negotiators elected New Zealand Ambassador John Adank as their new chairperson on 18 November 2011 and heard his report on consultations about a proposed ministerial decision on cotton.

WTO launches discussion forum for World Trade Report 2012 The WTO launched on 18 November 2011 a new discussion forum devoted to next year’s World Trade Report. The theme of the report is “Looking beyond international cooperation on tariffs”.

WTO appoints two new Appellate Body members The WTO Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) appointed on 18 November 2011 the following two new members to the seven-member Appellate Body: Messrs Ujal Singh Bhatia of India and Thomas R. Graham of the United States for four years commencing on 11 December 2011.

Draft decisions agreed on poorest nations’ intellectual property and ‘non-violation’ WTO members meeting as the TRIPS (intellectual property) Council have reached consensus agreement on two draft decisions for their ministers to adopt in the 15-17 December 2011 Geneva Ministerial Conference.
