Protecting Civilians During Violent Conflict:

Theoretical and Practical Issues for the 21st Cenury

                                                                (Ashgate, 2012)

Daved W. Lovell & Igor Primoratz, eds.

Eloquently combining theory and practice, leading scholars from the fields of political science, law and philosophy have been brought together to provide an essential overview of some of the major ethical, legal and political issues with regard to protecting civilians caught up in modern inter- and intra-state conflicts. In doing so, they examine what is being done, and what can be done, to make soldiers more aware of their responsibilities in this area under international law and the ethics of war, and more able to respond appropriately to the challenges that will confront them in the field. ‘Protecting Civilians During Violent Conflict’ presents a clear-eyed look at the dilemmas facing regular combatants as they confront enemies in the modern battlespace, and especially the complications arising from the new styles of conflict where enemy and civilian populations merge.

Research Handbook On International Criminal Law
(Elgar, 2012)
Edited by Bartram S. Brown, Professor of Law and Co-Director, Program in International and Comparative Law, IIT Chicago–Kent College of Law, Illinois Institute of Technology, US

‘The Research Handbook is a comprehensive up-to-date guide to one of the youngest yet most dynamic areas of international law. It tackles the pertinent challenges and opportunities, starting with the classical issues like categories of international crimes and complementarity, going on to address the problems ahead including the Guantánamo regime, crimes against women and the status of private security contractors. The Handbook will be a valuable source for both general and advanced international criminal law research.’ – James Crawford, Cambridge University, UK

Research Handbook On The Law Of International Organizations
(Elgar, 2012)
Edited by Jan Klabbers and Åsa Wallendahl, Centre of Excellence in Global Governance Research, University of Helsinki, Finland

‘This timely book, with carefully selected contributions from many eminent international law scholars and practitioners, offers a rich theoretical as well as practical approach to understanding contemporary international organizations, especially in light of increased emphasis on issues of reform, constitutionalism and globalization. It speaks to key issues in the field with erudition and clarity. Among the issues comprehensively discussed are: personality, privileges and immunities, responsibility, decision-making procedures and dissolution and succession of international organizations. This book will be of great utility not only to international organizations and their staff, but also to academics, policy makers and those concerned with the very important and specialized field of international organizations law.’ – Edward Kwakwa, World Intellectual Property Organization

Statelessness And Citizenship
A Comparative Study on the Benefits of Nationality
(Elgar, 2012)
Edited by Brad K. Blitz, Professor of Human and Political Geography, Kingston University, London, UK and Maureen Lynch, Washington-based Affiliate, International Observatory on Statelessness

‘Embracing a subject that is generally treated abstractly, as a matter of human rights law, the authors of this pathbreaking book root statelessness deep into historical context and lived experience. They emerge with conclusions that are both dismaying (the expansive scope of the problem) and hopeful (the measurable progress some states have made in expanding the boundaries of citizenship). Alas, this eloquent book could hardly be more timely.’– Linda K. Kerber, University of Iowa, US

The Development and Principles of International Humanitarian Law

from Ashgate latest publications (20120

by Michael N. Schmitt and Wolff Heintschel von Heinegg

This volume of selected reprinted essays considers two aspects of international humanitarian law. The first is the development of this law, and articles offer an in-depth look at its early roots, the continuing relevance of that body of law despite advances in weapons technology and the efforts to progressively develop it. The second is the fundamental principles which underlie international humanitarian law: humanity and military necessity.
