    to The Hague First Edition Ronen Steinke To anyone setting out to explore the entanglement of international criminal justice with the interests of States Germany is a particularly curious exemplary case Although a liberal democracy since 1949 its political position has altered radically in the last 60 years Starting from a position of harsh scepticism in the years following the Nuremberg Trials and opening up to the rationales of international criminal justice only slowly and then mainly in the context of domestic trials against functionaries of the former East German regime after 1990 Germany is today one of the most active supporters of the International Criminal Court The climax of this is its campaigning to make the ICC independent of the UN Security Council a debate in which Germany took a position in stark contrast to the United States This book offers new insight into the debates leading up to such policy shifts Drawing on government documents and interviews with policymakers it enriches a broader debate on the politics of international criminal justice which has to date often been focused primarily on the United States Ronen Steinke is a lawyer and a political journalist with S ddeutsche Zeitung Hardback May

    a variety of measures including carrier sanctions interception of migrants at sea posting of immigration officers in foreign countries and external processing of asylum seekers This book focuses on the legal implications of external mechanisms of migration control for the protection of refugees and irregular migrants The book explores how refugee and human rights law has responded to the new measures adopted by states and how states have sought cooperation with other actors in the context of migration control The book defends the thesis that when European states attempt to control the movement of migrants outside their territories they remain responsible under international law for protecting the rights of refugees as well as their general human rights It also identifies how EU law governs and constrains the various types of pre border migration enforcement employed by EU Member States and examines how unfolding practices of external migration control conform with international law This is a work which will be essential reading for scholars and practitioners of asylum and refugee law throughout Europe and the wider world The book received The Max van der Stoel Human Rights Award 2011 first prize category dissertations and the Erasmianum Study Prize 2011 Maarten den

    Mirko Sossai The outsourcing of military and security services is the object of intense legal debate States employ private military and security companies PMSCs to perform functions previously exercised by regular armed forces and increasingly international organisations NGOs and business corporations do the same to provide security particularly in crisis situations Much of the public attention on PMSCs has been in response to incidents in which PMSC employees have been accused of violating international humanitarian law Therefore initiatives have been launched to introduce uniform international standards amidst what is currently very uneven national regulation This book analyses and discusses the interplay between international European and domestic regulatory measures in the field of PMSCs It presents a comprehensive assessment of the existing domestic legislation in EU Member States and relevant Third States and identifies implications for future international regulation The book also addresses the crucial questions whether and how the EU can potentially play a more active future role in the regulation of PMSCs to ensure compliance with human rights and international humanitarian law Christine Bakker is a Research Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence specialising in human rights law including children s rights Mirko Sossai is lecturer in

    generation a world where BITs define the scope and conditions according to which states are economically accountable for the consequences of regulatory change and administrative action Investment arbitration in the BIT generation carries new functions which pose unprecedented normative challenges such as the arbitral bodies established to resolve investor state disputes defining the relationship between property rights and the public interest They also review state action for arbitrariness and define the proper tests under which that review should proceed State Liability in Investment Treaty Arbitration is an interdisciplinary work aimed at academics and practitioners which focuses on five key dimensions of BIT arbitration First it analyses the past practice of state responsibility for injuries to aliens placing the BIT generation in historical perspective Second it develops a descriptive law and economics model that explains the proliferation of BITs and why they are all worded so similarly Third it addresses the legitimacy deficits of this new form of dispute settlement weighing its potential advantages and democratic shortfalls Fourth it gives a comparative overview of the universal tension between property rights and the public interest and the problems and challenges associated with liability grounded in illegal and arbitrary state action Finally it

    headlines of any major newspaper will reveal Many of the declarations made at the highest level are of course vaguely expressed and carry no tangible legal commitment But others deliver a very clear message for instance the US s April 2010 declaration on its future use of nuclear weapons or Kosovo s declaration of independence and pledge to follow the Ahtisaari Plan are two recent and prominent examples of unilateral declarations at the international level The same sources however also reveal that while state promises are accepted as a means for states to create full blown legal commitments the law governing such declarations is far from clear This monograph fills a gap in international legal scholarship by raising and answering the question of the precise legal value of such pledges in the realm of public international law After a brief introduction state promises in international law are defined and contrasted with other unilateral acts of states and the history of promises in state practice and court decisions is delineated together with scholarly opinion The book then provides a detailed picture of the international legal framework governing promises of states and ends with a brief assessment of the raison d tre

    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
