Grundthese des Buches ist, dass ein Paradigmenwechsel stattgefunden hat, der den Menschen zum primaren Volkerrechtssubjekt macht. Diese These wird vor dem Hintergrund der Ideengeschichte und Dogmatik der Volkerrechtspersonlichkeit des Menschen entfaltet und auf die Rechtspraxis in zahlreichen Teilrechtsgebieten, angefangen vom Recht der internationalen Verantwortung uber das Recht des bewaffneten Konflikts, das Recht der Katastrophenhilfe, das internationale Strafrecht, das internationale Umweltrecht, das Konsularrecht und das Recht des diplomatischen Schutzes, das internationale Arbeitsrecht, das Fluchtlingsrecht bis hin zum internationalen Investitionsschutzrecht gestutzt. Der neue Volkerrechtsstatus des Menschen wird mit dem Begriff des subjektiven internationalen Rechts auf den Punkt gebracht.

Welche Bedingungen lassen Völker gerecht und friedlich zusammenleben? Unter welchen Umständen sind Kriege gerechtfertigt? Welche Leitlinien müssen gegeben sein für Organisationen, die eine gerechte Gesellschaft von Völkern mit gleichen Rechten herzustellen vermögen? In acht Grundsätzen für eine gerechte internationale Ordnung entwickelt der amerikanische Philosoph John Rawls einen hypothetischen "Vertrag der Gesellschaft der Völker". Das jüngste Buch von John Rawls ist nach A Theory of Justice 1971, dt. 1975) und Political Liberalism (1993, dt. 1998) ein weiteres wichtiges Werk des bedeutenden amerikanischen Philosophen. Die Originalausgabe (The Law of Peoples, 1999) hat zu heftigen Kontroversen geführt.

International lawyers have long recognised the importance of interpretation to their academic discipline and professional practice. As new insights on interpretation abound in other fields, international law and international lawyers have largely remained wedded to a rule-based approach, focusing almost exclusively on the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties. Such an approach neglects interpretation as a distinct and broader field of theoretical inquiry. Interpretation in International Law brings international legal scholars together to engage in sustained reflection on the theme of interpretation. The book is creatively structured around the metaphor of the game, which captures and illuminates the constituent elements of an act of interpretation. The object of the game of interpretation is to persuade the audience that one's interpretation of the law is correct. The rules of play are known and complied with by the players, even though much is left to their skills and strategies. There is also a meta-discourse about the game of interpretation - 'playing the game of game-playing' - which involves consideration of the nature of the game, its underlying stakes, and who gets to decide by what rules one should play. Through a series of diverse contributions, Interpretation in International Law reveals interpretation as an inescapable feature of all areas of international law. It will be of interest and utility to all international lawyers whose work touches upon theoretical or practical aspects of interpretation.

In the twenty-first century, traditional legal borders – both geographic and intellectual – have been increasingly contested. Many observers have questioned whether the long-held conceptions of sovereign state boundaries remain salient in a world of technology-accelerated transnational flows of people, capital, and information. Meanwhile, scholars across the social sciences and humanities have begun crossing disciplinary borders in unprecedented ways, co-opting new methodologies and engaging in meaningful and sustained dialogue about the meaning of law in its changing global context. These emerging movements prompt important questions: what are the nature and implications of shifting legal borders? What does the future hold for them? What role do new technologies play in this evolving story? Law and Disciplinarity: Thinking beyond Borders sets forth to answer these questions by way of distinguished scholars drawn from across a wide range of disciplines, including law, political science, international relations, and communications.

In a world full of armed conflict and human misery, global justice remains one of the most compelling missions of our time. Understanding the promises and limitations of global justice demands a careful appreciation of international law, the web of binding norms and institutions that help govern the behaviour of states and other global actors. This book provides a new interdisciplinary approach to global justice, one that integrates the work and insights of international law and contemporary ethics. It asks whether the core norms of international law are just, appraising them according to a standard of global justice derived from the fundamental values of peace and the protection of human rights. Through a combination of a careful explanation of the legal norms and philosophical argument, Ratner concludes that many international law norms meet such a standard of justice, even as distinct areas of injustice remain within the law and the verdict is still out on others. Among the subjects covered in the book are the rules on the use of force, self-determination, sovereign equality, the decision making procedures of key international organizations, the territorial scope of human rights obligations (including humanitarian intervention), and key areas of international economic law. Ultimately, the book shows how an understanding of international law's moral foundations will enrich the global justice debate, while exposing the ethical consequences of different rules.

International investment law is one of the fastest growing areas of international law. It has led to the signing of thousands of agreements, mostly in the form of investment contracts and bilateral investment treaties. Also, in the last two decades, there has been an exponential growth in the number of disputes being resolved by investment arbitration tribunals. Yet the legal principles at the basis of international investment law and arbitration remain in a state of flux. Perhaps the best illustration of this phenomenon is the wide disagreement among investment tribunals on some of the core concepts underpinning the regime, such as investment, property, regulatory powers, scope of jurisdiction, applicable law, or the interactions with other areas of international law. The purpose of this book is to revisit these conceptual foundations in order to shed light on the practice of international investment law. It is an attempt to bridge the growing gap between the theory and the practice of this thriving area of international law. The first part of the book focuses on the 'infrastructure' of the investment regime or, more specifically, on the structural arrangements that have been developed to manage foreign investment transactions and the potential disputes arising from them. The second part of the book identifies the common conceptual bases of an array of seemingly unconnected practical problems in order to clarify the main stakes and offer balanced solutions. The third part addresses the main sources of 'regime stress' as well as the main legal mechanisms available to manage such challenges to the operation of the regime. Overall, the book offers a thorough investigation of the conflicting theoretical positions underlying international investment law, testing their worth by reference to concrete issues that have arisen in the jurisprudence. It demonstrates that many of the most important practical questions arising in practice can be addressed by a carefully dosed resort to theory.

Stephen Kelmans furioser Debütroman beginnt, wo Politik und Medien die Worte versagen. Er erzählt von Menschen, die sich von der Gesellschaft im Stich gelassen fühlen und dies nicht länger hinnehmen wollen. Auch Harry Opoku ist einer von denen im Abseits. Wenn Harry mit seiner Taube spricht, wenn er der Schnellste seiner Klasse ist und immer neue Farben im Haribo-Sortiment entdeckt, dann scheint alles ganz harmlos. Dann wird ein Nachbarsjunge auf offener Straße erstochen, und keinen kümmert's. Harry aber beginnt seine abstrusen Ermittlungen. Eine Geschichte voll unschuldiger Erfahrung, die der rauen Realität alles entgegenhält. »Pigeon English ist ein durch und durch aufklärerisches Buch - ohne zu moralisieren. Es geht einem zu Herzen - ohne sich in Kitsch und Pathos zu verlieren. Es hilft zu verstehen, wo die meisten Debatten kläglich versagen. Nicht zuletzt aber und vor allem ist dies ein wunderbarer Roman.« NZZ

States reject inequality when they choose to ratify the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), but to date the ICESCR has not yet figured prominently in the policy calculus behind States' international economic decisions. This book responds to the modern challenge of operationalizing the ICESCR, particularly in the context of States' decisions within international trade, finance, and investment. Differentiating between public policy mechanisms and institutional functional mandates in the international trade, finance, and investment systems, this book shows legal and policy gateways for States to feasibly translate their fundamental duties to respect, protect, and fulfil economic, social and cultural rights into their trade, finance, and investment commitments, agreements, and contracts. It approaches the problem of harmonizing social protection objectives under the ICESCR with a State's international economic treaty obligations, from the designing and interpreting international treaty texts, up to the institutional monitoring and empirical analysis of ICESCR compliance. In examining public policy options, the book takes into account around five decades of States' implementation of social protection commitments under the ICESCR; its normative evolution through the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and the Committee's expanded fact-finding and adjudicative competences under the Optional Protocol to the ICESCR; as well as the critical, dialectical, and deliberative roles of diverse functional interpretive communities within international trade, finance, and investment law. Ultimately, the book shoes how States' ICESCR commitments operate as the normative foundation of their trade, finance, and investment decisions.

Die anhaltende Euro-Krise sowie die halbherzigen, oft populistischen Reaktionen der Politik lassen ein Scheitern des europäischen Projekts derzeit als reale Möglichkeit erscheinen. In seinem Essay verteidigt Jürgen Habermas Europa gegen die sich ausbreitende Skepsis, der er ein neues überzeugendes Narrativ für die Geschichte und vor allem die Zukunft der Europäischen Union entgegensetzt. Denkblockaden in Bezug auf die Transnationalisierung der Demokratie räumt er aus dem Weg, indem er den Einigungsprozess in den langfristigen Zusammenhang der Verrechtlichung und Zivilisierung staatlicher Gewalt einordnet. An die Politik richtet Jürgen Habermas schließlich den Appell, das bisher hinter verschlossenen Türen betriebene europäische Projekt endlich auf den hemdsärmeligen Modus eines lärmend argumentierenden Meinungskampfes in der breiten Öffentlichkeit umzupolen. Neben diesem Essay zur Verfassung Europas enthält dieser Band den Aufsatz »Das Konzept der Menschenwürde und die realistische Utopie der Menschenrechte« aus dem Jahr 2010 sowie drei Interventionen, die Jürgen Habermas seit dem Ausbruch der Finanzkrise veröffentlicht hat. »Angesichts eines politisch ungesteuerten Komplexitätswachstums der Weltgesellschaft, das den Handlungsspielraum der Nationalstaaten systemisch immer weiter einschränkt, ergibt sich die Forderung, die politischen Handlungsfähigkeiten über nationale Grenzen hinaus zu erweitern, aus dem normativen Sinn der Demokratie selbst.« Jürgen Habermas

Eine karge Insel im Westen Schottlands, ständige Stromausfälle und eine unsichere Telefonverbindung. Ein Zweijähriger, der die Nächte zum Tag macht, und ein Siebenjähriger, der die Tage damit verbringt, sich die originellsten Versionen des Weltuntergangs auszumalen. Dazu ein Ehemann, der einer in den Klippen heimischen Papageientaucherkolonie mehr Zeit widmet als seiner Familie: Unter diesen nicht gerade idealen Bedingungen versucht die Historikerin Anna Bennett, eine wissenschaftliche Arbeit zum Thema Kindheit im 18. Jahrhundert zu schreiben. Aber wie soll sie auch nur eine Zeile zu Papier bringen, wenn sie allein und völlig übernächtigt zwei unternehmungslustige Kleinkinder in einer felsigen Einöde beschäftigen muss? Als zwei rätselhafte Funde im Garten und auf dem Dachboden des sich seit Generationen im Familienbesitz befindlichen Wohnhauses zu allem Überfluss Einblicke in die düstere Vergangenheit der Insel gewähren, sieht Anna endgültig ihre Felle davonschwimmen. Doch dann verbindet sich ihr chaotischer Alltag auf unerwartete Weise mit ihrem Forschungsgegenstand und der Inselhistorie ... Gleichzeitig gute Mutter und Wissenschaftlerin zu sein, noch dazu auf einer abgelegenen, windigen Nordseeinsel - keine leichte Aufgabe. Sarah Moss schildert das Dilemma ihrer Heldin mit so viel Selbstironie, Komik und Intelligenz und das Geheimnis der Insel mit so großer Spannung, dass eines sicher ist: "Schlaflos" hält wach.

This book offers a path-breaking, empirically grounded theory that reframes the study of law and society. It shifts research from a predominantly national context to one that places transnational, national and local lawmaking and practice within a single, coherent, analytic frame. By presenting and elaborating a new concept, transnational legal orders, Halliday and Shaffer present an original approach to legal orders that affect fundamental economic and social behaviors. The contributors generate arrays of hypotheses about how transnational legal orders rise and fall, where they compete and cooperate, and how they settle and unsettle. This original theory is applied and developed by distinguished scholars from North America, Europe and Asia in business law (taxation, corporate bankruptcy, secured transactions, transport of goods by sea), regulatory law (monetary and trade, finance, food safety, climate change), and human rights law (civil and political rights, rule of law, right to health/access to medicines, human trafficking, criminal accountability of political leaders).

This book addresses practitioners in development cooperation as well as scientists and students who are interested in the interaction of human rights and development issues. In the practice of development cooperation, linking poverty reduction programs with human rights is mainly achieved using so-called “Rights-based Approaches to Development.” In this context the right to an adequate standard of living (including access to food, water and housing), the right to health and the right to social security are of particular importance – human rights that will play a key role in the design of the Post-2015 Development Agenda, which is currently being negotiated as a framework to succeed the Millennium Development Goals. The book provides an overview of the main international legal standards that are relevant for the protection of social rights, while also analyzing the content of those rights. Moreover, it informs readers on the current debates surrounding the extraterritorial obligations of donor countries and the duties of transnational corporations and international organizations (e.g. the World Bank and WTO) with regard to the implementation of social rights in the Global South.

Unlike many other trade regimes, the European Union forbids the use of inter-state retaliation to enforce its obligations, and rules out the use of common 'escape' mechanisms such as anti-dumping between the EU member states. How does the EU do without these mechanisms that appear so vital to the political viability of other international trade regimes, including the World Trade Organization? How, therefore, is the European legal order, with the European Court of Justice at its centre, able to be so much more binding and intrusive than the legal obligations of many other trade regimes? This book puts forward a new explanation of a key part of the European Union's legal system, emphasising its break with the inter-state retaliation mechanisms and how Europe's special form of legal integration is facilitated by intra-industry trade, parliamentary forms of national government, and European welfare states. It argues first that the EU member states have allowed the enforcement of EU obligations by domestic courts in order to avoid the problems associated with enforcing trade obligations by constant threats of trade retaliation. It argues second that the EU member states have been able to accept such a binding form of dispute settlement and treaty obligation because the policy adjustments required by the European legal order were politically acceptable. High levels of intra-industry trade reduced the severity of the economic adjustments required by the expansion of the European market, and inclusive and authoritative democratic institutions in the member states allowed policy-makers to prioritise a general interest in reliable trading relationships even when policy changes affected significant domestic lobbies. Furthermore, generous national social security arrangements protected national constituents against any adverse consequences arising from the expansion of European law and the intensification of the European market. The European legal order should therefore be understood as a legalized dispute resolution institution well suited to an international trade and integration regime made up of highly interdependent parliamentary welfare states.
