Lieblich: The International Wrongfulness of Unlawful Consensual Interventions

Eliav Lieblich (Tel Aviv Univ. - Law) has posted The International Wrongfulness of Unlawful Consensual Interventions (Zeitschrift für ausländisches öffentliches Recht und Völkerrecht, forthcoming). Here's the abstract:

Recent years have witnessed an upsurge in the literature on the lawfulness, under international law, of forcible interventions in states upon governmental consent. The contemporary discussion mirrors, to an extent, the classic debate between those that view such interventions - at least when a certain level of conflict is reached - as strictly prohibited, and those that presume that in general, governments possess the power to invite external intervention, subject to certain limitations.

This brief contribution addresses a question which is frequently glossed over in the discussion: on either approach, what do we mean when we say that in a certain situation, an intervention is unlawful? Or, in other words, which international norm is violated when a consensual intervention is wrongful? As a point of departure, this contribution urges to distinguish between situations in which consent is void ab initio,and situations where the consent itself is valid, but the actions committed pursuant to it are unlawful. This is crucial since if consent lacks any legal effect, it could be said that the intervention violates the prohibition on the use of force. The contribution then offers a brief typology of circumstances that fall under these categories.

Call for Session Ideas: 2020 ASIL Annual Meeting (Deadline Today)

The American Society of International Law has issued a call for session ideas for its 114th Annual Meeting, which will take place April 1-4, 2020, in Washington, DC. The conference theme is: "The Promise of International Law." The deadline is today, July 16, 2019. Here's the call:

The Promise of International Law

In a world of increasing polarization and threats to individual and collective security, many turn to international law for guidance and protection, while others consider this body of law and the institutions that apply it ill-equipped to address evolving needs. Has international law lived up to its full potential and is it equipped to safeguard the peaceful coexistence of its subjects, to protect human rights and the environment, and to contribute to the attainment of shared prosperity?

The year 2020 will give us much to reflect upon and to reaffirm. Even as states have withdrawn or sought to withdraw from agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, and the Treaty on European Union, the international community will commemorate other enduring institutions and commitments in 2020. For example, the United Nations will mark its 75th anniversary amidst calls for significant reforms to global governance. The year 2020 also will see the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the entry into force of the Treaty of Versailles and of the Covenant of the League of Nations, the 50th anniversary of the Declaration on Principles of International Law concerning Friendly Relations and Cooperation among States, and the 20th anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on women, peace and security. At the same time, the year 2020 will serve as a reminder that we have but ten years left to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which envisage "a world of universal respect for human rights and human dignity, the rule of law, justice, equality and non-discrimination."

At its 114th Annual Meeting in 2020, the American Society of International Law (ASIL) invites policymakers, practitioners, academics, and students of international law to reflect upon the successes and failures of international law. Has international law held states, military forces, multinational corporations, and other actors – both public and private – to account for their international obligations? What role do regulatory bodies, international institutions, and non-governmental organizations play in actualizing the objectives of international law? Can and should international law be expected to produce just outcomes in all circumstances? The Annual Meeting presents an opportunity for the Society to take stock of the past successes and failures of international law while reaffirming the promise it holds for the future.

Thematic Tracks:

  • International Human Rights, Humanitarian Law, and Criminal Justice
  • Transnational Litigation, Arbitration, and Dispute Resolution
  • Trade, Investment, Finance, and Technology
  • Sustainable Development and Global Governance
  • Security, Foreign Relations, and Use of Force
  • Energy, Environment, Sea, and Space
