Do national legislatures constitute a mechanism by which commitments to international human rights treaties can be made credible? Treaty ratification can activate domestic mechanisms that make repression more costly, and the legislative opposition can enhance these mechanisms. Legislative veto players raise the cost of formalistic repressive strategies by declining to consent to legislation. Executives can still choose to rely on more costly, extralegal strategies, but these could result in severe penalties for the leader and require the leader to expend resources to hide. Especially in treaty member-states, legislatures can use other powers to also increase the cost of extralegal violations, which can further reduce repression. By using an empirical strategy that attempts to address the selection effects in treaty commitment decisions, I show that positive effects of human rights treaties increase when there are more legislative veto players.

There are many variables of territoriality available to national courts under contemporary international law. Does the same apply to the International Criminal Court? And if so, what are the limits to the teleological expansion of the Court's territorial jurisdiction as regards, for example, partial commission of a crime in State not Party territory, crimes committed over the internet or crimes committed in occupied territories? Michael Vagias's analysis of the law and procedure surrounding the territorial jurisdiction of the Court examines issues such as the application of localisation theories of territoriality and the means of interpretation for article 12(2)(a); the principle of legality (nullum crimen sine lege) and human rights law for the interpretation of jurisdictional provisions; compétence de la compétence; crimes committed over the internet; and the procedure for jurisdictional objections.

Its mission is to initiate and support projects dedicated to improving dialogue and understanding between the two countries. It is also dedicated to introducing and supporting educational initiatives on these topics in Poland and Russia as well as organizing conferences, symposia, and other discussions related to these issues.
The Institute of Law Studies of the Polish Academy of Sciences is one of the most prominent scientific research institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences within the area of social sciences. The function of the Institute managed by Prof. Władysław Czapliński is to coordinate and conduct basic research in the area of legal studies, both from the theoretical and practical perspectives.
When: 19-20 March 2015
Where: Foksal Press Centre, Foksal Street 3/5, 00-366 Warsaw, Poland
The annexation of Crimea and the subsequent Russian interference in Eastern Ukraine pose a challenge to contemporary, widely-accepted system of international norms. This deliberate attempt to change political and legal order established after the Second World War requires in-depth assessment through the prism of law. It is of utmost importance to replace “law talk” with rigorous legal analysis of those events given their possible implications for the international law. Special attention shall be given to the following legal issues: the use of force and the threat of use of force, the crime of aggression, annexation, incorporation, occupation, recognition/non-recognition, state responsibility, individual responsibility, statehood and self-determination in international law, territorial integrity, state support for the armed bands, groups, irregulars or mercenaries, the nature of direct participation of regular armed forces without insignia in combat.
Call for papers:
Submission of papers proposals:
The Organizing Committee of the Conference “The Case of Crimea in the Light of International Law: its Nature and Implications” now invites proposals for conference papers.
Proposals for papers may include both theoretical studies and selected case studies and shall fall within the following streams:
1. Self-determination and the right to secession (Whether they are contradictory or complementary? What is the scope of the right to self-determination? What is the relation between self-determination and autonomy? What are the implications of the annexation of Crimea with respect to the Eastern Ukraine?)
2. Defining the use of force, aggression, armed attack (What are the legitimate reactions to unlawful use of force? Does use of force or an armed attack constitute a war?, What is the scope of the prohibition of use of force established in the UN Charter?)
3. International responsibility (state responsibility and the responsibility of the individual) (What are the consequences of the state's international responsibility?, What is the responsibility for the violation of humanitarian law?, Are targeted sanctions enforcing responsibility against individual or a state?
4. Recognition in international law (Is a conflict between constitutive and normative theories still relevant? What is the impact of non-recognition on the scope of international obligations? What is the role of recognition in creating international subjectivity?
5. Reactions of international community (Are economic sanctions/ targeted sanctions effective? When and what kind of sanctions are effective? What kind of sanctions are appropriate for flagrant breaking of international law? What are the responsibilities of the international community in the case of an annexation of foreign territory?)
Speakers will be selected on the basis of abstracts submitted in response to this Call for Papers. Both senior and junior scholars (PhD students included) are encouraged to apply.
All proposals will be selected through a peer-review process from the abstracts received in response to this Call. Submission of a paper proposal:
Proposals must contain the following elements: author’s name and affiliation; paper title; paper abstract – abstracts must not exceed 500 words in English; abstracts must adequately set out the author’s argument and its implications for one of the general themes of the Conference. The time limit for each selected speech in sessions is max. 15 min. A short presentation (communiqué) should not exceed 7 min. Limitations above may not apply to papers to be published after the conference.
The Call for Papers is now open. Please send proposals via e-mail in a separate attached file (doc., docx., rtf., pdf) to: firstname.lastname@example.org Deadline for the submission of proposals: 30 November 2014.

Most people believe that it is sometimes morally permissible for a person to use force to defend herself or others against harm. In Defensive Killing, Helen Frowe offers a detailed exploration of when and why the use of such force is permissible. She begins by considering the use of force between individuals, investigating both the circumstances under which an attacker forfeits her right not to be harmed, and the distinct question of when it is all-things-considered permissible to use force against an attacker. Frowe then extends this enquiry to war, defending the view that we should judge the ethics of killing in war by the moral rules that govern killing between individuals. She argues that this requires us to significantly revise our understanding of the moral status of non-combatants in war. Non-combatants who intentionally contribute to an unjust war forfeit their rights not to be harmed, such that they are morally liable to attack by combatants fighting a just war.

Can criminal responsibility for the most serious crimes of concern to the international community be established even if the agent lacked a clear awareness of the unlawful outcome? The answer to this crucial question depends on whether a criminal system views the mental element applicable to core international crimes as encompassing forms of risk-taking. The study explores the legal solutions that have been developed in Germany, the USA, before the UN ad hoc Tribunals and the ICC. The overarching goal of the survey is not only to provide a comprehensive overview of the legal landscape, but also to suggest ways in which existing accounts of responsibility can be revisited in light of the interplay of domestic and international courts in prosecuting core international crimes.

This book argues that national and international courts seek to enhance their reputations through the strategic exercise of judicial power. Courts often cannot enforce their judgments and must rely on reputational sanctions to ensure compliance. One way to do this is for courts to improve their reputation for generating compliance with their judgments. When the court's reputation is increased, parties will be expected to comply with its judgments and the reputational sanction on a party that fails to comply will be higher. This strategy allows national and international courts, which cannot enforce their judgments against states and executives, to improve the likelihood that their judgments will be complied with over time. This book describes the judicial tactics that courts use to shape their judgments in ways that maximize their reputational gains.

This chapter explores how the wide range of interpreters that populate international law, forming part of interpretive communities, affects interpretation in international law. To understand how interpretation in international law works in practice, we need to appreciate the role of interpretive communities in the interpretive process — an influence that is routinely overlooked. To look only at interpretive directions, such as the principles of interpretation found in the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (VCLT), is insufficient. Any account of interpretation is incomplete without the sociological dimension of interpretive communities. The meaning of international law norms hinges on background principles shared by interpreters who form part of one or several interpretive communities. The focus is not on individual interpreters, but rather on the relationship among interpreters. Individual and group identity, the background and the shared understandings of interpreters are key ingredients in the interpretive process.
This chapter first discusses the character of interpretive communities (Part I), before showing how practices and shared understandings within those interpretive communities shape interpretation (Part II). Part III contends that interpretive debates in international law are a contest between various actors over which normative vision of international law to advance in various issue areas.
