Altunjan: Reproductive Violence and International Criminal Law
This book deals with the phenomenon of conflict-related reproductive violence and explores the international legal framework’s capacity to respond to it. The international discourse on gender-based violence in conflicts tends to focus on sexualized crimes, which leads to incomplete narratives of the gendered dimensions of armed conflicts. In particular, international law has often remained silent on conflict-related violence affecting or aimed at the victim’s reproductive system.
The author conceptualizes reproductive violence as a distinct manifestation of gender-based violence and a violation of reproductive autonomy. The analysis explores the historical approaches to reproductive violence and evaluates the current potentials of international criminal law for its prosecution as genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. In this regard, it also develops proposals for a gender-sensitive interpretation of the existing legal framework as well as possible amendments to it.

Corten: “A la paix comme à la guerre ?” : Le droit international face aux exécutions extrajudiciaires ciblées
Cet ouvrage propose une réponse aux arguments juridiques avancés, essentiellement par les administrations étasuniennes depuis 2001, pour justifier des exécutions extrajudiciaires (targeted killings) perpétrées à l’étranger. Exposés dans un premier chapitre, ces arguments tendent à brouiller les catégories et raisonnements juridiques traditionnels, au nom d’une « guerre contre le terrorisme » qui justifierait des exécutions sans jugement, souvent dans le plus grand secret.
Des considérations de sécurité auraient ainsi généré une sorte d’état d’urgence permanent, qui permettrait de se comporter « à la paix comme à la guerre ». Dans ce contexte, le débat juridique se déploie sur deux fronts : celui des droits des Etats sur les territoires desquels ces exécutions ont lieu (droits abordés dans les chapitres 2 et 3, consacrés respectivement à la souveraineté de l’Etat et à l’interdiction du recours à la force), et celui des droits des personnes visées par ces exécutions et ceux de leurs proches (chapitres 4 et 5, traitant respectivement du droit des conflits armés et des droits humains).
Boysen: Die postkoloniale Konstellation: Natürliche Ressourcen und das Völkerrecht der Moderne
Die Begründung des internationalen Umweltrechts suchen die meisten in der Ortlosigkeit seines Gegenstands: Die ökologische Frage kann im Alleingang souveräner Staaten nicht bewältigt werden. Die etwa im Klimaschutzrecht evidenten regulatorischen Probleme lassen sich hiernach nur durch mehr Verrechtlichung und Konstitutionalisierung lösen. Doch das internationale Umweltrecht ist keineswegs ortlos, sondern hat eine sehr konkrete Geographie. Es ist keine Überwindung des Staatenvölkerrechts, sondern die Ausgestaltung der zentralen weltpolitischen Verschiebung im 20. Jahrhundert – der Auflösung des klassischen Imperialismus. Sigrid Boysen rekonstruiert die Begriffe und Institute des heutigen internationalen Umweltrechts genealogisch. Was einst dazu diente, die handelspolitischen Unsicherheiten nach Ablösung der kolonialen Herrschaft zu stabilisieren, teilt die Erde auch heute ein in industrialisierte Zonen und deren äußere Natur.

Coleman: The Presumption of Innocence in International Human Rights and Criminal Law
This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the presumption of innocence from both a practical and theoretical point of view. Throughout the book a framework for the presumption of innocence is developed.
The book approaches the right to presumption of innocence from an international human rights perspective using specific examples drawn from international criminal law. The result is a framework for understanding the right that is grounded in human rights law. This framework can then be applied across different national and international systems. When applied, it can help determine when the presumption of innocence is being infringed upon, eroded, violated, and ensure that the presumption of innocence is protected.
Subedi: Human Rights in Eastern Civilisations: Some Reflections of a Former UN Special Rapporteur
Based on the author's first-hand experience as a UN Special Rapporteur, this thought-provoking and original book examines the values of Eastern civilisations and their contribution to the development of the UN Human Rights agenda.
Offering an authoritative analysis of Hindu and Buddhist traditions, Surya P. Subedi, QC, focuses on the norms underpinning these two seminal Eastern philosophies to assess the extent to which the ancient civilisations already have human rights values embedded in them. Chapters explore the expression of values in the scriptures and practices of these philosophies, assessing their influence on the contemporary understanding of human rights. Rejecting the argument based on “Asian Values” that is often used to undermine the universality of human rights, the book argues that secularism, personal liberty and universalism are at the heart of both Hindu and Buddhist traditions.

This timely volume offers cutting edge contributions from leading global experts on access and benefit sharing of marine genetic resources; environmental impact assessments; capacity building and transfer of technology as well as Arctic environmental issues including security and shipping. Cross-cutting themes including the potential impact on existing legal frameworks and instruments are also explored.
de Búrca: Reframing Human Rights in a Turbulent Era
In recent years, human rights have come under fire, with the rise of political illiberalism and the coming to power of populist authoritarian leaders in many parts of the world who contest and dismiss the idea of human rights. More surprisingly, scholars and public intellectuals, from both the progressive and the conservative side of the political spectrum, have also been deeply critical, dismissing human rights as flawed, inadequate, hegemonic, or overreaching.
While acknowledging some of the shortcomings, this book presents an experimentalist account of international human rights law and practice and argues that the human rights movement remains a powerful and appealing one with widespread traction in many parts of the globe. Using three case studies to illuminate the importance and vibrancy of the movement around the world, the book argues that its potency and legitimacy rest on three main pillars: First, it is based on a deeply-rooted and widely appealing moral discourse that integrates the three universal values of human dignity, human welfare, and human freedom. Second, these values and their elaboration in international legal instruments have gained widespread - even if thin - agreement among states worldwide. Third, human rights law and practice is highly dynamic, with human rights being activated, shaped, and given meaning and impact through the on-going mobilization of affected individuals and groups, and through their iterative engagement with multiple domestic and international institutions and processes.
The book offers an account of how the human rights movement has helped to promote human rights and positive social change, and argues that the challenges of the current era provide good reasons to reform, innovate, and strengthen that movement, rather than to abandon it or to herald its demise.

O'Meara: Necessity and Proportionality and the Right of Self-Defence in International Law
States invariably justify using force extraterritorially by reference to their right of self-defence. In doing so, they accept that the exercise of this right is conditioned by the customary international law requirements of necessity and proportionality. However, these requirements are notorious for being normatively indeterminate and operationally complex. As a breach of either requirement renders ostensibly defensive action unlawful, increased determinacy regarding their scope and substance is crucial to how international law constrains military force.
This book examines the conceptual meaning, content, and practical application of necessity and proportionality as they relate to the right of self-defence following the adoption of the UN Charter in 1945. It provides a coherent and up-to-date description of the applicable contemporary international law and proposes an analytical framework to guide its operation and appraisal. This book argues that necessity and proportionality are conceptually distinct and must be applied in the foregoing order to avoid an insufficient 'catch-all' description of legality or illegality. Necessity determines whether defensive force may be used to respond to an armed attack and where it must be directed. Proportionality governs how much total force is permissible and prohibits excessive responses. Both requirements are shown to apply on an ongoing basis throughout the duration of an armed conflict prompted by self-defence. Compliance with necessity and proportionality ensures that the purposes of self-defence are met, and nothing more, and that defensive force is not unduly disruptive to third party interests and to international peace and security.
Sander: Doing Justice to History: Confronting the Past in International Criminal Courts
As communities struggle to make sense of mass atrocities, expectations have increasingly been placed on international criminal courts to render authoritative historical accounts of episodes of mass violence. Taking these expectations as its point of departure, this book seeks to understand international criminal courts through the prism of their historical function. The book critically examines how such courts confront the past by constructing historical narratives concerning both the culpability of the accused on trial and the broader mass atrocity contexts in which they are alleged to have participated.
The book argues that international criminal courts are host to struggles for historical justice, discursive contests between different actors vying for judicial acknowledgement of their interpretations of the past. By examining these struggles within different institutional settings, the book uncovers the legitimating qualities of international criminal judgments. In particular, it illuminates what tends to be foregrounded and included within, as well as marginalised and excluded from, the narratives of international criminal courts in practice. What emerges from this account is a sense of the significance of thinking about the emancipatory limits and possibilities of international criminal courts in terms of the historical narratives that are constructed and contested within and beyond the courtroom.
Bertotti, Heathcote, Jones, & Labenski: The Law of War and Peace: A Gender Analysis: Volume 1
The Law of War and Peace offers a cutting-edge analysis of the relationship between law, armed conflict, gender and peace. This book, which is the first of two volumes, focuses on the interplay between international law and gendered experiences of armed conflict. It provides an in-depth analysis of the key debates on collective security, unilateral force, the laws governing conflict, terrorism and international criminal law.
While much of the current scholarship has centered on the UN Security Council's Resolutions on Women, Peace and Security (WPS), this two-volume work seeks to move understandings beyond the framework established by WPS. It does this through providing a critical and intersectional approach to gender and conflict which is mindful of transnational feminist and queer perspectives.

Xiouri: The Breach of a Treaty: State Responses in International Law
In The Breach of a Treaty: State Responses in International Law, Maria Xiouri examines the relationship between responses to the breach of a treaty according to the law of treaties and the law of State responsibility, namely, between the termination of the treaty or the suspension of its operation and countermeasures.
Based on extensive analysis of State practice, the relevant legal instruments, international case law and literature, the book critically examines the concept of responses to the breach of a treaty, their legal regime and their operation in practice. It focuses on suspension of the operation of a treaty and countermeasures, challenging the prevailing view that there is a clear distinction between them, and argues that the former has been effectively superseded by the latter.

Giladi & Shany: Assessing the Effectiveness of the International Court of Justice
Through continuity with its predecessor, the Permanent Court of International Justice (PCIJ), the International Court of Justice (ICJ) is the longest-lived international court in existence. As the ‘World Court’, it embodies a crucial link between the present-day reality of international adjudication and its antecedent intellectual and ideological premises and institutional incarnation. As such, the ICJ serves as the archetype of international adjudication. Furthermore, as ‘the principal judicial organ’ of the UN, it enjoys a special position among other international courts and tribunals, and forms part of a global organization tasked with maintaining international peace and security. Among international courts and tribunals, it alone can claim to exercise jurisdiction that is potentially both general and universal, and its jurisdiction and jurisprudence may, and often does, touch on high politics and global governance. These unique features and the tensions they embody are crucial to the assessment of ICJ effectiveness.
The nature and magnitude of the challenges confronting the Court since 1945 are crucial for assessing its effectiveness. It survived, without major structural adjustment, dramatic changes in the world and in the nature of its business. Its constituency has radically transformed in numbers, identity, and outlook shortly after its establishment. All of these twists and turns underscore the high degree of institutional resilience of the ICJ in the face of exogenous pressures; the Court’s durability must also be accounted for when assessing its effectiveness.
The following Chapter offers a ‘broad brush’ discussion of the effectiveness of the ICJ. In Part 1 we introduce the evaluative framework used throughout this Chapter for assessing the Court’s effectiveness—a goal-based analysis. Part 2 discusses the goals of the ICJ as they derive explicitly and implicitly from its core documents. Part 3 introduces the structural features of the Court that facilitate, at times, and constrain, at other times, its potential for goal-attainment. Part 4 reviews the outcomes generated by the Court and juxtaposes them against its goals. Part 5 concludes.

Fenton-Glynn: Children and the European Court of Human Rights
The European Convention on Human Rights is one of the most influential human rights documents in existence, in terms of its scope, impact, and jurisdiction. Yet it was not drafted with children, let alone children's rights, in mind. Nevertheless, the European Court of Human Rights has developed a large body of jurisprudence regarding children, ranging from areas such as juvenile justice and immigration, to education and religion, and the protection of physical integrity. Its influence in the sphere of family law has been profound, in particular in the attribution of parenthood, and in cases concerning child abduction, child protection, and adoption.
This book provides a comprehensive and detailed overview of the jurisprudence of the Court as it relates to children, highlighting its many achievements in this field, while also critiquing its ongoing weaknesses. In doing so, it tracks the evolution of the Court's treatment of children's rights, from its inauspicious and paternalistic beginnings to an emerging recognition of children's individual agency.

Parr: Solving world problems: the Indian women’s movement, global governance, and ‘the crisis of empire’, 1933–46
This article examines global processes of decolonization through an analysis of Indian women’s interactions with world governance during the interwar ‘crisis of empire’. This distinct form of activism asserted anti-colonial claims through engagements with transnational civil society networks and the social work of the League of Nations and the International Labour Office. In doing so, it undermined imperial legitimacy, shifted the terms of liberal internationalism, and prepared the ground for later developments at the United Nations.
