Chaumette & Tams: International Inspections/Les inspections internationales

Anne-Laure Chaumette
(Université Paris Nanterre) & Christian J. Tams (Univ. of Glasgow - Law) have published International Inspections/Les inspections internationales (Brill | Nijhoff 2022). Here's the abstract:

International inspections are a common technique of international law. Inspectors visit prison camps, chemical factories, nuclear reactors, and research stations in Antarctica — to assess whether the provisions of international law are complied with. But notwithstanding this practical relevance, international lawyers have tended to neglect international inspections, at least as a general category: what studies exist, tend to focus on particular regimes, providing much detail but insufficient orientation.

The present volume takes a different approach. It looks at a wide range of inspection regimes and seeks to identify cross-cutting issues. While reflecting their heterogeneity, its central aim is to situate international inspections in the wider field of international law’s means of control and to highlight elements of unity in diversity. Combining panoramic and kaleidoscopic perspectives, the volume’s sixteen chapters encourage international lawyers to engage more fully with international inspections.

Les inspections internationales sont une technique courante du droit international. Les inspecteurs visitent des lieux de détention, des usines chimiques, des réacteurs nucléaires et des stations de recherche en Antarctique, pour évaluer si les règles du droit international sont respectées. Malgré cet intérêt pratique, les juristes internationaux ont eu tendance à négliger les inspections internationales, du moins en tant que catégorie générale : les études existantes tendent à se concentrer sur des régimes particuliers, fournissant beaucoup de détails mais sans réelle approche globale.

Le présent ouvrage adopte une démarche différente. Il examine un large éventail de régimes d'inspection et cherche à en dégager les éléments transversaux. Tout en reflétant l’hétérogénéité des inspections, ce volume a pour principal objectif de situer les inspections internationales dans le champ plus large des moyens de contrôle du droit international et de mettre en évidence leur unité au-delà de leur diversité. Combinant des perspectives panoramiques et kaléidoscopiques, les seize chapitres du volume encouragent les juristes internationaux à s'engager encore dans l’étude des inspections internationales.

Schill & Tams: International Investment Protection and Constitutional Law

Stephan W. Schill
(Univ. of Amsterdam - Law) & Christian J. Tams (Univ. of Glasgow - Law) have published International Investment Protection and Constitutional Law (Edward Elgar Publishing 2022). The table of contents is here. Here's the abstract:

This book develops a conceptual framework that captures not only the tensions between constitutional values that are common to liberal democracies – human rights, democracy, and the rule of law – and the investment treaty regime, but also the potential for co-existence and complementarity.

Contributions from leading experts in the field address how different systems of constitutional law interact with the investment treaty regime. Chapters provide a detailed overview of the various forms of interaction, and critically engage with the competing claims for supremacy that constitutional law and international investment law formulate. The book also addresses the reactions within the investment treaty regime to the demands formulated by constitutional law, in particular the use of constitutional analogies to understand international investment law and investor-state dispute settlement.

Clarenc Bicudo, Couveinhes Matsumoto, Nollez-Goldbach, & Norodom: Un droit international français ? Pratiques françaises du droit international

Nathalie Clarenc Bicudo
, Florian Couveinhes Matsumoto, Raphaëlle Nollez-Goldbach, & Anne-Thida Norodom have published Un droit international français ? Pratiques françaises du droit international (Pedone 2022). Here's the abstract:
A l’heure où se rencontrent les courants contraires de la banalisation de l’application des règles internationales, et de la remise en cause de leur primauté en droit national, les organisatrices et l’organisateur de la 6ème Journée de Droit international de l’École normale supérieure ont estimé opportun de revenir sur la pratique française en matière de droit international, tant en amont et lors de sa formation (déclarations diverses, négociation, conclusion et ratification des traités) que lors de son application ou, mieux, de ses usages par les différents organes de l’État français (législateur, juge judiciaire, juge administratif, etc.). Classique, ce thème l’est certainement. On peut néanmoins le voir, non pas comme un regard nostalgique et autocentré, mais comme une contribution venue de France au vaste mouvement contemporain d’interrogation relative d’un côté aux foreign relations laws et de l’autre – un peu plus indirectement – au comparative international Law, c’est-à-dire aux versions nationales du droit international, et aux interrogations sur la montée en puissance d’un authoritarian international Law. Le sujet intéresse le droit international public mais aussi d’autres disciplines, notamment le droit constitutionnel, le droit international privé et le droit administratif. L’introduction générale rassemble donc les points de vue de spécialistes de ces disciplines à cet égard. Des questions plus circonscrites et plus techniques sont abordées ensuite, du point de vue de juges, administrateurs, jurisconsultes livrant ici leur expérience sur la façon dont, sur le terrain, le droit international est mobilisé dans l’exercice de leur mission. L’ensemble montre la prépondérance des pouvoirs présidentiel et ministériel, le peu de marge de manœuvre du Parlement dans la conduite des affaires étrangères, et également le caractère intéressé et en tout cas sélectif des emplois et interprétations des énoncés internationaux par le législateur et par les juges. Un constat qui n’étonnera pas l’habitué des pratiques juridiques internes ? Certes, mais également une somme d’informations rares et souvent de première main, qui font prendre conscience des transformations connues par les textes lorsqu’ils se rapprochent de leur consécration « positive » ou de leurs destinataires, et des manières dont ou parlementaires pourraient participer davantage qu’ils et elles ne le font aujourd’hui à leur élaboration et à leur application.
