Cuddy & Kattan: Making Endless War: The Vietnam and Arab-Israeli Conflicts in the History of International Law

Brian Cuddy
(Macquarie Univ. - Security Studies) & Victor Kattan (Univ. of Notthingham - Law) have published Making Endless War: The Vietnam and Arab-Israeli Conflicts in the History of International Law (Univ. of Michigan Press 2023). The table of contents is here. Here's the abstract:
Making Endless War is built on the premise that any attempt to understand how the content and function of the laws of war changed in the second half of the twentieth century should consider two major armed conflicts, fought on opposite edges of Asia, and the legal pathways that link them together across time and space. The Vietnam and Arab-Israeli conflicts have been particularly significant in the shaping and attempted remaking of international law from 1945 right through to the present day. This carefully curated collection of essays by lawyers, historians, philosophers, sociologists, and political geographers of war explores the significance of these two conflicts, including their impact on the politics and culture of the world’s most powerful nation, the United States of America. The volume foregrounds attempts to develop legal rationales for the continued waging of war after 1945 by moving beyond explaining the end of war as a legal institution, and toward understanding the attempted institutionalization of endless war.

Azaria: The Conditions for Inferring a 'Dispute' from State Silence

Danae Azaria (Univ. College London - Law) has posted The Conditions for Inferring a 'Dispute' from State Silence. Here's the abstract:
Silence as opposition has been under-explored in international law scholarship. This article focuses on the legal meaning of State silence as opposition with a view to establishing the existence of a dispute, which is a requirement for the existence of jurisdiction of numerous international courts and tribunals. Building on the pleadings before and decisions of the International Court of Justice (ICJ), the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (‘ITLOS’), arbitral awards of tribunals having jurisdiction under Annex VII of LOSC, and investment inter-State arbitral decisions, this study argues that State practice and international decisions support the proposition that three conditions must exist in order for opposition and thus a dispute to be inferred from the silence of a prospective respondent State. First, a State must fail to respond, namely it remains silent Second, the silence must be in response to a claim by another State. Third, the claim must be made in circumstances that call for the silent State’s reaction. These stringent conditions make the inference of opposition and of a dispute from State silence an exceptional eventuality, and do not lower but arguably even heighten the threshold for establishing jurisdiction.

Heath: ‘Rival Lawmakers’: China’s Boycotts and the Making of Modern Economic Sanctions

J. Benton Heath (Temple Univ. - Law) has posted ‘Rival Lawmakers’: China’s Boycotts and the Making of Modern Economic Sanctions. Here's the abstract:

This paper traces the influence of a series of Chinese boycotts between 1905 and 1932 on the development of the law concerning modern economic sanctions. During this period, Chinese citizens, often despite official condemnation from the government, launched a series of protests targeting American, British, and Japanese goods. These boycotts caused economic damage, disrupted international relations, and at times won significant political victories. At the same time, they captured the attention and imaginations of peace advocates, lawyers, and scholars, who saw in the boycotts either a fundamental threat to state-based legal ordering, a promising avenue for enforcing interstate peace, or, most radically, an engine for new forms of political organization outside of the typical forms of state and empire. And, in responding to the boycotts, these lawyers and scholars articulated a set of principles that, today, form the basis for the modern law of economic sanctions.

This history, it is argued, requires us to reconsider the conventional wisdom on economic sanctions. This paper encourages a break from prevailing narratives, emphasizing instead the role of non-Western ideas. It challenges any attempt to draw easy distinctions between private, citizen-led boycotts and state-based economic sanctions, showing how arguments about the two practices were long intertwined. It demonstrates how the actions of the Chinese boycotters impacted the international legal history of modern sanctions, and it shows how this history might have unfolded differently. And it recovers the relationship between economic sanctions and fundamental questions of state formation and legal ordering, which remain relevant today.

Dam-de Jong & Sjöstedt: Research Handbook on International Law and Environmental Peacebuilding

Daniëlla Dam de Jong
(Leiden Univ. - Law) & Britta Sjöstedt (Lund Univ. - Law) have published Research Handbook on International Law and Environmental Peacebuilding (Edward Elgar Publishing 2023). This volume is open access. The table of contents can be found here. Here’s the abstract:
This incisive Research Handbook addresses the growing recognition within the international law community that natural resource governance and environmental protection are crucial aspects of peace processes, both as a security imperative and as an opportunity for peacebuilding. Examining the impact of international normative and institutional frameworks on environmental peacebuilding, this Research Handbook features contributions from distinguished experts and global case studies on integrated legal approaches to the governance of natural resources. The emerging field of environmental peacebuilding has mainly drawn from disciplines like political science, peace and conflict studies, economics, and social geography, leaving international legal perspectives largely unexplored. This book seeks to address this gap by examining how international legal norms and institutions impact environmental peacebuilding.

Kennedy & Koskenniemi: Of Law and the World: Critical Conversations on Power, History, and Political Economy

David Kennedy
(Harvard Univ. - Law) & Martti Koskenniemi (Univ. of Helsinki - Law) have published Of Law and the World: Critical Conversations on Power, History, and Political Economy (Harvard Univ. Press 2023). Here's the abstract:

The modern world is legalized: legal language, institutions, and professionals are everywhere. But what is law’s power in global life? What does all this legality have to do with hegemony, with hierarchy and inequality, and with the diversity of human experience? What is its history and how does that history matter in world affairs? Above all, what does it mean to think “critically” about law and global affairs? In this poignant and iconoclastic book, two leading scholars take us to the heart of the matter, examining law’s relationship with history, power, and political economy.

David Kennedy and Martti Koskenniemi have often inspired each other and are both considered “critical” voices in international law, but they have never explored their similarities and differences as deeply as they do here. Of Law and the World takes the form of a conversation, as the authors reflect on the study of international law, the motivations underlying their research, and the payoffs and limitations of their investigations into law’s role in global affairs. They revisit and renew debates about the past and future of the many legalities that shape our world.

LeClercq: A Worker-Centered Trade Policy

Desiree LeClercq (Cornell Univ. - School of Industrial and Labor Relations) has posted A Worker-Centered Trade Policy (Columbia Journal of Transnational Law, Vol. 61, No. 3, 2023). Here's the abstract:

What is a “worker-centered” trade policy? The Biden administration claims that it means protecting all workers—foreign and American—from exploitative working conditions in trade sectors. The administration’s vigorous enforcement of international labor rights suggests a significant departure from previous U.S. trade priorities centered on domestic interests. For economic and humanitarian reasons, various policymakers and scholars celebrate these developments. They optimistically assume that the administration’s new trade policy will influence foreign governments and facilities to comply with international labor rights in trade if the costs of noncompliance outweigh the benefits. They also assume that the policy will influence compliance with strong labor protections as negotiated on the international platform. Both assumptions are misplaced.

Outside the trade context, governments, employers, and workers negotiate how international labor rights mani-fest in their countries based on pragmatic issues such as political ideologies, economic capacity, and legal systems. Those actors tend to respect those labor rights because they actively participate in the design, monitoring, and enforcement processes. Despite its newfound interest in ensuring compliance with international labor rights under U.S. trade agreements, the Biden administration excludes foreign workers, employers, and counterpart governments from those processes. That exclusion risks obscuring and distorting enforcement predictability, perceptions of legitimacy, and the scope of international labor rights protections within and outside the United States—all of which may reduce or weaken compliance and protections for workers in trade sectors. If the administration sincerely intends to protect workers from trade-related exploitation worldwide, it must stop reinforcing its own discretion and control and start reinforcing the participatory processes embedded in international labor rights.

Živković: Fair and Equitable Treatment and the Rule of Law

Velimir Živković
(Univ. of Warwick - Law) has published Fair and Equitable Treatment and the Rule of Law (Edward Elgar Publishing 2023). Here's the abstract:

By comprehensively investigating the Fair and Equitable Treatment Standard (FET), this discerning book presents how this standard in investment treaty disputes can be both legally justified and realistically beneficial. It reflects on how FET jurisprudence can be advantageous to both the rule of law and to the legitimacy of the international investment regime.

Fair and Equitable Treatment and the Rule of Law provides a unique argument concerning the grounding of the FET standard in general principles of law and the importance of the host state’s national rule of law and pre-existing obligations for the application of the FET standard. Through a systematic examination of the FET and the concept of the rule of law, the book argues that further interpretation and application of FET should proceed as a sequential review, focusing firstly on the broadly understood domestic legal framework. Chapters present a convincing argument for this technique, concluding that applying such a method would not only be practical but would also allow for positive economic development.

Strecker & Powderly: Heritage Destruction, Human Rights and International Law

Amy Strecker
(Univ. College Dublin - Law) & Joseph Powderly (Leiden Univ. - Law) have published Heritage Destruction, Human Rights and International Law (Brill | Nijhoff 2023). The table of contents is here. Here’s the abstract:

Yu: Dispute Settlement and the Reform of International Investment Law: Legalization through Adjudication

Chen Yu
(National Univ. of Singapore) has published Dispute Settlement and the Reform of International Investment Law: Legalization through Adjudication (Edward Elgar Publishing 2023). Here's the abstract:

The reform of the Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) mechanism has become one of the more controversial issues in the study of international investment law. This concise and insightful book studies the role of the ISDS mechanism in the legalization, and legitimacy, of the international investment law regime.

Providing a fresh, interdisciplinary perspective on ISDS through the constructivist theory of international relations, this book argues that reforming ISDS can contribute to the legalization of international investment law, but such a contribution is subject to both “institutional” and “internal” limitations. Chapters investigate the notion of legalization in the context of international investment law, the limitations of adjudicative bodies in advancing the legitimacy of international law, and the relationship between the level of shared understandings and choices of institutionalization. Based on comparative studies of international regimes, this book cautions against radically institutionalizing the dispute settlement regime through the establishment of the multilateral investment court.

Eichensehr & Hathaway: Major Questions about International Agreements

Kristen Eichensehr (Univ. of Virginia - Law) & Oona A. Hathaway (Yale Univ. - Law) have posted Major Questions about International Agreements (University of Pennsylvania Law Review, forthcoming). Here's the abstract:

The Supreme Court’s recent expansion of the major questions doctrine has rocked administrative law, throwing into doubt executive agencies’ statutory authority for numerous regulations. Some justices have suggested that they want to go further and reinvigorate the non-delegation doctrine as a constitutional limit on Congress’s authority to delegate power to the executive branch. This Article is the first to consider how these developments might put at risk the United States’ international commitments.

The Article first identifies the role of congressional delegations to the executive branch with respect to the formation and implementation of ex ante congressional-executive agreements, executive agreements pursuant to treaties, sole executive agreements, and non-binding agreements, and it explains how the Supreme Court’s recent decisions might spark challenges to the agreements themselves or to the executive’s authority to implement them.

Turning from the diagnostic to the prescriptive, the Article takes the Supreme Court’s recent cases as a given (problematic though they are) and argues that delegations involving international agreements differ from purely domestically focused delegations in material ways that counsel against applying the major questions doctrine or non-delegation doctrines to them. In particular, the existence of foreign state counterparties with whom the executive must negotiate means that Congress cannot simply direct the executive branch on international agreements with the same specificity that it can in domestically focused legislation. Moreover, declaring an existing international agreement or its implementing legislation invalid based on a domestic statutory interpretation doctrine risks causing the United States to violate international law, as well as suffer harm to its reputation as a reliable agreement partner. Treating international agreement-related delegations identically to domestically focused ones would also run counter to long-standing historical gloss from the Supreme Court itself that treats foreign relations-related issues in exceptional ways.

After arguing against using the major questions and non-delegation doctrines to police delegations related to international agreements, the Article proposes steps that the courts, Congress, and the executive branch can each take to ensure that existing and future international agreements are well-grounded in constitutional and statutory law.
