Les grandes d cisions de la jurisprudence fran aise de DIPublic N 1re dition
L'ouverture des juridictions françaises aux normes d'origine internationale, européennes en particulier, s'est singulièrement accrue durant les quinze dernières années. Fidèle à la vocation de la collection des « Grands arrêts », l'ouvrage présente une sélection des décisions les plus emblématiques du Conseil constitutionnel, du Conseil d'État et de la Cour de cassation et fait le point sur les conditions, la portée et les limites auxquelles les juridictions nationales assujettissent la reconnaissance, dans l'ordre juridique interne français, des normes de droit international public et européen. Ce volume décrit cette jurisprudence qui clarifie progressivement les conditions internes d'incorporation des traités, de la coutume ou des actes des organisations internationales, leur place dans la hiérarchie française des normes, les limites de leur invocabilité par les justiciables, notamment la condition de l'effet direct. Il illustre la consolidation de l'office du juge en matière internationale, le recul de la théorie des actes de gouvernement et la multiplication corrélative des contrôles juridictionnels (de conventionnalité, de communautarité, de constitutionnalité des normes internationales). Toutes ces questions, qui présentent un intérêt théorique indéniable, ont une incidence pratique considérable qui fait de cet ouvrage un instrument de travail tant pour la communauté universitaire que pour les praticiens, magistrats ou avocats, de France ou d'ailleurs. Ce recueil de commentaires des « grandes décisions de la jurisprudence française de droit international public » est le fruit d'un travail collectif réalisé sous les auspices du Centre de Droit international de Nanterre (CEDIN).
General Reports of the XIXth Congress of the International Academy of Comparative Law Rapports G n raux du XIX me Congr s de l Acad mie Internationale de Droit Compar
This book deals with convergences of legal doctrine despite jurisdictional, cultural, and political barriers, and of divergences due to such barriers, examining topics that are of vital importance to contemporary legal scholars. Written by leading scholars from more than twenty countries, its thirty-two chapters present a comparative analysis of cutting-edge legal topics of the 21st century. While each of the countries covered stands alone as a sovereign state, in a technologically advanced world their disparate systems nonetheless show comparable strategies in dealing with complex legal issues. The book is a critical addition to the library of any scholar hoping to keep abreast of the major trends in contemporary law. It covers a vast area of topics that are dealt with from a comparative point of view and represents the current state of law in each area.
International Law between Universalism and Fragmentation
This Festschrift is published on the occasion of Gerhard Hafner’s 65th birthday and his retirement as a professor at the University of Vienna. It assembles a great number of renowned friends and colleagues in international law honouring Gerhard Hafner’s outstanding career as scholar, diplomat, legal adviser and arbitrator. The diversity of areas selected for this Festschrift reflects the generalist approach of Gerhard Hafner towards international law. Among the topics on which his contribution was particularly influential are the fragmentation of international law, the law of State immunity and international criminal law, which feature prominently in the Festschrift. Other areas covered are the theory of international law (including sources), basic principles of international law, codification of international law, subjects of international law, international dispute settlement, the law of the sea and international environmental law, human rights and humanitarian law and the law of the European Union.
An International Restatement of Contract Law
The Unidroit Principles of International Contracts, first published in 1994, have met with extraordinary success in the legal and business community worldwide. Prepared by a group of eminent experts from all major legal systems of the world, they provide a comprehensive set of rules for international commercial contracts. Available in more than 20 language versions, they are increasingly being used by national legislatures as a source of inspiration in law reform projects, by lawyers as guidelines in contract negotiations and by arbitrators as a legal basis for the settlement of disputes. In 2004 a new edition of the Unidroit Principles was approved, containing five new chapters and adaptations to take into account electronic contracting. This new edition of An International Restatement of Contract Law is the first comprehensive introduction to the Unidroit Principles 2004. In addition, it provides an extensive survey and analysis of the actual use of the Unidroit Principles in practice with special emphasis on the different ways in which they have been interpreted and applied by the courts and arbitral tribunals in the hundred or so cases reported worldwide. The book also contains the full text of the Preamble and the 180 articles of the Unidroit Principles 2004 in Chinese, English, French, German, Italian and Russian as well as the 1994 edition in Spanish. Published under the Transnational Publishers imprint.
Extraterritorial Application of Human Rights Treaties
Questions as to when a state owes obligations under a human rights treaty towards an individual located outside its territory are being brought more and more frequently before both international and domestic courts. Victims of aerial bombardment, inhabitants of territories under military occupation, deposed dictators, suspected terrorists detained in Guantanamo by the United States, and the family of a former KGB spy who was assassinated in London through the use of a radioactive toxin, allegedly at the orders or with the collusion of the Russian government - all of these people have claimed protection from human rights law against a state affecting their lives while acting outside its territory. These matters are extremely politically and legally sensitive, leading to much confusion, ambiguity and compromise in the existing case law. This study attempts to clear up some of this confusion, and expose its real roots. It examines the notion of state jurisdiction in human rights treaties, and places it within the framework of international law. It is not limited to an inquiry into the semantic, ordinary meaning of the jurisdiction clauses in human rights treaties, nor even to their construction into workable legal concepts and rules. Rather, the interpretation of these treaties cannot be complete without examining their object and purpose, and the various policy considerations which influence states in their behaviour, and courts in their decision-making. The book thus exposes the tension between universality and effectiveness, which is itself the cause of methodological and conceptual inconsistency in the case law. Finally, the work elaborates on the several possible models of the treaties' extraterritorial application. It offers not only a critical analysis of the existing case law, but explains the various options that are before courts and states in addressing these issues, as well as their policy implications.
