Today international law is everywhere. Wars are fought and opposed in its name. It is invoked to claim rights and to challenge them, to indict or support political leaders, to distribute resources and to expand or limit the powers of domestic and international institutions. International law is part of the way political (and economic) power is used, critiqued, and sometimes limited. Despite its claim for neutrality and impartiality, it is implicit in what is just, as well as what is unjust in the world. To understand its operation requires shedding its ideological spell and examining it with a cold eye. Who are its winners, and who are its losers? How - if at all - can it be used to make a better or a less unjust world? In this collection of essays Professor Martti Koskenniemi, a well-known practitioner and a leading theorist and historian of international law, examines the recent debates on humanitarian intervention, collective security, protection of human rights and the 'fight against impunity' and reflects on the use of the professional techniques of international law to intervene politically. The essays both illustrate and expand his influential theory of the role of international law in international politics. The book is prefaced with an introduction by Professor Emmanuelle Jouannet (Sorbonne Law School), which locates the texts in the overall thought and work of Martti Koskenniemi.

What is the relationship between politics and international law? Inspired by comparative politics and socio-legal studies, this Research Handbook develops a novel framework for comparative analysis of politics and international law at different stages of governance and in different governance systems. It applies the framework in a wide range of fields—from human rights and environmental standards, to cyber conflict and intellectual property—to show how the relationship between politics and international law varies depending on the sites where it unfolds.

Leading the debate on the domestic effect of the growing influence of international adjudication, this invaluable text examines Serbia and Croatia’s erratic record of compliance with the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY). Since the demise of the Milosevic and Tudjman regimes, Serbian and Croatian governments have been inconsistent in cooperating with the ICTY, despite the conditions of EU membership and US financial incentives. This study reconstructs events before, during and after extradition to build up a picture of the complex politics involved in ICTY relations, and provides a conceptual framework to study compliance in international relations and law. Through this analysis, a historical tracing of varied factors of political influence and a conceptualization of compliance is provided, resulting in a rich interdisciplinary work embracing political science, international relations and social theory. By scrutinizing the social meanings and political practices which become attached to prescribed norms in compliance processes, this book provides a highly-relevant insight into contemporary meanings of ‘compliance’. Politics of International Law and Compliance will be of interest to students and scholars of politics, international relations and international law, and European politics.

Treaty conflicts are not merely the contingent or inadvertent by-products of the increasing juridification of international relations. In several instances, states have deliberately created treaty conflicts in order to catalyse changes in multilateral regimes. Surabhi Ranganathan uses such conflicts as context to explore the role of international law, in legal thought and practice. Her examinations of the International Law Commission's work on treaties and of various scholars' proposals on institutional action, offer a fresh view of 'mainstream' legal thought. They locate, in a variety of writings, a common faith in international legal discourse, built on liberal and constructivist assumptions. Ranganathan's three rich studies of treaty conflict, relating to the areas of seabed mining, the International Criminal Court, and nuclear governance, furnish a textured account of the specific forms and practices that constitute such a legal discourse and permit a grounded understanding of the interactions that shape international law.

How do politics and international economic law interact with each other? Financial crises and shifts in global economic patterns have refocused our attention on how the fingerprints of the 'visible hand' can be seen all over the institutions that underpin the rules of globalization. From trade and investment to finance, governments are under pressure to enforce, resist and rewrite international economic law. Lawyers have seldom given enough attention to the influence of politics on law, whereas political scientists have had an on-again, off-again fascination with how the law influences relations among states. This book leads the way toward filling this interdisciplinary gap, through a series of important studies written by leaders in the field on specific problems in international economic relations. The book demonstrates a variety of ways in which the international political-economic nexus may be researched and understood.

Observes how the growth of the political authority of the Council challenges the basic idea that states have legal autonomy over their domestic affairs. The individual essays survey the implications that flow from these developments in the crucial policy areas of: terrorism; economic sanctions; the prosecution of war crimes; human rights; humanitarian intervention; and the use of force. In each of these areas, the evidence shows a complex and fluid relation between state sovereignty, the power of the United Nations, and the politics of international legitimation. Demonstrating how world politics has come to accommodate the contradictory institutions of international authority and international anarchy, this book makes an important contribution to how we understand and study international organizations and international law. Written by leading experts in the field, this volume will be of strong interest to students and scholars of international relations, international organizations, international law and global governance.

Mit Daten zu Leben und Werk, exklusiv verfasst von der Redaktion der Zeitschrift für Literatur TEXT + KRITIK. In einer seiner bekanntesten Schriften entwickelt Immanuel Kant mit atemberaubender Modernität ein Staatskonzept, das zum ›Ewigen Frieden‹ nicht nur eine politisch argumentierende Öffentlichkeit voraussetzt, sondern auch internationale Rechtsverbindlichkeit fordert. 150 Jahre später beginnen die Vereinten Nationen ihre Arbeit daran. Aber Kant mischt sich in seinen anderen Schriften auch in Fragen der Alltagskultur ein, die nichts an Aktualität verloren haben, zum Beispiel das Raubkopieren ...

Das vorliegende Buch wendet sich an jeden, den es interes siert, wie Menschen denken und Problem e lösen. Es stelIt die wichtigsten Ansätze, Methoden und Forschungsergebnisse der erst 75 lahre alten Psychologie des Denkens dar und will eine systematische Übersicht über unser heutiges Grundwissen vom menschlichen Denken bieten, anstatt sich auf einen ein zigen Gesichtspunkt zu konzentrieren. Moderne Theorien fin den sich hier ebenso wie grundlegende Erkenntnisse über de duktives Denken, Konzeptlernen, Stadien des Problemlösens, Aufgabenlösen und andere Aspekte. Diese Einflihrung in die Psychologie des Denkens setzt keine Vorkenntnisse voraus. Sie eignet sich fiir Kurse in kog nitiver Psychologie, Lernen und Gedächtnis und soll ver wendbar sein in Bereichen, in denen Problemlösen wichtig ist, etwa Unterricht, Wirtschaft, Mathematik. SchlieBlich richtet sie sich auch an den Leser, den ganz allgemein interessiert, was Psychologen über das Denken wissen. Viele Kollegen und Studenten von mir haben das Fehlen eines Lehrbuchs über die "höheren" Aspekte des Denkens und Lernens beklagt. Vorhandene Werke neigten entweder dazu, Forschungsergebnisse zu einem bestimmten Problem zusammenzufassen - etwa der Klassiker von Bruner, Good now und Austin, A Study of Thinking (1956) - oder eine Rei he von Aufgaben um eine einzige spezifische Theorie zu grup pieren - etwa Newell und Simons eindrucksvolles Buch Hu man Problem Solving (1972). Oft fehlte Büchern fiir Lehrer und andere, die problemlösendes Denken vermitteln wollen, jeder Bezug zur psychologischen Literatur - etwa Polyas schmalem Klassiker How to Solve It (1957).

Die Regierung unter Donald Trump mischt die internationale Politik auf. Dabei stellt sie internationale Normen ebenso in Frage wie etablierte Beziehungen und Organisationen. Nicht wenige sehen hierin einen Angriff auf die liberale Weltordnung. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes nehmen die Außen- und Sicherheitspolitik der Trump-Regierung zum Ausgangspunkt, um näher zu bestimmen, welche Prinzipien diese Ordnung ausmachen und inwieweit sie durch die gegenwärtige amerikanische Politik beeinträchtigt werden. Fokussiert wird dabei sowohl auf den Akteur Trump, den Twitter-Provokateur und Narzissten, als auch auf die etablierten Strukturen, die durch die aktuelle Politik verschoben werden, die diese aber auch zu begrenzen vermögen. Der Band zeichnet ein differenziertes Bild von Trumps Präsidentschaft, ohne dabei die tiefer liegenden Gefahren zu relativieren.

Urban environments pose enormous difficulties for those planning and conducting military operations within the boundaries of international law and self-imposed political constraints. To help the Air Force develop concepts of operation to conduct joint urban military operations effectively and at lower risk to U.S. forces, this report examines the legal and political context within which urban air operations would take place.

This collection of thirteen essays explains and analyzes the conflict between the Government of Israel and the Palestine Authority over the granting of sovereignty to Palestinians from the point of view of international law. The dispute--emotional, so far intractable, often violent--is of global, not merely Middle Eastern concern. The essays cover two general topics: the political nature of the conflict and the economic issues. The collection includes eight respected contributions previously published and five newly written essays. The contributors represent a range of political alignments and differing perspectives, providing the widest possible scope for understanding the issues and beliefs relating to the conflict. Includes bibliography and index.

The universal promise of contemporary international law has long inspired countries of the Global South to use it as an important field of contestation over global inequality. Taking three central examples, Sundhya Pahuja argues that this promise has been subsumed within a universal claim for a particular way of life by the idea of 'development'. As the horizon of the promised transformation and concomitant equality has receded ever further, international law has legitimised an ever-increasing sphere of intervention in the Third World. The post-war wave of decolonisation ended in the creation of the developmental nation-state, the claim to permanent sovereignty over natural resources in the 1950s and 1960s was transformed into the protection of foreign investors, and the promotion of the rule of international law in the early 1990s has brought about the rise of the rule of law as a development strategy in the present day.
