Professor "Can ado Trindade" develops his "Leitmotiv" of identification of a "corpus juris" increasingly oriented to the fulfillment of the needs and aspirations of human beings, of peoples and of humankind as a whole. With the overcoming of the purely inter-State dimension of the discipline of the past, international legal personality has expanded, so as to encompass nowadays, besides States and international organizations, also peoples, individuals and humankind as subjects of International Law. The growing consciousness of the need to pursue universally-shared values has brought about a fundamental change in the outlook of International Law in the last decades, drawing closer attention to its foundations and, parallel to its formal sources, to its material source (the universal juridical conscience). He examines the conceptual constructions of this new International Law and identifies basic considerations of humanity permeating its whole "corpus juris," disclosing the current processes of its humanization and universalization. Finally, he addresses the construction of the international rule of law, acknowledging the need and quest for international compulsory jurisdiction, in the move towards a new "jus gentium," the International Law for humankind.

"Professor Conçado Trindade, judge and former president of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, observes that, given the extraordinary expansion of the discipline along the last decades, it would be an impossible task to attempt to provide an in-depth and detailed treatment of international law. Thus, an element of selection is indeed necessary, and the author intends to provide an overall vision of the present state and perspectives of international law on the basis of a Leitmotiv. On the basis of his own experience in the handling of the theory and practice of international law throughout more than three decades, Professor Conçado Trindade thus presents his universalist vision of a corpus juris increasingly oriented to the fulfilment of the needs and aspirations of human beings, of peoples and of humankind as a whole. In the pursuance of this Leitmotiv, Professor Cançado Trindade sees no reason whatsoever to limit himself to positive international law, in face of unfortunate attempts of its deconstruction in theory and practice, which reflect the deep crisis of values in which the world seems engulfed at this beginning of the twenty-first century. Professor Cançado Trindade's fundamental contentions are that, besides States and international organizations, individuals also--the human person--are true subjects of international law, and that the conditions are set for us to move towards the construction of a new jus gentium, that will allow at this beginning of the twenty-first century to take into account the social needs and aspirations of the international community (civitas maxima gentium), of humankind as a whole. Professor Cançado Trindade addresses the question of the foundations of international law, its formation, the subjects of international law (in particular individuals and humankind), and the construction of the international law for humankind. The author addresses the humanization of international law, the settlement of disputes and the perspective of a new jus gentium in the next volume (Vol. 317)"--Publisher's description.

This volume examines the role and influence of multiculturalism in general theories of international law; in the composition and functioning of international organizations such as the ICJ, the ILC, the UN, and the ICC; and in the progressive development of substantive international law regarding issues such as anti-terrorism, cultural identity, the Danish cartoons controversy, indigenous peoples, and cultural exemptions at the WTO. With Forewords from Boutros Boutros-Ghali and Shigeru Oda, this authoritative volume contains contributions from 36 distinguished scholars from every continent of the world tackling multiculturalism and international law—an ever more topical issue—in honour of, appropriately, Edward McWhinney, an eminent scholar who has spent a substantial part of his life promoting multiculturalism.

The Common Concern of Humankind today is central to efforts to bring about enhanced international cooperation in fields including, but not limited to, climate change. This book explores the expression's potential as a future legal principle. It sets out the origins of Common Concern, its differences to other common interest legal principles, and expounds the potential normative structure and effects of the principle, applying an approach of carrots and sticks in realizing goals defined as a Common Concern. Individual chapters test the principle in different legal fields, including climate technology diffusion, marine plastic pollution, human rights enforcement, economic inequality, migration, and monetary and financial stability. They confirm that basic obligations under the principle of 'Common Concern of Humankind' comprise not only that of international cooperation and duties to negotiate, but also of unilateral duties to act to enhance the potential of public international law to produce appropriate public goods.
