Austrian Review of International and European Law, Volume 8 (2003)


Editor: Gerhard Loibl
The Austrian Review of International and European Law is an annual publication that provides a scholarly forum for the discussion of issues of public international and European law, with particular emphasis on topics of special interest for Austria. Its analytical articles focus on theoretical questions, current developments, and emerging tendencies in all areas of the field, including detailed reviews of relevant recent literature. Issues of human rights law and the law of international organisations are also covered. An important integral element of the Review is its digest of Austrian practice in public international law, encompassing judicial decisions, executive as well as parliamentary documents.
The editorial board and advisory board comprise scholars and practitioners in public international law and European law, ensuring that the Review adequately reflects the interrelationships between current developments in law and practice and the theoretical foundations of the continuing evolution of international law.
