Baltic Yearbook of International Law, Volume 5 (2005)


Editor: Carin Laurin
It has become a tradition of the Baltic Yearbook of International Law to focus on a particular theme in addition to publishing articles on different topics of international law. Since the end of the Cold War and the change of the balance of power in the world, many questions surrounding the use of force in international relations have come to the forefront of the legal and political debate at national and international levels. This volume contains articles on issues related to the use of force, including the disputed notion of humanitarian intervention.
In the section on History of International Law in the Baltic States, the most notable contributors to the doctrine and/or practice of international law of Baltic origin have been identified. The International Law Materials 2004 section contains reports on the practices of all three Baltic States.
The Baltic Yearbook of International Law is an annual publication containing contributions on topical issues of international law and related fields that are relevant to Baltic affairs and beyond. The Yearbook aims to contribute to the development of thought, standard-setting and relevant practices in the world.
