It examines international human rights and humanitarian law with a global reach, though its particular focus is on the Asian region.

Volume 8 of the Yearbook covers a wide range of topics focusing on accountability under various legal regimes, which have been organized along four parts: Governance and Accountability, Justice and Accountability, Economic and Social Justice and Violence and Accountability.
Discretionary implementation and street-level bureaucracy
How much discretion do bureaucrats have when deciding who gets refugee status? Where does the boundary between law and practice lie when it comes to asylum in the European Union? In this book, you will find answers to these questions in an exploration of the decision-making context in which policy implementors conduct their work and turn policies into practice. Drawing from the insights of street-level bureaucracy and role-conflict theory, a better understanding is given of how decisions are made by policy implementers in situations of incomplete information or ambiguous policy vision and guidance.
Constitutional and International Law Challenges
Published on occasion of the 100 year anniversary of the Åland Islands’ autonomy, this book brings up and discusses a number of challenging issues, from constitutional and international law perspectives, concerning both the Åland situation and autonomy in general. Among the questions raised are:
Is autonomy part of international law and which international organisations may have jurisdiction?
Is autonomy a human right or is it about the prevention of violent conflicts?
Does the Åland Autonomy constitute a useful model for other minority groups? Do the Åland Islands stand to benefit from anything in international law, be it substantive or procedural?

The constitutionalization of private law and the Europeanization of private law are among the most fascinating phenomena of contemporary civil law science. A comprehensive comparison of the two phenomena has not yet been made. Even more so, it was not done from the perspective of the new EU member states. This gap is filled by this edited volume.
This book assesses whether humanitarian-intervention exists under customary international law. The main question being whether there is a right to humanitarian-intervention, and if so, according to what criteria, using historical analysis to determine its existence. By combining historical and legal methods running from the nineteenth century Ottoman Empire through to the contemporary Russia-Ukraine War, this book determines that such a right has been extinguished under international law.
