The Asian Yearbook of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law aims to publish peer-reviewed scholarly articles and reviews as well as significant developments in human rights and humanitarian law. 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 Baltic Yearbook of International Law is published under the auspices of the Baltic Editorial Board within the framework of cooperation between the Riga Graduate School of Law and Brill/Nijhoff Publishers. The Yearbook aims to bring to the international debate issues of importance in the Baltic States, providing a forum for views on topical international law themes from Baltic and international scholars. The first volume appeared in 2001 with a symposium on the question of the international legal status of the Baltic States.

The Yearbook contains state practice reports from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and thus serves as an important source of international law unavailable elsewhere.

From time to time the Yearbook offers articles discussing the history of international law and current issues in Eastern Europe and the Russian Federation, thus making regional discourse more accessible to a wider global audience.

Volume 22 starts with a symposium, based on the European Society of International Law’s "Regional Developments of International Law in Eastern Europe and Post-Soviet Eurasia" research forum, which was held on 27-28 April 2023 at the University of Tartu, Estonia. The general articles section in this volume is a case study of Latvia’s response to the migration crisis on the Latvia-Belarus border.
Over the past two decades, EU Member States have regularly complained about the perceived abuse of EU law via marriages of convenience, allegedly contracted between mobile EU citizens and third-country nationals. During the pre-Brexit years, the UK had been voicing particularly strong concerns about the issue, which ultimately resulted in regulatory changes both at the EU and national level.
In this book, Aleksandra Ancite-Jepifánova pursues two interrelated aims. First, she evaluates the compatibility of EU-level measures addressing marriages of convenience with EU free movement law by focusing on the Citizenship Directive. Second, she examines the regulation of the issue in UK law in so far as it concerns the residence rights of EU citizens and their family members, both pre-and post-Brexit.
A Legal Study Based on the Example of Selected Countries of Central and Eastern Europe Belonging to the European Union
Volume Editor:
Every active lawyer nowadays must be a constitutionalist, that is, an expert in constitutional law. This thought also applies to civil law specialists. 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.
