The New Zealand Yearbook of International Law, launched in 2004, is an annual, internationally refereed publication intended to stand as a reference point for legal materials and commentary on public international law generally and with particular emphasis on issues concerning New Zealand, Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, including critical writing in those areas. It boasts an exceptional Advisory Board consisting of leading national and international academics and practitioners who are called upon to provide input through the double blind refereeing process used to assure the quality of the submissions published in each volume. The Yearbook also serves as a valuable tool in the determination of trends, state practice and policies in the development of international law in New Zealand, the Southern Ocean and Antarctica and seeks to generate scholarship in those fields. In this regard the Yearbook contains an annual ‘Year-in-Review’ of developments in international law of particular interest to New Zealand. Equally so, New Zealand offers a unique environment, owing to its size, population and strategic proximity to the Southern Ocean, Antarctica, and the South Pacific, that makes the New Zealand Yearbook of general interest to the international community. It is for the latter reason that the Yearbook contains a section dedicated to the ‘The South Pacific’.
The Chinese (Taiwan) Yearbook of International Law and Affairs commenced publication in 1981 under the auspices of the Chinese (Taiwan) Society of International Law.

The Yearbook is one of the foremost publications in the world concentrating on issues of greater China.

The International Water Law Series publishes scholarly and other expert work on the increasingly important field of international freshwater law. Fresh water shared by two or more states, whether in the form of surface water or groundwater, is in growing demand as populations increase and economic activities such as agriculture and hydroelectric power production continue to develop. In addition, climate change is already bringing with it challenges to the established order, including a spectrum of problems ranging from droughts, glacial melting and reduced precipitation to floods and other water-related disasters caused by increasingly extreme climatic events. Works in this series will address these problems, proposing carefully-considered methods of dealing with them, where appropriate.

The Max Planck Commentaries on World Trade Law explain the whole range of world trade law in seven individual article-by-article type commentaries. While the first volume ( WTO – World Economic Order, World Trade Law) serves as a nutshell-type introduction to the WTO, the remaining six volumes focus on specific aspects of WTO law. The second volume ( WTO – Institutions and Dispute Settlement) brings together the WTO institutional fundamentals and the whole dispute settlement. The third volume ( WTO – Technical Barriers and SPS Measures) deals with the most controversial provisions on technical standards, protection of health and environment. The fourth volume ( WTO – Trade Remedies) is devoted to the very specific area of antidumping, subsidies and safeguards. The fifth volume ( WTO – Trade in Goods) comments on the substantial trade in good rules of the GATT/WTO. Finally, the sixth and seventh volume ( WTO – Trade in Services and WTO – Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) deal with intellectual property rights and trade in services rules respectively.
This wide ranging series provides expert insights into the most fundamental aspects of the law of treaties. Both practitioners and academics, political actors and international lawyers will benefit from these studies on the theory of the law of the treaties as well as the practical and political implication of multilateral agreements.
