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.
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.

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.
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.

The volume combines theoretical approaches with case studies and involves scholars from various disciplines in order to provide a comprehensive view of the issue.
