The global nature and seriousness of the threats to biodiversity have created a pressing need for international law. In 1992, under the aegis of the United Nations, States adopted the Convention on Biological Diversity. Numerous sectoral and/or regional conventions coexist alongside it, as well as a body of customary rules. The study of international biodiversity law also leads us to go beyond the issues of protection and preservation, to address the questions raised by the use and exploitation of biodiversity. In this respect, international biodiversity law interacts, and sometimes conflicts, with other rules of international law.
The ambition of this book is not to offer an exhaustive presentation of an abundant but still scattered body of law, but rather to contribute to its conceptualization. International biodiversity law is also an excellent laboratory for studying current developments in contemporary international law, notably the institutionalization of cooperation, the development of secondary law, the articulation between customary and conventional rules, and innovative mechanisms for monitoring and assisting States.
Digital advancements are changing the face of international dispute resolution. This book examines the impact of digitalization and new technologies on international arbitration, discussing both advantages and challenges. It seeks to answer the question of whether international law in the field of international commercial arbitration is keeping pace with technological change. It takes a fresh look at issues that have recently emerged in the international arbitration landscape by focusing on the innovative use of artificial intelligence, particularly in relation to blockchain and ODR. Against this background, the Chinese solutions are worth analyzing and watching.

Founding Editor:
The aim of the Hague Yearbook of International Law is to offer a platform for review of new developments in the field of international law. In addition, it devotes attention to developments in the international law institutions based in the international City of Peace and Justice, The Hague.
This Special Issue of Yearbook stems from a conference organised by the Maastricht University Study Group for Critical Approaches to International Law in April 2022. The conference, entitled 'Deconstructing International Law,' invited participants to reflect on and dismantle some of the foundational ideas of international law.
This course situates international law in its historical time and cultural context in order to view its role in history through a broader lens, across different societies and cultural frameworks.
Changing perceptions of the phenomenon of the Leviathan exemplifies the evolution of international law and the witch hunt which originated in Europe and spread to other continents.
The notions of territoriality and extraterritoriality are discussed in the context of space in postmodern international law. This book will also present the great impact of colonialism on international law. The role of the international protection of fundamental rights is identified as a key factor, evidenced by the protection of religious, ethnic and sexual orientation and gender identity minorities. Lastly, the establishment of the limits on war and the use of force, as well as the interplay between interdependence and cooperation, are depicted as critical challenges in the evolution of international law.
A Case for the Integrated Protection and Preservation of Shared Inland Water Ecosystems
This book anchors its arguments in Article 20 of the Watercourses Convention and explores consistencies and inconsistencies in parallel definitions, substantive and procedural obligations and institutional arrangements in IWL, and the Ramsar and Biodiversity Conventions with respect to the protection and preservation of ecosystems of shared inland waters. Dr. Yang Liu argues that the all-around informed and integrated application of IWL and MEAs is essential for the effective protection and preservation of shared inland water ecosystems. However, the degree of cross-fertilization of parallel provisions should be examined on a case-by-case basis in light of the legal analytical framework deployed in this study.
