Quantification of Performances as Regulatory Technique
Volume Editors: , , and
The trend of measuring performances is global and pervasive. We all live in quantified societies, in which performances in an ever-growing array of fields–from education to health, work to credit, justice to consumption–are assessed and governed through quantitative techniques. While the disruption brought by the quantitative turn has been widely studied by social scientists, legal research on the issue is minimal. This book aims to fill the gap. The essays herein collected explore how performance measurements interact with the law in different regions and sectors, which legal effects they produce, and for whose benefit.

Ongoing work of the International Law Commission on State succession with respect to State responsibility begs the question: how does this new matter fit into the broader concept of State succession? This book presents a detailed analysis of the complete codified field of State succession, with new observations and the relevant elements of State responsibility. Dr. Grega Pajnkihar provides insight into how these two areas of international law are interlinked and why State responsibility should not be treated differently from other matters of succession.
This book presents the first comprehensive analysis of the risk of double compensation, often called double recovery, in the investor-State dispute settlement (ISDS) system and proposes a practical solution to the problems which double compensation creates. The book responds to all the key questions that legal counsel, arbitrators, judges, and scholars facing the double compensation issue may have, including:
  • What requirements must be met for the problem to arise?
  • What have others said and done about the problem?
  • What is the most effective way to tackle it?
The proposed solution is based on currently available legal doctrines and practice and strikes a balance between investors’ and States’ interests.

Exploring both these treaties and the relevant regional jurisprudence, this monograph provides the first analysis of the ground-breaking environmental human rights law being developed in Latin America and the Caribbean. The key feature of the regional law is the priority it gives to equality and non-discrimination for vulnerable persons and groups, environmental defenders, local communities and indigenous peoples.
