‘This is the essential book today for understanding maritime security law” -Prof. James Kraska (US Naval War College & Harvard Law School)

The recrudescence of great power competition at sea raises several legal problems. Maritime Security Law in Hybrid Warfare brings together authors from various fields of international law to address such challenges in the legal intersection between naval war, military activities, maritime law enforcement, and hybrid warfare. This book explores the means for increasing legal resilience against the emerging trend of weaponization of commercial ships, underwater cables and pipelines, lawfare, and migration by hybrid adversaries.

International law is increasing in relevance to the topic of secession. This book demonstrates that if a secessionist entity’s effectiveness is achieved in violation of peremptory norms, the emergence of statehood is precluded, thereby challenging a classical view of secession as purely factual and meta-legal. Dr. Júlia Miklasová coins the term “illegal secessionist entity,” demonstrates the pervasive effects of the original illegality on the subsequent relations of such entities (purported diplomatic, treaty, economic relations, acts and laws) and outlines the overlapping regimes of the law of occupation, human rights law and duty of non-recognition. Post-Soviet secessionist entities result from an illegal use of force. They are thus prohibited from becoming States, and further consequences of their illegality apply.
How to legally assess the situation when humanitarian actors in non-international armed conflicts are arbitrarily denied access to the affected civilian population? The book answers this question from the perspective of the five main actors involved in humanitarian relief in non-international armed conflicts: the affected State, non-State armed groups, humanitarian actors, non-belligerent States and the affected civilian population. It examines the legal regulations and consequences for each of these actors. In doing so, the book not only draws attention to existing legal gaps and challenges, but also encourages readers to rethink outdated legal concepts and discuss new approaches.

“In the face of such ‘unspeakable truths,’ wouldn’t it be better to simply, quietly bow down?” (Kora Andrieu: Sorry for the Genocide, 2009). This book takes an interdisciplinary approach to the question of colonial crimes. In order to reconcile with massive systemic injustice, not only the historical foundations and legal questions are relevant, but also political viewpoints and peace ethics. The book demonstrates that, in the face of extreme violence, even genocide, a political apology can be an effective tool for conflict transformation, even when the injustice is far in the past.

Abstract

“In the face of such ‘unspeakable truths,’ wouldn’t it be better to simply, quietly bow out?” (Kora Andrieu: Sorry for the Genocide, 2009) The book affirms this question regarding colonial injustice and violence. The focus is on the Herero and Nama genocide committed by the German Empire at the beginning of the 20th century in today’s Namibia. While dealing with the past had long been avoided in Germany, reconciliation processes have finally begun. In the book, an interdisciplinary approach brings historical foundations, legal questions, political responses and the approach of peace ethics together to conclude: In the face of extreme violence, a political apology can be an effective instrument for conflict transformation, even if the injustice is far in the past. For in coming to terms with massive systemic injustice, not only legal questions and peace and security policy viewpoints are important; at least in the same way ethical considerations are relevant.
