At the same time, scientific and technological developments are posing new challenges for human rights. This book identifies new dimensions in the international protection of human rights and makes the case for a new human rights diplomacy focusing on enlarging the area of common ground among governments and enhancing national human rights protection systems.

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.

The notions of territoriality and extraterritoriality are discussed in the context of space in postmodern 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
Author:
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.
This authoritative commentary prepared by scholars from the Academic Network on the European Social Charter and Social Rights (ANESC) is intended for academic researchers studying social and economic rights in Europe and legal practitioners, civil society organisations, trade unions and state representatives engaging with the procedures of the European Committee of Social Rights.

The commentary consists of 106 chapters, organised into eight volumes on the substantive obligations of State Parties to the European Social Charter and the practice of the European Committee of Social Rights. Other chapters delve into the procedures that state representatives, international bodies and applicants must follow to engage with the Charter system.

Launched in 1991, the Asian Yearbook of International Law is a major internationally-refereed yearbook dedicated to international legal issues as seen primarily from an Asian perspective. It is published under the auspices of the Foundation for the Development of International Law in Asia (DILA) in collaboration with DILA-Korea, the Secretariat of DILA, in South Korea. When it was launched, the Yearbook was the first publication of its kind, edited by a team of leading international law scholars from across Asia. It provides a forum for the publication of articles in the field of international law and other Asian international legal topics.

The objectives of the Yearbook are two-fold: First, to promote research, study and writing in the field of international law in Asia; and second, to provide an intellectual platform for the discussion and dissemination of Asian views and practices on contemporary international legal issues.

Each volume of the Yearbook contains articles and shorter notes; a section on Asian state practice; an overview of the Asian states’ participation in multilateral treaties and succinct analysis of recent international legal developments in Asia; a bibliography that provides information on books, articles, notes, and other materials dealing with international law in Asia; as well as book reviews. This publication is important for anyone working on international law and international relations.
Article 18 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (VCLT) plays an indispensable role in promoting stable relations amongst States by obliging them to refrain from acts which would defeat the object and purpose of pending treaties. However, for more than 50 years since its adoption, Article 18 has lingered in a state of legal uncertainty. This book offers a complete guide to the precise scope and content of Article 18 VCLT by analysing its particular elements. Of relevance to scholars, practitioners, and postgraduate students of international law, it applies Article 18 VCLT to contemporary events in international law. It showcases the vitality and direct relevance of the provision in today’s international legal order, while offering concrete arguments for its effective application.
