The compatibility of ISDS in Bilateral Investment Treaties (BITs) and the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) with the autonomy of EU law
The EU’s participation in international dispute resolution mechanisms presents particular problems owing to its multilevel governance and its autonomy from international and national law. The inclusion of foreign direct investment in the Common Commercial policy in the Treaty of Lisbon, expanded those to investment arbitrations under Member States’ BITs, as the Court of Justice ruled in Achmea. EU Law and International Investment Arbitration, examines the impact of that inclusion beyond Achmea, from the perspectives of international and EU law, to the remaining extra-EU BITs of the Member States and the Energy Charter Treaty.
The Legal Regulation of Environmental Crime - The International and European Dimension provides a comprehensive analysis of the international and EU legal regimes for tackling environmental crime. The book includes an in-depth analysis of the major international legal conventions as they relate to the regulation of environmental crime (CITES, Basel, MARPOL) and provides a holistic overview of the evolution and content of EU law in the field of environmental crime, covering substantive criminal law harmonisation, judicial cooperation and the role of EU criminal justice bodies and agencies (Europol, Eurojust and the EPPO) in fighting environmental crime. Further, global experts address key recent policy and legislative developments in the field and offers a timely contribution to legal reform in view of the forthcoming publication of new proposals on legislation on environmental crime at EU level.
Reconciling Free Movement of Capital with Public Interest Objectives
This book explores how the EU free movement of capital provisions can be interpreted in order to allow certain forms of State participation in the market for the purposes of protecting public interest objectives in the context of privatisations and golden shares. Drawing from the international controversy regarding the risks and benefits of capital liberalisation, the book argues that the broad interpretation of ‘capital restrictions’ under Article 63 TFEU has significant consequences for national political economy choices and investigates the extent to which the existing legal framework set out in the Treaties offers room for reconciling economic integration with societal values.

Perspectives in International, European and Constitutional Law
Volume Editors: Benedikt C. Harzl and Roman Petrov
The book, which covers contributions from leading international and European law scholars and analyzes the legal and political status quo of non-recognized entities, comprises three parts. The first and the second part focus on contemporary trends of legal theory and practice concerning issues pertaining to secession and non-recognized entities in international and European law, respectively. Additionally, it touches upon EU policies, the issue of EU citizenship in light of secessionist movements in Europe, and the phenomenon of exterritorial naturalization within non-recognized entities. The third part scrutinizes the legal systems of non-recognized entities in the post-Soviet area, covering Eastern Ukraine, Crimea, Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Transnistria, and Nagorno-Karabakh.
Perspectives from International Law and European Governance
Dr. Natasha Stamenkovikj offers a comparative analysis of the scope and application of the right to the truth as a fundamental right in public international law, and as a concept in European policies for promoting peace and transitional justice.
The book provides a systematized assessment of the conceptualisation of the right to the truth in the enlargement policy of the Council of Europe as applied towards the former Yugoslav societies. By assessing the coherence of the Council’s standardization on the right to the truth, Dr. Stamenkovikj addresses the legitimacy of the Council as an exporter of values and creator of norms.
This volume of Annotated Legal Documents on Islam in Europe covers Spain and consists of an annotated collection of legal documents affecting the status of Islam and Muslims. The legal texts are published in the original Spanish language while the annotations and supporting material are in English. By legal documents are meant the texts of legislation, including relevant secondary legislation, as well as significant court decisions. Each legal text is preceded by an introduction describing the historical, political and legal circumstances of its adoption, plus a short paragraph summarising its content. The focus of the collection is on the religious dimensions of being Muslim in Europe, i.e. on individuals' access to practise their religious obligations and on the ability to organise and manifest their religious life.


This article explores how the conflict between the interests of protecting water quality in the coastal waters of the Baltic Sea from nutrient emissions on one hand, and supporting blue growth in the aquaculture sector on the other, has played out in the Nordic legal systems and industry practice. It does so by reviewing the legal and industrial developments in Sweden, Denmark, Finland and the Åland Islands with a focus on interpretation and application of the common EU regulatory framework, mainly the Water Framework Directive and the ecj Weser ruling, and the response from the aquaculture sector. The study shows that the four studied jurisdictions have taken disparate regulatory approaches in balancing ecological status of waters and blue growth. As a consequence of these legal developments, the aquaculture industry faces difficulty in attaining required permits for their operations in all four jurisdictions and significant uncertainty on how to develop the sector to meet the set growth objectives has arisen.
