Edited by Pavel Šturma

The Rome Statute of the ICC at its Twentieth Anniversary (Achievements and Perspectives) is an edited book comprising of 13 chapters written by contributors to a conference dedicated to discuss the development, achievements and possible future evolution of the Rome Statute and international criminal law. The authors include academics from various legal systems, practitioners from the ICC and the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, attorneys and other law experts.

The International Criminal Court is the first universal international criminal tribunal. Though quite new, as the Rome Statute was adopted 20 years ago (1998) and only 16 years have passed since its entry into force, it has already developed interesting case-law and continues to elaborate on both substantive and procedural international criminal law.

Contributors are Ivana Hrdličková, Claus Kreß, Tamás Lattmann, Jan Lhotský, Milan Lipovský, Iryna Marchuk, Josef Mrázek, Anna Richterová, Simon De Smet, Ondřej Svaček, Pavel Šturma, Kateřina Uhlířová, Kristýna Urbanová, Aloka Wanigasuriya.

Regulating International Sport

Power, Authority and Legitimacy

Lloyd Freeburn

In a fresh and original account, Lloyd Freeburn challenges the conventional conception of contracts as the consent-based legal foundation of international sports law. The prevailing legal orthodoxy is shown to be untenable, failing to explain or justify international sports governing bodies’ regulatory power or their control over the livelihoods and liberty of participants in sport. The non-consensual jurisdiction of the Court of Arbitration for Sport is similarly tainted. But this significant challenge is not made simply to undermine international sport’s regulatory regime. A sound legal foundation for regulatory authority in sport is both desirable and necessary. Consequently, effective reform is urgently required to support the regime’s legality and to give it legitimacy by resolving the regime’s democratic deficit.

What Is Market Manipulation?

An Analysis of the Concept in a European and Nordic Context

Series:

Andri Fannar Bergþórsson

The Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) entered into force in 2016 within the European Union, which introduced a fully harmonized ban on market manipulation. Even though the regulation is quite detailed, the terms used to define market manipulation are relatively vague and open-ended. In What Is market manipulation? Dr. Andri Fannar Bergþórsson offers unique insight to and an interpretation of the concept of market manipulation, which includes an analysis of case law from the Nordic countries. The aim of the book is to clarify the concept as described in MAR and to provide readers some guidelines to distinguish between lawful behaviour and market manipulation (the unlawful behaviour). Bergþórsson convincingly argues that misinformation is an essential element of all forms of market manipulation.

La protection internationale du patrimoine culturel de la mer

Les compétences de l’État sur les biens culturels submerges

Series:

Marine They

Since the 1980’s, States have been increasingly concerned with ensuring appropriate protection of underwater cultural heritage, endangered by anthropogenic activities reaching ever deeper ocean waters. The localisation of certain sites in the high seas has raised jurisdictional claims, sometimes grounded on an extension of connected factors (spatial and “extra-spatial”) already recognized in general international law and in the law of the sea, while other cases are based on hitherto purely factual links. But conventional and customary rules remain insufficient, either for a real delimitation of state’s competences or for regulating the exercise of jurisdiction once authorized in a certain sphere. In La protection internationale du patrimoine culturel de la mer, Marine They provides a details analysis of these critical issues.

Depuis les années 1980, les États se montrent de plus en plus soucieux d’assurer une protection adéquate au patrimoine culturel submergé en mer, menacé par les activités anthropiques jusque dans les grands fonds marins. La localisation de certains sites en haute mer a fait naître des revendications de compétence tantôt fondées sur l’extension des rattachements légaux (spatiaux et « extra-spatiaux ») reconnus par le droit international général et par le droit de la mer, tantôt sur des facteurs de rattachement jusqu’ici purement factuels. Insuffisantes aux fins de procéder à une véritable délimitation des compétences en la matière, les règles conventionnelles et coutumières le sont tout autant lorsqu’il s’agit d’encadrer l’exercice des fonctions étatiques dans une sphère de compétence déjà reconnue.

Tomme Rosanne Young and Morten Walløe Tvedt

In Drafting Successful Access and Benefit-sharing Contracts, Young and Tvedt offer an insightful and profound analysis of how ABS can be made truly functional through the use of legally binding and enforceable contracts. Contracts are foreseen as the main legal tool for making access and benefit sharing work, thus realizing the third objective of the Convention on Biological Diversity. Many years have gone by since contracts were first suggested as a solution to resolve the challenges of ABS, but so far few successful benefit-sharing cases have been presented. This volume explores the possibilities and limits of contract law which both practitioners and stakeholders need in order for ABS contracts to become an effective solution for sustainable use of biological diversity.

With the bilingual volume International Investment Law in Latin America: Problems and Prospects, Attila Tanzi, Alessandra Asteriti, Rodrigo Polanco Lazo and Paolo Turrini provide a regional perspective on one of the liveliest branches of international law by situating it in one of the most dynamic areas of the world.

Latin America has always had an ambivalent relationship with international investment law and, more recently, it has been the home of harsh and resolute criticisms, questioning the ultimate legitimacy of the regime. By bringing together distinguished scholars of this legal field, the volume analyses ongoing trends and draws lessons from the Continent’s past experiences while identifying possible solutions to the important challenges it faces.

Towards a New CISG

The Prospective on the International Sale of Goods and Services

Leandro Tripodi

In Towards a New CISG, Leandro Tripodi discusses the aging and need for renovation of the 1980 Vienna Sales Convention. Changes in global political circumstances and to the economy of international sales of goods have rendered the 1980 CISG a dated legal instrument. Its recognized flexibility is not sufficient to cope with past and, especially, with future changes brought about by the introduction of new technologies affecting all kinds of goods subject to trade.

In light of the challenges posed by 21st-century commerce, Dr. Tripodi proposes the adoption of a Convention on the International Sale of Goods and Services (CISGS). The idea of a new convention is based on the following facts: 1) goods and services are no longer as distinguishable as they were in 1980; 2) sales of goods and sales (i.e., the provision) of services are not as easy to apportion as the CISG supposes and can hardly continue to be treated separately by the legal sources of international trade.

Today, consent is a fundamental concept in the European legal framework on data protection. The analysis of the historical and theoretical context carried out in this book reveals that consent was not an intrinsic notion in the birth of data protection. The concept of consent was included in data protection legislation in order to enhance the role of the data subject in the data protection arena, and to allow the data subject to have more control over the collection and processing of his/her personal information. This book examines the concept of consent and its requirements in the Data Protection Directive, taking into account contemporary considerations on bioethics and medical ethics, as well as recent developments in the framework of the review of the Directive. It further studies issues of consent in electronic communications, carrying out an analysis of the consent-related provisions of the ePrivacy Directive.

Crime, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice in Europe

A Collection in Honour of Prof. em. dr. dr. h.c. Cyrille Fijnaut

Edited by Hans-Jörg Albrecht and André Klip

This unique collection of essays celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the seminal journal the European Journal of Crime, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice, as well as the outstanding and uninterrupted work over that period of its founding Editor-in-Chief, Professor Cyrille Fijnaut. The volume consists of a selection of some of the most ground-breaking articles published over the past twenty years, covering the three areas of focus of the journal: problems of crime, developments in criminal law and changes in criminal justice. It thus explores such diverse issues as the problems of crime in Central and Eastern Europe after the disappearance of the Soviet Union and the collapse of Yugoslavia; the allocation of criminal law power in the European Union; police cooperation in the border areas of the Member States; the criminalization of white collar crime; the establishment of European police services and of a European Public Prosecutor’s Office; new forms of criminal justice cooperation between the Member States; and many others. The journal's unique multidisciplinary approach and its commitment to offer insights from a wide variety of European countries and language areas ensure that a varied range of perspectives are offered on the topics discussed. The result is an enlightening and highly readable anthology, shedding light on the extraordinary developments that have taken place in the area of crime and punishment in Europe.
