This course situates international law in its historical time and cultural context in order to view its role in history through a broader lens, across different societies and cultural frameworks.
Changing perceptions of the phenomenon of the Leviathan exemplifies the evolution of international law and the witch hunt which originated in Europe and spread to other continents.
The notions of territoriality and extraterritoriality are discussed in the context of space in postmodern international law. This book will also present the great impact of colonialism on 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.

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.

The Baltic Yearbook of International Law is published under the auspices of the Baltic Editorial Board within the framework of cooperation between the Riga Graduate School of Law and Brill/Nijhoff Publishers. The Yearbook aims to bring to the international debate issues of importance in the Baltic States, providing a forum for views on topical international law themes from Baltic and international scholars. The first volume appeared in 2001 with a symposium on the question of the international legal status of the Baltic States.

The Yearbook contains state practice reports from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and thus serves as an important source of international law unavailable elsewhere.

From time to time the Yearbook offers articles discussing the history of international law and current issues in Eastern Europe and the Russian Federation, thus making regional discourse more accessible to a wider global audience.

Volume 21 is published during Russia’s ongoing war on Ukraine. This war – in terms of its modus operandi and the scale of atrocities committed – is only too familiar to the historical memory of the Baltic nations. This issue therefore includes papers from a Baltic Yearbook online seminar organized on 19 September 2022 on the theme of “Russia’s War in Ukraine and the Baltic States”. The seminar departed from the premise that the war which the Russian Federation is waging against the independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine shares notable parallels with Soviet aggression against the Baltic States of 1939/1940, leading to fifty long years of unlawful occupation. The key question that international lawyers – especially in the Baltic States – are asking is whether international law in 2022, as compared to the inter-war period, is more consolidated and offers legal tools necessary to address such a grave violation of international law as the Russian Federation has been committing against Ukraine. The comparison of ‘then’ and ‘now’ appears to attest in favour of today’s international legal order, with more instruments and greater will to use them to counter particularly grave challenges to the foundational values of that legal order. The perspective from within the Baltic States on aspects of international law relevant to determine Russia’s responsibility for the war against Ukraine is undoubtedly of wider interest.
The Max Planck Yearbook of United Nations Law (UNYB), founded in 1997, appears under the auspices of the Max Planck Foundation for International Peace and the Rule of Law. Volume 26 of the UNYB features a special thematic forum on 'The International Court of Justice at 75: an Assessment'. In light of the recently concluded 75th anniversary of the Court's inaugral sitting, this edition of the UNYB features a curation of contributions that critically engage with and examine the work of the ICJ throughout these years. Additionally, a few select articles related to the general editorial scope of the UNYB (‘The Law and Practice of the United Nations’ or ‘Legal Issues Related to the Goals of the United Nations’) have been featured herein.

By concentrating on issues connected with the UN and its initiatives, the UNYB aims to facilitate an understanding of the changes the UN has been undergoing since its foundation. It also provides a forum in which the potential of international organizations to affect the future course of international law and relations can be examined and assessed. The UNYB addresses both scholars and practitioners, giving them insights into the workings, challenges and evolution of the UN.
