From having been a legal discipline with a predominantly national perspective, administrative law has increasingly become influenced and affected by the general trends of globalization in modern society. Globalization in general and Europeanization in particular have resulted in a multitude of economic and social contacts across borders, within and between commercial and personal, as well as public and private spheres. Globalization has thus led to a need to find new and adapted administrative law solutions. This changed legal landscape for administrative law is a reality that nearly all lawyers active within the field of administrative law have to relate to in their work.

In this book we have gathered a number of prominent scholars who analyze the developments of administrative law from their respective perspective. The papers were first presented at a colloquium at the Faculty of Law at Uppsala University in March 2012. The aim of the colloquium was to increase our own understanding of the processes of globalization within administrative law and to learn from each other. By publishing the papers, we hope that the knowledge gained there can be passed on to a wider group of interested scholars and practicing lawyers.

The contributions to this book are divided into three parts; Governance and procedures, Administrative law within and beyond Europe and Theoretical approaches. The book opens with a paper by Lena Marcusson, Professor of Administrative Law, Uppsala University, which also served as the introduction to the colloquium in 2012.
Founded in 1993, the African Yearbook, now published under the auspices of the African Foundation for International Law, is the only scholarly publication devoted exclusively to the study, development, dissemination and wider appreciation of international law in Africa as a whole. Through the scholarly analysis of international legal issues relevant to the African continent, the yearbook also contributes to the acceptance of, and respect for the rule of law in intra-African relations and for principles of international law generally. Its uniqueness, however, goes beyond these factors, for, through its special themes and general articles, the yearbook has succeeded in serving as an intellectual forum where the development of international law is viewed as being integral to Africa's own development.

In addition to scholarly analysis of contemporary legal issues, the Yearbook provides access to documents from African international organizations and regularly publishes resolutions and decisions of regional and sub-regional organizations. Also included in the content are resolutions and decisions of regional and sub-regional organizations as well as the conventions, protocols, and declarations adopted by pan-African agencies.

Through the study and analysis of emerging legal issues of particular reveleance to Africa, such as the creation of viable continental institutions capable of promoting unity and security for the peoples of the continent, the effective protection of human rights, the need for accountability for mass killings and massive violations of the rule of law, the promotion of a rule-based democratic culture, the role of African countries in a globalizing world economy and in international trade relations, the Yearbook strives to be responsive to the intellectual needs of African countries in the area of international law, and to the continuing struggle for creating an environment conducive to the rule of law throughout the continent.

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 in Asian studies.

The 2018 edition of the Yearbook features articles on the practice of Asian states from the perspective of Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL).

Reports of the International Law Association Committee on Baselines under the International Law of the Sea
Baselines under the International Law of the Sea brings together two reports produced by the International Law Association (ILA) Committee on Baselines under the International Law of the Sea between 2008 – 2018. The Sofia Report (2012) is organized around the interpretation of Article 5 of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (LOSC) concerning the normal baseline. The Sydney Report (2018) is organized around a common methodology in assessing Articles 7, 8, 10, 13, 14 and 47 of the LOSC concerning straight baselines, closing lines, and straight archipelagic baselines.
In a political climate which encourages interdependence between States, international law is steadily developing and increasingly becoming a key factor in the organisation of inter-State relations. This concept of interdependence implies a strong commitment by all States to international law and a shared responsibility for its application. Through the ad hoc Committee of Legal Advisers on Public International Law (CAHDI), the Council of Europe contributes to the implementation of public international law and further acts as a catalyst for its development. Indeed, the CAHDI has established itself as an invaluable actor in the development of public international law, functioning notably as the European Observatory of Reservations and Declarations to International Treaties, a unique and flagship function acknowledged today by other regional organisations. The CAHDI also acts as a laboratory and a catalyst for new ideas. This volume, containing thought-provoking essays by former and current Legal Advisers from a wide selection of Council of Europe countries, arose from the conference celebrating the 50th anniversary of the CAHDI meetings and showcases CAHDI's pioneering work.

Dans un contexte politique qui favorise l'interdépendance entre les Etats, le droit international ne cesse de se développer et apparaît comme un élément important qui organise les relations entre ceux-ci. Ce concept d’interdépendance implique un engagement fort de la part de tous les Etats envers le droit international, ainsi qu’une responsabilité partagée pour son application. A travers le Comité ad hoc des Conseillers juridiques sur le droit international public (CAHDI), le Conseil de l’Europe contribue à la mise en œuvre du droit international public et agit comme le catalyseur de son développement. En effet, le CAHDI s’est imposé comme un acteur indispensable pour le développement du droit international public, fonctionnant notamment en tant qu’Observatoire européen des réserves aux traités internationaux, une fonction unique et phare reconnue aujourd’hui par d’autres organisations régionales. Le CAHDI agit également comme un laboratoire et un catalyseur de nouvelles idées.
Ce volume, contenant des essais incitant à la réflexion qui ont été élaborés par d’anciens et actuels Conseillers juridiques d’un vaste éventail de pays du Conseil de l’Europe, est né de la Conférence célébrant le 50ème anniversaire des réunions du CAHDI et illustre le travail de pionnier du CAHDI.
Author: J. Ashley Roach
State practice in the law of the sea has continued to evolve since publication of the 3rd edition of Excessive Maritime Claims in 2012. In this 4th edition, J. Ashley Roach has brought the text up to date, particularly as to the provisions relating to the balance of navigational rights and freedoms with the interests of coastal and island States. Of particular interest are the more detailed explanations of the phrase “freedom of navigation”; the expanded material on baselines and on the practice of archipelagic States, the revisions of the material on the continental shelf, on marine data collection, on submarine cables and pipelines, and US Ocean Policy. A new chapter has been added on islands and other maritime features.

This edition is dedicated to Dr. Robert W. Smith, the premier marine geographer.
