The Debate on Imputation in the English Antinomian Controversy (1690–1700) in Its International and Interconfessional Context
According to the apostle Paul, Christ was made sin. What does this mean: can sin be transferred? Was Christ punished? At the end of the 17th century, in the so-called Third Antinomian Controversy English and Dutch Reformed theologians discussed the concept of imputation in its interrelationship with forgiveness, punishment, and justice. This study helps you to understand their complex and fascinating theological and philosophical reflections. Because the same themes had already extensively been discussed during the century before against Socinianism, the antinomian controversy is placed in an interconfessional and international context, highlighting the significance of Socinians and Hugo Grotius.

The New Zealand Yearbook of International Law is an annual, internationally refereed publication whose purpose is to provide a yearly reference for legal materials and critical commentary on issues of international law. The Yearbook also serves as a valuable tool to identify trends, state practice, and policies in the development of international law in New Zealand, the Pacific region, the Southern Ocean, and Antarctica, and to generate scholarship in those fields. In addition to presenting peer-reviewed legal research, the Yearbook contains an annual ‘Year-in-Review’ that covers developments in international law of particular interest to New Zealand, and a dedicated section on the South Pacific.

This Yearbook covers the period 1 January 2022 to 31 December 2022.
An International Law and International Relations Perspective
In this book contributors engage into the theoretical dialogue about the interplay between terrorism and organized crime. Arguing in favor of its existence, the authors of the book seek to define the phenomenon of ‘organized criminal terrorism’ and examine the appropriateness of the international and regional legal frameworks on terrorism and organized crime to address this unitary criminal phenomenon. The volume reveals similarities and differences between terrorism and organized crime that support views in favor of new international legal instruments and those that defend the current approach to combat organized criminal terrorism. Contributors hope that the book will form the basis for a more informed discussion on the issue.
The open access publication of this book has been published with the support of the Swiss National Science Foundation.

International law is increasing in relevance to the topic of secession. This book demonstrates that if a secessionist entity’s effectiveness is achieved in violation of peremptory norms, the emergence of statehood is precluded, thereby challenging a classical view of secession as purely factual and meta-legal. Dr. Júlia Miklasová coins the term “illegal secessionist entity,” demonstrates the pervasive effects of the original illegality on the subsequent relations of such entities (purported diplomatic, treaty, economic relations, acts and laws) and outlines the overlapping regimes of the law of occupation, human rights law and duty of non-recognition. Post-Soviet secessionist entities result from an illegal use of force. They are thus prohibited from becoming States, and further consequences of their illegality apply.
