In recent years the resort to trade restrictions for purposes of environmental policy has given rise to an increasing number of international dispute settlement proceedings, both on the world-wide level in the context of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade and the newly established World Trade Organisation, and on the regional level in the European Community and among the member countries of the North American Free Trade Agreement.
The present work discusses the evolution of trade law in the global and regional context and analyzes and compares the different world-wide and regional approaches to the various interface problems of trade and environmental policies. The book includes in an annex a selection of the most important provisions, reports and court cases.

This book confronts the letter and spirit of international law, its norms and institutions, as well as their interaction with the life of peoples, nations and States in all their cultural diversity.
The exercise consists of de-compartmentalising the analysis of international law, which today concerns all aspects of daily life, and nourishing this analysis with human realities.
International law is presented both as a method and as a message that is rooted in universal values.
Beyond the formal aspects of this discipline, this book seeks to grasp the fundamental meaning of international law in order to assess its relevance and its limitations.
This book focuses on the issues that are disrupting international law today rather than on the well-established aspects of this field.
A Thematic Guide
As the ever increasing number of Security Council resolutions and statements is nowadays easily available through the UN home page, this booklet will guide you thematically through these documents without the texts of the resolutions and statements being reproduced.
This work contains the essential tools, presented in a chronological order, and classified on a topic basis to help you find and compare the English and French texts electronically.
Part I contains matters concerning the maintenance of international peace and security; Part II contains other matters considered by the Security Council. The next division is a geographical one, each geographical region being subdivided into numbered topics. The corpus of this Thematic Guide consists of an analytical table of resolutions, statements and letters. Additional tools are made available in the annexes: a chronological list and the composition of the Security Council (1946-2000).
This booklet is a sequence to the previous two editions by Karel Wellens of Resolutions and Statements of the United Nations Security Council: A Thematic Guide.
The aim of this book is to empower individuals with the knowledge of how to use the UN Human Rights Treaty System to complain to an impartial international body about violations of their rights by states. Although this right is limited to claims against states that voluntarily permit complaints to be made against them, the UN human rights treaty system now applies to one-quarter of the world's population.

The text provides a clear explanation of the complexities of the UN human rights treaty system and the methodology to employ its procedures to successfully navigate a claim through its proper course.

Key beneficiaries of the information presented in this book will be the individual victims of human rights abuses for whose protection the UN human rights treaty system was created. Human rights organizations, advocacy groups, government agencies, and all practitioners working to confront the widespread incidents of human rights violations around the world will find this volume a useful ally in providing the practical knowledge and tools needed in their common struggle.

State Practice and Attitudes
The way in which 'legal' culture has been defined in the past has limited comparative processes to law itself. The author proposes a new term, 'juriculture', defined as 'the axiological and behavioural formula which pertains to the law.' This new definition provides a comparative tool which focuses on ontological and epistemological bases of law and concomitant legal theories which are distilled from these philosophical bases, in addition to primary and secondary rules, and written laws. This book tackles the crucial issue of how divergent individual, State, and Regional cultures impact the international legal system in the law and State practice vis-à-vis treaty interpretation and reservations.
An empirical analysis of cases in the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal and six human rights' treaties demonstrate that beyond weak juricultural pluralism, which the international legal system provides for, there is also strong juricultural pluralism, which is not envisaged by the system. This highlights the tension between universality and diversity in both primary and secondary rules, and international law itself. This book is a must for those interested in human rights, treaty law, culture, and legal theory.
'It is very much to Dr. Bunn-Livingstone's credit that she has both seen this crucial problem of modern international treaty law and has set about studying it and dissecting its implications for practice, and the ways in which a degree of legal pluralism in both its weak and strong forms are present in the current international legal system. It is not a task which many international lawyers have shown much appetite to tackle. But that renders this contribution to our knowledge the more important.'
