The Iran-United States Claims Tribunal

Controversies, Cases and Contribution

Rahmatullah Khan

The Iran-United States Claims Tribunal is arguably the most significant arbitral institution of the twentieth century. Although the completion of its last few cases could take a long time, the Tribunal's impressive work must be made available now as a guide to the resolution of ongoing disputes and for future tribunals.
The Tribunal has, by this point, disposed of well over 98 percent of its caseload. Little more remains for its participants to learn, but the Tribunal shows no signs of fading away. Both of the two States Parties, for different reasons, see greater advantage in the Tribunal's prolongation than in its elimination.
The authors have succeeded in dealing with all of the most deserving Tribunal subjects. Moreover, their intimate involvement in and knowledge of the Tribunal ensure that their book is a fascinating, important, and indispensable contribution to the literature of International Law. This is a definitive book on a monumental event in the law and in history at the close of a century.
The Iran-United States Claims Tribunal was awarded the ASIL Certificate of Merit.

The European Union's Foreign and Security Policy

A Legal Institutional Perspective

Series:

Susan Wessel

The common foreign and security policy (CFSP) of the European Union and its member states reflects an unprecedented form of international cooperation on the borderline between international law and European Community law. While more 'supranational' European community, CFSP in this book is presented as a form of legal cooperation that is far from informal. The former diplomatic European Political Cooperation has developed into a policy in which the states still play an important role, but where their competences are shared with the international organisation called the European Union. Conclusions on the interpretation of the 'CFSP legal order' and on the legal status of the European Union are based on a thorough analysis of the purposes and scope of CFSP, the decision-making procedures, the nature of the CFSP decisions, the existing supervisory mechanisms and the competences of the European Union. The book addresses the key issues of international institutional law in an original and clarifying manner. This makes the book not only a valuable source for academics working in European Union law and international institutional law in general, but also for practitioners involved in national and European foreign policy making. The book contains an extensive bibliography as well as a list of adopted CFSP decisions.

Collected Writings of Sir Robert Jennings

Foreword by Professor Georges Abi-Saab

Sir Robert Y. Jennings

Too often the doors to a brilliant mind remain locked to outsiders. A lack of desire to share one's range of experience or the inability to clearly and concisely articulate that experience keeps some of the most important ideas and significant knowledge hidden from public view.
The Collected Writings of Sir Robert Jennings represents one of those rare moments when that door is unlocked. Sir Robert Jennings - the universally renowned scholar, professor and judge - not only is willing to share his ideas on a wide spectrum of important issues in international law but also is a master at conveying these ideas clearly, economically, and with a subtlety and precision that makes his work timeless.
This full, important collection represents the whole range of Sir Robert Jennings's intellectual concerns. Its coverage includes: - the General Course he gave at the Hague Academy in 1968, offering insight into his pedagogic style and a taste of his teaching at Cambridge and other institutions; - essays on the ICJ and the judicial function generally; - essays on jurisdictional questions, addressing numerous functional and spatial dimensions of jurisdiction; and - essays that globally evaluate international law and its evolution. As a whole, the Collected Writings of Sir Robert Jennings offers readers a thought-provoking, inspirational picture of international law and its evolution over the critical past years. The work has a 'rare quality . . . there is no belabouring of the obvious, no over-elaboration of details which the reader can work out for himself' (Professor Georges Abi-Saab, from the Foreword). No international law library, institutional or private, should be without this fascinating volume.
