What are the legal consequences of the political phenomenon of human rights backlash? After providing a novel definition of the phenomenon, Sanja Dragic explores some of the rules generated as a reaction to the backlash—“the post-backlash human rights law”. Three case studies meticulously analyze the legal conversations between the opposing states and the global human rights community before the new rules appeared on the international scene. The picture that emerges from these insights is of an unequal relationship between the opposing sides and the post-backlash law which sustains the afflicted structure.
Transport, Trade and Environment in Perspective
Regulation of Risk provides a comprehensive insight into regulation of risk in transport, trade and environment. Contributions provide national, regional and international perspectives on pressing questions: How is risk conceived in light of novel technological deployment, climate change, political upheaval, evolving geopolitics, and the COVID-19 pandemic? What legal tools such as contractual frameworks and governance structures are available to manage the changing landscape of risk? This book highlights the importance of dialogue and collaborative decision-making on risk between policymakers, institutions, societal stakeholders and the scientific community.
With little warning, COVID-19 quickly escalated into a generational crisis, creating sustained havoc seen perhaps only in past cases of war, attack, and natural disasters. In the bedlam of the early months, health, science, political, and economic communities were hit with sudden force, required to quickly shift and rearrange the normal order of work. In arbitration, leaders took imperfect information to make dramatic decisions. In process and procedure, arbitral institutions, arbitrators, legal counsel, and clients were swept into this turmoil. In some cases, bold initiatives, still in design and testing, were quickly put into service, upsetting norms and traditions and the very notions of traditional process.
The Impact of COVID on International Disputes includes contributions from legal practitioners and academics, takes a fresh look at issues addressed in international arbitration during the COVID-19 pandemic, gathering best practices, additional perspective and predictions based on current practices that will help parties, legal counsel and arbitrators in the future.
The open access publication of this book has been published with the support of the Swiss National Science Foundation.

Climate change is forcing us to consider the right of people to leave their disappearing homelands, and the shape this right should take. Climate Change, Disasters and People on the Move proposes international protection as a solution with three pillars: granting protection against return to the country of origin (non-refoulement); preventing future displacement; and facilitating safe, orderly, and regular migration in the context of disasters and climate change. Dr. Aylin Yildiz Noorda uses the theories of common concern of humankind and community interests to operationalise her proposal, providing a blueprint for future claims.

"Brill Research Perspectives in International Law" is an international, peer-reviewed book series publishing short monographs in public and private international law. The series is comprised of nine subseries including: international investment law and arbitration, banking and securities law, comparative discrimination law, family law, law and religion, law of the sea, legal theory, transnational crime and international water law.
The Brill Research Perspectives in International Water Law is a unique reference publication for research output on shared freshwater resources. Population growth, economic activities, environmental degradation, and climate change have exacerbated competition and ignited disputes over water resources (both surface water and groundwater) shared by two or more states. The entry into force of the United Nations Watercourses Convention has refocused the attention of the world community on shared water resources and underscored the pressing need for their equitable and sustainable sharing, inclusive and proper management, and environmental protection. Each contribution comprises a single, uniquely focused monograph that explores these aspects and addresses international, regional, and bilateral agreements and arrangements as well as thematic matters related to shared water resources. The series target contributors and readers include international water law professors, researchers, practitioners, and graduate and undergraduate students. The Brill Research Perspectives in International Water Law started publication in 2016. Each monograph of the Series has been published both: as an issue of the journal (Journal Series), as well as a free-standing monograph (Monograph Series). As of 2021, publication will continue only with the Monograph Series. These monographs will continue to be numbered to reflect the chronological order and year of publication.
