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.
This study presents a historical and conceptual reconstruction of nationality law and offers an analysis of the issues involved, now and in the future. The author discusses definitions of nationality and citizenship in international law and in the law of certain regional organisations, in particular the European Union. He investigates whether these definitions have evolved and, if so, how; whether residence has taken on a more prominent role alongside nationality; and whether the EU can be taken as a model for other regional organisations in defining resident status.
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 aim of this Series is to facilitate an exchange of views and opinions among judges, academics, practitioners and students on the increasingly important and complex relations between commercial law and public international law.

The series published an average of 3,5 volumes per year over the last 5 years.

Are states allowed to prohibit the importation of products made by children? Can foreign investors claim compensation when their host state raises the minimum wage? In this book Ruben Zandvliet examines the ways in which international trade and investment law enables and constrains the ability of states to regulate labour. In addition to analysing the interactions between the relevant norms, it explains how linkages between international economic law and labour navigate between two notions: fair competition and fundamental rights. This study is agnostic about which of these objectives ought to shape international law, thus allowing a critical examination of the relevant rules of public international law, as well as legal and economic scholarship.
