Situating the Right to Citizenship within International and Regional Human Rights Law
This book offers a comprehensive analysis of the right to citizenship in international and regional human rights law. It critically reflects on the limitations of state sovereignty in nationality matters and situates the right to citizenship within the existing human rights framework. It identifies the scope and content of the right to citizenship by looking not only at statelessness, deprivation of citizenship or dual citizenship, but more broadly at acquisition, loss and enjoyment of citizenship in a migration context. Exploring the intersection of international migration, human rights law and belonging, the book provides a timely argument for recognizing a right to the citizenship of a specific state on the basis of one’s effective connections to that state according to the principle of jus nexi.

Increasing legal integration and interdependency places comparative studies at the heart of legal analysis. Research identifying the converging elements and principles in view of a common legal culture of diversity is necessary. This is particularly true for its territorial and socio-cultural dimensions as these regard the organization of living-together.
Regarding territorial diversity, the interaction of multiple levels of government in addressing complex governance issues and its regulation is of utmost interest. Comparative federal and autonomy studies shall explore theoretical perspectives and foundations, as well as specific policy areas, exploring in depth pluralistic governance and decision-making. Social and cultural diversity implies a modern understanding of the accommodation of multiple groups’ claims sharing the same territory. Going beyond traditional studies on minorities and their rights, new challenges in the accommodation of differences have to be addressed, including the accommodation of non-traditional forms of diversity. Moreover, often the same instruments can be used for the management of territorial as well as for social and cultural diversities. While privileging a comparative constitutional approach, the series faces new methodological demands and includes trans-disciplinary studies in order to meet the contemporary challenge of diversity in an integrated legal space, in Europe and beyond.

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.

The Annotated Digest of the International Criminal Court is an annual or biennial series, which compiles a selection of the most significant legal findings rendered in public decisions of the International Criminal Court. It is devised, first and foremost, as a reference tool for academics and practitioners of international criminal law to enable efficient and thorough research of ICC jurisprudence.

Abstracts of the legal findings are selected based on the following criteria:
1) clarification or interpretation of a rule or a point of law;
2) application of a specific rule as applied by a Chamber; or
3) findings or rulings which are otherwise meaningful with respect to international justice, human rights, international humanitarian law.

Each abstract is inserted after the article(s) of the Statute, Rules of Procedure and Evidence and Regulations of the Court to which it corresponds, together with a short description or summary of its relevance. This quick reference system makes it easy to refer to other decisions quoted elsewhere in the Digest.

The series published one volume over the last 5 years.

It is an annual publication containing contributions on topical issues in international law and related fields that are relevant to Baltic affairs and beyond. Each Yearbook focuses on a theme with particular importance to the development of international law. The Yearbook serves as an important source of information not available elsewhere on the practices of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in international law.
Despite a clear Baltic ownership, the Yearbook aims at contributing to the development of thought, standard-setting and relevant practices throughout the world. The topical coverage has included the questions surrounding the claims of the Baltic States to their State continuity in international law; related issues of State responsibility; various challenges in international human rights law with focus on bioethics and human rights; and the enlargement of the European Union.
