Austrian Review of International and European Law, Volume 10 (2005)


Editor: Gerhard Loibl
The Austrian Review of International and European Law is an annual publication that provides a scholarly forum for the discussion of issues of international and European law, with emphasis on topics of special interest for Austria. Each volume contains longer analytical articles that cover theoretical as well as practical questions in all areas of international and European law, and a section dealing with current developments and emerging tendencies in the field. The Review also offers a documentary part that makes accessible to the interested reader selected documents not or not easily available elsewhere. An important integral element of the Review is its comprehensive digest of Austrian practice in international law, encompassing judicial decisions, executive as well as parliamentary documents relating to international law. The concluding section of the Review contains longer book reviews, shorter book notes and a selective bibliography on international investment law prepared by the library of the Peace Palace in The Hague.
