    This book examines to what extent the right of self-defense, as laid down in Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, permits States to launch military operations against other States. In particular, it focuses on the occurrence of an 'armed attack'--the crucial trigger for the activation of this right. In light of the developments since 9/11, the book analyzes relevant physical & verbal customary practice, ranging from the 1974 Definition of Aggression to recent incidents such as the 2001 U.S. intervention in Afghanistan & the 2006 Israeli intervention in Lebanon. The notion of 'armed attack' is examined from a threefold perspective. What acts can be regarded as an 'armed attack'? When can an 'armed attack' be considered to take place? And from whom must an 'armed attack' emanate?

    "A breach of fair and equitable treatment is alleged in almost every investor-state dispute. It has therefore become a controversial norm, which touches many questions at the heart of general international law. Roland Klager sheds light on these controversies by exploring the deeper doctrinal foundations of fair and equitable treatment and reviewing its contentious relationship with the international minimum standard. The norm is also discussed in light of the fragmentation of international law, theoriesof international justice and rational balancing, and the idea of constitutionalism in international law. In this vein, a shift in the way of addressing fair and equitable treatment is proposed by focusing on the process of justificatory reasoning"--

In so doing, he outlines the radical reforms that are needed on an institutional level and within global civil society if we are to realize the dream of a world that is more just, equitable and peaceful.

    "This assessment of progress in Southeast Asia on human rights begins in the wake of the 'Asian values' debate and culminates in the formal regional institutionalisation of the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR). Chapters examine the arduous negotiation of AICHR, the evolving relationship between ASEAN states' and the international human rights system, and the historical and experiential reasons for hesitancy. The text concludes with a discussion of how the evolving right to development impacts upon AICHR and international human rights in general, and how their preference for economic, social and development rights could help ASEAN states shape the debate"--

    This book examines the key motivations for and challenges to greater regional integration in Southeast Asia. It demonstrates how security and economic concerns -domestic, regional and international - have either contributed to, or detracted from, an increased level of unity and cooperation in ASEAN. It also explores how the patterns of interaction and socialization generated by these issues, together with the nature of domestic political systems, have affected the emergence of common values, norms and interests. It covers the full range of issues confronting ASEAN at present, and the full range of ASEAN countries, and discusses both developments in ASEAN to date and also likely future developments.
  • Abhangige Arbeit Und Gemeinsame Zweckverfolgung

    Die Schrift befaßt sich für die Bundesrepublik Deutschland und die Schweiz mit der Abgrenzungsproblematik zwischen Arbeitsrecht und Gesellschaftsrecht oder - anders gewendet - zwischen abhängiger und selbstständiger (unternehmerischer) Beschäftigung. Rechtsprechung und Schrifttum haben für jedes dieser Rechtsgebiete umfängliche Kriterienkataloge erarbeitet, von denen insbesondere der arbeitsrechtliche im Verlauf der vergangenen 15 Jahre vor dem Hintergrund einer anhaltend hohen Arbeitslosenquote und der sich ausbreitenden Globalisierung der Ökonomie an Plausibilität eingebüßt hat. Das vermag schon allein deshalb nicht zu verwundern, weil die rechtsgebietsspezifische Theorienbildung nicht im Hinblick auf die komplementäre Fragestellung des jeweils anderen Rechtsgebiets erfolgt ist und oftmals Kriterien als unterscheidungskräftig benannt werden, die den zu unterscheidenden Beschäftigungsarten gleichermaßen eigen sind.
