    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?
  • 'Fair and Equitable Treatment' in International Investment Law (Cambridge Studies in International and Comparative Law)

    "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"--

    "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"--
  • 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.
  • Abschied Vom Abstraktions- Und Traditionsprinzip?

    Anders, als in vielen Streitschriften zuvor, wird hier nicht Sinn und erkenntnistheoretischer Vorteil des Abstraktionsprinzips in Frage gestellt. Jedoch führt die im ersten Teil der Arbeit angestellte Analyse des rumänischen Rechts und der Funktionsweise des ihm immanenten Einheitsprinzips zu einem völlig neuen Verständnis des Mobiliarerwerbs in Rechtsordnungen, die, wie die rumänische, den französischen Code civil zum Vorbild haben. Es wird gezeigt, dass die systemischen Wirkungszusammenhänge des Mobiliarerwerbs unter dem Einheitsprinzip in anderer Weise verlaufen, als sie bisher verstanden wurden und deshalb - anders als bisher angenommen - alle Gestaltungen des Mobiliarerwerbs systemisch widerspruchsfrei erfassen. Der darauf aufbauende Rechtsvergleich zeigt, dass die angeblichen Nachteile des - richtig systematisierten - Einheitsprinzips nur vermeintliche sind, der Mobiliarerwerb unter dem Einheitsprinzip vielmehr Vorteile gegenüber dem Abstraktionsprinzip aufweist.

    "Is there still a right to seek asylum in a globalised world? Migration control has increasingly moved to the high seas or the territory of transit and origin countries, and is now commonly outsourced to private actors. Under threat of financial penalties airlines today reject any passenger not in possession of a valid visa, and private contractors are used to run detention centres and operate border crossings. In this volume Thomas Gammeltoft-Hansen examines the impact of these new practices on refugees' access to asylum. A systematic analysis is provided of the reach and limits of international refugee law when migration control is carried out extraterritorially or by non-state actors. State practice from around the globe and case law from all the major human rights institutions are discussed. The arguments are further linked to wider debates in the fields of human rights, general international law and political science"--
