The Peaceful Settlement of International Disputes

The Peaceful Settlement of International Disputes

Author: Yoshifumi (University of Copenhagen) Tanaka Format: Hardback Release Date: 15/06/2019

Addressing not only inter-state dispute settlement but also the settlement of disputes involving non-State actors, The Peaceful Settlement of International Disputes offers a clear and systematic overview of the procedures for dispute settlement in international law. In light of the diversification of dispute settlement procedures, traditional means of international dispute settlement are discussed alongside newly developing fields such as the dispute settlement system under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, the WTO dispute settlement systems, the peaceful settlement of international environmental disputes, intra-state disputes, mixed arbitration, the United Nations Compensation Commission, and the World Bank Inspection Panel. Figures are used throughout the book to help the reader to better understand the procedures and institutions of international dispute settlement, and suggestions for further reading support exploration of relevant issues. Suitable for postgraduate law and international relations students studying dispute settlement in international law and conflict resolution, this book helps students to easily grasp key concepts and issues.

Experiments in International Adjudication Historical Accounts

Experiments in International Adjudication Historical Accounts

Author: Ignacio de la Rasilla Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/03/2019

The history of international adjudication is all too often presented as a triumphalist narrative of normative and institutional progress that casts aside its uncomfortable memories, its darker legacies and its historical failures. In this narrative, the bulk of 'trials' and 'errors' is left in the dark, confined to oblivion or left for erudition to recall as a curiosity. Written by an interdisciplinary group of lawyers, historians and social scientists, this volume relies on the rich and largely unexplored archive of institutional and legal experimentation since the late nineteenth century to shed new light on the history of international adjudication. It combines contextual accounts of failed, or aborted, as well as of 'successful' experiments to clarify our understanding of the past and present of international adjudication.

Cambridge Studies in International and Comparative Law Justification and Excuse in International Law: Concept and Theory of General Defences

Cambridge Studies in International and Comparative Law Justification and Excuse in International Law: Concept and Theory of General Defences

Author: Federica (University of Cambridge) Paddeu Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/02/2019

The defences available to an agent accused of wrongdoing can be considered as justifications (which render acts lawful) or excuses (which shield the agent from the legal consequences of the wrongful act). This distinction is familiar to many domestic legal systems, and tracks analogous notions in moral philosophy and ordinary language. Nevertheless, it remains contested in some domestic jurisdictions where it is often argued that the distinction is purely theoretical and has no consequences in practice. In international law too the distinction has been fraught with controversy, though there are increasing calls for its recognition. This book is the first to comprehensively and thoroughly examine the distinction and its relevance to the international legal order. Combining an analysis of state practice, and historical, doctrinal and theoretical developments, the book shows that the distinction is not only possible in international law but that it is also one that would have important practical implications.

Globalisation and Governance International Problems, European Solutions

Globalisation and Governance International Problems, European Solutions

Author: Robert (University of Durham) Schutze Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/09/2018

While it might have been viable for states to isolate themselves from international politics in the nineteenth century, the intensity of economic and social globalisation in the twenty-first century has made this impossible. The contemporary world is an international world - a world of collective security systems and collective trade agreements. What does this mean for the sovereign state and 'its' international legal order? Two alternative approaches to the problem of 'governance' in the era of globalisation have developed in the twentieth century: universal internationalism and regional supranationalism. The first approaches collective action problems from the perspective of the 'sovereign equality' of all States. A second approach to transnational 'governance' has tried to re-build majoritarian governmental structures at the regional scale. This collection of essays wishes to analyse - and contrast - the two types of normative and decisional answers that have emerged as responses to the 'international' problems within our globalised world.

International Dispute Resolution Selected Issues in International Litigation and Arbitration

International Dispute Resolution Selected Issues in International Litigation and Arbitration

Author: Vesna Lazic Format: Hardback Release Date: 06/08/2018

The contributions in this book cover a wide range of topics within modern disputeresolution, which can be summarised as follows: harmonisation, enforcement andalternative dispute resolution. In particular, it looks into the impact of harmonisedEU law on national rules of civil procedure and addresses the lack of harmonisationin the US regarding the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. Furthermore,the law on enforcement is examined, not only by focusing on US law, but also onhow to attach assets in order to enforce a judgment. Finally, it addresses certain typesof alternative dispute resolution. In addition, the book looks into the systems andcultures of dispute resolution in several regions of the world, such as the EU, the US andChina, that have a high impact on globalisation. Hence, the book is diverse in the senseof dealing with multiple issues in the field of modern dispute resolution. The book offers explorations of the impact of international rules and EU law on domesticcivil procedure, through case studies from, among others, the US, China, Belgium andthe Netherlands. The relevance of EU law for the national debate and its impact on theregulation of civil procedure is also considered. Furthermore, several contributions discussthe necessity and possibility of harmonisation in the emergency arbitrator mechanisms inthe EU. The harmonisation of private international law rules within the EU, particularlythose of a procedural nature, is juxtaposed to the lack thereof in the US. Also, the bookoffers an overview of the current dispute settlement mechanisms in China. The publication is primarily meant for legal academics in private international law andcivil procedure. It will also prove useful to practitioners regularly engaged in cross-borderdispute resolution and will be of added value to advanced students, as well as to those withan interest in international litigation and more generally in the area of dispute resolution. Vesna Lazic is Senior Researcher at the T.M.C. Asser Institute, Associate Professor ofPrivate Law at Utrecht University and Professor of European Civil Procedure at theUniversity of Rijeka. Steven Stuij is an expert in Private International Law and a PhD Candidate/GuestResearcher at the Erasmus School of Law, Rotterdam. Ton Jongbloed is Guest Editor on this volume.

Combining Mediation and Arbitration in International Commercial Dispute Resolution

Combining Mediation and Arbitration in International Commercial Dispute Resolution

Author: Dilyara Nigmatullina Format: Hardback Release Date: 09/07/2018

Securing fast, inexpensive, and enforceable redress is vital for the development of international commerce. In a changing international commercial dispute resolution landscape, the combined use of mediation and arbitration has emerged as a dispute resolution approach which offers these benefits. However, to date there has been little agreement on several aspects of the combined use of processes, which the literature often explains by reference to the practitioner's legal culture, and there is debate as to how appropriate it is for the same neutral to conduct both mediation and arbitration. Identifying the main ways of addressing concerns associated with the same neutral conducting both mediation and arbitration (same neutral (arb)-med-arb), this book examines how effectively these methods achieve the goal of fast, inexpensive, and enforceable dispute resolution, evaluating to what extent the perception and use of the same neutral (arb)-med-arb depends on the practitioner's legal culture, arguing that this is not a `one-size-fits-all' process. Presenting an empirical study of the combined use of mediation and arbitration in international commercial dispute resolution, this book synthesises existing ways of addressing concerns associated with the same neutral (arb)-med-arb to provide recommendations on how to enhance the use of combinations in the future.

International Dispute Resolution and the Public Policy Exception

International Dispute Resolution and the Public Policy Exception

Author: Farshad Ghodoosi Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/06/2018

Despite the unprecedented growth of arbitration and other means of ADR in treaties and transnational contracts in recent years, there remains no clearly defined mechanism for control of the system. One of the oldest yet largely marginalized concepts in law is the public policy exception. This doctrine grants discretion to courts to set aside private legal arrangements, including arbitration, which might be considered harmful to the public . The exceptional and vague nature of the doctrine, along with the strong push of actors in dispute resolution, has transformed it, in certain jurisdictions, to a toothless doctrine. At the international level, the notion of transnational public policy has been devised in order to capture norms that are truly transnational and amenable for application in cross-border litigations. Yet, despite the importance of this discussion-a safety valve and a control mechanism for today's international and domestic international dispute resolution- no major study has ventured to review and analyze it. This book provides a historical, theoretical and practical background on public policy in dispute resolution with a focus on cross-border and transnational disputes. Farshad Ghodoosi argues that courts should adopt a more systemic approach to public policy while rejecting notions such as transnational public policy, which limits the application of those norms with mandatory nature. Contrary to the current trend, the book invites the reader to re-conceptualize the role of public policy, and transnational dispute resolution, in order to have more sustainable, fair and efficient mechanisms for resolving disputes outside of national courts. The book sheds light on one of the most important yet often-neglected control mechanisms of today's international dispute resolution and will be of particular interest to students and academics in the fields of International Investment Law, International Trade Law, Business and Economics.

Alternative Dispute Resolution The Indian Perspective

Alternative Dispute Resolution The Indian Perspective

Author: Shashank (Partner, Partner, Advani and Company, New Delhi) Garg Format: Hardback Release Date: 24/05/2018

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR), as a mechanism to resolve disputes, has gained wide acceptance in India. This is primarily because the traditional adversarial system of dispensing justice is dilatory, expensive, and, many a time, ineffective. The recent spurt in India's economic development coupled with the renewed confidence of foreign investors to invest in India has also made it imperative that India provides a swifter justice delivery system to resolve commercial disputes. The volume examines some of the important aspects of dispute resolution being practiced in India. More than twenty national and international experts from various fields within the domain of dispute resolution have come together to answer some of the most complex issues and shed light on the usage of the best practices of dispute resolution in India. The work aims to enhance the understanding of the legal issues related to dispute resolution, and provides an updated account of law incorporating the recent Arbitration and Conciliation (Amendment) Act, 2015.

Regional Economic Integration and Dispute Settlement in East Asia The Evolving Legal Framework

Regional Economic Integration and Dispute Settlement in East Asia The Evolving Legal Framework

Author: Anna G. Tevini Format: Hardback Release Date: 08/02/2018

The accession of the People's Republic of China to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001 significantly transformed the global economy both de facto and de jure. At the regional level, China's WTO accession served as an important catalyst for the establishment of Regional Trade Agreements (RTAs) in East Asia. This was a novel development for the region, since East Asian States had previously followed a largely informal, market-driven approach to regional economic integration. By contrast, rules-based economic integration involving East Asian States was traditionally limited to multilateral integration under the GATT/WTO framework. This book systematically analyses and explains the development, nature and challenges of rules-based regional economic integration in East Asia with particular attention to the region's first four RTAs. While also addressing the socio-economic, historical and political factors influencing the development of RTAs in East Asia, the book focuses on the legal institutions governing economic integration in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), as well as under the ASEAN-China Comprehensive Economic Co-Operation Agreement (ACFTA), the Japan-Singapore New Age Economic Partnership Agreement (JSEPA), and the Mainland China-Hong Kong Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement (CEPA). The book provides a systematic, comparative account of the scope, depth and (hard law versus soft law) quality of rules-based economic integration achieved under these four RTAs in the areas of trade in goods and services, investment liberalisation and protection, labour mobility, and dispute settlement.
