Ein globales Netzwerk internationaler und nationaler Gerichte und justizahnlicher Instanzen tragt in zunehmendem Umfang und wechselseitiger Vernetzung zur Auslegung sowie Fortentwicklung des Volkerrechts bei. Neben den im Aufschwung begriffenen IGH sind globale Spezialgerichte getreten: die Tatigkeit von international tatigen Menschenrechtsausschussen und Streitschlichtungsorganen im Handelsrecht nimmt zugleich immer justizformlichere Gestalt an. Auf regionaler Ebene sind EGMR sowie EuGH Speerspitzen einer weltweiten Tendenz zu gerichtlicher Streitklarung, im nationalen Bereich werden samtliche Gerichtsbarkeiten mit Volkerrecht konfrontiert. Klassische zwischenstaatliche Konflikte, Menschenrechte, Volkermord sowie Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit, Handelsstreitigkeiten, Immunitats- sowie Jurisdiktionsfragen sind nur einige der Themen der Volkerrechtsprechung. International findet fast jeder Konflikt inzwischen irgendwo auch sein justizformliches Forum, innerstaatlich ist kein Rechtsgebiet mehr unbeeinflusst von einer sich dynamisch entwickelnden Rechtsprechungspraxis im Volkerrecht. Die Autoren des vorliegenden Bandes widmen sich, ein breites Spektrum internationaler und nationaler Entscheidungsinstanzen berucksichtigend, in 136 Einzelbesprechungen beruhmten, wichtigen und interessanten Entscheidungen. Die Beitrage beleuchten historische sowie juristische Hintergrunde, analysieren Entscheidungsinhalte, beschreiben Folgewirkungen und geben weiterfuhrende Hinweise. Eine allgemeine Einleitung, 5 Einfuhrungen zu zentralen Instanzen volkerrechtlicher Gerichtsbarkeit sowie 16 thematische Einfuhrungen runden dieses Kompendium zur Rechtsprechung im Bereich des Volkerrechts ab.

The field of environmental history emerged just decades ago but has established itself as one of the most innovative and important new approaches to history, one that bridges the human and natural world, the humanities and the sciences. With the current trend towards internationalizing history, environmental history is perhaps the quintessential approach to studying subjects outside the nation-state model, with pollution, global warming, and other issues affecting the earth not stopping at national borders. With 25 essays, this Handbook is global in scope and innovative in organization, looking at the field thematically through such categories as climate, disease, oceans, the body, energy, consumerism, and international relations.

A sound understanding of public international law is indispensable for any lawyer, whether working in an international or domestic context. It is therefore important that students have a thorough theoretical understanding of international law issues, and are able to apply the relevant international legal rules to a given set of facts, so as to arrive at a legally coherent conclusion. This practical aspect of learning international law is often neglected in favour of more theoretical aspects - which is where this book comes in. The book offers a series of hypothetical practical cases in public international law, including some of its specialised branches, such as international human rights law and international criminal law. It challenges students to practise and familiarise themselves with the methodology and to write solutions to practical international legal questions. The book is in two parts: part one contains practical (exam-like) questions, while part two contains the solutions. The practical questions in part one are organised by subject, such as treaty law or state responsibility. One chapter is dedicated to more complex 'interconnected' cases, where students are asked to tackle problems which span multiple potential cases and topics. ENDORSEMENT 'An extremely interesting and innovative text that students studying Public International Law should find invaluable.' Associate Professor Joanne Sellick Associate Dean for Teaching and Learning, University of Plymouth
