This challenging volume contains articles by a wide variety of well-known scholars and practitioners, and deals with human rights, international humanitarian law, international criminal law and humanitarian assistance, as well as other areas of international law relating to the protection of humanity. These are topics to which Flavia Lattanzi, in whose honour the volume is being published, has made an outstanding contribution and to which she has given her determined and unrelenting professional and personal commitment. As a former Professor at the Universities of Pisa, Sassari, Teramo and Roma Tre and as Judge ad litem at the International Tribunal for Rwanda and the International Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, she has adhered constantly to a number of important principles, as reflected in the research contained in this volume. They include the firm conviction that respect for human rights is an indispensable precondition for durable peace; the notion that grave breaches of human rights, including the refusal to provide assistance to populations in distress, can imply a threat to international peace and security; and that guarantees against human rights violations include the question of the punishment of core crimes under International Law.

Niklas Luhmann wrote a number of works which have decisively shaped the recent development of legal science as a theoretical discipline. Some basic elements of his theory have been widely appropriated by other legal theorists, such that it is difficult to imagine contemporary reflection in legal theory, and above all legal sociology, without Luhmann. This collection brings together the most important canonical and cutting-edge papers on Luhmann's legal thought. It is introduced in a comprehensive editorial piece by the editor which locates the articles in context and explores the issues and topics at hand.

L?action humanitaire internationale qui se mobilise à propos des grandes catastrophes naturelles ou des confl its internationaux et non internationaux fait tous les jours la une de l?actualité internationale dans les médias. L?opinion publique est fortement sensibilisée à ces questions. 0D?une manière générale, l?action humanitaire se déploie dans l?urgence et doit gérer des situations d?urgence. De nombreux problèmes pratiques se posent : problèmes de logistique, de coordination de l?action des divers intervenants, d?accès aux victimes, de l?identification des besoins des destinataires, de la réponse adéquate à fournir, etc. Ceux-ci soulèvent des enjeux politiques souvent très délicats. 0Si les spécialistes de l?action humanitaire sont de plus en plus entraînés pour régler ce genre de difficultés, le droit et les juristes sont mal équipés pour cela. Une réflexion s?imposait dès lors de la part des différents acteurs de cette action humanitaire mais aussi des universitaires. Cet ouvrage rassemble ainsi des témoignages de terrain et des réponses à ces problèmes très concrets. Il a pour objectif de déterminer si, entre la pratique et le droit, il existe une place pour le développement d?une nouvelle branche du droit, celle du droit de l?action humanitaire. 0Sont successivement abordées les sources et la codification de ce droit de l?action humanitaire ainsi que la mise en oeuvre de celui-ci par les acteurs intergouvernementaux ? O.N.U. et institutions financières ? et non gouvernementaux ? O.N.G. et C.I.C.R. 0Cet ouvrage ne concerne pas uniquement les universitaires et les spécialistes ; il a pour ambition de s?adresser tant aux initiés qu?aux non-initiés et plus généralement à tous ceux que préoccupe le développement de l?action humanitaire.

This volume of Annotated Legal Documents on Islam in Europe covers France and consists of an annotated collection of legal documents affecting the status of Islam and Muslims. The legal texts are published in the original French language while the annotations and supporting material are in English.

Each legal text is preceded by an introduction describing the historical, political and legal circumstances of its adoption, plus a short paragraph summarising its content. The focus of the collection is on the religious dimensions of being Muslim in Europe, i.e. on individuals' access to practise their religious obligations and on the ability to organise and manifest their religious life.

In this commentary, Aoife Daly provides analysis of Article 15 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child - the right of children to freedom of association and assembly. Relevant international law text and case law are examined, but this commenary goes beyond this to reconceptualise Article 15. The right is applied to themes as varied as association with family and friends, political demonstrations, and the unionisation of working children, with the special position of children to the forefront of the analysis. Possibilities for progressing the right through UN mechanisms, courts and other arenas are considered. In doing so, this book pushes traditional boundaries to and understandings of association and assembly, drawing-out particularly child-specific elements of this crucial right.

In a political climate which encourages interdependence between States, international law is steadily developing and increasingly becoming a key factor in the organisation of inter-State relations. This concept of interdependence implies a strong commitment by all States to international law and a shared responsibility for its application. Through the ad hoc Committee of Legal Advisers on Public International Law (CAHDI), the Council of Europe contributes to the implementation of public international law and further acts as a catalyst for its development. Indeed, the CAHDI has established itself as an invaluable actor in the development of public international law, functioning notably as the European Observatory of Reservations to International Treaties, a unique and flagship function acknowledged today by other regional organisations. The CAHDI also acts as a laboratory and a catalyst for new ideas. This volume, containing thought-provoking essays by former and current Legal Advisers from a wide selection of Council of Europe countries, arose from the conference celebrating the 50th anniversary of the CAHDI meetings and showcases CAHDI's pioneering work. Dans un contexte politique qui favorise l'interdependance entre les Etats, le droit international ne cesse de se developper et apparait comme un element important qui organise les relations entre ceux-ci. Ce concept d'interdependance implique un engagement fort de la part de tous les Etats envers le droit international, ainsi qu'une responsabilite partagee pour son application. A travers le Comite ad hoc des Conseillers juridiques sur le droit international public (CAHDI), le Conseil de l'Europe contribue a la mise en /uvre du droit international public et agit comme le catalyseur de son developpement. En effet, le CAHDI s'est impose comme un acteur indispensable pour le developpement du droit international public, fonctionnant notamment en tant qu'Observatoire europeen des reserves aux traites internationaux, une fonction unique et phare reconnue aujourd'hui par d'autres organisations regionales. Le CAHDI agit egalement comme un laboratoire et un catalyseur de nouvelles idees. Ce volume, contenant des essais incitant a la reflexion qui ont ete elabores par d'anciens et actuels Conseillers juridiques d'un vaste eventail de pays du Conseil de l'Europe, est ne de la Conference celebrant le 50eme anniversaire des reunions du CAHDI et illustre le travail de pionnier du CAHDI.

Le contrôle de la constitutionnalité des lois est un élément essentiel de l?État de droit. En exécution de l?article 142 de la Constitution, le législateur spécial a confié ce contrôle à une cour dont la composition révèle un lien fort avec nos assemblées législatives. 00L?objectif de cet ouvrage est de faire le point sur le fonctionnement de la Cour constitutionnelle et d?analyser ses grands arrêts dans diverses branches du droit. 0Une première contribution retrace l?évolution de la Cour et examine les conséquences de la sixième réforme de l?État sur celle-ci. L?héritage du célèbre arrêt Marckx de la Cour européenne des droits de l?homme est ensuite présenté et illustré par l?analyse de la jurisprudence constitutionnelle relative à quelques droits fondamentaux exemplatifs (le droit au respect de la vie privée et familiale, le droit de propriété, la liberté de religion, etc.). 00Cette jurisprudence est enfin analysée dans quatre domaines, retenus parmi toutes les branches du droit. Sont ainsi traités, au travers du prisme constitutionnel : 0-0le droit du travail, 0-0le droit des régimes matrimoniaux, 0-0le droit fiscal, 0-0la procédure pénale. 00Cet ouvrage est destiné à tous les théoriciens et les praticiens du droit qui trouveront ici les clés leur permettant de comprendre le cadre juridique et constitutionnel dans lequel s?épanouissent les matières qu?ils pratiquent au quotidien.

This volume analyses the legal grounds, premises and extent of pecuniary compensation for violations of human rights in national legal systems. The scope of comparison includes liability regimes in general and in detail, the correlation between pecuniary remedies available under international law and under domestic law, and special (alternative) compensation systems. All sources of human rights violations are embraced, including historical injustices and systematical and gross violations. The book is a collection of nineteen contributions written by public international law, international human rights and private law experts, covering fifteen European jurisdictions (including Central and Eastern Europe), the United States, Israel and EU law. The contributions, initially prepared for the 19th International Congress of Comparative law in Vienna (2014), present the latest developments in legislation, scholarship and case-law concerning domestic causes of action in cases of human rights abuses. The book concludes with a comparative report which assesses the developments in tort law and public liability law, the role of the constitutionalisation of the right to damages as well as the court practice related to the process of enforcement of human rights through monetary remedies. This country-by-country comparison allows to consider whether the value of protection of human rights as expressed in international treaties, ius cogens and in national constitutional laws justifies the conclusion that the interests at stake should enjoy protection under the existing civil liability rules, or that a new cause of action, or even a whole new set of rules, should be created in national systems.
