The central theme of the volume is cultural diversity, a vast subject that is highly relevant today. The particular focus here is on the many ways in which this diversity is managed within the framework of State law. The twelve contributors to this book have a special interest in how cultural traditions and their various forms of expression are handled by the law. They were all participants in the 2009 Research Programme of the Centre for Studies and Research of the Hague Academy of International Law. The breadth of the subject is reflected in the wide spectrum of perspectives from which the topic has been explored. Starting in each case from the existing State and international legal frameworks, the contributors explore how the interactions between positive law and other normative orders can be placed at the service of a legal system that is as fair as possible within a plural context. Contributors were asked to choose from two alternative approaches : either they could look at cultural diversity issues in the field of private (international) law, a fairly traditional field that is especially relevant to the legal treatment of cultural diversity ; or they could situate cultural diversity within the wider and more theoretical area of "legal pluralism", whether on a local or regional level or at the international (United Nations) level.

Esta obra contiene lecciones de derecho internacional público que un grupo de docentes argentinos presenta con su propio estilo y metodología, con el objetivo de introducir a los alumnos en la materia y, en algunos temas, profundizar su análisis m así como brindar aportes para su comprensión. En cada uno de los capítulos se platean cuestiones teóricas pero sin descuidar la aplicación práctica. Es por ello que se hace constante alusión a la jurisprudencia relevante, refiriendo a decisiones recientes de los tribunales internacionales. Además, se incluyen más de cincuenta esquemas, ilustraciones y gráficos, con el fin de hacer más simple la comprensión de ciertos tópicos. Se ha buscado, asimismo, poner énfasis en la práctica argentina y se ha prestado especial atención a los temas que son relevantes para este país, que no siempre se discuten en los manuales clásicos de derecho internacional: asuntos y controversias territoriales y limítrofes de la República Argentina, regulación de los cursos de agua internacionales y recursos hídricos compartidos, litigios en materia de inversiones extranjeras, tratamiento de las inmunidades del Estado por la Argentina y por otros Estados en casos contra este país, etcétera. Asimismo, una buena parte del libro está dedicada al derecho del mar, y tiene en cuenta la amplia participación argentina en órganos y foros internacionales y su rol en la evolución y desarrollo de esta rama del derecho internacional. El valor agregado de esta obra se encuentra, a su vez, en que cada uno se los capítulos ha sido cuidadosamente tratado a la luz de las discusiones actuales que están teniendo lugar en los distintos ámbitos en los que los sujetos del derecho internacional actúan.

En el año 2008, dos autores británicos sin perfil académico, Graham Pascoe y Peter Pepper, publicaron en inglés y en castellano un folleto titulado “Más allá de la historia oficial. La verdadera historia de las Falklands/Malvinas”. Desde entonces ha sido publicado en diferentes versiones, algunas más abreviadas que otras; la última de ellas, distribuida oficialmente por el gobierno británico en el Comité de Descolonización de Naciones Unidas en junio de 2015, pomposamente intitulada “Historia falsas sobre las Falklands/Malvinas ante la Organización de las Naciones Unidas: Cómo la Argentina engañó a la ONU en 1964-y sigue haciéndolo”. Se trata simplemente de un intento de reescribir la historia. El panfleto oficioso británico intenta en vano tergiversar los sólidos argumentos histórico-jurídicos que demuestran la soberanía argentina y trata de convencer al lector de que las islas están habitadas por un pueblo de origen multinacional que sería titular del derecho de libre determinación de los pueblos. La obra de Marcelo Kohen y Facundo Rodríguez refuta cada uno de los nuevos argumentos británicos, tanto desde el punto de vista histórico como desde el jurídico. Brinda al lector información de primera mano, mucha de ella hasta hora no explotada en la abundante bibliografía existente. Constituye una fuente indispensable para comprender las posiciones de las partes en la disputa cuya solución sigue pendiente.

The post Cold War proliferation of international adjudicatory bodies and international adjudication has had dramatic effects on both international law and politics, greatly affecting international relations, particularly economic relations, the enforcement of human rights, and the criminal pursuit of perpetrators of mass atrocities. International courts and tribunals have become, in some respects, the lynchpin of the modern international legal system. The Oxford Handbook of International Adjudication uniquely brings together analysis of the legal, philosophical, ethical and political considerations brought about by these bodies. It provides an original and comprehensive understanding of the various forms of international adjudication. A series of cross-cutting chapters overview key issues in the field, both theoretical and practical, providing scholars, students, and practitioners with a detailed understanding of important legal and political influences within the international adjudicative process. The Handbook is divided into six parts. The first part provides an overview of the origins and evolution of international adjudicatory bodies, from the nineteenth century to the present, highlighting the dynamics driving the multiplication of international adjudicative bodies and their uneven expansion. The second analyzes the main families of international adjudicative bodies, providing a detailed study of state-to-state, criminal, human rights, regional economic, and administrative courts and tribunals, as well as arbitral tribunals and international compensation bodies. The third part lays out the theoretical approaches to international adjudication, including from political science, sociology, philosophy, ethics, and the perspectives of developing countries. The fourth part examines some contemporary issues in international adjudication, including the behavior, role, and effectiveness of international judges, the political constraints that restrict their function, as well as the making of international law by international courts and tribunals, the relationship between international and domestic adjudicators, the election and selection of judges, the development of judicial ethical standards, and the financing of international courts. The fifth part examines key actors in international adjudication, including international judges, legal counsels, international prosecutors, and registrars. Finally, the sixth provides an overview of some selected legal and procedural issues facing international adjudication, such as evidence, fact-finding and experts, jurisdiction and admissibility, the role of third parties, inherent powers, and remedies. The Handbook will be an invaluable and thought-provoking resource for scholars and students of international law and political science, and to legal practitioners at international courts and tribunals.

The question of what is, what is not, part of international law is of course fundamental. Traditionally, treaties between states and custom (state practice) have been seen as the primary means by which international law is created. These two sources, along with the ‘general principles of law’, are specified in the Statute of the Intenational Court of Justice (Article 38), and this text has long been treated as generally authoritative. However, Whether this is still and adequate definition of sources of international law, and how they may operate in modern international society, has been questioned in significant ways. Taking Article 38 ICJ Statute as starting-point, this book provides a careful assessment of all the recognised, or asserted, sources of international law. Among the issues considered are: the impact of ethical principles on the creation of international law; the existence of peremptory norms (those of jus cogens), and whether they come into being throught the same sources as other norms; the place of these, and of norms involving rights and obligations erga omnes, in the operation of international legal relationships; the definition and role of ‘general principles of law’; whether any of international law ‘s sub-disciplines involve the application of additional sources; and the continuously evolving relationship between treaty-based law and customary international law. Re-examining the traditional model, the work takes account of the increasing role of international jurisprudence, and looks at international organisations and non-state actors as potential new sources, as well as innovative perspectives on new developments, making it essential reading for anyone studing or working in any field of international law.

This volume is an updated and revised version of the General Course on Public International Law delivered by the Author at The Hague Academy of International Law in 2005. Professor Cançado Trindade develops his Leitmotiv of identification of a Corpus Juris increasingly oriented to the fulfillment of the needs and aspirations of human beings, of peoples and of humankind as a whole. With the overcoming of the purely inter-State dimension of the discipline of the past, international legal personality has expanded, so as to encompass nowadays, besides States and International organizations, also peoples, individuals and humankind as subjects of International Law. The growing consciousness of the need to pursue universally-shared values has brought about a fundamental change in the outlook of International Law in the last decades, drawing closer attention to its foundation and, parallel to its formal sources, to its material source (the universal juridical conscience). He examines the conceptual constructions of this new International Law and identifies basic considerations of humanity permeating its whole corpus juris, disclosing the current processes of its humanization and universalization. Finally, he addresses the construction of the International rule of Law, acknowledging the need and quest for international compulsory jurisdiction, in the move towards a new jus gentium, the International Law for humankind.
