  • ‘In the Beginning, There Was No Word …’
    • Authors: Vasel J.
      Pages: 1053 - 1056
      Abstract: ‘We are in the presence of a crime without a name,’11 Sir Winston Churchill remarked in a broadcast speech in 1941 with respect to German atrocities. But how to gauge the most heinous killings, the ‘crime of crimes’,22 the very epitome and evidence of the inhumanity of humans' It was Raphael Lemkin who noted in his seminal analysis of the gigantic Nazi scheme, Axis Rule in Occupied Europe, published in 1944, that ‘[n]ew conceptions require new terms’,33 and thus he created the neologism ‘genocide’ to make the inexplicable explicable. In the aftermath of the war, Lemkin laboured relentlessly to conceive the Genocide Convention. On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the signing of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide on 9 December 1948 we pay tribute to its ‘founding father’ – not an empty phrase, considering that Lemkin fiercely dedicated most of his life to the fight against the annihilation of groups and to the adoption of the Convention. He significantly forged it, and even referred to it at times as his child.

  • On Epistemic Universalism and the Melancholy of International Law
    • Authors: Klabbers J.
      Pages: 1057 - 1069
      Abstract: This contribution, first delivered as the keynote address to the 2018 annual conference of the European Society of International Law, aims to explore the effects of the way international legal research is organized on the contents of such research. The paper suggests that international law is no longer about what states do, but has come to be about what international lawyers do, and traces this to two inter-related factors (without any claims of exhaustiveness). First, international legal research has come to be embedded in a highly competitive setting, which affects the topics we examine and the ways in which we do so; it has stimulated, for instance, a strong division between doctrinal scholars, rational scholars, and critical scholars. Second, this competitive setting stimulates a sense of high drama: if we cannot promise a paradigm shift, we will not receive funding or other accolades, yet this way of thinking has little traction in practice or even academically. As a result, international lawyers have become highly fragmented, and the refusal to engage with each other can only be considered as contributing to epistemic injustice – and that is all rather melancholy.

  • Googling Democracy' New Technologies and the Law of Global Governance:
           Afterword to Eyal Benvenisti’s Foreword
    • Authors: Casini L.
      Pages: 1071 - 1077
      Abstract: This Afterword to Eyal Benvenisti’s EJIL Foreword, ‘Upholding Democracy amid the Challenges of New Technology: What Role for the Law of Global Governance'’ focuses on two sets of issues that Benvenisti analysed. These issues are the multi-fold dimensions of global administrative law and the role of the law of global governance before new technologies, with particular reference to fake news and disinformation, which is probably one of the most harmful contemporary threats against democracy in our time.

  • Accountability for Governance Choices in Artificial Intelligence:
           Afterword to Eyal Benvenisti’s Foreword
    • Authors: McGregor L.
      Pages: 1079 - 1085
      Abstract: A growing body of literature examines how to make the use of new and emerging technologies more transparent and explainable as a means to ensure accountability for harm to human rights. While a critical part of accountability, a predominant focus on the technology can result in the design and adaptation of accountability principles to ‘manage’ the technology instead of starting from an assessment of the governance choices actors make when integrating new and emerging technologies into their mandates. Recognition of the governance choices underpinning the introduction of new and emerging technologies is often overlooked in scholarship and practice. Yet, without explicit recognition of the role played by technology in governance, the disruptive effects of technology on (global) governance may be underplayed or even ignored. In this response, I argue that if the ‘culture of accountability’ is to adapt to the challenges posed by new and emerging technologies, the focus cannot only be technology-led. It must also be interrogative of the governance choices that are made within organizations, particularly those vested with public functions at the international and national level.

  • Toward Algorithmic Checks and Balances: A Rejoinder
    • Authors: Benvenisti E.
      Pages: 1087 - 1090
      Abstract: In their thoughtful responses to my 2018 Foreword, Lorenzo Casini and Lorna McGregor focus mainly on its third part that addresses the challenges posed by new technologies in governance. McGregor observes that ‘the use of new and emerging technologies … is central to the sustainability and adaptability of accountability principles’,11 and Casini emphasizes the challenge of fake news being ‘probably one of the most harmful contemporary threats against democracy in our time’.22 Indeed, the spread of new information and communication technologies has already transformed the way government functions. This move to automated decisions requires public lawyers to grasp the resulting seismic shifts in democratic governance and realize the need to readjust the traditional checks and balances by providing novel legal tools for ensuring voice and holding the algorithmic government to account.

  • Changing State Behaviour: Damages before the European Court of Human
    • Authors: Fikfak V.
      Pages: 1091 - 1125
      Abstract: Regardless of the efforts undertaken through the many reforms of the European Convention on Human Rights system, non-compliance with the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) remains a major problem for the Council of Europe. This article asks how we can change state behaviour and what role, if any, could damages play in this context. First, the article focuses on how the choice of remedy affects compliance and why aggravated or punitive damages look like an ideal option to nudge states into compliance. I explore recent arguments by scholars and judges who argue that the ECtHR should actively shift its approach (or perhaps already has) to nudge state behaviour towards compliance and prevention of future violations. Based on my empirical research, I show that the current case law presents several obstacles to the introduction of such damages. Building on the economic analysis of the law and insights from behavioural sciences, I reveal how the Court’s approach fails to comply with any of the elements needed to incentivize states to change their behaviour. I finally question to what extent aggravated or punitive damages can be efficient within a system that relies on voluntary compliance.

  • The Persuasiveness of Domestic Law Analogies in International Law
    • Authors: Hertogen A.
      Pages: 1127 - 1148
      Abstract: Domestic law analogies are often treated dismissively in international law cases and scholarship. Yet they continue to find their way into arguments about international law and sometimes into international law itself. Rather than rejecting such analogies, this article dissects the process of analogical reasoning into three steps, drawing on insights from the study of analogical reasoning in other disciplines. The aim of working through the three steps is to assess when a particular domestic law rule or concept can ‘fit’ in the different international law context and thus provide the basis for a domestic law analogy in international law.

  • ‘These Ancient Arenas of Racial Struggles’: International Law and the
           Balkans, 1878–1949
    • Authors: Tzouvala N.
      Pages: 1149 - 1171
      Abstract: This article revisits the disintegration of the Ottoman Empire and the emergence of national statehood in the Balkans. It traces this transitional process between the Congress of Berlin in 1878 and the United Nations involvement in the Greek Civil War (1946–1949). I show that this transition from empire to the nation-state was overdetermined by the partial and fragmented, yet influential, internationalization of significant questions regarding state building, including decisions about autonomy and independence, the drawing of boundaries, the protection of minorities and the continuation of economic relations. In fact, the Balkans became a site of experimentation for international legal techniques, such as fact-finding, peacekeeping missions or the administration of population exchanges, that would later acquire wider significance in the process of decolonization. The image of international law emerging from this account troubles the liberal understanding of international law and institutions as benevolent, cosmopolitan forces opposing, restraining and taming ‘nationalist passions’. Rather, it was precisely because the relationship between nationalism and internationalism was one of cooperation and co-constitution, as much as one of antagonism, that this multitude of international legal techniques conditioning sovereignty in the Balkans arose.

  • Biopolitical Borders and the State of Exception in the European Migration
    • Authors: Davitti D.
      Pages: 1173 - 1196
      Abstract: This article examines the current European refugee ‘crisis’ by challenging, from a theoretical perspective, the way in which the European Union (EU) has used the increased number of deaths in the Mediterranean as an opportunity to frame recent migration flows as an emergency that, by definition, can only be addressed through the adoption of exceptional measures. The analysis engages with the work of Giorgio Agamben on biopolitics and state of exception to illustrate, first, the need to rethink the way in which borders are defined and used (for example, externalized) within the context of the European refugee ‘crisis’. Second, Agamben’s work is useful to understand what moves the externalization and privatization of migration, and to ascertain how international law has enabled the emergence of this ‘crisis’ framing, whilst, at the same time, partly losing its ability to challenge EU policies. The article argues that the posture of humanitarianism adopted by the EU masks the fact that the appalling situation in which refugees are abandoned is not accidental but, rather, inherent to the enhanced measures adopted by the EU and its member states as part of the European Agenda on Migration.

  • Imperial Standard Time
    • Authors: Gordon G.
      Pages: 1197 - 1222
      Abstract: This article examines the establishment of globally standardized time under law in colonial India. Despite pretensions to abstract universality, globally standardized time was and remains a particular construction, built on the basis of particular interests. Since its creation, select parties have competed to dominate the production and operation of globally standardized time, and their competition has been steeped with law. In short, globally standardized time and what we today call transnational law are mutually implicated in the construction of one another. The history of their interaction in colonial India makes clear the ways they work together as a sort of technology, produced and maintained for particular purposes. Those purposes include the capacity to stabilize expectations and establish normative baselines in support of transactional networks across borders, and ultimately around the world. The process continues to this day, with standardized time and law interacting to enable and disable a changing array of legal practices and expectations internationally. The establishment of globally standardized time under law in colonial India reveals the foundations of this interrelationship, including imperial interests and ideologies embedded in its material development.

  • International Adjudication as a Global Public Good'
    • Authors: Paine J.
      Pages: 1223 - 1249
      Abstract: This article explores whether international adjudication might constitute a global public good or a mechanism that produces such goods. The article’s key contribution is to differentiate between the functions that are served by international adjudicatory processes and to demonstrate that these produce distinct costs and benefits, some of which are privately held and others that are much more diffusely held and involve public goods problems. Even within the one adjudicatory function, such as dispute settlement or compliance monitoring, there is often a complex mix of privately held costs and benefits and far more diffusely felt effects. The global public goods framework sheds light on how these varied costs and benefits are generated by different sets of actors, ranging from all states that create and maintain a tribunal, and broader compliance-supporting constituencies, through to outputs that largely depend on the efforts of individual litigants. The functions served by adjudication, whose relationship to global public goods are analysed, are the peaceful settlement of disputes; the development of international law; and the monitoring of compliance with, and enforcement of, international norms. I also consider the potential of international adjudication to ensure accountability and due process within attempts to provide global public goods.

  • Corruption as a Violation of International Human Rights
    • Authors: Peters A.
      Pages: 1251 - 1287
      Abstract: States perceived to be highly corrupt are at the same time those with a poor human rights record. International institutions have therefore assumed a negative feedback loop between both social harms. They deplore that corruption undermines the enjoyment of human rights and, concomitantly, employ human rights as a normative framework to denounce and combat corruption. But the human rights-based approach has been criticized as vague and over-reaching. Addressing this controversy, this article seeks to examine the legal quality of the assumed ‘link’ between corruption and human rights more closely. It specifically asks the dual question whether and under what conditions corrupt acts or omissions can technically be qualified as an actual violation of international human rights (doctrinal analysis of the positive law) and whether corruption should be conceptualized as a human rights violation (normative assessment). The answer is that such a reconceptualization is legally sound as a matter of positive analysis, although very difficult doctrinal problems arise. The normative assessment is ambivalent, but the practical benefits of the conceptualization seem to outweigh the risks of reinforcing the anti-Western scepticism towards the fight against corruption and of overblowing human rights. The framing of corruption not only as a human rights issue but even as a potential human rights violation can contribute to closing the implementation gap of the international anti-corruption instruments and can usefully complement the predominant criminal law-based approach.

  • Corruption as a Violation of International Human Rights: A Reply to Anne
    • Authors: Davis K.
      Pages: 1289 - 1296
      Abstract: Anne Peters proposes to use international human rights law as a lens for analysing corrupt acts or omissions.11 Her proposal fits squarely within the tradition of thinking that ‘every little bit helps’ when it comes to combatting corruption.22 Peters does not offer, however, any convincing reason to believe that human rights analysis is helpful in this context. In other words, she fails to explain how human rights analysis adds value, especially given the considerable effort required to show that any given corrupt act qualifies as a human rights violation and the sophistication of the existing anti-corruption regime. In this reply, I sketch an answer to this question that emphasizes the informational role of human rights analysis. I argue that human rights analysis plays a valuable role in anti-corruption efforts to the extent it helps to produce information about the incidence and moral significance of corruption.

      Abstract: Professor Anne Peters engages in her thought-provoking article with the challenging question of ‘which value does corruption harm in a legal system'’11 She claims that, from an empirical and doctrinal standpoint, corruption may constitute a human rights violation, and that, from a normative standpoint, it should be classified as such. However, the author’s first claim could be seen to be framed incorrectly and the arguments for her second claim, I would respectfully suggest, may not be completely satisfactory.

  • The Law of Military Occupation from the 1907 Hague Peace Conference to the
           Outbreak of World War II: Was Further Codification Unnecessary or
    • Authors: Graditzky T.
      Pages: 1305 - 1326
      Abstract: World War I is commonly perceived as having had a profound impact on international law. Such a general perception, be it justified or not, might in any event prove erroneous when looking at specific areas of this law. A focus on the law governing military occupation reveals a notable absence of change over the course of the war and the subsequent interwar period. In search of possible reasons, this article first looks at various opportunities that emerged – but were not ultimately seized – to adapt treaty law in the period between the two world wars. It then assesses whether changes had in fact occurred through other channels such as customary international law or treaty interpretation. Based on the observation that no meaningful change intervened, can it be concluded that, on the whole, the Hague regulations on military occupation met stakeholders’ expectations and therefore were not altered' The author suggests, rather, that the equilibrium founded in The Hague in 1899 (and confirmed in 1907) on the lines of tension between the states involved remained operational throughout the period under scrutiny.

  • The Impact of World War I on the Law Governing the Treatment of Prisoners
           of War and the Making of a Humanitarian Subject
    • Authors: Wylie N; Cameron L.
      Pages: 1327 - 1350
      Abstract: This article evaluates the impact of World War I on the development of international humanitarian law (IHL) regarding the treatment of the prisoner of war (POW). In contrast to traditional scholarship, which overlooks the war’s significance on the jus in bello, we argue that in the area of POW law, the changes brought about by the war were significant and long-lasting and led to the creation of a POW convention in 1929 that set IHL onto a markedly different path from that followed before 1914. Although the process was only completed with the signing of the four Geneva Conventions in 1949, many of the distinguishing features of modern POW law had their roots in the experience of captivity during World War I and the legal developments that followed in its wake. In particular, the scale, duration and intensity of wartime captivity after 1914 gave rise to a conceptual shift in the way POWs were perceived, transforming their status from ‘disarmed combatants’, whose special privileges were derived from their position as members of the armed forces, to ‘humanitarian subjects’, whose treatment was based on an understanding of their humanitarian needs and rights.

      Abstract: We deal in EJIL with the world we live in – often with its worst and most violent pathologies, often with its most promising signs of hope for a better world. But, inevitably, since our vehicle is scholarship, we reify this world. Roaming Charges is designed not just to offer a moment of aesthetic relief, but to remind us of the ultimate subject of our scholarly reflections: we alternate between photos of places – the world we live in – and photos of people – who we are, the human condition. We eschew the direct programmatic photograph: people shot up; the ravages of pollution and all other manner of photojournalism.

  • Fake News and International Law
    • Authors: Baade B.
      Pages: 1357 - 1376
      Abstract: In light of current efforts at addressing the dangers of fake news, this article will revisit the international law relevant to the phenomenon – in particular, the prohibition of intervention, the 1936 International Convention on the Use of Broadcasting in the Cause of Peace and the 1953 Convention on the International Right of Correction. It will be argued that important lessons can be learned from the League of Nations’ efforts in the interwar period and the United Nations’ (UN) activities in the immediate post-World War II era, while taking into account the new challenges that arise from modern communication technology. Taking up the League of Nations’ and UN’s distinction between false and distorted news, the international legal framework will be tested, in particular, against the coverage of the 2016 ‘Lisa case’ by Russian government-funded media. This coverage is widely considered to be fake news aimed at destabilizing Germany’s society and institutions. The article argues that false news can be subject to repressive regulation in a sensible manner. Distorted news, however, will have to be tolerated legally since prohibitions in this regard would be too prone to abuse. A free and pluralist media, complemented by an appropriate governmental information policy, remains the best answer to fake news in all of its forms. Due diligence obligations of fact-checking, transparency and remedies that are effective despite difficulties in attribution, and despite a lack of universal acceptance, could likewise be conducive.

  • The International Prospects of the Soixante-Huitard
    • Authors: Whitehall D.
      Pages: 1377 - 1407
      Abstract: Revolution is not an international legal category. The golden jubilee of the global protests and rebellions identified with 1968 presents an opportunity to reconsider the usual formula from the angle of the protagonist of the French upheavals and its critic, Hannah Arendt. The soixante-huitard strikes a provocative figure for the humanist achievements and celebrations of the world community in 1968: its youthful songs, playfulness, dissatisfaction and anxiety for things to come tied it, temporally and symbolically, to the moving reel of protest across the post-industrial world and to the thematic heartbeat of international law in the first International Year of Human Rights. The catch is the imperfection of the connection. Arendt’s writing about revolution and international law does not resolve the dissidence between the two phenomena or its reiteration by the United Nations in 1968. What Arendt does do, however, is to measure the success or failure of each against its mission to humanize the world. This article takes inspiration from Arendt to refigure the usual relation between international law and revolution as paired projects that do not yoke, but, rather, relate and separate, along a single, humanist seam.

  • Unique, Special, or Simply a Primus Inter Pares' The European Union in
           International Law
    • Authors: Palchetti P.
      Pages: 1409 - 1426
      Abstract: The three books under review analyse for the main part the impact of the European Union (EU) on the practice of international law. All three show the difficulties the EU faces in reconciling its ambition to fully participate in international life with the preservation of certain special features that characterize its internal structure. They also illustrate how the international action of the EU is characterized by a constant effort to ensure that its special features are accepted by the other actors. In this review essay, I discuss the legal challenges faced by the EU at the international level by focusing on the sui generis nature of the EU as an international subject. I consider the different visions of the EU that transpire from each of these books, highlighting the tendency that sometimes emerges to overemphasize the ‘special features’ of the EU at the expense of a balanced consideration of the possible implications of EU-centred solutions for the other actors involved. While no doubt the EU presents particular features that have no parallel in any other international organization, this, in itself, can hardly be used as an argument to justify that a special treatment be accorded to the EU. The recognition of a special status requires some degree of acceptance by the other actors on the international stage. I conclude by noting that the EU’s ‘specialness’ appears to have the effect of limiting its capacity to contribute to international law-making.
