  • Imagining the Rule of Law: Rereading the Grotian ‘Tradition’
    • Authors: Koskenniemi M.
      Pages: 17 - 52
      Abstract: International law exists in the slippery zone between abstract speculation on binding principles and realistic deference to power. The position of Hugo Grotius as ‘father’ of international law, this article will suggest, results from the way later lawyers have appreciated his suggestion that when human beings enter that zone, they will discover a tendency to subordinate themselves to ‘rules’ that is lacking from other living creatures. Grotius then uses this assumed tendency to explain the trust and confidence with which members of good societies agree to live in peace and expect mutual benefits from cooperating with each other. The same tendency also entitles them to punish those who question the beneficial nature of these rules or lay down obstacles to their expansion. The importance of Grotius in the history of legal thought is highlighted by the manner in which the idea (though not the expression) of the ‘rule of law’ emerges in De iure belli ac pacis (1625) as a powerful justification of the government of a post-feudal, commercial state.

  • Perspective and Scale in the Architecture of International Legal History
    • Authors: Vadi V.
      Pages: 53 - 71
      Abstract: AbstractRecent trends such as the turn to the history of international law, the parallel turn to the international law of history and the resulting emergence of international legal history as a field of study have encouraged an unprecedented interest in methodological questions in international legal history. Should international legal historians focus on the specific or the general' Should their narration be accessible to the many or should it be academic and addressed to the few' This article contributes to these emerging debates by focusing on the perspective and scale of analysis and investigating whether micro-historical approaches can help international legal historians to bridge the gap between the academic realm and the public, unveil unknown or little known international legal histories and contribute to the development of the field. This article aims to start a discussion on perspective and scale in international legal history and argues for inclusive and pluralist approaches by drawing out the advantages and potential of micro-history in relation to, and in combination with, the prevalent doctrinal, institutional and diplomatic macro-histories of international law.

  • From Joining to Leaving: Domestic Law’s Role in the International Legal
           Validity of Treaty Withdrawal
    • Authors: Woolaver H.
      Pages: 73 - 104
      Abstract: AbstractIf a state withdraws from a treaty in a manner that violates its own domestic law, will this withdrawal take effect in international law' The decisions to join and withdraw from treaties are both aspects of the state’s treaty-making capacity. Logically, international law must therefore consider the relationship between domestic and international rules on states’ treaty consent both in relation to treaty entry and exit. However, while international law provides a role for domestic legal requirements in the international validity of a state’s consent when joining a treaty, it is silent on this question in relation to treaty withdrawal. Further, there has been little scholarly or judicial consideration of this question. This contribution addresses this gap. Given recent controversies concerning treaty withdrawal – including the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union, South Africa’s possible withdrawal from the International Criminal Court, and the threatened US denunciation of the Paris Agreement – and the principles underlying this body of law, it is proposed that the law of treaties should be interpreted so as to develop international legal recognition for domestic rules on treaty withdrawal equivalent to that when states join treaties, such that a manifest violation of domestic law may invalidate a state’s treaty withdrawal in international law.

  • Jurisdictional Immunities Revisited: An Analysis of the Procedure
           Substance Distinction in International Law
    • Authors: Jervis C.
      Pages: 105 - 128
      Abstract: AbstractThe International Court of Justice’s sclerotic approach to the interaction between substantive and procedural law in the Jurisdictional Immunities case need not and should not be the final word on the relationship between substantive and procedural law. While most lawyers would recognize the categories of substantive and procedural law, relatively few have considered the nature of the distinction between them. This article attempts to address that gap. It seeks to expose the flaws in approaching the distinction between substantive and procedural law in a binary way both as a matter of principle and in practice. In so far as it is helpful to use these labels at all, therefore, they should be the beginning rather than the end of the analysis.

      Abstract: This is a slightly modified version of a dialogue we read on 8 September 2018 at the Graduate Institute, Geneva, in lieu of staging a traditional presentation of the lengthy paper we had filed with the organizers of the workshop on ‘Knowledge Production and International Law’. Mindful of Professor J.H.H. Weiler’s advice in his Editorial, ‘On My Way Out – Advice to Young Scholars I: Presenting in an International (and National) Conference’, 26 EJIL (2015) 313, at 315, we tried to turn a liability – multiple speakers are even more prone to exceed allotted timeslots – into an asset; we changed the format completely, so that instead of having before us a 27-page sheaf, upon which the panel chair would have cast a dismayed glance (ibid., at 314), we found ourselves nervously clutching a 6-page script on the unlikely stage of amphitheatre Jacques Freymond. But our strategy proved effective as far as time-keeping was concerned: we were allotted 20 minutes; we did it in less than 19. By casting the paper into a different genre we found ourselves changing the argumentative strategy to such an extent that a largely autonomous text grew out of what we had planned as a simple expedient. The workshop organizers kindly permitted us to publish it separately. We make our intellectual debts explicit in a bibliographic endnote.

  • International Law in the Best of All Possible Worlds: An Introduction to
           G.W. Leibniz’s Theory of International Law
    • Authors: Altwicker T.
      Pages: 137 - 158
      Abstract: AbstractToday, the contribution by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646–1716), the last ‘universal genius’, to the theory of international law is nearly forgotten. Leibniz was a lawyer by training (later in life holding prestigious positions such as Reichshofrat), and he acted as a diplomat and political advisor to the Duke of Hanover. His engagement with legal practice distinguishes Leibniz from other philosophers. Always looking for intellectual synergies, Leibniz integrated his knowledge of (positive) law into his legal theory. He provides the rare combination of an international legal theory that is both grounded in his metaphysics and natural law theory and inspired by his extensive study of the positive international law of his time (Leibniz was the first to systematically collect and analyse historical international treaty law). This article introduces Leibniz’s theory of international law by outlining the different conceptual layers of his notion of ius gentium, by explaining the functions of natural law for positive international law and by showing how natural law can shape the substance of international relations. The three takeaways from Leibniz for contemporary international legal theory are the idea of optimizing pluralism, his ideas on synergies between theory and practice and, finally, his insistence on treating law as ‘legal science’.

  • Roaming Charges: Moments of History: 1989
    • Pages: 159 - 162
      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.

  • Regional Organizations and the Reintegrating of International Law
    • Authors: Chalmers D.
      Pages: 163 - 167
      Abstract: Regional organizations range from geographically dispersed, weakly institutionalized organizations to organizations like the European Union (EU). This diversity is a reflection of their ubiquity. As of 1 May 2018, the World Trade Organization (WTO) acknowledged that there were 287 regional trading arrangements in force.11 This idea has been picked up for some time in political science. At least since the pioneering work of Peter Katzenstein, the (international) region has been seen as generating a research agenda of its own.22 In parallel fashion, a significant literature has emerged on comparative regional integration.33 With a few notable exceptions, however, there has been little legal literature that has been comparative,44 and the legal academy has focused on the EU at the possible expense of other regional organizations.55

  • The Regional Remaking of Trade and Investment Law
    • Authors: Chalmers D; Slupska J.
      Pages: 169 - 197
      Abstract: AbstractRegional trade agreements (RTAs) are reshaping the international regime on trade and investments. This is not because they establish new forms of liberalizing or diverting trade and investment. It is rather that narratives are deployed to justify their government. These narratives derive their force from setting out what the vocation of government requires. However, in turn, they inform the remit of the RTA by setting out its mission. In this, they inform its sectors of activity, the types of regulation and rule adopted it, its approach to migration and how it handles distributive conflicts generated by its norms.

  • Regional Parliaments and African Economic Integration
    • Authors: Jancic D.
      Pages: 199 - 228
      Abstract: AbstractThis article analyses the parliamentarization of regional organizations through the lens of African economic integration. Following successful independence movements, regional integration in Africa has evolved rapidly with many regional organizations envisaging a form of parliamentary cooperation. This is only sparsely accounted for in the literature. We know little about the underlying factors that inspire African regional parliamentarization and how problems associated with democracy consolidation, poverty elimination and the maintenance of peace have influenced this process. These questions are investigated through a comparative study of four regional parliamentary bodies that cover Africa’s major integration projects – the Pan-African Parliament, the East African Legislative Assembly, the Economic Community of West African States Parliament, and the Southern African Development Community Parliamentary Forum. Insights from Latin America, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, the European Union and North America are also selectively given to provide a comparative and contextual perspective. The analysis of African regional parliaments begins with an assessment of the narratives informing their institutionalization by examining their proclaimed objectives and motives, followed by an appraisal of their structure, powers and functions. On this basis, the article queries the benefits and constraints of regional parliamentary action. The inquiry concludes with a critical evaluation of regional parliamentary blueprints and discusses the dynamics shaping the evolution of transnational democracy.

  • Transforming Membership' Citizenship, Identity and the Problem of
           Belonging in Regional Integration Organizations
    • Authors: Neuvonen P.
      Pages: 229 - 255
      Abstract: AbstractRegional integration organizations (RIOs) renegotiate the boundaries of socio-political membership when they confer social, economic or political rights on non-nationals. This article examines how access to socio-political membership intersects with regional community building in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, the Economic Community of West African States and the Southern Common Market. Whilst the promise of people-oriented integration is common to all three organizations, they deploy different political and legal tools to advance regional community building. These choices reflect the diverging visions of belonging in contemporary RIOs. However, the comparative analysis in this article shows that people-orientedness remains an unattainable normative goal unless the focus of regional membership politics moves from fostering regional belonging and unity to recognizing intra-regional differences. A revised theory of regional community building must therefore vindicate, rather than suppress, differences within RIOs.

  • Integrating the Subject: Narratives of Emancipation in Regionalism
    • Authors: de Witte F.
      Pages: 257 - 278
      Abstract: This article seeks to tease out how different regional organizations understand the subject and how that subject frames the process of integration. It does so in two steps. The first part of the article argues that the notion of emancipation is an interesting lens through which to approach this question in a way that allows for a meaningful and nuanced comparison of radically different projects of regional integration. Emancipation, at the highest level of abstraction, is concerned with the capacity of (public) power to dominate the subject in the ways in which she understands or realizes herself. The regional integration projects that have emerged as ways of overcoming quite specific and historically rooted state limitations, have a selective vision of who the subject is. This selective vision needs to be appreciated in order to understand the organization and process of integration. The second part of the article looks at the European Union, the African Union and Mercosur through this lens and traces different visions of emancipation and of the relationship between the subject, state and regional integration.

  • Last Mile for Tuna (to a Safe Harbour): What Is the TBT Agreement All
    • Authors: Mavroidis P.
      Pages: 279 - 301
      Abstract: AbstractThe WTO Agreement on Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT Agreement) aims to tame non-tariff barriers, the main instrument segmenting markets nowadays. Some of the terms used in the TBT Agreement to flesh out the commitments undertaken are borrowed from the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), and some originate in the modern regulatory reality as expressed through standard-development organizations. The TBT Agreement does not share a copycat function with the GATT though. Alas, the World Trade Organization’s Appellate Body, by understanding words as ‘invariances’ – for example, interpreting them out of context (without asking what is the purpose for the TBT Agreement) – has not only exported its GATT case law but also misapplied it into the realm of the TBT Agreement, and ended up with significant errors. This article explains why the current approach is erroneous, and advances an alternative understanding, which could help implement the TBT Agreement in a manner faithful to its negotiating intent and objective function.

  • The Annexation of Crimea and Balance of Power in International Law
    • Authors: Mälksoo L.
      Pages: 303 - 319
      Abstract: AbstractIn this review essay, two recent books, one analysing the question of the Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014 directly and the other in the context of changing geopolitics and world order, are discussed. Parallels with war pamphlets in the 18th century, authored by Olaus Hermelin and Petr Shafirov in the context of the Great Nordic War, are drawn. Rein Müllerson’s suggestion that the world should return to balance-of-power politics in the context of international law is rejected.

  • The Facilitative Function of Jus in Bello
    • Authors: Lieblich E.
      Pages: 321 - 340
      Abstract: AbstractIn a recent book, Adil Ahmad Haque attempts to reconcile between jus in bello and ‘deep morality’, by constructing international humanitarian law (IHL) as a prohibitive system, the constitutive aim of which is non-consequentialist: to ‘serve’ combatants by providing them with rules that if followed would allow them to better conform to their moral obligations. After situating Haque’s approach within the current debate between traditional and revisionist just war theorists, this review essay asks whether constructing IHL as a prohibitive set of norms is indeed sufficient to reconcile it with morality. By utilizing insights from legal realism, I argue that when determining whether law prohibits or permits, it is not sufficient to analyse pure legal concepts but, rather, we have to ask how law functions. This analysis reveals that IHL can be facilitative of action – meaning, of war – even if it is construed as formally prohibitive. This, in turn, calls for two conclusions: on the ethical level, when considering the morality of IHL, its facilitative function should be taken into account. On the legal level, recognizing the facilitative nature of IHL might assist us in answering key unresolved questions – namely, whether the material, spatial, and temporal thresholds for the application of IHL should be high or low
