  • Plurality in the Fabric of International Courts and Tribunals: The Threads
           of a Managerial Approach
    • Authors: de Chazournes L.
      First page: 13
      Abstract: Starting from the observation that there has long been – and continues to be – a preference for a plurality of international courts and tribunals, this article explores the emerging threads of a managerial approach in the fabric of international dispute settlement due to the increased number of fora in recent years. It argues that, while plurality remains the choice, both judges and states are actors in efforts to order this plurality as the need for judicial awareness and tools to organize jurisdiction has become more acute. In particular, judicial actors have woven common normative threads through various communicative practices and their approach to matters of procedure. Further, procedural mechanisms are being used to a greater extent to mitigate the risks of overlapping jurisdiction and parallel proceedings. In this respect, international economic law is serving as a laboratory for the development of these mechanisms. They include, among others, adapted versions of lis pendens, connexité, or fork-in-the-road provisions. That said, similar threads of a managerial approach can be seen to be emerging beyond international economic law. Further reflection is needed on a creative means for ensuring coordination and coherence without compromising the preference for plurality.

  • Treaty-Making between Public Authority and Private Interests: The
           Genealogy of the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign
           Arbitral Awards
    • Authors: Grisel F.
      First page: 73
      Abstract: The bulk of the literature on transnational governance focuses on the bottom-up emergence of private rules, neglecting top-down processes such as treaty making. This article seeks to remedy this gap, using original archival material to show how a transnational network of experts associated with the International Chamber of Commerce influenced the negotiations of the United Nations Conference on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards (1958) and its final content. In doing so, this article will analyse the ways in which the complex allegiances developed within the International Chamber of Commerce enabled it to match public authority and private interests in a transnational legal process where states no longer held a monopoly.

  • The International Right of Rights? Article 25(a) of the ICCPR as a Human
           Right to Take Part in International Law-Making
    • Authors: Maisley N.
      First page: 89
      Abstract: Most international legal scholars consider that although the inclusion of civil society in international law-making would be desirable, it is not yet legally required. In this article, I argue that civil society groups already do have a right to participate in international law-making. Although I believe there are various paths that can be taken to defend this idea, in this article I focus on only one. I hold that the right can be derived from Article 25(a) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which grants every citizen ‘the right and the opportunity ... to take part in the conduct of public affairs, directly or through freely chosen representatives’. Specifically, I interpret Article 25(a) in accordance with the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties. I argue, first, that the article can be interpreted as applying internationally (considering the ordinary meaning, the context, the subsequent practice and other rules of international law) and, second, that it should be interpreted in this way (if read in good faith and considering the object and purpose of the treaty).

  • From Public International to International Public Law: Translating World
           Public Opinion into International Public Authority
    • Authors: von Bogdandy A; Goldmann M, Venzke I.
      First page: 115
      Abstract: This article argues that increasing demands in world public opinion for legitimate and effective international institutions require a paradigm shift in public international law. There is a part of public international law that should be better understood as international public law because it enables and disciplines the pursuit of public interests by international institutions. We consider such activities as exercises of international public authority. The article elaborates our approach by way of a thorough discussion of other approaches to governance phenomena in international legal scholarship. It then carves out the notion of international public authority. This notion includes various types of soft and informal governance instruments with innovative compliance mechanisms as well as the activities of informal and hybrid institutions or network-like structures.

  • Shifting the Lens on Alien Tort Statute Litigation: Narrating US Hegemony
           in Fil├írtiga and Marcos
    • Authors: Davidson NR.
      First page: 147
      Abstract: This article revisits the two seminal Alien Tort Statute (ATS) cases Filártiga v. Peña-Irala and In re: Marcos Human Rights Litigation. Setting aside the dominant framework of accountability, the article explores the historical narratives produced in those cases. It exposes how Filártiga and Marcos recast as entirely foreign violence in which the US executive was deeply involved, due to a combination of legal and political constraints in the exercise of a controversial form of jurisdiction. Moreover, these constraints have persisted in subsequent ATS litigation, creating a trade-off between individual accountability and narratives about US hegemony. By offering an alternative account of ATS litigation and exposing hitherto ignored costs of familiar legal developments, this article challenges the assumption that broad assertions of jurisdiction are necessarily beneficial in human rights struggles, and urges international lawyers to pay more attention to the interplay among doctrine, political circumstances and historical narrative when considering and comparing human rights mechanisms.

  • The ad bellum Challenge of Drones: Recalibrating Permissible Use of Force
    • Authors: Chehtman A.
      First page: 173
      Abstract: Drones constitute an incremental advance in weapons systems. They are able to significantly reduce overall, as well as collateral, damage. These features seem to have important implications for the ad bellum permissibility of resorting to military force. In short, drones would seem to expand the right to resort to military force compared to alternative weapons systems by making resorting to force proportionate in a wider set of circumstances. This line of reasoning has significant relevance in many contemporary conflicts. This article challenges this conclusion. It argues that resorting to military force through drones in contemporary asymmetrical conflicts would usually be disproportionate. The reason for this is twofold. First, under conditions of radical asymmetry, drones may not be discriminatory enough, and, thereby, collateral damage would still be disproportionate. Second, their perceived advantages in terms of greater discrimination are counteracted by the lesser chance of success in achieving the just cause for war. As a result, resorting to military force through drones in contemporary asymmetrical conflicts would generally be disproportionate not because of the harm they would expectedly cause but, rather, because of the limited harm they are ultimately able to prevent. On the basis of normative argument and empirical data, this article ultimately shows that we need to revise our understanding of ad bellum proportionality not only at the level of moral argument but also in international law.

  • Roaming Charges: Places of Solitude
    • First page: 199
      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.

  • Law Beyond the State: Some Philosophical Questions
    • Authors: Murphy L.
      First page: 203
      Abstract: Legal philosophers have rightly been criticized for neglecting international law since H.L.A. Hart’s chapter in The Concept of Law. At the same time, international legal theorists have not shown terribly much interest in reaching out to legal philosophers for enlightenment. Part of the reason may be that Hart’s chapter, full of insight though it was, made some quite perplexing observations about the nature of international law that have to a certain extent stood in the way of productive discussion. With the hope of encouraging more of a more productive dialogue, this article addresses a number of important philosophical questions about the nature of law beyond the state. The aim is as much to clarify what is at stake as to offer answers of my own, although I do provide those as well. At the same time, I will take some first steps towards linking those philosophical issues to what strike me as some of the most important recent questions and projects within international legal theory. Issues addressed include: How should we understand ‘positivism’ and ‘natural law’ in the case of non-domestic law?; Is international law a system?; Is it law?; International Responsibility; and Do subjects of non-domestic law have a duty to obey it?

  • Law Beyond the State: A Reply to Liam Murphy
    • Authors: Besson S.
      First page: 233
      Abstract: Voluntarism about the very sources of international law is incoherent, but there is a better way to interpret this view. The sources of international law being what they are, legal obligations are never imposed on states without their consent. ... The claim ... is false (though perhaps it once was true), but it is perfectly coherent, and it is not absurd to wish that it were (still) true.Liam Murphy, ‘Law Beyond the State: Some Philosophical Questions’11

      Abstract: A man is properly called a philosopher not primarily in virtue of holding a particular doctrine, but in virtue of having submitted himself to a particular kind of curiosity ... [A] philosophical doctrine is an ordered system of answers to the questions which a philosophical curiosity brings to the surface.11

  • Law Beyond the State: A Reply to Liam Murphy
    • Authors: von Bernstorff J.
      First page: 257
      Abstract: When legal philosophers write about international law, they tend to approach their topic from the central questions structuring their field: What are the philosophical ‘foundations’ of the concept of law? How can law be differentiated from other social norms, such as moral rules? These questions are then usually answered for international law in line with the philosophical tradition in which the author would answer the same questions for domestic law. But being confronted with international law traditionally leads legal philosophers to add a further set of questions: Is international law really law? Does it have comparable features to domestic law? Can it be properly enforced in the absence of centralized institutions that play such an important role for (domestic) law? Depending on the presupposed concept of law derived from domestic law, international law, for the legal philosopher, is, thus, law properly so called (Hans Kelsen) or not (John Austin) or not quite yet (H.L.A. Hart).

  • Law Beyond the State: A Rejoinder
    • Authors: Murphy L.
      First page: 265
      Abstract: It is an honour to receive replies to my article by four distinguished scholars of international law. I have learned a lot from each reply and am very grateful to the authors for taking the time to engage so thoughtfully with my piece. Two of the replies, however, in parts do somewhat misread my article and its motivation. This is my fault, of course, and I would like to try to make amends by starting with a few sentences about what I was trying to achieve.

  • Shall We Talk? Judicial Communication between the CJEU and WTO Dispute
    • Authors: Zang MQ.
      First page: 273
      Abstract: In this article, ‘judicial communication’ refers to the reference made by a judiciary, during the process of adjudication, to the decision and/or practice of another judiciary. This contribution looks into the communication between two major international adjudicators, namely the Court of Justice of the European Union and the Dispute Settlement Mechanism of the World Trade Organization. The research shows that the communication approach adopted, and the activities carried out by each adjudicator, significantly differ from each other, and this is mainly caused by the different perception of the referencing adjudicator towards the law applied and the decisions made by their counterpart. While the communication is ongoing, a number of important questions remain unanswered, including the fundamental enquiry in regard to the legal basis and consequences of such inter-jurisdiction communication. It thus becomes the pressing task of the adjudicators involved to elucidate these issues.

  • Jus Cogens Re-examined: Value Formalism in International Law
    • Authors: Kleinlein T.
      First page: 295
      Abstract: Jus cogens is receiving renewed interest both in legal practice and academia. A number of recent books approach the subject from different angles, attributable to different strands of the debate. Some approaches are predominantly technical and cannot adequately address the symbolic value of jus cogens. Others argue that considerable legal effects derive from the value dimension of jus cogens but risk skipping over technical niceties. Reading several works that represent these tendencies together points to an insurmountable tension between value orientation and formalism that is indicative of the current state of jus cogens in international law. In this review essay, I discuss a legal technique approach, a value approach relying on social contract theory and a practice-oriented approach to the study of jus cogens, represented by the three books under review. On the basis of the current state of case law and research, I also identify the most pressing challenges for our understanding of jus cogens and reflect on the relation of scholarship and the parallel work of the International Law Commission and, more generally, on the performative force of theories. I conclude that jus cogens as a manifestation of ‘value formalism’ in international law is an even greater conceptual conundrum than it was 20 years ago.

  • Does poetry play a role in social change?
    • Authors: Rich A.
      First page: 349
      Abstract: Yes, where poetry is liberative language,connecting the fragments within us,connecting us to others like and unlike ourselves,replenishing our desire.It’s potentially catalytic speech because it’s more than speech:it is associative, metaphoric, dialectical, visual, musical;in poetry words can say more than they mean and mean more than they say.In a time of frontal assaults both on language and onhuman solidarity, poetry can remind us of all we are indanger of losing – disturb us, embolden us out of resignation.
