  • Maritime Legal Black Holes: Migration and Rightlessness in International
    • Authors: Mann I.
      Pages: 347 - 372
      Abstract: AbstractThis article explores the trope of the ‘legal black hole’ to reveal questions of legal theory arising from contemporary migrant drownings. The theme was popularized during what was then called the ‘war on terror’, but its trajectory is longer and more complex. Its material history, as well as its intellectual history within legal scholarship, suggest three distinct ‘legacies’ of legal black holes: the counterterrorism legacy; the migrant-detention legacy; and the legacy of the maritime legal black hole. The tripartite division provides a conceptual typology of instances where persons are rendered rightless. While the two former types are characterized by de facto rightlessness due to a violation of international law, the latter exposes a seldom acknowledged, yet crucial, characteristic of international law; the age-old doctrine on the division of responsibilities between states and individuals at land and at sea is now creating the conditions in which some people are rendered de jure rightless. Moreover, the typology sheds light on the specifically legal reasons for the seeming failure to end mass drowning of migrants and refugees in the Mediterranean Sea. Tracing the ways in which people become de jure rightless is ultimately suggested as a broader research agenda for scholars of international law.

  • The Return of Cultural Genocide'
    • Authors: Bilsky L; Klagsbrun R.
      Pages: 373 - 396
      Abstract: AbstractCultural genocide, despite contemporary thinking, is not a new problem in need of normative solution, rather it is as old as the concept of genocide itself. The lens of law and history allows us to see that the original conceptualization of the crime of genocide – as presented by Raphael Lemkin – gave cultural genocide centre stage. As Nazi crime was a methodical attempt to destroy a group and as what makes up a group’s identity is its culture, for Lemkin, the essence of genocide was cultural. Yet the final text of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (Genocide Convention) does not prohibit cultural genocide as such, and it is limited to its physical and biological aspects. What led to this exclusion' In this article, we examine the various junctures of law, politics and history in which the concept was shaped: the original conceptualization by Lemkin; litigation in national and international criminal courts and the drafting process of the Genocide Convention. In the last part, we return to the mostly forgotten struggle for cultural restitution (books, archives and works of art) fought by Jewish organizations after the Holocaust as a countermeasure to cultural genocide. Read together, these various struggles uncover a robust understanding of cultural genocide, which was once repressed by international law and now returns to haunt us by the demands of groups for recognition and protection.

  • Determinants of Compliance Difficulties among ‘Good Compliers’:
           Implementation of International Human Rights Rulings in the Czech Republic
    • Authors: Kosař D; Petrov J.
      Pages: 397 - 425
      Abstract: AbstractThe aim of this article is to explore factors that account for compliance difficulties that may eventually result in a variable level of implementation of the rulings of the European Court of Human Rights and the United Nations Human Rights Committee. We do so by focusing on the high-cost rulings requiring complex legislative measures rendered against the Czech Republic, which ranks among the best compliers among Central and Eastern European countries as well as overall. Our study shows that the level of compliance achieved depends on a repeated balancing exercise, in which domestic political actors balance domestic political costs of compliance against international reputational costs of non-compliance. Subsequently, we argue that the lapse of time is critical in understanding the compliance processes as, sometimes, even a short moment of time, when domestic political costs of compliance become lower than international reputational costs of non-compliance, may create a ‘window of opportunity’ for adopting legislation that is necessary for implementing the given rulings of international human rights bodies. Pro-compliance actors then have to take full advantage of such ‘windows of opportunity’. If they fail to do so, this window may close for a long time, if not forever.

  • The Authority of Universal Jurisdiction
    • Authors: Hovell D.
      Pages: 427 - 456
      Abstract: AbstractThe aim of this article is to flesh out the implications of seeing universal jurisdiction as a claim to authority. While the idea that jurisdiction is an exercise of authority may seem obvious, the article invites attention to the ‘claim’ inherent within it, particularly where the exercise of jurisdiction intrudes upon or displaces competing claims. Legal scholars and practitioners tend to focus on the legal source of authority to exercise universal jurisdiction. The consequence is a tendency to think in binary terms; a court either has jurisdiction, in which case the matter will proceed without further attention to the question of jurisdiction, or it does not, in which case the whole matter is at an end. Jurisdictional thinking invites attention to the need for those asserting such a claim to take responsibility for these claims to authority, encouraging responsiveness to the normative communities that such claims put into relation and the potential need to rethink conventional modes of operation. The article proceeds in two parts. Part 1 examines the deficiencies in the dominant ‘legal source’ narrative on universal jurisdiction. Part 2 assesses the value of understanding the legal-political dimension of universal jurisdiction as a claim to authority that must be understood, and justified, with attention to its purpose and the community (or communities) it is intended to serve.

  • International Law and the First World War: Belligerency and Neutrality
    • Pages: 457 - 457
      Abstract: We continue our interdisciplinary examination of International Law and the First World War in this issue with the second instalment in our four-part symposium.11 The articles which make up this symposium, the result of a fruitful exchange among academics from the fields of history, law and legal history, each reflect different aspects and perspectives on the four-year global conflict and its influence on the development of international law in the 20th and 21st centuries. The articles in this issue focus on belligerency and neutrality.

  • Disrupting a Delicate Balance: The Allied Blockade Policy and the Law of
           Maritime Neutrality during the Great War
    • Authors: Neff S.
      Pages: 459 - 475
      Abstract: AbstractThe law of neutrality as it stood in 1914 was a set of compromises that had evolved from past practices, most notably regarding the law of blockade. During World War I, the Allied (predominantly British) economic warfare policy could not comprise classic close blockading as in previous conflicts. As a result, various specific policies were devised that, in combination, were designed to have much the same material impact and, therefore, to operate as a functional equivalent to traditional blockading. The lawfulness of each of these component policies was determined by the law of neutrality as it had evolved up to 1914, as embodied most notably in the (unratified) Declaration of London of 1909. Six major legal strategies were devised. Contraband lists were expanded beyond the limits stated in the Declaration, enabling goods to be captured anywhere on the high seas. There was also a reclaiming of traditional, pre-Declaration rights, amounting effectively to a repudiation of the compromises and concessions that had gone into the making of the Declaration. The use of existing traditional belligerents’ rights was extended, most notably in the area of visit and search. Rigorous use was made of the continuous-voyage principle, most notably with the application of the principle to conditional, as well as to absolute, contraband (contrary to the terms of the Declaration of London). The principle of reprisal was invoked to justify measures that were barred by the inherited law of neutrality. Finally, various sovereign-right measures were employed, most notably navicerting and blacklisting. Debates over the lawfulness of these measures occurred during the conflict and continued afterwards. The basic conflict was between a focus on the adherence to specific rules and a focus on the adherence to the deeper principles that arguably underlay the surface rules.

  • Uninvited and Unwelcome: The SS Appam and the US Law of Neutrality
    • Authors: Norris A.
      Pages: 477 - 502
      Abstract: AbstractOn 15 January 1916, the British steamer Appam was captured near the Madeiras by the German raider Moëwe. British mystification regarding her disappearance was more than matched by American officials’ consternation when the vessel, flying German naval colours, unexpectedly appeared at the entrance to Hampton Roads, Virginia, on 1 February 1916. These officials were further discomfited to discover she was under the command of a German prize crew whose commander, LT Hans Berg, was demanding that the USA permit Appam, under German control, to remain indefinitely in a US port. This demand was the first salvo in a bitter diplomatic row between the USA, Britain and Germany regarding the rights and obligations of a neutral respecting a prize brought by a belligerent into its territory. The nature of this dispute was irrevocably altered when the vessel’s British representatives filed suit in the USA for the return of the vessel and her cargo. This article tells the story of Appam, focusing on the diplomatic and legal sparring that characterized her tenure in US waters. In so doing, it traces the development of the law of maritime neutrality with respect to prizes in the USA during World War I.

  • Roaming Charges: Moments of History
    • Pages: 503 - 506
      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.

  • Leaders in the Expansive and Restrictive Interpretation of Investment
           Treaties: A Descriptive Study of ISDS Awards to 2010
    • Authors: Van Harten G.
      Pages: 507 - 549
      Abstract: AbstractThis article provides an empirical analysis of interpretive discretion in investor–state dispute settlement (ISDS). Since the late 1990s, foreign investors have brought hundreds of investment treaty claims against states, leading to numerous awards in which arbitrators have interpreted investment treaties. Arbitrators may resolve ambiguities in the treaties in expansive or restrictive ways, thereby affecting the compensatory promise of ISDS for foreign investors and corresponding risks for states. Which arbitrators have contributed most to expansive or restrictive approaches' To examine this question, data was analysed on arbitrators’ resolutions of contested legal issues, such as the permissibility of parallel or minority shareholder claims and the scope of concepts of investment, fair and equitable treatment, full protection and security and indirect expropriation. The analysis allows for rankings of arbitrators and tentative descriptive findings identifying a small group of individuals as the leading contributors to expansive resolutions and one individual as the leading contributor to restrictive resolutions. The analysis reveals how interpretive discretion impacted relevant legal aspects of ISDS in its first two decades and supplements other research on ISDS arbitrator behaviour.

  • Managing Backlash: The Evolving Investment Treaty Arbitrator'
    • Authors: Langford M; Behn D.
      Pages: 551 - 580
      Abstract: AbstractHave investment treaty arbitrators responded to the so-called ‘legitimacy crisis’ that has beleaguered the international investment regime in the past decade' There are strong rational choice and discursive-based reasons for thinking that these adjudicators would be responsive to the prevailing ‘stakeholder mood’. However, a competing set of legalistic and attitudinal factors may prevent arbitrators from bending towards the arc of enhanced sociological legitimation. This article draws upon a newly created investment treaty arbitration database to analyse the extent and causes of a shift in treaty-based arbitration outcomes. The evidence is suggestive that arbitrators are conditionally reflexive – sensitive to both negative and positive signals from states, especially influential, developed and vocal states.

  • Transnationalizing Rights: International Human Rights Law in Cross-Border
    • Authors: Altwicker T.
      Pages: 581 - 606
      Abstract: AbstractInternational human rights law (IHRL) is still largely state-centred. This is an obstacle when it comes to making cross-border problems such as transboundary environmental harm and transnational surveillance amenable to human rights claims. The state-centredness of IHRL is challenged by three phenomena associated with transnationalization processes: by extraterritorial harmful effects; by complex (multi-stage, multi-level and public–private) cross-border cooperation impacting the enjoyment of rights and, finally, by cross-border conduct of non-state actors with an adverse impact on rights abroad. The central argument defended in this article is that existing IHRL can accommodate these challenges if some of its core concepts are given a ‘transnational interpretation’, thus by complementing the traditional state-centred conception of IHRL. The article discusses transnational interpretations of three core doctrinal concepts, namely jurisdiction, interference and human rights obligations. It is shown that examples for transnational interpretations of international human rights can be found, for example, in the case law of the European Court of Human Rights and some recent European Union and US cooperation treaties.

  • Frontier Cities: The Rise of Local Authorities as an Opportunity for
           International Human Rights Law
    • Authors: Oomen B; Baumgärtel M.
      Pages: 607 - 630
      Abstract: AbstractThe growing influence and self-confidence of local authorities count among the most interesting recent phenomena in global governance. While not entirely oblivious, international law as a field has struggled to get ahead of this dynamic, focusing instead on how to integrate local authorities into static conventional frameworks firmly based on the notion of state sovereignty. However, as a discussion of the global state of affairs and a focus on human rights cities shows, local actors increasingly claim and obtain a key role in the realization of international law. Additionally, they hold important potential to address some of the most pressing challenges to international human rights law concerning its efficacy and legitimacy. This article therefore calls for a proactive approach to the study of local authorities that considers local authorities as a ‘new frontier’ in international law generally and in human rights law specifically. It proposes a critical research agenda for this purpose that could produce important new insights into (i) the continued relevance and legitimacy of human rights as a discourse of governance; (ii) the bearing of domestic constitutional arrangements on the implementation of human rights law and (iii) questions of, and possible shifts in, legal subjecthood in the contexts of ‘state failure’.

  • A Marxism for International Law: A New Agenda
    • Authors: Rasulov A.
      Pages: 631 - 655
      Abstract: AbstractWhat can Marxist theory contribute to the discipline of international legal studies' Can one be a Marxist and an international lawyer at the same time' What place is there for international legal scholarship in Marxist politics' How can Marxist international law theory position itself vis-à-vis other critical legal traditions' Does Marxism have any theoretical gaps that it needs to fill' How does a Marxist approach to international law differ from a New Left one' In this review essay, I propose to explore these and other related questions by examining one of the most important recent contributions to the Marxist debate about international law, the new edition of B.S. Chimni’s International Law and World Order. My aim in these pages is to reveal and bring to the surface its general critical method, some of the less obvious aspects of its underlying theoretical project, its disciplinary ambition as well as its overall place in the broader landscape of contemporary international law thought, including its relationship with other works of Marxist international law theory.

  • A Migrant Song
    • Authors: Kotkowska E.
      Pages: 672 - 672
      Abstract: When I come here, I come home. I do not come from here and, as I leave, it is not from here that I go. Here, I am at large. I wed the lineage of its etymologies. I translate.The natatory fringe. My native tongue. My tactile noun. My ligament: jęzor like jezioro, the lake I speak.I smack my lips and lick off the pronoun. Now, not own. Rather, unlatched. Entirely here.Swallowed. Fluent lung. Listen. Slow down. Exhale the land. I belong to the unbound. Always less. Liquidated. As Algonquin or Illinois. Quicksand sails. I come second.Paint me a name. Unlock the articulations of the tribe. Mishigami migrant. Large gift. Long for the flood. Big water spells.Here come the hands. Utterly speechless. New blood obliterates blood spilled. Polished graves.Clad in stripes, star-eyed slaves. Crave the soil where to plant muscles and cod. Look, child, the water is raked with larch twigs.Proclaim this surface a clean slate. Each crumb sinks to the mudflat. Calm water breaks the bank.I deposit my notes in the sand. The wind pots dry leaves. Do we differ in our desires'I come home each time I come here. I conform my path to your thirst and my thighs shape your current. Glacial ancestors.
