  • Judgments Convention: Application to Governments
    • Abstract: The Hague Judgments Convention 2019 makes the classic distinction between private law matters within its scope (civil or commercial matters) and public law matters outside its scope. It also follows the same position in relation to State immunity used in the Hague Choice of Court Convention 2005 (see Art. 2(5) in 2019 and 2(6) in 2005). The innovative parts of the 2019 Convention relate to the exclusions from scope in Article 2 relating to the armed forces, law enforcement activities and unilateral debt restructuring. Finally, in Article 19, the Convention creates a new declaration system permitting States to widen the exclusion from scope to some private law judgments concerning a State, or a State agency or a natural person acting for the State or a Government agency. This article gives guidance on the correct Treaty interpretation of all these matters taking full account of the work of the Hague Informal Working Group dealing with the application of the Convention to Governments and the other relevant supplementary means of interpretation referred to in Article 32 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties.

  • The Public Policy Exception Under the New 2019 HCCH Judgments Convention
    • Abstract: The public policy exception is inherently a fluid device. Its content is basically left to each State. A shared public policy is an exception. Therefore, the obligation of uniform interpretation, as provided in Article 20 of the 2019 Judgments Convention, will have an inherent limit here. Moreover, the Convention leaves some important issues, including procedure, to national rules. Each requested State retains a discretion to invoke the Convention grounds of refusal in a concrete case, and on whether to make an ex officio inquiry or have the parties prove those refusal grounds. The Convention also provides for the concrete applications of the public policy exception, following the model of the 2005 Choice of Court Convention. Here, a purely grammatical reading may create some peripheral problems, especially with the specific defences of conflicting judgments and parallel proceedings. Solutions may be found in the method of purposive interpretation and some general principles, particularly the evasion of the law and the abuse of rights, before resorting to the public policy defence.

  • Consumer Protection Under the HCCH 2019 Judgments Convention
    • Abstract: The Hague Conference on Private International Law has signed the Final Act of a new international convention designed to circumvent the usual obstacles to the international circulation of judgments. The 2019 Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Civil or Commercial Matters aims at mitigating uncertainties and risks associated with international trade and other civil relationships by setting forth a simple and safe system according to which foreign judgments can easily circulate from country to country. The purpose of this article is to record the historical moment of the negotiations that took place at The Hague Conference, as well as to pinpoint how consumer cases will be dealt with by the Convention, as regulated in Article 5(2).

  • Article 14 of the Judgments Convention: The Essential Reaffirmation of the
           Non-discrimination Principle in a Globalized Twenty-First Century
    • Abstract: The 2019 Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Civil or Commercial Matters includes a non-discrimination disposition in Article 14, according to which there shall be no security, bond or deposit required from a party on the sole ground that such a party is a foreign national or is not domiciled or resident in the State in which enforcement is sought. It also deals with the enforceability of orders for payment of costs in situations where the precedent disposition applied, and lays down an ‘opt-out’ mechanism for those Contracting States that may not wish to apply that principle. This article frames the discussion of the non-discrimination principle in the wider context of previous private international law instruments as well as from the perspectives of access to justice, human rights and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), understanding that its inclusion in the 2019 Convention was an important, inescapable and necessary achievement.

  • Notification as a Ground for Refusal
    • Abstract: The Hague Judgments Convention, which facilitates the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments, provides for several grounds for the refusal of recognition, including refusal based on insufficient notification. While this ground for refusal of the Judgments Convention seems quite similar to those applied in other conventions, the comparison shows that there are several differences between the Judgments Convention and other texts of reference, both with respect to the context of application as well as with respect to the details of the wording. The optional nature of the grounds for refusal under the Judgments Convention indicates that its primary focus is the free circulation of judgments, and not the protection of the defendant. The latter’s protection is left to the discretion of the state of recognition: a sign of trust amongst the negotiators of the Judgments Convention, but also a risk for the defendant. Practice will show whether the focus of the negotiators was justified.

  • Jurisdiction and Judgments Recognition at the Hague Conference: Choices
           Made, Treaties Completed, and the Path Ahead
    • Abstract: The article begins with the context in which a Hague Convention on Jurisdiction and the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments was first proposed in 1992. It then traces the history of the Hague negotiations, both from within those negotiations and in regard to important developments outside the negotiations, through the completion of the 2005 Convention on Choice of Court Agreements and the 2019 Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Civil or Commercial Matters. The article ends with comments on whether it is advisable to now resume discussion of a separate convention on direct jurisdiction.

  • The Exclusion of Privacy Matters from the Judgments Convention
    • Abstract: In July 2019, after many years of work and lengthy negotiations, the Members of the Hague Conference on Private International Law concluded the historic 2019 HCCH Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Judgments in Civil or Commercial Matters (the ‘Judgments Convention’). One issue of particular focus in the later phases of the negotiations of the Convention was what, if any, judgments ruling on privacy law matters should be permitted to circulate under the Convention. Having acknowledged that privacy is an evolving, broad and ill-defined area of the law and that there are obvious differences in the development and operation of privacy laws and policies in legal systems globally, the Members of the Diplomatic Session on the Judgments Convention determined to exclude privacy matters from the scope of the Convention under Article 2(1)(l). The purpose of this short article is to describe how and why the Diplomatic Session decided to exclude privacy matters from the Convention and to offer some observations on the intended scope of that exclusion.

  • The Judgments Convention: Some Open Questions
    • Abstract: On the 2nd of July 2019 the negotiations on the HCCH Judgments Convention were successfully concluded. Since then, scholars’ attention concerning this new instrument has grown exponentially. This contribution seeks to explore some of the open issues that were discussed in the negotiation process but remained open in the final text, such as, in particular, the application of the Convention to pecuniary penalties (2) and negative obligations (4), as well as the definition of the res judicata effect (3).

  • The Process of Strengthening the Human Rights Treaty Body System: The Road
           towards Effectiveness or Inefficiency'
    • Abstract: This article attempts to provide an overall assessment of the current process of strengthening the human rights treaty body system in the light of the implementation of UN General Assembly Resolution 68/268 of 9 April 2014. While demonstrating the positive developments achieved so far, the authors examine the current challenges of the strengthening process, namely the controversial effects of the solution to the system’s under-resourcing, and the unification tendencies that aggravate the existing deficiencies in the treaty bodies’ work and pose new problems for the system’s effectiveness. Through such an examination as well as an analysis of the positions and proposals of the key stakeholders of the system and academics on the functioning of the current and future treaty body system, the authors forecast the potential outcomes of the 2020 UN General Assembly comprehensive review of the progress achieved since the adoption of Resolution 68/268. The article points to the two possible options for the future of the system: (1) the smooth fine-tuning of the resolution with prioritization being given by the treaty bodies to their activities followed by adequate support in the form of financial and human resources, (2) substantial structural changes in the system’s work through the decisions of the meetings of the States parties on amending the treaties. While arguing for the first option, the authors conclude that there is a need for a proper assessment of the current state of affairs in all segments of the system with due regard being given to the views of all stakeholders before reaching any decision on the need for further changes to be introduced in its work.

  • Primal Scene to Anthropocene: Narrative and Myth in International
           Environmental Law
    • Abstract: In recent years much jurisprudential affection has coalesced around the concept of the Anthropocene. International lawyers have enlisted among the ranks of humanities and social science authors embracing this proposed scientific time category, and putting it to work. This essay draws on sources from a range of fields including legal anthropology and critical legal theory in re-examining the reception of the Anthropocene in international law, focusing on its mythical qualities. We demonstrate how the Anthropocene both reinforces and meshes perfectly with the three narrative pillars of contemporary international environmental law: evolutionary progress; universal evaluations of nature and constructions of legal subjectivity; and legal monism. The Anthropocene, like few ideas in modern scholarship, is quite expressly a tale of origins explaining and legitimating its narrators’ place in the universe. Joining signposts such as The Tragedy of the Commons, the Myth of the Anthropocene embeds collective memories eclipsing the need to reconsider complex and contested histories in understanding the contemporary roles of law in mediating people’s relations with nature. In response, we call for a more inclusive account of environmental law that draws on diversity rather than universality, with particular sensitivity to those perspectives that are inadvertently excluded from the Anthropocene discourse.

  • The End of the Road: State Liability for Acts of UN Peacekeeping
           Contingents After the Dutch Supreme Court’s Judgment in Mothers of
           Srebrenica (2019)
    • Abstract: This article provides an analysis of the Dutch Supreme Court judgment in the Mothers of Srebrenica case, placing it in its context, and comparing it with earlier and related decisions, in particular the judgments in the cases of Nuhanović and Mustafić. The Mothers of Srebrenica is a foundation established to represent the interests of the approximately 6000 surviving relatives of the victims of the fall of Srebrenica during the conflict in the former Yugoslavia (1995). The foundation holds the Netherlands responsible for not having done enough to protect the victims of the Srebrenica genocide. This contribution addresses the attribution of the conduct of the United Nations peacekeeping contingent to the troop-contributing State (the Netherlands), followed by the wrongfulness of the peacekeepers’ conduct and the State’s attendant liability for damages suffered by the victims. It is argued that the Dutch State’s international responsibility was only engaged because of the exceptional circumstances present in Srebrenica at the time. In the ordinary course of events, the liability of troop-contributing States is unlikely to be engaged if the Supreme Court’s review standard were to be applied.

  • The Group Insurance Contract in Private International Law
    • Abstract: The provisions on obligations under insurance relationships included in Article 7 of the Rome I Regulation are relatively complicated. However, although individual insurance contracts have their own legal regime in each Member State, only a few national legislators have decided to lay down the consequences of concluding a group insurance agreement. The Rome I Regulation does not include any special conflict of laws rule concerning group insurance contracts, which has been criticized in the literature on the subject.

  • The Withdrawal of African States from the ICC: Good, Bad or
           Irrelevant'
    • Abstract: Since 2009, there has been a serious antiparathesis between the African Union (AU) and the International Criminal Court (ICC), which, according to the AU, has principally concerned unjustified ICC prosecutions against African dignitaries. This has led certain African ICC parties to announce their withdrawal from it, while the AU adopted the so-called ‘ICC Withdrawal Strategy’ in January 2017. This article analyses the background to and the content of the antiparathesis, it examines the consequences of the African parties’ withdrawal from the ICC as regards the large-scale impunity in Africa, and it proposes the creation of ICC regional circuit chambers as a possible solution to realign relations between the AU and the ICC. Specifically, the proposal suggests the creation of several ICC regional circuit chambers, each being responsible for the alleged crimes committed in the territory of ICC parties belonging to a specific continent. Pertinent solutions to the institutional and practical issues arising from this proposal are offered.

  • Revisiting the Matthew and Hunter Islands Dispute in Light of the Recent
           Chagos Advisory Opinion and Some Other Relevant Cases: An Evaluation of
           Vanuatu’s Claims relating to the Right to Self-Determination,
           Territorial Integrity, Unlawful Occupation and State Responsibility Under
           International Law
    • Abstract: This article examines the legal implications of the Chagos Advisory Opinion and some other relevant cases on the Matthew and Hunter Islands dispute. In doing so, the piece attempts to evaluate Vanuatu’s claims relating to the right to self-determination of the people of New Hebrides (Ni-Vans since 1980), the territorial integrity of New Hebrides/Vanuatu and the alleged unlawful occupation of the Matthew and Hunter Islands by France. First, the article submits that by transferring the administration of these islands to New Caledonia in 1976 France may have violated the territorial integrity of Vanuatu and the right to self-determination of its people. The article then considers the competing claims of sovereignty over these Islands and argues that the right to self-determination is likely to prevail over France’s claims of, inter alia, effectivités. The article submits therefore that France may be under an obligation to cease its unlawful occupation of these Islands.

  • Re-thinking the Authority of the UN Security Council to Refer Nationals of
           Non-party States to the ICC
    • Abstract: Upon its inception on 17 July 1998, Africa had the largest number of states supporting the ICC. Fast forward to 2018, Africa now represents the single largest regional bloc threatening mass withdrawal from the ICC. The genesis of the sour relationship between the ICC and African states has its roots in one main issue—the indictment and arrest warrant issued against President Omar al Bashir of Sudan. That arrest warrant raised two main legal issues—the international law immunity of sitting heads of state from criminal prosecutions in international criminal tribunals, and the legality of ICC jurisdiction over nationals of a non-party state to the Rome Statute. The former issue generated a great deal of debate in the early days of the ICC but the latter has received less attention and it is the focus of this article. One of the ways the ICC can assume jurisdiction in a certain situation is if this situation is referred to the ICC by the UN Security Council. The legal basis of such a referral under international law warrants closer examination. Some commentators argue that the UN Security Council has the authority to confer jurisdiction over nationals of non-party states on the ICC. In this article, I argue that the authority of the ICC to assume jurisdiction over nationals of a non-state party on the basis of a UN Security Council referral rests on grounds of questionable legality in international law.
