  • L’accord commercial entre le Canada et l’Union européenne prévoit-il
           une résolution des différends par arbitrage ou règlement
           judiciaire '

    • Abstract: Andrea K. Bjorklund and Jonathan Brosseau
      In October 2015, the European Union (EU) launched its Trade for All strategy, which specified that the European Commission would from then on include in its modernized trade agreements a “public investment court system” consisting of a Tribunal of First Instance and an Appeals Tribunal that would operate like traditional courts. An Investment Court System (ICS) has since been integrated into the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement, the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement, the EU-Singapore Free Trade Agreement and the EU-Mexico Global Agreement. Is the ICS really a court, as the signatory parties contend' Based on legal and political theory arguments, it appears that the ICS represents a hybrid between arbitration and judicial settlement in international law. More precisely, it represents a further-institutionalized form of investment arbitration. The ICS is based on the bilateral and narrow consent of the disputing parties, adopts the idea of having a neutral representative on the bench (albeit one more distant from the parties in the specific dispute at hand), and is constituted in a way primarily to do justice as between the parties rather than to ensure the consistent development of investment law broadly. It departs from typical arbitral proceedings by incorporating more robust and detailed procedural rules and ethical safeguards for decision-makers, but it falls short of being a full-fledged court.
       
  • PROTECTION DE L’ENVIRONNEMENT ET EXPROPRIATION INDIRECTE DANS LES
           ACCORDS MÉGA-RÉGIONAUX

    • Abstract: Kintxo Freiss
      The issue of environmental protection has become a recurrent theme for the negotiation of economic and international investment agreements. It has often been linked to the notion of indirect expropriation. However, indirect expropriation is a complex notion. It raises the question of its interpretation, and thus of the definition given by international investment law. This article analyzes the indirect expropriation notion as set out by the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), considering that these two treaties illustrate a form of incremental evolution of international investment law, due to the presence of an interplay between arbitration practice and the negotiation of international agreements. While these treaties have been strongly criticized by a large segment of civil society and by part of the political class, the results of this research underline that these agreements result in a better framing of indirect expropriation, with the objective of establishing a fair balance between the pursuit of legitimate policies, including environmental protection, and the protection of foreign investment. Indeed, CETA and the TPP enunciate clear and specific rules on indirect expropriation, which limit extensive interpretations of this notion, and guarantee the exercise of state regulatory authority. However, several flaws persistently remain, and the Parties to the agreements could certainly go further in order to favor better leeway for states to protect their environment.
       
  • Le Brexit au regard des droits des traités et des organisations
           internationales

    • Abstract: Thierry Garcia
      The purpose and interest of this article is to examine the impact of Brexit on the respective relationship between the international legal orders, that of the European Union and that of the United Kingdom with regard to the rights of treaties and international organizations. In space and time, a triple movement can be observed. Indeed, the application of the law of treaties under the prism of international organizations dedicated by the Brexit, the participation of the United Kingdom in international organizations affected by this law of treaties and finally a modified application of the law of treaties in the light of international organizations after Brexit, will be successively studied.
       
  • L’IMMIGRATION IRRÉGULIÈRE DANS L’ESPACE EURO- MÉDITERRANÉEN ET LA
           PROTECTION DES DROITS FONDAMENTAUX

    • Abstract: Azzouz Kerdoun
      The question of irregular immigration is shaking up the countries on both shores of the Mediterranean today, because the migration phenomenon generates many human tragedies at each crossing of the sea, unacceptable for the conscience of humanity. The reality is that this immigration, because of its “clandestine” nature, continues to fuel the debates, both at European and Maghreb levels, or even at the African level. For Africa, from which successive migrant waves leave, it is a loss of valid arms for development. Irregular migration is of great concern to political leaders because of its scale and impact on transit and host countries. It would be the cause of social, political and security problems. The fear is that this immigration, considered as “risk-bearing”, constitutes a threat and a danger for the stability, the social cohesion and the identity of the host societies. This article analyzes the situation of migrants who are at odds with national laws on entry and residence in the receiving countries, and notes violations of their human rights at the stages of their trip. This requires legal protection in consideration of the human person, in accordance with the international law principles that recognize and outline rights for migrants and refugees.
       
  • La gestation pour autrui : l’influence des droits fondamentaux
           européens sur le droit international privé

    • Abstract: Camille Pons
      Gestational surrogacy is the act of a woman carrying a child on behalf of another person. The prohibition of surrogacy in numerous jurisdictions, and on the contrary, its acceptance by others, lead individuals wishing to have a child to benefit from the diversity of legal systems by resorting to it abroad. Whether states accept such a process or not, they are confronted with the question of the fate of children born from gestational surrogacy once the intended parents return to their country of origin. This reproductive technology severely tests international private law, which struggles to find appropriate solutions. To these difficulties are added European fundamental rights, for which the rationality differs greatly from the one guiding international private law. The question of gestational surrogacy fully illustrates this collision of rationalities and the numerous technical and epistemological points of friction between both legal regimes. A retrospective analysis of the apprehension surrounding gestational surrogacy demonstrated by legal systems showcases the original exclusivism of international private law’s reasoning towards this question, before finding a recent prevalence of the logic of European fundamental rights. A certain number of obstacles brought about by the techniques of international private law are thus warded off to offer a recognition of family situations by rendering biological reality the cornerstone of recognition. However, the irruption of fundamental rights in the resolution of cross-border disputes on gestational surrogacy causes difficulties related to the respect of national public orders and to the respect of the human rights of the different persons involved in this process. Other avenues must be explored in order to offer an appropriate regulatory framework.
       
  • ARAYA V. NEVSUN RESOURCES: REMEDIES FOR VICTIMS OF HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS
           COMMITTED BY CANADIAN MINING COMPANIES ABROAD

    • Abstract: Jolane T. Lauzon
      In November 2017, the British Columbia Court of Appeal (BCCA) published its decision in the case Araya v. Nevsun Resources, dismissing the appeal filed by Nevsun, and allowing the lawsuit to move forward to the merits stage of the procedure. This decision was ground-breaking since the plaintiffs were suing Nevsun Resources, a Canadian mining company, for its alleged complicity in the use of forced labor, slavery, torture, inhuman or degrading treatment, and crimes against humanity at the Bisha Mine in Eritrea, a mine belonging to Nevsun. In its decision, the BCCA rejected the three main arguments put forward by Nevsun to get the case dismissed: (1) the forum non conveniens doctrine; (2) the Act of State doctrine and (3) the lack of private law cause of action against corporations for the violations of customary international law principles. In this context, this article offers an analysis of the most significant cases brought before Canadian Courts in regard to Canadian mining companies’ corporate social responsibility. It also relies on two influential cases from the U.S. Supreme Court: Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum and Jesner v. Arab Bank. Finally, it looks at the common challenges faced by foreign victims when they seek to bring lawsuits against transnational corporations and it briefly suggests that common law courts should adopt a new duty of care to address businesses’ corporate liability for violations of human rights.
       
  • Le principe de consentement libre, préalable et éclairé et son
           application dans la collecte des données du patrimoine culturel
           immateriel

    • Abstract: Wang Li
      The principle of “free, prior and informed consent” (FPIC) has gone through a polarized evolution since its emergence, from the entry control of dangerous products to a tool for exit control of biological resources, such as communities’ cultural resources, with the adoption of the Convention on Biological Diversity’s Nagoya Protocol. This evolution is consistent with the emergence of the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage’s notion of intangible cultural heritage, for which the objective is also to guarantee a legal protection for communities based in international law. However, within this process for the protection of intangible cultural heritage, in particular as concerns data collection, communities do not always escape the danger of seeing their voices be ignored. Sometimes, they are confronted, on the one hand, to an official rhetoric on their culture to which they do not adhere, and on the other hand, to digitized data collection that may lead to cultural sensitivity problems. In this context, the FPIC principle can offer a protection to these communities, reduce the risks of a distorted and culturally offensive use, and to a certain degree, avoid the disclosure of cultural secrets, at times also possibly constituting commercial secrets. Furthermore, states can also benefit from this principle to decrease the risks of interference in the accomplishment of their heritage protection mission. Today, considering the tension surrounding the right to self-determination, recourse to national legislative provisions still appears as the preferred mean for the implementation of the FPIC principle in the field of intangible cultural heritage. To better implement the “exit” control this principle offers, states should define clear procedures and conditions for the unveiling of information, through a “top-down” process in international law, and establish the FPIC principle as an obligation of result within their national legislations.

  • JOURNALISTIC FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND CONTEMPT PROCEEDINGS AT THE
           INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL TRIBUNAL FOR THE FORMER YUGOSLAVIA

    • Abstract: John Cubbon
      The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) has addressed the limits to journalistic freedom of expression more frequently and in more detail than other tribunals that resemble it. In its Rules of Procedure and Evidence a broadly common law concept of contempt of the Tribunal was adopted. The jurisprudence of the ICTY establishes that a violation of a court order as such constitutes an interference with its administration of justice and that it is not for a party or a third person to determine when an order “is serving the International Tribunal’s administration of justice”. The Tribunal has also held that the disclosure of confidential evidence by another third party does not mean either that this information is no longer protected or that the relevant court order has been de facto lifted or that its violation will not interfere with the Tribunal’s administration of justice. In deciding whether a restriction of the right of a journalist to freedom of expression was justified, the Appeals Chamber considered whether it was provided by law and whether it was proportionate and necessary for the protection of public order. The jurisprudence of the ICTY in this area is relevant to the practice of other international and internationalized criminal courts because of the similarity of their rules and the comparable impediments to the enforcement of their orders.
       
  • FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND THE “MARGIN OF APPRECIATION” OR “MARGIN OF
           DISCRETION” DOCTRINE

    • Abstract: Marie Ghantous
      When an international court decides to keep certain information confidential and orders a ban of any publicity upon them, does it have to abide by the requirements of necessity and proportionality' These requirements have been established by the different human rights conventions and by the jurisprudence of the human rights courts, and human rights bodies. However, for the evaluation of the requirements of necessity and proportionality, states dispose of certain margin of appreciation. International criminal courts might invoke the margin of appreciation doctrine for the same reasons. This paper explores the doctrine of the margin of appreciation recognized to states while assessing a situation before curtailing freedom of expression. After exploring the margin of appreciation doctrine, its justification, the criticism that it faces and the scope of its application, it appeared that it is a well-established and well-accepted doctrine, despite its disadvantages. The relevant case law was then studied in an attempt to come up with a theory concerning its extension to international criminal courts. However, the studied literature or case law was inconclusive. There could be a legal gap in this field. In any case, it seems that international law offers no protection of individuals’ rights at this level in particular. The only recourse open is an appeal, but before the same court. It is clear that checks and balance procedures are not available in what concerns international criminal courts. If a state has a margin of discretion, at least we know that internal remedies and procedures are available, and that they hinder abuse attempts, which is not the case in international criminal courts. This is perhaps a weakness that makes peoples rather uncomfortable about international criminal justice despite the huge relief to see international crimes tried and punished.
       
  • ORDRE PUBLIC PROTECTION AS LEGITIMATE AIM FOR FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
           RESTRICTION IN THE INTERNATIONAL LEGAL ORDER

    • Abstract: Marie Ghantous
      The right to freedom of expression (FOE) is one of the cornerstones of the rule of law, but it is not an absolute right. It can be restricted on specific conditions. International criminal justice, in its fight against war crimes, and more recently against terrorism, by issuing contempt orders restricting FOE, reveals at first sight a disrespect of this fundamental right. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the legality of the restrictions imposed by international criminal courts, according to the international standards set by international human rights conventions. The applicability of the principles enshrined in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, in particular the restrictive circumstances allowing limitation of FOE before international criminal courts, raises doubts. Restriction of FOE for ordre public protection, in particular, is of great interest. This notion of ordre public appeared in recent international case-law but it is quite difficult to pin down. In an attempt to define the notion of ordre public, this paper made first the distinction between ordre public and neighbouring notions, especially with public policy notion and tried to find out if there was a recognized and identified international public order, and if jus cogens and public order had the same meaning or could be interchanged. Here also, few distinctions with neighbouring notions was conducted in order to answer to the final question which is to know if the administration of justice was part of the international ordre public or a jus cogens norm. As a conclusion, it was found that international human rights conventions are not directly applicable to international criminal courts and that their extension to such sector requires an additional effort from the lawmakers; and that administration of justice was not a peremptory norm of international law; it is not part of the international ordre public and cannot serve as legal ground for FOE restriction.
