Transnational Terrorism and State Accountability

A New Theory of Prevention

Author: Vincent-Joël Proulx

Every State has an obligation to prevent terrorist attacks emanating from its territory. This proposition stems from various multilateral agreements and UN Security Council resolutions. This study exhaustively addresses the scope of this obligation of prevention and the legal consequences flowing from its violation, so as to provide greater clarity on governments' counterterrorism duties and to enhance State accountability for preventable wrongs. It defines the contents and contours of the obligation while placing critical emphasis on the mechanics of State responsibility. Whether obscured by new technologies like the Internet, the sophisticated cellular structure of some terrorist organisations or convoluted political realities, the level of governmental involvement in terrorist activities is no longer readily discernible in every instance. Furthermore, the prospect of governments waging surrogate warfare through proxies also poses intractable challenges to the mechanism of attribution in the context of State responsibility. This monograph sets out the shortcomings of the extant scheme of State responsibility while identifying a paradigm shift towards more indirect modes of accountability under international law, a trend corroborated by recent State and institutional practice. Drawing on varied legal and theoretical influences, the study devises and prescriptively argues for the implementation of a strict liability-inspired model grounded in the logic of indirect responsibility with a view to enhancing State compliance with counterterrorism obligations. This shifts the policy focus squarely to prevention, while promoting multilateralism and transnational cooperation. Ultimately, the legal and policy sensibilities underlying the book converge into a new theory of prevention in counterterrorism contexts. From the Foreword by Judge Bruno Simma, International Court of Justice "Even if one might disagree with the bases on which the author constructs his argument, the execution of the argument is solid and thorough. The coverage of the major policy arguments and the available legal source materials is equally impressive. Moreover, the author's positions are genuinely progressive and present a fairly innovative solution, in the form of a strict liability mechanism...It behoves all scholars and practitioners of international law with an interest in combating international terrorism to consider the proposals outlined in this book." Transnational Terrorism and State Accountability by Vincent-Joël Proulx has been awarded the 2014 Myres McDougal Prize for best book in Law, Science, and Policy from the Society of Policy Scientists.

Völkerrecht und Landesrecht (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Völkerrecht und Landesrecht Wenn wir nun von einem Verhältnisse zwischen Völker und Landesrecht sprechen, so setzen wir etwas als gegeben vor aus, wae keineswegs ausser Streit steht, und was, wenn es nicht angefochten wird, doch leider nur zu oft unbeachtet bleibt: dass es ein Völkerrecht giebt, und dass dieses Recht etwas ande res ist als Landesrecht. Gäbe es kein Völkerrecht, oder wäre das, was man etwa so nennt kein Gegensatz zum Landesrecht, so hätte unsere Frage keinen Sinn. Gewiss auch wenn man die Existenz eines vom Landesrechts verschiedenen Völker r e c h ts leugnet, wird man doch eine irgendwie beschafleno, meinethalben auf Moral oder Sitte beruhende Ordnung der äusseren Bezie hungen von Staat zu Staat niemals in Abrede stellen, und ganz müssig dürfte auch eine Untersuchung des Verhältnisses dieser Ordnung zum staatlichen Rechte nicht sein. Sie hätte indess gegenüber der allgemeinen Aufgabe, im Rechte den Niederschlag anderer, nicht rechtlicher Normen nachzuweisen die "fontes remotae des Rechts aufzndecken, keinen selbständigen Werth. Ebenso würde es zwar für den Fall, dass sich das Völkerrecht zum Landesrechts etwa nur verhalten sollte wie der Theil zum Ganzen, nicht ganz überflüssig sein, dem Verhältnisse dieses Theile zu anderen Theilen nachzugehen, z. B. Wie man die Beziehungen zwischen Privat und Strafrecht untersucht. Aber immerhin hätte dies eine untergeordnete Bedeutung im Vergleiche mit der Auf gabe, die Beziehungen zweier gesonderter Rechtskomplexe klarzustellen.

The Nature of Customary Law

Legal, Historical and Philosophical Perspectives

Author: Amanda Perreau-Saussine,James B. Murphy

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 1139463217

Category: Law

Page: N.A

Some legal rules are not laid down by a legislator but grow instead from informal social practices. In contract law, for example, the customs of merchants are used by courts to interpret the provisions of business contracts; in tort law, customs of best practice are used by courts to define professional responsibility. Nowhere are customary rules of law more prominent than in international law. The customs defining the obligations of each State to other States and, to some extent, to its own citizens, are often treated as legally binding. However, unlike natural law and positive law, customary law has received very little scholarly analysis. To remedy this neglect, a distinguished group of philosophers, historians and lawyers has been assembled to assess the nature and significance of customary law. The book offers fresh insights on this neglected and misunderstood form of law.

Author: John Rawls

Publisher: Walter de Gruyter

ISBN: 3110898535

Welche Bedingungen lassen Völker gerecht und friedlich zusammenleben? Unter welchen Umständen sind Kriege gerechtfertigt? Welche Leitlinien müssen gegeben sein für Organisationen, die eine gerechte Gesellschaft von Völkern mit gleichen Rechten herzustellen vermögen? In acht Grundsätzen für eine gerechte internationale Ordnung entwickelt der amerikanische Philosoph John Rawls einen hypothetischen "Vertrag der Gesellschaft der Völker". Das jüngste Buch von John Rawls ist nach A Theory of Justice 1971, dt. 1975) und Political Liberalism (1993, dt. 1998) ein weiteres wichtiges Werk des bedeutenden amerikanischen Philosophen. Die Originalausgabe (The Law of Peoples, 1999) hat zu heftigen Kontroversen geführt.

The Spanish Origin of International Law

Scott, James Brown. The Spanish Origin of International Law. Francisco De Vitoria and His Law of Nations. London: Humphrey Milford, 1934. 19a, 288, clviii pp. Frontispiece and portrait. Reprinted 2000 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 00-036835. ISBN 1-58477-110-0. Cloth. $90. * Francisco de Vitoria [c. 1483-1546] is widely considered to be a founder of international law. Scott holds that Vitoria's 16th century school of international law and his important Reflectiones, De Indis Noviter Inventis and De Jure Belli (the text of these are included in the appendix) are in fact the origin of the law of nations, which was to become the international law of Christendom and the world at large. In Vitoria's writings described herein he held that pagans had the right to freedom and property, declared slavery to be unsound, upheld the rights of Indians, questioned the Spanish conquest of the New World in the time immediately following Columbus' discovery of America which gave rise to his thesis that the community of nations transcends Christendom. Walker, Oxford Companion to Law 1279-1280.

Gerechtigkeit für Igel

ISBN: 3518780204

Page: 813

»Der Fuchs weiß viele Dinge, aber der Igel weiß eine große Sache.« Der griechische Dichter Archilochos hat diesen Satz formuliert, Isaiah Berlin hat ihn mit seinem Tolstoi-Essay berühmt gemacht. Aber was ist diese »eine große Sache«? Ronald Dworkin liefert eine Antwort: Es sind Werte in all ihren Erscheinungsformen. Wenn wir verstehen wollen, was Wahrheit und Schönheit sind, was dem Leben Sinn verleiht, was die Moral fordert und die Gerechtigkeit verlangt, so müssen wir der Spur jener moralischen Einstellungen nachgehen, die menschliches Denken, Fühlen und Handeln durchdringen und zu einer Einheit formen. »Gerechtigkeit für Igel« ist eines jener Bücher, wie es sie in Zeiten der Füchse – der Spezialisten und Skeptiker – immer seltener gibt: eines, das aus einem einzigen Prinzip eine ganze Welt erklären und zugleich Orientierung geben möchte.
