A leading casebook on foreign relations law, authored by two widely cited and experienced scholars, Foreign Relations Law: Cases and Materials, Sixth Edition examines the law that regulates the conduct of contemporary U.S. foreign relations. It offers a compelling mix of cases, statutes, and executive branch materials, as well as extensive notes and questions and discussion of relevant historical background.
This book reappraises the constitutional fundamentals of EU foreign relations law. The essays in the book examine and reassess the basic principles of EU foreign relations law that have emerged over 50 years of incremental Treaty-based and judicial development and explore the particular character of the EU's "external constitution". They have been written against a background of change and debate: the deliberation over the character of the appropriate constitutional framework which has surrounded the drafting of the Constitutional and Reform Treaties, the increasingly cross-pillar nature of much EU external action, and renewed interest in the accountability of foreign relations policy and practice to democratic and judicial review within and without the EU. This collection will be of interest not only to EU foreign relations law specialists but also to those concerned with broader constitutional issues within EU law. In exploring the legal context in which the EU seeks to develop an international identity, and to structure and execute policies at the international level, the collection will also interest those working in international relations.
This paperback, break-out edition, which focuses solely on foreign relations law, is derived from the popular and seminal casebook, Foreign Relations and National Security Law (4th ed. 2012). Full treatment is given to the nature and structure of the field, customary international law and treaties as sources of law in the United States, the power of the purse, federalism, and justiciability. Key issues concerning the war power are covered, but less than in the hardback edition. Issues relating to the investigation and prosecution of threats to national security, and the control of information relating to national security, are not addressed.
This seminal casebook helped pioneer the field of U.S. foreign relations law. The 5th edition provides comprehensive treatment of the distribution of foreign relations powers within the federal government; customary international law and treaties as sources of law in the United States; the war powers; and Congress's power of the purse, federalism, and the justiciability of foreign relations cases. Particular emphasis is placed upon historical sources, materials which document the practices of the executive branch, and key doctrines of international law. Practice exercises are provided to stimulate student engagement.
Grundthese des Buches ist, dass ein Paradigmenwechsel stattgefunden hat, der den Menschen zum primaren Volkerrechtssubjekt macht. Diese These wird vor dem Hintergrund der Ideengeschichte und Dogmatik der Volkerrechtspersonlichkeit des Menschen entfaltet und auf die Rechtspraxis in zahlreichen Teilrechtsgebieten, angefangen vom Recht der internationalen Verantwortung uber das Recht des bewaffneten Konflikts, das Recht der Katastrophenhilfe, das internationale Strafrecht, das internationale Umweltrecht, das Konsularrecht und das Recht des diplomatischen Schutzes, das internationale Arbeitsrecht, das Fluchtlingsrecht bis hin zum internationalen Investitionsschutzrecht gestutzt. Der neue Volkerrechtsstatus des Menschen wird mit dem Begriff des subjektiven internationalen Rechts auf den Punkt gebracht.
This set examines treaty and war powers, foreign trade laws, antiboycott legislation, arms export controls, terrorism and foreign development assistance. Also included is published and unpublished Congressional documentation.
The present book invites the reader to rethink some questions raised in EU external relations law in the light of recent developments in the case law of the Court of Justice, from the perspective of the constitutional foundations of the Union. The various chapters invite the reader to take a look at the balance between the specific legal regime for EU external action and the constitutional fundamentals of the EU legal order such as: the principles of conferral, loyalty, and institutional balance, as well as the rule of law, democracy, and fundamental rights protection. The accommodation between specificity and fundamental principles is, thus, a transversal constitutional issue.
