Examining the relationship between the obligation to fight terrorism and the obligation to protect human rights
That terrorism infringes people’s human rights is something that everybody knows, especially after 9/11. However, terrorism does not have the monopoly on violating human rights. Counter-terrorism, consisting of different methods to fight terrorism, infringes human rights as well. While fighting terrorism, human rights ought to be respected. However, States do not always live up to this obligation. Next to an examination of the relationship between the obligation to fight terrorism and the obligation to protect human rights, this book describes the way in which counter-terrorism measures, specifically blacklisting and targeted killings, touch upon people’s human rights. The second part of this book includes the most important documents with regard to counter-terrorism and human rights.

Comprehensive study on the Iraqi Special Tribunal for crimes against humanity and the case of Saddam Hussein
Saddam Hussein, both in life and death one of the most controversial prominent leaders of the Arab world. Fiercely loved and hated, his name will be remembered for centuries in the history of mankind. His legacy is two fold; there are ones that still admire his achievements and leadership with respect, honor and loyalty. However for most others, his legacy symbolizes fear, tyranny and hypocrisy. Along with 11 other senior Baathist leaders, he was handed over legally (though not physically) to the interim Iraqi government to stand trial for crimes against humanity and other offences. A few weeks later, he was charged by the Iraqi Special Tribunal with crimes committed against residents of Dujail in 1982, following a failed assassination attempt against him. Specific charges included the murder of 148 people, torture of women and children and the illegal arrest of 399 others. On 5 November 2006, Saddam Hussein was found guilty of crimes against humanity and sentenced to death by hanging. The verdict and sentencing was appealed but subsequently affirmed by Iraq’s Supreme Court of Appeals. On 30 December 2006, Saddam was hanged.
This book illustrates the work of the Iraqi Special Tribunal and presents the cases brought before the court.

Evaluating China's foreign exchange arrangements under the IMF and WTO
There has been a growing concern in recent years over China’s alleged unilateral and deliberate intervention in the foreign exchange market to prevent the appreciation of its currency relative to other currencies. By engaging in the alleged practice known as “currency manipulation”, China’s critics argue that its maintenance of an artificially undervalued currency in relation to other currencies provides an unfair competitive advantage to Chinese exporters, thereby thwarting global trade. As a result, the consistency of China’s exchange rate arrangements and foreign exchange market intervention with its obligations, namely those under the International Monetary Fund and the World Trade Organization have been called into question. Although exchange rate matters are traditionally viewed as falling under the jurisdiction of the IMF, the trade distorting effects of China’s exchange rate policies have resulted in calls from lawyers, economists, industry and lawmakers alike, demanding remedial trade measures under the auspices of the WTO. By engaging in a historically and empirically informed legal analysis, Undervalued and Manipulated explores whether China’s foreign exchange arrangements and foreign exchange market intervention are consistent with its obligations under the Articles of Agreement of the IMF and whether international trade measures under the auspices of the WTO can be used as an appropriate response to quell China’s alleged manipulation of its currency.

Investigating the origins and foundations of the global anti-money laundering policy
In the past two decades money laundering has been presented by policy makers as a grave global threat to the world economy, undermining its foundations while allowing trillions of dollars in dirty money to slip into the upperworld economy. In order to fend off this threat, the authorities put into place a global mechanism of surveillance and control, imposing heavy multi-million dollar burdens on the financial industry, ultimately to be paid by customers. Despite these efforts and strengthened state control, the threat still appears to be the same as it was 20 years ago. Moreover, the real menace now appears instead to be the result of the behaviour of respectable, but recklessly operating, bankers. What is going on?
This work critically investigates the origins and foundations of the global anti-money laundering policy. It describes its obscure inception and exposes the incoherent arguments being accepted as "conventional wisdom" that policy makers use to introduce new and stricter regulations. Providing a step-by-step analysis of the current fear-driven policy, the author makes clear that this important subject needs to be addressed within a reasoned and realistic framework. This book makes the reader aware of the serious consequences of a policy that appears to have lost its sense of proportionality and to be based on poorly substantiated fear.

The most complete study of the UNIDROIT Principles’ provisions on gross disparity and hardship
The 20th Century witnessed many wars, natural disasters, political and financial crises, widespread use of information and communication technologies and global trade expansion. These political, economical and social events had some effects on legal systems both in national and international levels. As these events altered the equilibrium of many contracts, legal institutions that regard the restoration of the equilibrium of reciprocal contractual undertakings were developed in the last Century; such as lésion, unconscionability, unfairness, gabin, eccessiva onerosità sopravvenuta, imprévision, Wegfall der Geschäfts-grundlage, işlem temelinin çökmesi and hardship.
In this work, the author studies these institutions in the context of national, international and transnational laws from a comparative point of view. The author illustrates how the legal remedies are applied in periods of political and financial crises in the context of various legal systems. This book also provides the most complete study of the UNIDROIT Principles’ provisions on gross disparity and hardship that include also the relevant arbitral case law.

An introduction to the life of Milosevic and all relevant court documents
Slobodan Milosevic served as the President of Serbia from 1989 to 1997 and then as President of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) from 1997 to 2000. From its foundation in 1990, Milosevic was the leader of Serbia`s Socialist Party and one of the key figures in the Yugoslav wars during the 1990s and Kosovo War in 1999. Milosevic was indicted in May 1999, during the Kosovo War, by the UN`s International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia for crimes against humanity in Kosovo (ICTY). Charges of violating the laws or customs of war, grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions in Croatia and Bosnia and genocide in Bosnia were added a year and a half later. He conceded defeat and resigned after demonstrations, following the disputed presidential election of October 2000. Within nine months of his ousting, he was arrested by security forces in Yugoslavia on charges of corruption whilst in power, and within a very short time, was extradited to stand trial in The Hague. At the ICTY, Milosevic conducted his own defence. Milosevic was charged with, amongst others, genocide, deportation, murder, extermination and torture. With just fifty hours of testimony left before the conclusion of the trial, he died in March 2006 after five years in prison. On 14 March 2006, the Trial Chamber terminated proceedings against the accused.
This book contains a short introduction to the life of Milosevic and all relevant court documents, including the complete indictments for Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo.

A thought-provoking study on US immigration policy and debate in the 20th century
How can the United States, a country founded on universal human liberty and at its historical founding was most alert to the evils of tyranny, betray the ideals of freedom and justice with which just decades prior it had crowned the immigrant experience? How can public debate in Congress take the political position that rights and liberties are now reserved to citizens, endorsing oppression and human suffering on a vast scale even if this political position is not reflective of the vast majority?
This book brings to light US Congressional debate in the early part of the 20th century that is full of examples of perspectives on the American experience as a tradition of civil liberty that defended a grounding of the consciences of all persons in liberty and economic equality. In the immediate post World War II period, the transformation of the executive branch Immigration and Nationality Service into a model of administrative efficiency that defines U.S. immigration until the present day was incompatible with this grounding American principle.

Compilation of documents from the two Hague conferences that has shaped International Law
Two international peace conferences were held just before and after the turn of the 20th century at The Hague, the Netherlands. These conferences shaped modern International (Criminal) Law. The Conventions that came out of these conferences turned out to be the basic principles of the laws of war into a written document agreed to by a Convention of delegates from all over the world.
The results and influence of both Hague conferences on International Law is discussed in this book. The establishing of the Permanent Court of Arbitration is named and both pacific settlements are added. Moreover, the impact of the Geneva Conventions will be discussed and full text documents of those are appended. As a conclusion, the dispute regulation, the reduction of armament and Humanitarian (war) Law is reviewed. The development of Humanitarian War Law, started as a core area of (the first) Hague Conference, turned out to be a pillar of today’s International Law.

Insight into the legal changes of military interventions for EU member states
'Military interventions in the Balkans, Iraq and Afghanistan led to fierce debates about their legality. To what extend are UN Security Council Resolutions needed as a legal bases for interventions in other countries? Or, do interventions gain legitimacy by virtue of the size and ability of the “Coalition of the Willing”? During and after interventions other legal challenges emerge. In modern conflict, hostilities take the form of military operations against irregular troops. As combatants cannot be distinguished from non-combatants, there is a high risk of civilian casualties. The result is that operations against opposing forces can easily become war crimes. From a legal perspective modern warfare and stabilization operations are high risk undertakings, which are easily subject to public scrutiny. This book brings together the accounts of criminal proceedings in Member States where such interventions took place, and provides valuable insight into the legal challenges of military interventions.' - Rob de Wijk, Professor of International Relations, Leiden University; Director of The Hague Center for Strategic Studies.

Comparative analysis on the doctrine of Separation of Powers in different countries
The separation of powers is a foundation of democratic societies. But what does this doctrine mean in practice? How does the judiciary connect to the power of politics? This volume reports on the often tense and dynamic relationship between judges and governments. It covers political debate but also the many strategies used to attack and defend judicial independence. These strategies range from subtle elite negotiations to all-out media wars. It also focuses on a number of countries with quite different legal histories, such as Italy, Bulgaria, Germany, the US and Israel.

Multi-jurisdictional analysis of the constitutional law of South Africa, Germany, Canada and the United States with references to the UK, EU and the Netherlands
What are the implications of globalization for the understanding of, research within and practice of constitutional law as an increasingly comparative field? What method(s) are appropriate for doing constitutional comparison, why should constitutional judges engage in comparison, how do constitutional states deal with common problems exacerbated by globalization and where is the world of constitutionalism, partly shackled by superannuated terminology, heading?
This book confronts these questions. Some of the discussion goes well beyond an introduction: the multi-jurisdictional analysis represents a contribution to the advancement of comparative constitutional law. Although the material is sourced primarily from the constitutional law of South Africa, Germany, Canada and the United States, there are also substantial references to the UK, EU and the Netherlands. The considerations brought forward are relevant to virtually every jurisdiction which is part of the global community of the early 21st Century.

Challenges to past illusions of détente during the Cold War Era
Since 1989, we refer to the whole post-war period as the “Cold War Era”. Such was not the case in 1968. At the time, the cold war – in our perception – was behind us. We no longer felt to be in the midst of it. Europeans on the Western side of the Iron Curtain felt relatively at ease with Europe’s division. The era of Détente as we called it, was considered to be a fairly stable and long-lasting political condition, even after Soviet tanks crushed Dubcek’s socialism with a human face in Prague.
In this second volume of his Footprints of the Twentieth Century, Frans A.M. Alting von Geusau challenges the past illusions of détente and the present approach of organized forgetting of the past.

Is bilateral cultural diplomacy waging war with other means?
For the question asked in this volume: Is bilateral cultural diplomacy waging war with other means? There still is no good answer. The surprise of 1989 has apparently paralyzed policies thereafter. Despite resounding declarations and non-binding resolutions on a new order, there was no vision, no strategy and no clear purpose. The basic approach was “more of the same”. Cultural diplomacy had no priority and budgets were cut in Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States. All attention was directed towards bringing the former communist countries in conformity with Western standards of law, market economy, secularism and permissiveness. The agonizing re-appraisal and re-orientation of cultural diplomacy has not taken place, despite the changed landscape. The bipolar rigidities have gone, but cultural diplomacy has remained. The self-containment of cultures within national frameworks has shifted to self-defence against the impact of globalization – which in the domain of culture is the same as Americanization. The spirit of 1989 was an eminent example of culture restored through great civil courage. We drastically failed in making it the spirit of Europe in the new era. We equally failed in transforming bilateral cultural diplomacy into a truly multilateral instrument for enabling creativity and diversity as the living sources of cultural development. Major changes in the cultural landscape happen despite our cultural diplomats. The very political objectives of cultural diplomacy are bound to marginalize the cultural diplomat in an increasingly open world society.

Examining the relationship between international law and global inequality
In examining the relationship between international law and global inequality, this book considers the extent to which international law should play a role in addressing the problem that, not only do we live in an unjust world, but we continue to persist in doing so despite the fact that this has been said to be the least controversial claim in political theory today. The book puts forward the argument that the political philosophy of cosmopolitanism is of relevance to, and has a history within, international law, and offers international law some hope of moving beyond a concern solely to secure the formal principles of external liberty between states, towards a greater concern for establishing a minimum level of material welfare for all individuals, regardless of their location. The book aims to serve as both an exploration of the role of theory in international law and as a critical introduction to the political philosophy of cosmopolitanism. It seeks to draw parallels and linkages between recent debates in the fields of political theory and international relations and international law.

A look at the sentencing practices of the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and Rwanda (ICTR)
International prosecution is increasingly recognized as an imperative process for dealing with atrocious crime. Yet there can seemingly be no adequate punishment for such horrific acts. For crime that “explodes the limits of the law” it thus becomes equally imperative that a guide exists to temper judicial discretion and to focus punishment in a way that will ultimately contribute to sustainable peace and justice.
This book examines the sentencing practices of the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and Rwanda (ICTR), comparing their normative guidelines and jurisprudence to answer the following questions:
1. Is there enough consistency in sentencing to substantiate the emergence of a guideline through jurisprudence?
2. What elements should contribute to the structure of a universal sentencing guideline?
3. What penological goals should be met through sentencing?

Can police investigations keep pace with technological developments? The role of technology in policing
Technology has always had a prominent role in policing activities. The role of technology in policing not only expanded during the last years, but in the meanwhile it became of a different nature.
Firstly, technology is increasingly used to support police work (by means of CCTV, scan equipment, resources for investigation, and so on). Secondly technology provides new opportunities for criminals, especially in the domain of information technology and these demand continuous adjustments from the police in terms of investigative methods. The use of technology in policing also leads to fascinating and challenging questions. On the one hand, there is the privacy issue and the protection of individual rights. But on the other hand technology-led policing also raises questions concerning the consequences of investing in technology, as well concerning the ways in which police forces can accomplish their tasks.
The question whether police investigations can keep pace with technological developments is up for discussion. In this issue of the Journal of Police Studies, both scientist and practitioners provide us insights about these questions and challenges technology-led policing presents us with.

The protection of personal data in criminal matters as a first element is studied in two relationships: the cooperation in criminal matters between judicial and law enforcement authorities of the European Union member states (including Europol and Eurojust) on the one hand and the cooperation in criminal matters between the judicial and law enforcement authorities of the European Union (including Europol and Eurojust) and the United States of America on the other hand.
This book offers answers to the central question whether the European Union complies with its own standards of data protection in these internal relations and in the transatlantic cooperation in criminal matters.

An essential book comparing criminal justice data within the EU
One of the main deficiencies in the EU area of freedom, security and justice, is the lack of cross-country comparable data on crime and criminal justice. The importance of progress in this domain, especially in the context of the identification of best practices in the fight against crime, has been pointed out on several occasions. The main difficulty lies in the comparability of data, or in other words the guarantee that exchanged data is understood in the same way by all actors.
In March 2007, the European Commission, DG JLS, launched a call for tender for a “Study on the development of an EU level offence classification system and an assessment of its feasibility to supporting the implementation of the Action Plan to develop an EU strategy to measure crime and criminal justice” – The Crime Statistics Project (CSP). This book contains the fi nal report of that Project, conducted by Unisys Belgium and IRCP in the course of 2008-2009.

Daarbij wordt niet alleen de concrete toepassing van de Europese regels inzake vrij verkeer en mededinging behandeld maar wordt ook een ruimer analysekader geschetst dat een antwoord moet bieden op de vraag of een sportregel al dan niet strijdig is met het Europees recht.
