At the outset, international law was mainly constituted by customs. 8 which is by its nature, universal, whereas treaty law binds the parties to these treaties only 9 International custom consists of 2 elements: First is State practice, which means What generally States Do and Say. 10 Oppinio Juris is the 2nd element of customary law. It means that the state practice, has to be accepted as law, by the other states. 11 In addition to treaties and customs, other sources exist, such as Judicial decisions , juristic writings and general principles of law. 12 while they are not formal sources , they can still play an important role as an evidence of the law.

States jurisdiction in international law : concept, types and examples. By Hesham Elrafei https://www.linkedin.com/in/heshamelrafei State jurisdiction, reflects the international law general principles , of state sovereignty, equality of states , and non-interference in other states domestic affairs, and it means that a government and its courts , have general power to exercise authority, over all persons and things, within its territorial boundaries , however, there must be a link , between the individual , the offence and the state court exercising jurisdiction over that person. while it's primarily territorial, jurisdiction of states may be based on other grounds, like national security , and citizenship of the victim or the offender, however , the enforcement of such jurisdiction, is restricted by territorial factors. State jurisdiction, reflects the international law general principles , of state sovereignty, equality of states , and non-interference in other states domestic affairs. and it means that a government and its courts , have general power to exercise authority, over all persons and things, within its territorial boundaries , in relation to civil and criminal matters. however, there must be a link , between the individual , the offence , and the state court exercising jurisdiction over that person. while it's primarily territorial, jurisdiction of states may be based on other grounds, like national security , and citizenship of the victim or the offender, however , the enforcement of such jurisdiction, is restricted by territorial factors the first base of jurisdiction, is the territorial principle , and it means that the local court power, is geographically restricted, within the borders of that state. However, As one offence may take place in more than one single country, the territorial jurisdiction is divided into 2 categories, subjective and objective. the subjective principle, is exercised by the state in which the offence is started , while the objective principle, is exercised by the state in which the offence is completed. For example, a fraud can be committed by someone in ireland, against another in england. or a shooting incident , can take place on the borders of two countries, on the other hand, the state power is not absolute within its territory , as certain persons, like diplomats. are immune, from the local courts jurisdiction, the nationality of the parties, is the second ground for state jurisdiction, as a state can exercise its jurisdiction, beyond its territory ( boundaries ) , regardless where the person is located, subject that the offender or the victim ( the passive personality ) is a national of the claimant country. The 3rd ground is the protective or security principle, and it allows a State , to exercise jurisdiction over foreigners, outside its territory , regardless of their citizenship , when there is a threat to its national security. And lastly, the universality principle , is the fourth ground for state jurisdiction, and it allows any state , to punish certain international offences abroad , like piracy, slavery , torture , crimes against humanity and genocide, whether committed by or against foreign nationals.

International Law Explained
 
04:37
The depth and breadth of international law. Kal Raustiala: I think international law is one of these things that's a little bit like the air where it's everywhere. We don't really notice it so when you get on a plane and you fly to Europe the ability to get on that plane, cross over the air space of other countries, sometimes you see the little map when you're in the plane that shows you're crossing over Greenland or whatever, all of that is governed by international law in different ways. Different treaties are in place to take care of all the questions that might arise about aviation. So that's a really mundane example and then at the other extreme we've got much more contentious examples like--  Let's take the war in Iraq. So as most of us remember in the run up to the war the Bush administration went to the security council at the United Nations and tried to get a second resolution, and they're doing that because there is a legal framework in place that governs the ability of countries to enter in to armed conflict. So between those two bookends a zillion other examples but I think the thing to recognize about international law is in a globalized world, in an integrated world, you are constantly dealing with things that are crossing borders or you're crossing borders and international law is usually playing some role in shaping that. Question: What dictates international law?the most common thing are treaties and most of us are familiar with--  I mentioned aviation. There are treaties governing that. The UN itself was created by a treaty. So treaties are kind of the backbone a little bit like we think of statutes in the domestic context, but we do have something like common law. We call it customary law so a good example would be the law of the sea. There's all kinds of rules about ships and their ability to go on the high seas and who can board and where they can cross. Most of that is governed by custom and the idea is this custom kind of a cruise over time like the common law becomes entrenched and accepted as law, and then there is also courts. Right. So we have--  The International Court of Justice sits in The Hague and we've got a series of other courts. Right. The World Trade Organization has a court and so forth. So there is a set of judicial institutions much like in our domestic system so in a lot of ways it's a very similar system. There isn't I suppose a constitutional equivalent. There isn't a kind of grand governing thing but there are literally tens of thousands of treaties so a surprising amount of topics are covered.Question: Who are the governing bodies?There are a whole set of international organizations so from the United Nations being the most broad, the most elaborated, probably the most famous. The World Trade Organization is a little more specialized and then you've got dozens and dozens and dozens, thousands probably, of these subsidiary international organizations, international maritime organization dealing with law of the sea questions and so on down the line. And these have been created over the years. Some of them date back to the nineteenth century but for the most part that's a kind of twentieth-century phenomenon so one of the things we see in the last century or so has been one, the rise of these international organizations, the UN being the paramount example, and two, the use of treaties. Treaties existed in the past but when we talked about custom and common law that was much more common. Now we tend to codify that in to treaty. So those two things are sort of two major trends of the last century.Question: How will globalization affect international law?in the sense that you can have a treaty for example in which every country is a member of that treaty and so would be governed by that, and in fact we have lots of treaties that are pretty close to what you've got in virtually every single country. The Convention on the Rights of the Child I think is a good example where only the United States and Somalia when I last checked were not parties to that treaty. The United Nations Charter comes pretty close. Right. So virtually every country--  Switzerland for a long time was a holdout. Virtually every country is part of the UN system and so governed by the rules of the UN Charter so there is no barrier to that and we do see it.

Book launch: „Principles of International Economic Law" - Matthias Herdegen

Book launch: "Principles of International Economic Law" at the Max Weber lecture room of the Käte Hamburger Centre for Advanced Study "Law as Culture" on the 14.05.2013 at 4:00 pm Book launch: "Principles of International Economic Law" Presentation of the book "Principles of International Economic Law" by Professor Dr. Matthias Herdegen (Oxford University Press). In his book "Principles of International Economic Law" published at Oxford University Press last January, Matthias Herdegen offers a comprehensive overview of the central topics in international economic law, with an emphasis on the link between legal developments and their political, economic and social background. Professor Herdegen analyzes central topics of international economic law ranging from WTO law to investment protection, commercial law and monetary law in context with human rights, environmental protection, good governance, and the needs of developing countries. Furthermore, Matthias Herdegen investigates the interplay between the different economic and political interests on both the international and domestic levels. He puts into profile the often complex relationship between, on the one hand, international standards on liberalization and economic rationality and, on the other, state sovereignty and national preferences. Yet how is this meshwork of normative orders affected by the fact that we live in a global world that is pervaded by legal cultures of various provenance with different basic assumptions and differences even regarding the concept of law itself? Professor Dr. Dr. Rudolf Dolzer (Bonn, Institute of Public International Law) will present the book. The presentation of the book will be followed by a discussion on the topic "International Economic Law and Diversity of Legal Cultures". Invited to provide commentary and participate in the discussion are Professor Dr. Erika de Wet (Co-Director of the Institute for International Law and Comparative Law in Africa at the University of Pretoria, South Africa, Professor for International Constitutional Law at the University of Amsterdam, Netherlands and lecturer at the Faculty of Law of the University of Bonn) as well as Pravin H. Parekh (New Delhi, Senior Advocate at the Supreme Court of India). Further, Merel Alstein, Associate Editor at Oxford University Press, will offer some words of welcome to those in attendance. Matthias Herdegen is Director of the Institute of Public Law (Institut für Öffentliches Recht) and Director at the Institute of Public International Law (Institut für Völkerrecht) of the University of Bonn. His main research interests lie, inter alia, in the fields of constitutional law, European law, international business law, international law and biotechnology law. Since October 2012, Matthias Herdegen is Fellow at the Käte Hamburger Centre for Advanced Study "Law as Culture". ___________________________________________________ Das Käte Hamburger Kolleg „Recht als Kultur" lädt ein im Rahmen des „Forum Recht als Kultur" zum Book Launch: International Economic Law and Diversity of Legal Cultures zum neu erschienenen Werk von Prof. Dr. Matthias Herdegen: Principles of International Economic Law (Oxford University Press) 14.

What is INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW? What does INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW mean? INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW meaning - INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW definition -INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN LAW explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. International humanitarian law (IHL) is the law that regulates the conduct of war (jus in bello). It is that branch of international law which seeks to limit the effects of armed conflict by protecting persons who are not participating in hostilities, and by restricting and regulating the means and methods of warfare available to combatants. IHL is inspired by considerations of humanity and the mitigation of human suffering. "It comprises a set of rules, established by treaty or custom, that seeks to protect persons and property/objects that are (or may be) affected by armed conflict and limits the rights of parties to a conflict to use methods and means of warfare of their choice". It includes "the Geneva Conventions and the Hague Conventions, as well as subsequent treaties, case law, and customary international law." It defines the conduct and responsibilities of belligerent nations, neutral nations, and individuals engaged in warfare, in relation to each other and to protected persons, usually meaning non-combatants. It is designed to balance humanitarian concerns and military necessity, and subjects warfare to the rule of law by limiting its destructive effect and mitigating human suffering. Serious violations of international humanitarian law are called war crimes. International humanitarian law, jus in bello, regulates the conduct of forces when engaged in war or armed conflict. It is distinct from jus ad bellum which regulates the conduct of engaging in war or armed conflict and includes crimes against peace and of war of aggression. Together the jus in bello and jus ad bellum comprise the two strands of the laws of war governing all aspects of international armed conflicts. The law is mandatory for nations bound by the appropriate treaties. There are also other customary unwritten rules of war, many of which were explored at the Nuremberg War Trials. By extension, they also define both the permissive rights of these powers as well as prohibitions on their conduct when dealing with irregular forces and non-signatories. International humanitarian law operates on a strict division between rules applicable in international armed conflict and internal armed conflict. This dichotomy is widely criticized. The relationship between international human rights law and international humanitarian law is disputed among international law scholars. This discussion forms part of a larger discussion on fragmentation of international law. While pluralist scholars conceive international human rights law as being distinct from international humanitarian law, proponents of the constitutionalist approach regard the latter as a subset of the former. In a nutshell, those who favors separate, self-contained regimes emphasize the differences in applicability; international humanitarian law applies only during armed conflict. On the other hand, a more systemic perspective explains that international humanitarian law represents a function of international human rights law; it includes general norms that apply to everyone at all time as well as specialized norms which apply to certain situations such as armed conflict and military occupation (i.e., IHL) or to certain groups of people including refugees (e.g., the 1951 Refugee Convention), children (the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child), and prisoners of war (the 1949 Third Geneva Convention).

Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ The territorial principle (also territoriality principle) is a principle of public international law under which a sovereign state can prosecute criminal offences that are committed within its borders. The principle also bars states from exercising jurisdiction beyond their borders, unless they have jurisdiction under other principles such as the principle of nationality, the passive personality principle, the protective principle, and possibly universal jurisdiction. The Lotus case was a key court ruling on the territoriality principle. In 1926, a French vessel collided with a Turkish vessel, causing the death of several Turkish nationals. The Permanent Court of International Justice ruled that Turkey had jurisdiction to try the French naval lieutenant for criminal negligence, even though the incident happened beyond Turkey's boundaries. This case extended the territoriality principle to cover cases that happen outside a state's boundaries, but have a substantial effect on the state's interests or involve its citizens. Questions have surfaced regarding how the territoriality principle applies, with the rise of globalization and the Internet. The applicability of this principle also was in question, with the case against Augusto Pinochet and other cases of transnational justice.

What is INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW? What does INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW mean?

What is INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW? What does INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW mean? INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW meaning - INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW definition - INTERNATIONAL TRADE LAW explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. International Trade Law includes the appropriate rules and customs for handling trade between countries. However, it is also used in legal writings as trade between private sectors, which is not right. This branch of law is now an independent field of study as most governments have become part of the world trade, as members of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Since the transaction between private sectors of different countries is an important part of the WTO activities, this latter branch of law is now a very important part of the academic works and is under study in many universities across the world. International trade law should be distinguished from the broader field of international economic law. The latter could be said to encompass not only WTO law, but also law governing the international monetary system and currency regulation, as well as the law of international development. The body of rules for transnational trade in the 21st century derives from medieval commercial laws called the lex mercatoria and lex maritima — respectively, "the law for merchants on land" and "the law for merchants on sea." Modern trade law (extending beyond bilateral treaties) began shortly after the Second World War, with the negotiation of a multilateral treaty to deal with trade in goods: the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). International trade law is based on theories of economic liberalism developed in Europe and later the United States from the 18th century onwards. International Trade Law is an aggregate of legal rules of “international legislation” and new lex mercatoria, regulating relations in international trade. “International legislation” – international treaties and acts of international intergovernmental organizations regulating relations in international trade. lex mercatoria - "the law for merchants on land". Alok Narayan defines "lex mercatoria" as "any law relating to businesses" which was criticised by Professor Julius Stone. and lex maritima - "the law for merchants on sea. Alok in his recent article criticised this definition to be "too narrow" and "merely-creative". Professor Dodd and Professor Malcolm Shaw of Leeds University supported this proposition. In 1995, the World Trade Organization, a formal international organization to regulate trade, was established. It is the most important development in the history of international trade law. The purposes and structure of the organization is governed by the Agreement Establishing The World Trade Organization, also known as the "Marrakesh Agreement". It does not specify the actual rules that govern international trade in specific areas. These are found in separate treaties, annexed to the Marrakesh Agreement. Scope of WTO : (a) provide framework for administration and implementation of agreements; (b) forum for further negotiations; (c) trade policy review mechanism;and (d) promote greater coherence among members economics policies Principles of the WTO: (a) principle of non-discrimination (most-favoured-nation treatment obligation and the national treatment obligation) (b) market access (reduction of tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade) (c) balancing trade liberalisation and other societal interests (d) harmonisation of national regulation (TRIPS agreement, TBT agreement, SPS agreement) The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade(GATT) has been the backbone of international trade law since 1948 after the charter for international trade had been agreed upon in Havana. It contains rules relating to "unfair" trading practices — dumping and subsidies. Many things impacted GATT like the Uruguay Round and the North American Free Trade Agreement.

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ In maritime boundary claims, the equidistance principle or principle of equidistance is a legal concept that a nation's maritime boundaries should conform to a median line equidistant from the shores of neighboring nation-states. This concept was developed in the process of settling disputes where the borders of adjacent nations were located on a contiguous continental shelf. An equidistance line is one for which every point on the line is equidistant from the nearest points on the baselines being used. The equidistance principle is a methodology that has been endorsed by the UNCLOS treaty, but predates the treaty and has been used by the Supreme Court of the United States, states, and nations to equitably establish boundaries. The principle of equidistance represents one aspect of customary international law, but its importance is evaluated in light of other factors, such as history: "Historic rights" or titles of some or another kind will acquire enhanced, rather than diminished, importance as a result of the narrowing of the 'physical' rather than the 'legal' sources of right. It is important to remember that, although historical claims were not successful in the Gulf of Maine case, the identification of a 'status quo' or 'modus vivendi' line in Tunisia–Libya was of decisive importance in confirming the equitableness of the first stage of delimitation. States will scrupulously avoid, more than ever, any appearance of acquiescence where acquiescence is not intended; prudent coordination can be expected between petroleum and mining ministries and the legal advisers of foreign ministries." — Highet, Keith. (1989). "Whatever became of natural prolongation," in Rights to Oceanic Resources: Deciding and Drawing Maritime Boundaries, (Dorinda G. Dallmeyer et al., editors), pp. 97, p. 97, at Google Books.

In terms of principles of comity, reciprocity and res judicata (that is, that the legal issues in question , have been finally decided already by a court , between the same parties, and cannot be ruled on again. ) As a result , the number of treaties between states, has grown quickly , in order to regulate this conflict of law. In the absence of a treaty , a country is not obliged to recognize or to enforce a foreign judgment , as the substance of the foreign court decision is not reviewed . however , some legal systems recognize foreign judgments , more or less to the same degree , as domestic judgments . For instance, countries with more restrictive domestic rules, like France , tend to enter into more bilateral treaties, comparing to the United States, who has zero. In all cases, whether in the presence of a treaty or without , a state can deny the enforcement of a judgment , after examining the following causes: 1ST , whether the rendering court, that issued the judgment has jurisdiction over the case . 2ND , that the judgment is valid , final , and on the merits , under the law of the rendering court 3RD That the defendant had the right to fair trial , was properly served with notice of the proceedings , and had an opportunity to be heard in court , and the right to appeal. 4TH, that the foreign judgment, is not contrary to the public policy of the enforcing country, its national laws , nor with international law Given that no general duty exists, to recognize foreign judgments at all, such exceptions are generally compatible with international law, unless treaty law provides otherwise.

Yes, even wars have laws. To find out more, visit http://therulesofwar.org ******** Rules of War in a Nutshell - script Since the beginning, humans have resorted to violence as a way to settle disagreements. Yet through the ages, people from around the world have tried to limit the brutality of war. It was this humanitarian spirit that led to the First Geneva Convention of 1864,and to the birth of modern International Humanitarian Law. Setting the basic limits on how wars can be fought, these universal laws of war protect those not fighting, as well as those no longer able to. To do this, a distinction must always be made between who or what may be attacked, and who or what must be spared and protected. - CIVILIANS - Most importantly, civilians can never be targeted. To do so is a war crime. “When they drove into our village, they shouted that they were going to kill everyone. I was so scared, I ran to hide in the bush. I heard my mother screaming. I thought I would never see her again.” Every possible care must be taken to avoid harming civilians or destroying things essential for their survival. They have a right to receive the help they need. - DETAINEES - “The conditions prisoners lived in never used to bother me. People like him were the reason my brother was dead. He was the enemy and was nothing to me. But then I realized that behind bars, he was out of action and no longer a threat to me or my family.” The laws of war prohibit torture and other ill-treatment of detainees, whatever their past. They must be given food and water and allowed to communicate with loved ones. This preserves their dignity and keeps them alive. - SICK & WOUNDED - Medical workers save lives, sometimes in the most dangerous conditions. “Several fighters from both sides had been critically wounded in a fierce battle and we were taking them to the closest hospital. At a checkpoint, a soldier threatened us, demanding that we only treat his men. Time was running out and I was afraid they were all going to die.” Medical workers must always be allowed to do their job and the Red Cross or Red Crescent must not be attacked. The sick or wounded have a right to be cared for, regardless of whose side they are on. - LIMITS TO WARFARE - Advances in weapons technology has meant that the rules of war have also had to adapt. Because some weapons and methods of warfare don't distinguish between fighters and civilians, limits on their use have been agreed. In the future, wars may be fought with fully autonomous robots. But will such robots ever have the ability to distinguish between a military target and someone who must never be attacked? No matter how sophisticated weapons become it is essential that they are in line with the rules of war. International Humanitarian Law is all about making choices that preserve a minimum of human dignity in times of war, and makes sure that living together again is possible once the last bullet has been shot.

For Q & A please follow the link (Admin) https://www.facebook.com/100006912374840/videos/1972156333024760/ What an interesting and easy is the subject of International Law. But is it a law? If yes then how it is legislated and enforced? International law, also called public international law or law of nations, the body of legal rules, norms, and standards that apply between sovereign states and other entities that are legally recognized as international actors. The term was coined by the English philosopher Jeremy Bentham (1748–1832). The range of subjects and actors directly concerned with international law has widened considerably, moving beyond the classical questions of war, peace, and diplomacy to include human rights, economic and trade issues, space law, and international organizations. Although international law is a legal order and not an ethical one, it has been influenced significantly by ethical principles and concerns, particularly in the sphere of human rights. International law is distinct from international comity, which comprises legally non-binding practices adopted by states for reasons of courtesy (e.g., the saluting of the flags of foreign warships at sea). In addition, the study of international law, or public international law, is distinguished from the field of conflict of laws, or private international law, which is concerned with the rules of municipal law—as international lawyers term the domestic law of states—of different countries where foreign elements are involved. But generally the term "international law" can refer to three distinct legal disciplines: 1.Public international law, which governs the relationship between states and international entities. It includes these legal fields: treaty law, law of sea, international criminal law, the laws of war or international humanitarian law, international human rights law, and refugee law. 2. Private international law, or conflict of laws, which addresses the questions of (1) which jurisdiction may hear a case, and (2) the law concerning which jurisdiction applies to the issues in the case. 3. Supranational law or the law of supranational organizations, which concerns regional agreements where the laws of nation states may be held inapplicable when conflicting with a supranational legal system when that nation has a treaty obligation to a supranational collective. The sources of international law applied by the community of nations to find the content of international law are listed under Article 38.1 of the Statute of the International Court of Justice: Treaties, customs, and general principles are stated as the three primary sources; and judicial decisions and scholarly writings are expressly designated as the subsidiary sources of international law. Let us watch the video and understand this highly interesting subject. For discussion please join International Law with Naeem Khan.
