  • Hot pursuit in Syria and in history

    September 29, 2014

    tary of State John Kerry justified the use of U.S. airpower in Syria in part on the shaky legal grounds of “hot pursuit.” Presumably this would entail the use of force to pursue militants who committed some crime in Territory X but fled into Territory Z and would allow X to temporarily violate Z’s sovereignty. The phrase has a long and storied history. In the 20th century, the idea of chasing bandits across borders conjures an image of Pancho Villa and the United States’ failed raid into Mexico to nab him — as anyone familiar with the Townes Van Zandt tune “Pancho and Lefty” will appreciate.

  • Long-Term Damage Of US Court’s Argentine Debt Ruling – Analysis

    July 25, 2014

    The US court ruling forcing Argentina to pay its hold-out creditors has big implications. This column argues that some of them are particularly worrying. The court ruling undermines the possibility of negotiated re-structuring of unsustainable debt burdens in future crises.

This will make both debtors and creditors worse-off.
