  • 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.

  • 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. In the future, it will not be not enough for the debtor and 92% of creditors to reach an agreement, if holdouts and a New York judge can block it. This will make both debtors and creditors worse-off.
