Water - Research Guide International Law

Le droit des cours d’eau internationaux prend de plus en plus d’importance malgré sa jeunesse relative en tant que thème du droit international public et malgré le fait que l’essentiel de ce droit soit en train d’émerger et ne soit pas encore bien établi. Depuis l’antiquité, quand les premières civilisations se sont établies le long des grands fleuves du monde, l’eau a joué un rôle important dans le développement économique et social. Outre la consommation domestique, l’eau servait principalement à la navigation, comme le révèlent la doctrine antique et la pratique des États. Suite à la révolution industrielle, la concurrence entre les utilisations des cours d’eau internationaux autres que la navigation a encouragé le développement du droit international de l’eau.

Blog bibliothèque Gbagbo

On January 15 2019, Mr Laurent Gbagbo, the former head of state of Côte d’Ivoire (2000-2011) and his right-hand man, Charles Blé Goudé, were acquitted from all charges of crimes against humanity that were allegedly committed between 2010 and 2011. Post-electural bloodshed in Côte d’Ivoire in 2010 resulted in the death of about 3,000 people and the displacement of 500,000. Gbagbo was charged with four counts of crimes against humanity: murder, rape, other inhumane acts or – in the alternative – attempted murder, and persecution, allegedly committed during the 2010-2011 post-election violence in Côte d’Ivoire. Gbagbo, who has pleaded not guilty, was taken into custody by the ICC in 2011. He remained in custody for seven years. The trial was a landmark in the history of the ICC. Gbagbo was the highest profile official and the first former head of state, to stand trial at the ICC since the establishment of the Court.

World War II

World War II, or the Second World War, was the global conflict lasting from 1939 to 1945, involving most of the world’s nations — including all of the great powers — eventually forming two opposing military alliances, the Allies and the Axis. It was the most widespread war in history, with more than 100 million military personnel mobilised. In a state of “total war,” the major participants placed their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities at the service of the war effort. Marked by significant events involving the mass death of civilians, including the Holocaust and the only use of nuclear weapons in warfare, it was the deadliest conflict in human history, resulting in 50 million to over 70 million fatalities. We have created a Library special on World War II in order to provide you easy access to our collection.
