  • Book Review: War, Peace and International Order?

    octobre 12, 2017

    This book attempts to assess the history and on-going relevance of the 1899 and 1907 Hague peace conferences, the conventions they brought into being, the institutions they established and the precedents they set. The exact legacies of the two conferences remain unclear. On the one hand, diplomatic and military historians, who cast their gaze to 1914, traditionally dismiss the events of 1899 and 1907 as insignificant footnotes on the path to the First World War. On the other, experts in international law posit that The Hague’s foremost legacy lies in the manner in which the conferences progressed the law of war and the concept and application of international justice.

  • Rosenne’s Law and Practice of the International Court: 1920 -2015 (5th Edition)

    avril 12, 2017

    The annual Shabtai Rosenne Memorial Lecture was the perfect opportunity to release the 5th edition of the Rosenne’s Law and Practice of the International Court: 1920-2015. During the Memorial Lecture, the first copies of the 4 volume edition were presented to the President of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) H.E. Judge Ronny Abraham by Professor Malcolm N. Shaw QC. Professor Shabtai Rosenne (1917-2010) was a distinguished professor of international law, a lawyer, diplomat and teacher. He was the recipient of numerous prestigious awards including the Hague Prize for International Law in 2004. Each year, a memorial lecture is organized to honor the late Professor Rosenne for his contribution to the theory and practice to International Law.

    The popularity of his monumental and definitive works established Shabtai Rosenne as the undisputed expert on the International Court of Justice’s law and practice of his time. Irrefutably the leading work on the Court, previous editions of Rosenne’s Law and Practice of the International Court have influenced generations of legal scholars, practitioners, judges, and students alike. The Fifth Edition, by Malcolm N. Shaw, combines his expertise as both an academic and practitioner to bring this monumental resource up-to-date while retaining Rosenne’s distinctive voice, erudition, and rigorous objectives.
