The bodies involved in this process range from the UN Security Council to government legislatures. This book is the first to address, in one volume, the wide variety of responses to terrorism as they exist in both international and domestic contexts. It also represents the first ever comprehensive collection of documents referring to terrorism which are to be found in the laws of the UK and France as well as in international

Problems and process : international law and how we use it by Rosalyn Higgins( Book )

56 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this, the revised text of her widely acclaimed lectures from the Hague Academy General Course in International Law, one of the leading international lawyers of her generation offers a personal view of international law. She demonstrates that there is an essential and unavoidable choice to be made between the perception of international law as a system of neutral rules, and international law as a system of decision-making directed towards the attainment of certain declared values. She goes on to show how international law can be used to address difficult and unresolved problems, such as the allocation and exploitation of natural resources; the protection and definition of human rights; and the allocation of jurisdictional competence." "Broad-ranging and thought-provoking, the book will be of value to all those seeking a better understanding of the interlocking concepts which go to make up international Law today."--Jacket

Oppenheim's international law : United Nations by Rosalyn Higgins( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United Nations, whose specialized agencies were the subject of an Appendix to the 1958 edition of Oppenheim's International Law: Peace, has expanded beyond all recognition since its founding in 1945. This volume represents a study that is entirely new, but prepared in the way that has become so familiar over succeeding editions of Oppenheim. An authoritative and comprehensive study of the United Nations' legal practice, this volume covers the formal structures of the UN as it has expanded over the years, and all that this complex organization does. All substantive issues are addressed in separate sections, including among others, the responsibilities of the UN, financing, immunities, human rights, preventing armed conflicts and peacekeeping, and judicial matters. In examining the evolving structures and ever expanding work of the United Nations, this volume follows the long-held tradition of Oppenheim by presenting facts uncoloured by personal opinion, in a succinct text that also offers in the footnotes a wealth of information and ideas to be explored. It is a book that, while making all necessary reference to the Charter, the Statute of the International Court of Justice, and other legal instruments, tells of the realities of the legal issues as they arise in the day to day practice of the United Nations. Missions to the UN, Ministries of Foreign Affairs, practitioners of international law, academics, and students will all find this book to be vital in their understanding of the workings of the legal practice of the UN. -- $c Provided by publisher

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During his long career in the Foreign Service of his native Cyprus, Ambassador Andrew Jacovides has combined the practice of diplomacy with an abiding interest in international law. Having been an outstanding student at the University of Cambridge and Harvard Law School, he represented the Republic of Cyprus from its inception at the United Nations, other international organizations, in Washington, D.C. (rising to the position of Dean of its Diplomatic Corps) and to just reunited Germany, among other postings. Parallel to this, he has been an active international lawyer, contributing to the promotion of international law at such major conferences as the Law of Treaties and the Law of the Sea, as a three-term elected member of the U.N. International Law Commission, and at the Legal (Sixth) Committee of the General Assembly. He has also been a UNCC Commissioner, a Dormant Swiss Accounts Tribunal and ICSID (World Bank) Arbitrator and a banker (Bank of Cyprus). International Law and Diplomacy is a distillation of his contribution to international law and diplomacy for the past half century. It will provide useful insights for international lawyers, diplomats, United Nations officials, and students of public affairs. It is also a must read for those interested in the Cyprus problem"--Provided by publisher
