Each day the media reports the rapid changes occurring around the world which have a significance for international law. The struggle for self-determination in the USSR and elsewhere, the attempts to control terrorism, the role of the United Nations, the cries for human rights, and the urgent need to protect the environment are all matters addressed by international law. However, too often the treaties, the resolutions, the statements, the cases and the other materials concerning these matters are not readily available to students of international law. Many are in United Nations documents, in national journals or in foreign government publications. As there is an increasing interdependence of the international community, it is important for this material to be easily accessible. This book is a complete collection of cases and materials and contains the material students generally need, covering both the well-established and the developing international law.

International law is a crucial part of national and international affairs in the 21st Century as the process of globalisation proceeds rapidly.

This is a fully revised edition that includes recent materials on: international economic law, such as the responses to the "anti-globalization" protests; the regulation of the use of force, includingactions in Afghanistan; the territorial administrations by the UN, as in East Timor; the increasing developments in international human rights law, such as the coming into force of the International Criminal Court and national human rights legislation; the clear obligations on States under international environmental law; and the role of non-state actors in the international community.

Since the Amsterdam Treaty of 1997 empowered the EC to adopt rules in the field of conflicts of laws, legal instruments have been adopted that provide common rules on issues that touch upon the day-to-day life of European citizens. There are now instruments covering jurisdiction and the recognition and enforcement of judgments in civil and commercial matters, family matters and maintenance obligations, and the law applicable to contractual and non-contractual obligations, legal separations and divorces. There is also legislation establishing swift procedures for recovering claims abroad, ie the European Enforcement Order, the European Order for Payment Procedure and the European Small Claims Procedure, and legislation regulating cross-border insolvency proceedings and judicial assistance in the field of service of documents, taking of evidence and access to justice. This long list of EU legislation is not exhaustive of EU conflicts of laws rules: numerous further provisions are scattered among other EU legislation, eg directives on consumer, labour and insurance contracts; company law; IP rights; securities; privacy; and so on. Besides this the European Court of Justice has issued many judgments addressing relevant aspects of the conflict of laws found in the acquis communautaire in this field. This book, which assembles all the relevant EU legislation and ECJ decisions in one place, provides a guide to the maze of legal instruments now in place, supplemented by brief commentaries identifying the leading principles and anticipating future developments.
