    OUVRAGE : S. Bhandari, Global Constitutionalism and the Path of International Law: Transformation of Law and State in the Globalized World

    Surendra BHANDARI

    In Global Constitutionalism and the Path of International Law, Surendra Bhandari succinctly offers an account of the most important growth and features of international law from the perspectives of global constitutionalism. The author examines the concept from its constitutive features and the operative standards or modus operandi. These two aspects offer a new and innovative methodology in explicating the theory of ‘global constitutionalism’. By examining three cases: international trade (WTO), human rights, and the role of Security Council, the author demonstrates how the idea of global constitutionalism is shaping and deepening the path of international law in the 21st century and elucidates the development of international law as a body of positive rules.

    OUVRAGE : M.B. Olmos Giupponi, Rethinking Free Trade, Economic Integration and Human Rights in the Americas

    María Belén OLMOS GIUPPONI

    This monograph offers the first systematic overview of the protection of human rights in trade agreements in the Americas. Traditionally, trade agreements in the Americas were concerned with economic questions and paid little attention to human rights. However, in the wake of the 'new regionalism', which emerged at the end of the last century, more clauses addressing social issues such as labour rights and environmental standards were inserted in trade agreements. As economic integration increased, a framework for the protection of human rights evolved. This book argues that this framework allows for human rights protection on a transnational level, while constructing regional identities. Looking at the four key regional integration processes, namely the Caribbean Community, the Central American Integration System, the Andean Community of Nations and the Southern Common Market, and also at the North American Free Trade Agreement, it shows how the integration process has reached a considerable degree of consolidation. Writing on key sources in English for the first time, this book will be essential reading for all free trade and human rights scholars.

    NOTE : Force militaire conjointe au Sahel : quand la politique internationale dépend du bon vouloir des États-Unis

    Emmanuel GOFFI

    Le Conseil de sécurité vient de rejeter la résolution soumise aux Nations Unies par la France, le 6 juin dernier, pour autoriser, sous le chapitre 5 de la Charte de l'ONU, le déploiement d’une force conjointe africaine dans la bande sahélo-saharienne. Cette force, qui devait inscrire son action dans le cadre du G5 Sahel réunissant le Burkina Faso, le Mali, la Mauritanie, le Niger et le Tchad, aurait eu pour mission de compléter à la fois l’action de l’opération militaire française antiterroriste Barkhane et l’action de la Mission multidimensionnelle intégrée des Nations Unies pour la stabilisation au Mali (MINUSMA). Forte de 5 000 hommes, cette force conjointe devait réunir des militaires des pays du G5 pour lutter contre le terrorisme dans les zones transfrontalières, mais également pour combattre le crime organisé qui, au travers de divers trafics, facilite le financement des groupes armés terroristes (GAT).

    OUVRAGE : C.A. Miles, Provisional Measures before International Courts and Tribunals

    Cameron A. MILES 

    Since the decision of the International Court of Justice in LaGrand (Germany v United States of America), the law of provisional measures has expanded dramatically both in terms of the volume of relevant decisions and the complexity of their reasoning. Provisional Measures before International Courts and Tribunals seeks to describe and evaluate this expansion, and to undertake a comparative analysis of provisional measures jurisprudence in a range of significant international courts and tribunals so as to situate interim relief in the wider procedure of those adjudicative bodies. The result is the first comprehensive examination of the law of provisional measures in over a decade, and the first to compare investor-state arbitration jurisprudence with more traditional inter-state courts and tribunals.
