The Rise Of Risk In International Law, Stephen Townley Jan 2018

The Rise Of Risk In International Law, Stephen Townley

Chicago Journal of International Law

Risk analysis—a coping mechanism for the uncertainties we see everywhere around us—is on the rise, including at the international level. It now informs, for instance, the work of the Security Council and human rights law and practice. While the story of how risk analysis has inflected international environmental law is frequently told, there has been little attention paid to the way in which risk is increasingly relevant to other areas of international law, including through “due diligence” standards. This Article fills this gap, describing risk’s propagation across different international legal fields. It also offers a taxonomy of ...


Enforcing A Prohibition On International Espionage, Jared Beim Jan 2018

Enforcing A Prohibition On International Espionage, Jared Beim

Chicago Journal of International Law

Peacetime espionage is an incredibly important and common occurrence in modern international relations, yet its legal status is far from clear. This Comment explores the practice’s legal background, as well as the arguments for and against its legality. While there can be many benefits to peacetime espionage, and while few countries have “clean hands,” it seems unworkable to overcome the presupposition that most espionage is an “intervention” as defined by the ICJ in Nicaragua v. U.S., even if the prohibition on espionage is often unenforced. With the conclusion that most peacetime espionage is likely illegal under international law ...


International Contractualism Revisited: Non-Pecuniary Remedies Under The Fair And Equitable Treatment Standard, Patrick J. Rodriguez Jan 2018

International Contractualism Revisited: Non-Pecuniary Remedies Under The Fair And Equitable Treatment Standard, Patrick J. Rodriguez

Chicago Journal of International Law

For years, the international investment regulatory regime has puzzled onlookers with its complexity. Because the system is defined by its vast network of bilateral investment treaties (BITs), the rights and obligations of foreign investors differ greatly from those of all other participants in international trade. At the heart of this confusion is the fair and equitable treatment (FET) standard. While in theory the FET standard purports to promote global economic growth through the broad protection of foreign direct investment (FDI) in developing nations, the standard’s inherent vagueness leaves arbitration tribunals with little guidance to resolve investor-state conflicts. At the ...

The United Nations Security Council’S Implementation Of The Responsibility To Protect: A Review Of Past Interventions And Recommendations For Improvement, Jared Genser Jan 2018

The United Nations Security Council’S Implementation Of The Responsibility To Protect: A Review Of Past Interventions And Recommendations For Improvement, Jared Genser

Chicago Journal of International Law

When it was codified and adopted by the United Nations (U.N.) system in 2005, the doctrine of the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) was meant to provide an implementation mechanism for the international community to respond to governments that were perpetrating mass atrocity crimes of genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, and crimes against humanity against their own people. As R2P is now in its second decade of existence as a codified norm, it is important to comprehensively evaluate past implementation of R2P by the United Nations Security Council—the U.N. body charged with taking collective action when all other ...


Judicial Deference Allows European Consensus To Emerge, Shai Dothan Jan 2018

Judicial Deference Allows European Consensus To Emerge, Shai Dothan

Chicago Journal of International Law

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) searches for human rights policies that are adopted by the majority of the countries in Europe. Using a doctrine known as “emerging consensus,” the court then imposes these policies as an international legal obligation on all the countries under its jurisdiction. But the ECHR sometimes defers to countries, even if their policies fall short of the standard accepted by most of the countries in Europe. This deference is accomplished by using the so-called “margin of appreciation” doctrine. Naturally, emerging consensus and margin of appreciation are often conceived as competing doctrines: the more there ...
