Models And Documents: Artefacts Of International Legal Knowledge, Annelise Riles Oct 1999

Models And Documents: Artefacts Of International Legal Knowledge, Annelise Riles

Cornell Law Faculty Publications

This article draws upon one year of ethnographic research at United Nations conferences to challenge some common academic assumptions about what it means to "do" international law. The article compares the work of academic international lawyers - founded in making models of an international system - to the work of practitioners - exemplified by the work of making documents, and demonstrates the particular, peculiar nature of each kind of knowledge, from the point of view of the observer. This leads to a set of conclusions concerning how an academic study of international law influenced by an appreciation of the particularity of its own ...

States Of Emergency - Moderating Their Effects On Human Rights, Venkat Iyer Oct 1999

States Of Emergency - Moderating Their Effects On Human Rights, Venkat Iyer

Dalhousie Law Journal

There has been a runaway proliferation of emergency regimes worldwide in recent decades. This, coupled with the high incidence of human rights abuses which accompany them, has made states of emergency a matter of increasing concern among human rights policymakers and monitors. The author evaluates the various measures that have been taken by the international community to moderate the effects of emergencies, and outlines possible future strategies to increase the effectiveness of such measures.

Succession By Estoppel: Hong Kong's Succession To The Iccpr, Peter K. Yu Oct 1999

Succession By Estoppel: Hong Kong's Succession To The Iccpr, Peter K. Yu

Faculty Scholarship

This Article argues that Hong Kong succeeded to the ICCPR and the reporting obligations under the Covenant. Part I of the Article traces the development of the ICCPR in Hong Kong before 1997. This development is important because the Joint Declaration provides only for the continuation of the ICCPR as applied to Hong Kong before the transition. Parts II and III examine whether Hong Kong succeeded to the ICCPR. Since the Covenant is ambiguous as to whether the contracting parties are limited to sovereign states, Part II evaluates whether Hong Kong satisfies the membership requirement as stipulated in Article 48 ...

The Legitimacy Of International Governance: A Coming Challenge For International Environmental Law?, Daniel M. Bodansky Jul 1999

The Legitimacy Of International Governance: A Coming Challenge For International Environmental Law?, Daniel M. Bodansky

Scholarly Works

This article is about a problem only just becoming visible: the legitimacy of international environmental law, and more specifically, the perception that the international environmental process is insufficiently democratic. Until now, international lawyers have tended to focus on what environmental standards are needed and how those standards can be made effective. But as decision-making authority gravitates from the national to the international level, the question of legitimacy will likely emerge from the shadows and become a central issue in international environmental law. This article seeks to clarify the nature of the legitimacy challenge and to survey possible sources of legitimacy ...


Truce In The Salmon War: Alternatives For The Pacific Salmon Treaty, Karol De Zwager Brown Jul 1999

Truce In The Salmon War: Alternatives For The Pacific Salmon Treaty, Karol De Zwager Brown

Washington Law Review

The 1985 Pacific Salmon Treaty was heralded as an end to the ongoing international dispute between the United States and Canada over Pacific salmon fishing rights. The Treaty, however, failed to define adequately the principles and processes for allocating salmon harvests between the two countries. The parties to the Treaty have been unable to reach consensus on annual salmon harvests since 1992, fueling a growing conflict which has threatened to spill over to issues beyond the fishery dispute. This Article examines the historical context of the "salmon war," highlighting changes in international law and domestic politics that affected the formation ...
