German Yearbook of International Law: Vol. 57 (2014)

In the year of the 100th anniversary of the Walther Schücking Institute  for International Law where the GYIL is edited, Vol. 57 looks at a text  by its founder Theodor Niemeyer and deals with philosophical and  political questions of (legal) science within the “Forum”.

The “Focus Section” considers the position of the law of the sea in the  21st century. Participants of the March 2014 conference in Kiel present  articles on the development of fundamental issues pertaining to the law  of the sea, i.a. the domination of land over sea or institutional  developments, as well as current challenges, e.g. the exploitation of  deep sea resources, maritime security, and dispute settlement in  multi-layered constellations.

The subjects of “General Articles” range from fundamental questions  regarding the sources of law to the relationship between public  international and EU law, the application of the Monetary Gold  principle, issues of competence of the European Court of Human Rights,  consequences of the Kadi jurisprudence, and to matters of international  criminal law such as immunity and the right to a lawful judge.

Articles in the final section discuss “German Practice” relating i.a. to  the (il)legality of the Kosovo intervention, to a possible compensation  in the Kunduz case, to the human right to privacy in the digital age,  to UNESCO intangible cultural heritage, and to the reference decision of  the Federal Constitutional Court regarding the OMT Decision of the ECB.

We thank all of our authors for making this volume possible.
