German Yearbook of International Law: Vol. 59 (2016)

Vol. 59′s Forum Section evaluates the Paris Climate Agreement.

The Focus Section presents several “frozen conflicts” (Crimea, Nagorno-Karabakh, Moldova, Kosovo, Western Sahara, and Cyprus). Their historical development is assessed and their interaction with public international law and EU law and politics are explored.

The General Articles Section deals with the foundations of customary international law, ambiguity in law, the international crime of genocide, Certain Iranian Assets, EU Trade Agreements, and other subjects.

The German Practice Section takes up several decisions of Germany’s Federal Constitutional Court as well as of its Federal Court of Justice relating to questions of international and EU law. It furthermore explores Germany’s actions during its term of Chairmanship of the OSCE, deals with the question of whether it may designate the Maghreb States as ‘safe third countries’, evaluates the as yet unresolved border dispute with the Netherlands in the Ems estuary, and examines legal reactions to the Germanwings disaster.
