The Vol. 53 (2010) of the German Yearbook of International Law examines the issue of climate change from a variety of different legal perspectives. This volume contains articles from prominent scholars on state responsibility, trade and human rights, the evolving nature of the precautionary principle, biodiversity conservation, environmentally-induced migration, sea-level rise and maritime boundaries, climate change from the perspective of the Third World and the environmental impacts of changes in the European Union’s energy policies. We are also pleased to examine China’s approach to international law in our Focus section. [mehr]Our General Articles section reflects critical developments in 2010 including the referendum in Southern Sudan, the review conference for the Rome Statute of the ICC, the ICJ’s Advisory Opinion on Kosovo’s Declaration of Independence and several decisions of US federal courts widening the scope of the Alien Torts Statute among other outstanding articles. Thank you to all of our authors for making this volume possible.
