The United Nations and the Question of Palestine - Volume 3The United Nations and the Question of Palestine - Volume 3
Hilwig, E.; Fait, S; Althuis, P. van; Wolf, W. van der (Eds).

The Palestine problem became an international issue towards the end of the First World War with the disintegration of the Turkish Ottoman Empire. Palestine was among the several former Ottoman Arab territories which were placed under the administration of Great Britain under the Mandates System adopted by the League of Nations pursuant to the League`s Covenant (Article 22) . All but one of these Mandated Territories became fully independent States, as anticipated. The exception was Palestine where, instead of being limited to "the rendering of administrative assistance and advice" the Mandate had as a primary objective the implementation of the "Balfour Declaration" issued by the British Government in 1917, expressing support for "the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people". Since the 1990`s violence in the region spread again. The assassination of Prime-Minister Rabin and the tensions in the occupied territories did keep the Question of Palestine on the international agenda. In this collection of documents a complete overview of the United Nations efforts to establish a peaceful situation in the region is being published.

In the first 16 volumes annual developments from 1946-2000 are being provided. From 2000 onwards separate volumes containing documents and background-informationare being published frequently.
To complete the first 16 volumes a separate Index and Historical volume linking the documents in this first part of the collection will be published.

Global Human Rights Instrument Collection - Volume 6Global Human Rights Instrument Collection - Volume 6
P.A. van Laar (ed.)

Human rights are rights that you can invoke because you are human. They are aimed to preserve human nature, humanity and provide humane standards. Human rights translate into international norms that help protect people from all over the world from severe political, legal and social abuses. Law and morale are the safeguards of these inalienable rights. Human rights invoke strong claims and even stronger sentiments. To ensure them, governments are directly addressed, requiring compliance and enforcement. The Universal Human Rights Instruments collection aims to give a detailed and accurate overview of the instruments that have been created over the years to safeguard the human rights of people. The content of this collection ranges from universal human rights instruments to continental human rights instruments and discusses the direct enforcement of human rights by international courts and tribunals. The goal behind these extensive studies is to provide the international legal public with a reliable, detailed resource of prominent human rights instruments.

The Doctrine of Command Responsibility and the Need to Avoid Arbitrary PunishmentsThe Doctrine of Command Responsibility and the Need to Avoid Arbitrary Punishments
D. Civico

When should a superior be held responsible for the crimes of his subordinates? Power and Responsibility are to be seen as a continuum, with one flowing along the other. What often emerges is the idea of a power which, pretending to do well, has in it the seeds of “evil”. An “evil” restrained, but always ready to manifest in exceptional moments, as a surplus of sovereignty. Thus, having power can compel a person to abridge the limits of morality and infringe upon the rights of others. Therefore, a leader, under the “intoxication” of power, could refuse to respect the rights of others, and become irresponsible and unaccountable. Moving along the same idea, responsibility without power becomes meaningless. Unless a person has been entrusted an adequate amount of power, the responsibility entrusted cannot be performed. Thus, power and responsibility require the support of each other in every walk of life. Power and Responsibility: that is where Command Responsibility comes from.





A Comparative Study of Cybercrime in Criminal LawA Comparative Study of Cybercrime in Criminal Law
Q. Wang

The development of information technology provides new opportunities for crimes. Firstly, it facilitates traditional crimes such as fraud, and secondly, it breeds new crimes such as hacking. The traditional crimes facilitated by information technology and the new crimes bred by it are the so-called cybercrime in this book. To regulate cybercrime, legal regimes have developed countermeasures in the field of criminal law at different levels. At the national level, China, the United States, England and Singapore have all undergone reforms to adapt their criminal law. At the international level, the Council of Europe has drafted the Convention on Cybercrime and opened it for signatures. However, the still commonly committed cybercrime, such as DDoS attacks and online fraud, indicates the insufficiency of these countermeasures. In this background, this book intends to answer the research question: how can the criminal law be adapted to regulate cybercrime? By using doctrinal research and comparative study as the main methods, this book firstly explores and analyses the approaches of cybercrime legislations in the selected five legal regimes both in the past and in the present, and secondly, compares the different approaches and concludes with respect to the following aspects:   Aspect 1: Do we need a cyber-specific legislation to regulate cybercrime?   Aspect 2: If we do need a specific legislation, what approaches are more systematic for it?   Aspect 3: What principles are sufficient and appropriate to determine jurisdiction over cybercrime?   Aspect 4: What is the function of the Convention on Cybercrime in shaping appropriate legislation against cybercrime?





Background to the crisis in Syria and perspectives on human rights & humanitarian law violationsBackground to the crisis in Syria and perspectives on human rights & humanitarian law violations
Yana Ballod

Since the beginning of the crisis in Syria, in mid-March 2011, the context in which it is regarded has been constantly changing. Four years later, the escalating violent armed conflict, fired from the “Arab Spring” movement has led to the rise of terrorist groups and a huge wave of refugees fleeing from the country. The present publication addresses the developments before 2011, as well as between mid-March 2011 and July 2015. It provides the factual background to the crisis and its analysis within the scope of humanitarian and human rights law. This volume is useful for understanding the roots of the crisis and its circumstances before summer 2015. A detailed research on what has happened and is happening in Syria brings up numerous unsolved issues within the international community. International law provides several possibilities for conflict resolution and stabilising crises: timely and effective response of international community represented by United Nations and its agencies, in particular United Nations Security Council; enforcement of the responsibility to protect; imposing sanctions; bringing to international justice and internationally addressing elements of the crisis, e. g. terrorism. However, with the involvement of different international actors, the implementation of international law depends on the particular behaviour of each of them. This way even erga omnes norms become voluntary. In the case of Syria, the application of international law instruments has been accompanied by hesitation. Cross-regional, regional and internal tensions prevented international community from shaping a coherent and decisive response to mass atrocities taking place in Syria. Thus, this research questions the existing system of leverages and sets an ambitious goal of finding out how to change it.





Monitor Gesubsidieerde Rechtsbijstand 2015Monitor Gesubsidieerde Rechtsbijstand 2015
S.L. Peters, M. van Gammeren-Zoeteweij & L. Combrink-Kuiters

Toegang tot het recht is een belangrijke pijler voor een goed functionerende rechtstaat. De Raad voor Rechtsbijstand maakt zich sterk voor het belang van burgers als zij tegen juridische problemen aanlopen. Dat doet de Raad op basis van de Wet op de Rechtsbijstand. De Raad wijst rechtzoekenden de weg, bevordert een goede toegang tot het recht en stimuleert goede kwaliteit van de rechtsbijstand. Ook fungeert de Raad als kenniscentrum op het gebied van de gesubsidieerde rechtsbijstand. Hierbij is de Monitor Gesubsidieerde Rechtsbijstand (MGR) een belangrijk instrument. Elk jaar publiceert de Raad voor Rechtsbijstand deze monitor om te beschrijven hoe de toegang tot, de vraag naar en het aanbod van gesubsidieerde rechtsbijstand zich ontwikkelen. Door periodiek op een uniforme wijze informatie te verzamelen over een beperkt aantal indicatoren wordt inzicht geboden in trends door de jaren heen. Om tevens inzicht te bieden in de effecten van specifieke beleids-of wetswijzigingen wordt ook verslag gedaan van aanvullende onderzoeken.





Solving StatelessnessSolving Statelessness
Laura Van Waas & Melanie Khanna (eds)

Interest in statelessness has been steadily increasing since the late 1990s – within academia, among governments, at the UN and among civil society organisations. Research projects, mapping studies and doctrinal discussions have helped to clarify the challenges faced and our understanding of what is at stake. This has led to a fresh sense of purpose in addressing the issue and there is now a growing international movement engaged in finding solutions, spurred on by the UNHCR-led #IBelong Campaign to End Statelessness by 2024. Making meaningful progress towards this goal demands a new and more ambitious approach, one that moves beyond stocktaking to inspire solutions. As Volker Türk outlines in his introduction to this ground-breaking publication: “The global debates have moved beyond the need to explain the problem and its causes and consequences. The time has come to accelerate the momentum to implement durable solutions effectively.” The essays which have been collected in this edited volume all approach statelessness from a solutions perspective, looking at what is being done, and what more can be done, to address the issue. The first part of the book has a thematic focus, exploring perspectives, tools and techniques for solving statelessness which are relevant across different countries and regions. Chapters in the second part each have a regional focus, exploring region-specific challenges, developments and innovations set against the backdrop of the broader context of a global campaign to solve statelessness. With contributions from both scholars and practitioners, the book is likely to be of interest to anyone engaged in studying or implementing solutions for statelessness, including researchers, government policy-makers, staff of international or regional inter-governmental bodies and UN agencies, grass-roots and international civil society organisations, legal practitioners and advanced-level students.





Civis europaeus sum?Civis europaeus sum?
Guayasén Marrero González

Civis europaeus sum? Am I a citizen of the Union? This question, which is the cornerstone of this thesis, is also the question that people affected by an eventual State succession within an EU Member State need an answer to. The link between the nationality of an EU Member State and citizenship of the Union is, as it stands now, unbreakable. One cannot claim the enjoyment of the latter without holding the nationality of an EU Member State. Thus, those who, due to the operation of the State succession and the rules enacted in that context regarding nationality, lose the nationality of the predecessor-EU Member State cannot invoke “civis europaeus sum”. From the outset, individuals who lose the nationality of an EU Member State would lose EU citizenship and the rights attached to it. However, whilst EU citizenship is still not autonomous from Member State nationality, certain rights associated to the residence in both the potential newly independent States and the EU Member States can be frozen as an interim solution until such times as the former has completed the EU accession process.





Life ImprisonmentLife Imprisonment
Caterina Scalise

The purpose of this scripture is to learn more on a particular kind of confinement in prison: the life imprisonment. This book discusses the issue of life imprisonment. Does it imply that inmates may remain in prison for the rest of their life? Often, the public opinion thinks that the worst criminals may be released after few years and may commit other crimes against the society. In some states an inmate can die in prison. Is this kind of punishment in line with the punishment purposes?   May this kind of punishment violate inmates’ human rights? These questions will be examined in light of law and jurisprudence, in order to discover if life sentence is efficient. Some academics had described the life imprisonment as a hidden and slow death penalty. The European Court of Human Rights has drafted clear boards. Regardless of supporting the concept or not, life imprisonment or not, a change in prison policies is required.





Trust on the lineTrust on the line
Esther Keymolen

Governments, companies, and citizens all think trust is important. Especially today, in the networked era, where we make use of all sorts of e-services and increasingly interact and buy online, trust has become a necessary condition for society to thrive. But what do we mean when we talk about trust and how does the rise of the Internet transform the functioning of trust? This books starts off with a thorough conceptual analysis of trust, drawing on insights from -amongst othersphilosophy and sociology to sharpen our understanding of the topic. The book explains how the arrival of large systems – such as the internet- has changed the character of trust which today is no longer based on interpersonal interactions but has become completely mediated by technologies. Based on the layered building plan of the Internet itself, a new conceptual lens called 4 Cs is developed to analyse and understand trust in the networked era. The 4Cs refer to the 4 layers which all have to be taken into account to assess trust online, namely: context,code, codification, and curation. The 4cs bring together the firsthand experiences of the user (context), the sort of technology that is being used (code), the legal implication (codification) and business interests (curation) in order to get a clear picture of the trust issues that may arise. In the final part of the book some real-life cases are discussed (digital hotel keys, Airbnb, online personalization) to illustrate how trust –analysed through the 4 Cs lens- might flourish or be challenged in our current networked era.

Sociale MarkteconomieSociale Markteconomie
R. Slegers

Het begrip sociale markteconomie is in 1946 door Alfred Müller-Armack geïntroduceerd en heeft zijn beslag gekregen in artikel 3 lid 3 van het Verdrag betreffende de Europese Unie dat in 2009 in werking is getreden. Op grond van het artikel dient een sociale markteconomie mede de basis te vormen voor de duurzame ontwikkeling van Europa.  Dit onderzoek beantwoordt de vraag in hoeverre het concept sociale markteconomie als ordeningsprincipe (nog) een toekomst heeft in de Europese praktijk. Om tot de beantwoording van deze vraag te kunnen komen wordt allereerst uitgebreid stilgestaan bij het begrip socialemarkteconomie zelf en wordt het daaronder liggende concept  verduidelijkt. Vervolgens wordt bekeken op welke wijze het begrip zijn beslag in het Verdrag heeft gekregen, hoe het aldaar is ingebed en in hoeverre het vanuit en door de diverse Europese instellingen wordt gebezigd. Daarnaast is op exploratieve wijze geïnventariseerd hoe binnen het Europese discours over het begrip, het onderliggende concept sociale markteconomie en haar mogelijkheden in de Europese praktijk wordt gedacht.  Ria Slegers is sinds 2002 verbonden aan de Open Universiteit en vanaf 2010 werkzaam als docent/onderzoeker bij de vakgroep Strafrecht, Internationaal en Europees Recht van de faculteit Cultuur- en Rechtswetenschappen.





Crimmigration law in the European Union (Part 2)Crimmigration law in the European Union (Part 2)
A. Pahladsingh

In the European Union the Return Directive aims at establishing common standards and procedures to be applied in Member States for returning illegally staying third-country nationals (Article 1).  In part 2 of the serie on crimmigration in the EU this research is focusing on 2 other instruments of the Return Directive: the return decision and the detention.
As defined in Article 3 (4) a return decision “means an administrative or judicial decision or act, stating or declaring the stay of a thirdcountry national to be illegal and imposing or stating an obligation to return.” According to Article 6 of the Return Directive Member States are obliged to issue a return decision to any third-country national staying illegally in their territory, unless an express derogation is foreseen by Union Law.
As studies have showed in some countries of nationality there is for the illegal third-country national, who is expelled by EU Member States, a risk of criminalization in the form of criminal sanctions such as fines and detention. This is the situation when these countries of nationality criminalize emigration. Forced to return immediately to their countries of departure or nationality, these “inadmissibles” never fully become immigrants. I label this as double crimmigrations. These failed migrants become at least suspect citizens and they risk a form of double crimmigration in their countries of departure or nationality as they risk to be penalized twice: firstly by their involuntary return and secondly by the instigation of ciminal proceedings against them in the country of nationality. Double crimmigration should become a topic in EU return policy and security policy in which the EU should also formulate solutions.





For Justice and MercyFor Justice and Mercy
Ryan van Eijk, Gerard Loman, Theo W.A. de Wit (Eds.)

Publications on an international level and addressing prison chaplaincy from different (continental and disciplinary) angles are rare. Most publications regarding prison chaplaincy are monographies by theologians or prison chaplains, or books from (ex-)inmates witnessing their personal conversion. For Justice and Mercy offers international texts on the positioning of prison chaplaincy and examples from the praxis, as well as from several contexts and concepts. However, the focus is not exclusively on global perspectives. But the publication is certainly international for its contributors are academics or experienced prison chaplains from all continents who are offering their research and reflections from different scientific disciplines on aspects which are of interest for prison chaplaincy in general. Most articles are written from the catholic point of view. The reason is that the initiative for this publication was taken by the executive board of the International Commission of Catholic Pastoral Care (ICCPPC) to pay extra attention to its 65 years existence, and to the Year of Mercy.
