9780199647064: The Law of State Immunity

The doctrine of state immunity bars a national court from adjudicating or enforcing claims against foreign states. This doctrine, the foundation for high-profile national and international decisions such as those in the Pinochet case and the Arrest Warrant cases, has always been controversial. The reasons for the controversy are many and varied. Some argue that state immunity paves the way for state violations of human rights. Others argue that the customary basis for the doctrine is not a sufficient basis for regulation and that codification is the way forward. Furthermore, it can be argued that even when judgments are made in national courts against other states, the doctrine makes enforcement of these decisions impossible.

This fully restructured new edition provides a detailed analysis of these issues in a more clear and accessible manner. It provides a nuanced assessment of the development of the doctrine of state immunity, including a general comprehensive overview of the plea of immunity of a foreign state, its characteristics, and its operation as a bar to proceedings in national courts of another state. It includes a coherent history and justification of the plea of state immunity, demonstrating its development from the absolute to the restrictive phase, arguing that state immunity can now be seen to be developing into a third phase which uses immunity allocate adjudicative and enforcement jurisdictions between the foreign and the territorial states. The United Nations Convention on Jurisdictional Immunities of states and their Property is thoroughly assessed. Through a detailed examination of the sources of law and of English and US case law, and a comparative analysis of other types of immunity, the authors explore both the law as it stands, and what it could and should be in years to come.

Recensione:

Review from previous edition '...outstanding analysis...well written and superbly documented work...a must have for any public or private collection shelving the classics of international legal literature.' ( American Society of International Law)

'This in-depth study will be one of the most consulted works on international law. Those who specialize in new areas of international law, whether human rights, environmental law, or international criminal law, should certainly read it....This is a work of rigorous scholarship. As an authoritative monograph , it will be of inestimable value to practitioners. And its careful review of the many theoretical issues will be valuable in helping to fashion the law in many countries...' ( Anthony Aust, International and Comparative Law Quarterly)

'Hazel Fox has long been known as the author of some the most probing scholarship on the relationship between international law and national law. In this substantial new volume, she sets out the most comprehensive and thoughtful analysis to date of a subect that is, as she so clearly demonstrates, no longer confined wither to immunities or to states....There is a great deal of interest and value in this book, both for scholars and practitioners. For specialists in the topic it will be an indispensable text.' ( Alan Boyle, The Law Review Quarterly)

This is a work of rigorous scholarship. As an authoritative monograph, it will be of inestimable value to practitioners....The book is user-friendly in its detailed list of contents, lavish use of headings, and sub-headings, clear scene-setters for each chapter, regular summaries and a good index....State immunity is a difficult subject for students, teachers, and practitioners of international law, and there has long been need for a good book on it ... practitioners will have already found the book essential for their work, a sign of a book being instantly indispensable. ( International and Comparative Law Quarterly)
