Vagias: The Territorial Jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court
 
Michail Vagias (Hague Univ. of Applied Sciences) has published The Territorial Jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court (Cambridge Univ. Press 2014). Here’s the abstract:
There are many variables of territoriality available to national courts under contemporary international law. Does the same apply to the International Criminal Court? And if so, what are the limits to the teleological expansion of the Court’s territorial jurisdiction as regards, for example, partial commission of a crime in State not Party territory, crimes committed over the internet or crimes committed in occupied territories? Michael Vagias’s analysis of the law and procedure surrounding the territorial jurisdiction of the Court examines issues such as the application of localisation theories of territoriality and the means of interpretation for article 12(2)(a); the principle of legality (nullum crimen sine lege) and human rights law for the interpretation of jurisdictional provisions; compétence de la compétence; crimes committed over the internet; and the procedure for jurisdictional objections.

When: 19-20 March 2015
Where: Foksal Press Centre, Foksal Street 3/5, 00-366 Warsaw, Poland
The annexation of Crimea and the subsequent Russian interference in Eastern Ukraine pose a challenge to contemporary, widely-accepted system of international norms. This deliberate attempt to change political and legal order established after the Second World War requires in-depth assessment through the prism of law. It is of utmost importance to replace “law talk” with rigorous legal analysis of those events given their possible implications for the international law. Special attention shall be given to the following legal issues: the use of force and the threat of use of force, the crime of aggression, annexation, incorporation, occupation, recognition/non-recognition, state responsibility, individual responsibility, statehood and self-determination in international law, territorial integrity, state support for the armed bands, groups, irregulars or mercenaries, the nature of direct participation of regular armed forces without insignia in combat.
Call for papers:
Submission of papers proposals:
The Organizing Committee of the Conference “The Case of Crimea in the Light of International Law: its Nature and Implications” now invites proposals for conference papers.
Proposals for papers may include both theoretical studies and selected case studies and shall fall within the following streams:
1. Self-determination and the right to secession (Whether they are contradictory or complementary? What is the scope of the right to self-determination? What is the relation between self-determination and autonomy? What are the implications of the annexation of Crimea with respect to the Eastern Ukraine?)
2. Defining the use of force, aggression, armed attack (What are the legitimate reactions to unlawful use of force? Does use of force or an armed attack constitute a war?, What is the scope of the prohibition of use of force established in the UN Charter?)
3. International responsibility (state responsibility and the responsibility of the individual) (What are the consequences of the state’s international responsibility?, What is the responsibility for the violation of humanitarian law?, Are targeted sanctions enforcing responsibility against individual or a state?
4. Recognition in international law (Is a conflict between constitutive and normative theories still relevant? What is the impact of non-recognition on the scope of international obligations? What is the role of recognition in creating international subjectivity?
5. Reactions of international community (Are economic sanctions/ targeted sanctions effective? When and what kind of sanctions are effective? What kind of sanctions are appropriate for flagrant breaking of international law? What are the responsibilities of the international community in the case of an annexation of foreign territory?)
