Jean d’Aspremont (Univ. of Amsterdam – Law) has posted The Articles on the Responsibility of International Organizations: Magnifying the Fissures in the Law of International Responsibility (International Organizations Law Review, forthcoming). Here’s the abstract:

Posted on Actualizado enn

10 October 2012 – With its many years of experience and its entrenched neutrality, the United Nations is ideally placed to help countries establish the rule of law, a vital factor in post-conflict reconstruction, overall development and enforcing fundamental rights, a top UN official said today.

“Newly-constituted governments are looking to the United Nations for advice and assistance in constitution-making processes, reforming justice and security institutions and dealing with legacies of atrocities,” Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson told the General Assembly committee that deals with international legal matters, also known as the Sixth Committee.

“The United Nations has a comparative advantage in providing this assistance,” Mr. Eliasson stressed, noting that it is currently helping 150 Member States on various aspects of the rule of law. “We have a broad range of experience dating back many years. The UN brings neutrality and the weight of the international community to the work. We are also using out convening power to advance the issues and the debate.” Leer el resto de esta entrada »

Minnesota Legal Studies Research Paper No. 12-40

Customary international law is one of the three main sources of international law; lamentably, it has historically received little attention from law and economics scholars, despite providing rich material for economic analysis. In this chapter, we provide a concise overview of recent research on customary international law from a law and economics perspective, summarizing the main results while modestly extending some of the analyses presented.
