Venzke: How Interpretation Makes International Law: On Semantic Change and Normative Twists

Posted on Actualizado enn

Ingo Venzke (Univ. of Amsterdam – Amsterdam Center for International Law) has published How Interpretation Makes International Law: On Semantic Change and Normative Twists (Oxford Univ. Press 2012). Here’s the abstract:

Challenging the classic narrative that sovereign states make the law that constrains them, this book argues that treaties and other sources of international law form only the starting point of legal authority. Interpretation can shift the meaning of texts and, in its own way, make law. In the practice of interpretation actors debate the meaning of the written and customary laws, and so contribute to the making of new law. In such cases it is the actor’s semantic authority that is key – the capacity for their interpretation to be accepted and become established as new reference points for legal discourse.

Posted on

Kern Alexander (Univ. of Zurich – Law) & Rahul Dhumale (UBS) have published Research Handbook on International Financial Regulation (Edward Elgar Publishing 2012). The table of contents is here. Here’s the abstract:

The globalisation of financial markets has attracted much academic and policymaking commentary in recent years, especially with the growing number of banking and financial crises and the current credit crisis that has threatened the stability of the global financial system. This major new Research Handbook sets out to address some of the fundamental issues in financial regulation from a comparative and international perspective and to identify some of the main research themes and approaches that combine economic, legal and institutional analysis of financial markets.

The UN Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development – What Happened?

Posted on Actualizado enn

With more than 40,000 attendees from national and local governments, international organizations, businesses, and civil society, as well as more than fifty heads of state and close to 500 ministers, the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development (“Rio+20” or “UNCSD”), which took place June 20-22, 2012, was one of the largest international conferences in recent history. For the upcoming High Level Meeting on the Rule of Law at the National and International Levels later this month in New York and the recently launched Sustainable Development Solutions Network, both sponsored by the UN, Rio+20 laid important environment-focused groundwork related to governance and the rule of law.

Its name invites comparison with the monumental achievements of the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development (“Earth Summit”), at which governments endorsed several binding and non-binding international agreements that have shaped the international discourse about sustainable development in the intervening twenty years.
