The aim of this book is to provide the reader with overviews of certain international law issues which recently have been and continue to be central on the international scene in the coming years. These issues are subdivided in four parts: Part I, The Rise of International Criminal Law and the Creation of the International Criminal Court; Part II, Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law in the Face of Terrorism; Part III, Aspects of International Law of the Sea; and Part IV, Water in International Law.

Within this broad context, the book furthermore provides insights into aspects which are of particular interest, e.g. piracy in connection with ‘International law of the Sea’ or targeted killings in connection with ‘HR and IHL in the face of Terrorism.’ Examples of real-life problems are also laid out, e.g. those of the Nile and the Tigris/Euphrates Rivers in relation to ‘Water in International Law.’

Target group

The book will be of interest to professionals, diplomats, international lawyers and legal advisers. Law students will also benefit from it, particularly because the text is combined with extensive references for further study.
