An introduction to international institutional law by Jan Klabbers( )

55 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"International organizations are unusual creations: generated by and for their member-states, at the same time they often have to compete with those very states that created them. This complicated relationship frequently leads to some uncertainty in the law relating to international organizations: the legal argument of an organization will often be counter-pointed by an equally valid argument from a member-state. Professor Jan Klabbers is mindful of this complex relationship in his comprehensive analysis of international institutional law. As well as describing the law as it applies to legal institutions in chapters that cover dispute settlement, financing and treaty-making. This is a key textbook for advanced-level students of law and of international relations."--Jacket

The internationalization of law and legal education by Jan Klabbers( )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The internationalization of commerce and contemporary life has led to a globalization of legal standards and practices that is beginning to be reflected in legal education. This volume gathers the insights of leading legal scholars from numerous jurisdictions to consider how the culture and the education of their own lawyers serve or should serve the new international reality. Law firms, law schools, universities, courts and other legal institutions must make themselves more "international" to support the national interests of their clients and governments better. This requires new attitudes, new legal rules and new forms of practical instruction. The essays collected in this volume explore the reality of legal globalization and suggest some ways in which the emerging multinational and multicultural legal order could be made more just and effective
The constitutionalization of international law by Jan Klabbers( Book )

31 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book examines one of the most debated issues in current international law: to what extent the international legal system has constitutional features comparable to what we find in national law. This question has become increasingly relevant in a time of globalization, where new international institutions and courts are established to address international issues. Constitutionalization beyond the nation state has for many years been discussed in relation to the European Union. This book asks whether we now see constitutionalization taking place also at the global level."--Jacket
International law by Jan Klabbers( Book )

33 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and Italian and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written by one of the world's leading international lawyers, this is a landmark publication in the teaching of international law. International law can be defined as 'the rules governing the legal relationship between nations and states', but reality is much more complex, with political, diplomatic and socio-economic factors shaping the law and its application. This refreshingly clear, concise textbook encourages students to view international law as a dynamic system of organizing the world. Bringing international law back to its first principles, the book is organized around four questions: where does it come from? to whom does it apply? how does it resolve conflict? what does it say? Building on these questions with both academic rigour and clarity of expression, Professor Klabbers breathes life and energy into the subject. Footnotes point students to the wider academic debate while chapter introductions and final remarks reinforce learning"--Provided by publisher
Research handbook on the law of international organizations by Jan Klabbers( Book )

24 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This pioneering Research Handbook with contributions from renowned experts, provides an overview of the general doctrines making up the law of international organizations. The approach of this book is taken from a novel perspective: that of the tension between functionalism and constitutionalism. In doing so, this Handbook presents not only practically relevant information, but also provides a tool for understanding the ways in which international organizations work. It has separate chapters on specific 'constitutional' topics and on two specific organizations: the EU and the UN. Research Hand
Treaty conflict and the European Union by Jan Klabbers( Book )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jan Klabbers questions how membership of the European Union affects treaties concluded between the Union's member states and third states, both treaties concluded before EU membership and those concluded after joining. Following a discussion of the public international law rules on treaty conflict, the author analyses the case-law of the European Court of Justice and examines how such conflicts are approached in state practice."--BOOK JACKET

Normative pluralism and international law : exploring global governance( Book )

17 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses conflicts involving different normative orders: what happens when international law prohibits behavior, but the same behavior is nonetheless morally justified or warranted? Can the actor concerned ignore international law under appeal to morality? Can soldiers escape legal liability by pointing to honor? Can accountants do so under reference to professional standards? How, in other words, does law relate to other normative orders? The assumption behind this book is that law no longer automatically claims supremacy, but that actors can pick and choose which code to follow. The novelty resides not so much in identifying conflicts, but in exploring if, when and how different orders can be used intentionally. In doing so, the book covers conflicts between legal orders and conflicts involving law and honor, self-regulation, lex mercatoria, local social practices, bureaucracy, religion, professional standards and morality

An introduction to international organizations law by Jan Klabbers( Book )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third edition of this market leading textbook (previously called An Introduction to International Institutional Law) is written in a clear, three-part structure. It is centred on the dynamics of the relationships between international organisations and their organs, staff, and the outside world. It discusses the essential topics of the law of international organisations, including powers, finances, and privileges and immunities, as well as membership rules, institutional structures, and accountability. The newly revised text has been updated extensively to reflect the entry into force of the EU's Lisbon Treaty (and Croatia's accession) and new articles on the responsibility of international organisations. The chapters have also been reorganised for further clarity. Two new chapters, on the international civil service and the relations between organisations and other institutions, respectively, have been added.--
