Max Planck Yearbook of United Nations Law: 2008

For more than 10 years now, the Max Planck Yearbook of United Nations Law has become a much sought after forum for essays in international law related to the UN. Volume 12 (2008) again contains articles dealing with a variety of topics such as Security Council Powers and the Exigencies of Justice after War and Revitalising the United Nations Human Rights Special Procedures Mechanisms as a Means of Achieving and Maintaining International Peace and Security; as well as an article on the topic of the Principle of Non-Refoulement at Sea and the Effectiveness of Asylum Protection. The volume also contains in depth articles dealing with Rule of Law. This is only a selection, showing the wide range of topics. This volume is therefore again a must for any academic or practitioner involved in international law and questions concerning the United Nations.
