The Italian Yearbook of International Law: 1999

Hardback
In a world where diversity and pluralism are indispensable values for the balanced progress of international law, knowledge of the contribution that each State makes to the formation and development of international norms is increasingly important for both scholars and practitioners. The Italian Yearbook of International Law aims at making accessible to the English-speaking public the Italian contribution to the practice and literature of international law. The Yearbook is organised into three main sections. The first contains doctrinal contributions featuring articles on the European human rights system and its relation to customary international law, on international control of bribery and mergers, and on the problem of accountability for gross violations of human rights. The second section covers the Italian practice in the areas of 1) judicial decisions (including the important decisions in the Ocalan and Cermis cases), 2) diplomatic and parliamentary practice, 3) treaty practice, and 4) national legislation. Relevant materials are presented by way of introductory notes and concise legal analysis. The third part of the volume contains a systematic bibliographical index of Italian literature in the field of international law. The volume ends with an analytical index for ready consultation.
